There is nothing I didn't like. They treated us like family, and my wife and I feel blessed that we got in because we found it to be a popular place. The stay was worth every penny and more.

Staying here was amazing! We LOVED every bit of it. We had the single bedroom place and it's like staying in a full home, actually because it IS a full home! It's absolutely beautiful, perfectly clean with every amenity available. The kitchen is fully stocked and although we only stayed one night, we enjoyed hot chocolate, tea and coffee. The location is close to the airport yet in a very quiet neighborhood just a walk from the ocean. We enjoyed a very quiet peaceful sleep on a super comfortable bed. We had an early flight the next morning and the owner brought us a hot breakfast of eggs and fresh muffins at 7 am and then also drove us to the airport. How wonderful! We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone. The owner is very helpful, friendly and gracious as well and does an amazing job making sure you have everything you need!
