“Great 1st Experience”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The cottage is exactly as the pictures, my family and I stayed this memorial weekend. The supermarket was very close by and Lido public beach was only minutes away.

Mo and Phil were great host they checked if we needed anything. They also gave us a later check because they were not booked for the next day. It was a wonderful 1st experience.

They have all the beach neccesities you need (beach toys for the kids chairs, and umbrellas).

“Tranquil Oasis in the Heart of the City”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this delightful cottage. Its beautiful tropical backyard and tastefully decorated interior made it the perfect spot to relax for a week. We brought games and books along, but wouldn't have needed to because the hosts have a great stock of both! They were helpful without being intrusive. Close to all amenities. There is no pool there but the public one at Lido Beach is not far away.

Wonderful, gracious hosts and a charming cottage walking distance to shops and restaurants! This was a perfect location and set up for a fantastic reunion/weekend getaway. Our hosts provided walking tour maps of the neighborhood - quaint local shops and restaurants - and the cottage is a short drive to fabulous beaches!
The cottage is a gem, perfectly suited for indoor/outdoor entertaining, with beautiful, secluded gardens and a gourmet kitchen.
I would definately recommend for a family/ friends getaway, or a romantic couples retreat.
The owners are a wealth of local information for activities, dining, and shopping!

This house was perfect for our stay. The updates are even nicer than the photos, with every amenity we could have desired. The backyard is a lush tropical garden (loved the tiki area).
The owners were there immediately to answer every need. We enjoyed the extra touches like the extensive library of menus and brochures for local dining and activities. Walk to downtown restaurants and still accessible to the beach. Thanks for all the beach chairs and umbrellas.

Excellent accommodation which was in a perfect location for our holiday. The house was fully equipped with all the necessities for comfortable living and beach equipment. Maureen and Patrick were perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. We would thoroughly recommend this holiday home. We will definitely be staying there again.

“Home from home”
Reviewed October 1, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

An attractively furnished small house in a quiet residential area. It had all we needed for a comfortable stay (4 days). Thoughtful touches included filter paper in coffee maker, maps of area, reading matter - indeed we needed to be there much longer to appreciate it all. Instructions were minimal but everything worked well. The garden was pretty, typical furniture and ornaments. Owner's husband was helpful, dealing with trash bins for us.
We would have liked a telephone but had offer of the one next door. Would also have liked space for our car under the carport.

“Best beach vacation rental I could have asked for!”

I cannot say enough great things about this vacation rental. The house is close to the beach, Main Street, and in a great local/family area. The interior of the house is very up to date--great furniture, nice tv, everything you could need for the full kitchen. The backyard is absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed playings cards and board games every night in the backyard with light from the tiki torches. The renters have anything and everything you could need to help make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible--from extra beach towels, to sunscreen, to water bottles and condiments.
