We stayed a week and loved our stay at Bear's Place. We especially loved the lanai surrounded by flowering bushes and tall, green vegetation. We enjoyed the sunsets from the lanai, and cooked and ate meals there too. Our room (the Hibiscus, I believe) was roomy and contained everything a traveler could possibly need, right down to plastic wrap and... More

We stayed for 2 weeks in the Hibiscus suite on the main floor and we loved it! Very spacious, comfortable bed (and this was the smallest of the 4 rooms!), well-equipped kitchenette, large lanai, peaceful location. It’s in a residential neighborhood, with zero traffic noise (it’s a bit off the highway) with space between homes, but the roosters will start... More

We stayed for 6 nights in the Hibiscus studio. It was very roomy, and immaculate, with an extremely well supplied kitchenette.It took no time at all to feel comfortable in. In the fridge upon arrival were fresh cut papayas, cookies, jam, and juice. The neighbourhood is quiet, except for the occasional barking dog, and has a brand new road. Lush... More

We stayed for 3 nights in February and had booked the Orchid suite. It is exactly as the photos show it to be on the website. The suite was large, had a fully equipped kitchen, 2 sofas, a very comfortable bed, TV, large fully furnished lanai and the property had high quality furnishings. This suite has everything you need for... More

Our stay at Bears' Place was one of the best during a 4 week/4 island trip. The Orchid Suite proved to be a truly lovely place to come back to every day of our ten night stay. It was very spacious, immaculate and comfortable. The full kitchen was such a bonus and very well equipped . Sunny morning breakfast on... More

We stayed in the Pulmeria suite and enjoyed it very much, very clean, bright, large and quiet. Nice view of the coast line, though the vog made it hazy at times. Nanette was nice and friendly, left treats every day. Huge lanai, easy place to relax. Will stay in the Orchid suite the next time as it has a full... More

We liked everything about this place. The hostess was very friendly and the room was nice and clean. Excellent lanai and garden. The owner has put a lot of thought into making our stay comfortable: beach towels and chairs, boogey boards, small kitchenette on lanai, fresh fruit… This was the best stay of our trip. Much better than the Marriot... More
