Steve and Kathy were very accommodating - with very late notice they made all efforts to ensure we were comfortable. They went above and beyond and the location was very easy and conveniently near the ferry terminal. Highly recommend their place :)

Overall it was a great stay! The suite was super clean and the bathroom / house was stocked with soap, and all the other basics you would need. We only stayed for the night, but highly recommend it.

Thanks Steve and Kathy for a wonderful stay in your home. The listing was exactly as posted in the pictures. The bed was very comfortable. The living room was nice and spacious. It came with a small fridge and microwave. So if you need anything else kitchen wise, you'll need to go upstairs to the shared area. The whole place was very clean. We made changes to our reservation at the last minute and the hosts were extremely accommodating, even with us arriving after 11pm. Steve and Kathy are very welcoming. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. We even woke up to some deer nearby one morning. Would definitely stay here again.

Response from Steve & Kathy:
Thank you again Pauline for staying with us, should you stay in the space down stairs again we upgraded it some more, there is a kitchen cart/unit, coffee filter machine, kettle, toaster, cups, glasses and an additional mirror for makeup now to place on the dining table. Take care! Steve and Kathy.

Steve and Kathy非常友善;很耐心的给了我们在附近游玩和美食的指引。房子的地理位置非常好,距离Neck Point Park和Pipers Lagoon Park仅有不到十分钟的车程。我和我的朋友都很欣赏屋内的装修风格。
