Family Vacation

Emilee L.

We came for our daughters wedding with 4 children under 5 and 6 adults. The space fit us all perfect and was in an ideal location for us. The bathrooms need a little update and the shower upstairs needed the doors to be fixed, but other than that, it was a great place for a great price!

Great Place to Stay!


This was the perfect place for our vacation stay! Location was awesome. Place was clean and spacious. Everything we needed was provided (soap, shampoo, conditioner, trash bags, dish soap, etc). Only complaint was that the air conditioner wasn’t super effective against the heat. But we would gladly stay here again!

Easy to communication and detailed instructions. The house location is great! You can walk around the island and it is close to restaurants.

An amazing experience!

Overall Comment

This property was as amazing as the photos look! The host provided regular and clear communication via text, email, and the Hospitality app. The beds were comfortable, all amenities were in good working order, the property was very clean and well maintained. This property fit our needs perfectly, our 5 day stay was far too short and we are looking so forward to returning soon.

Perfect Spring Break!

Overall Comment

I stayed at this perfect location with my daughter and her friends. I had the lower studio and the girls had the upper area. It was a cute, clean and a spacious property. Walking distance to all the best things to do on the island. Very close to the ferry. I would stay here again!

Everything but communication was great here. Would stay again if I knew the cockroach problem was taken care of

Hey Mario- This wasn’t the right place for you and you were already complaining and questioning it before you booked. But it was inexpensive. Just to be clear there is not a cockroach problem in this unit. We use professional exterminators every few months as a preventive on all of our 130 units to make sure we never have any issues. We do know that when youre close to the bay, on an island in the middle of the harbor bugs can appear sometimes, however it is not a bug issue as you state here. You insisted “we needed to make it right” so we gave you almost 3 nights back in a refund for the bug you saw and sent someone out to help with the issue. Hopefully 3 free nights helped ease the inconvenience a bit;)

We were had a lovely stay here for the week we were here! Great location, beautiful neighborhood, just footsteps from the water. The property was very responsive when we had questions. The house is older so it’s not perfect but it was very charming & was great for our stay. My only heads up is that the bottom bedroom setup is a little misleading. It says the living room has a queen bed (which there is a photo shown with a queen bed in the living room) but they’re actually talking about a pull out couch in the living room which is also where the real bed is. This should’ve been labeled properly on the ad so we weren’t surprised when we got there to see the queen bed and pull out couch were about 3ft from each other. We made it work but just a heads up!
