It was as described online. The location was excellent but you needed a car. Probably being British we do not always rely on cars but you do need one in Sherley.

Absolutely a wonderful and relaxing weekend for our Bridal Getaway. A bit windy on Thursday and Friday but gorgeous weather. I love the nature that was all around us. Great for the Autumn Equinox.

Response from John:
Well I witnessed the cleaning crew who left the house in immaculate condition as I completed my final check prior to leaving it to my guests who stayed for the week. Upon my return I noticed crumbs and small bits of food left in the sink and on the countertops. When this happens you will surely encounter get ants. Bedrooms and their adjoining bathrooms were left as always in pristine condition!

Plenty of space for our group of seven. Loved the full ensuites for each bedroom. Super convenient to Smith Point Beach. Great light and cross breeze (the weather was cool, so we had the AC off some of the days). Yard was the perfect size for cornhole, and open concept 2nd floor made eating and boardgaming easy peasy.

John was a great host, very responsive, and friendly guy. His home is amazing! The photos on airbnb don't do it justice. We started our day up on the roof deck watching the sunrise...totally awesome! He's 5 minutes from Smith's Point beach, and we drove there and parked free in the early morning and walked on the beach, which our daughter just loved (as did her parents!). John's house looks brand new, the beds were super comfortable, and his kitchen is totally outfitted. We dined in every day :-)). He has a large common room, which is lit so well, both from natural light, and a great lighting set-up, with comfortable furniture. Every room has a bathroom, which made our guests very comfortable, and of course the pool added another area to hang out. He has a large deck, with BBQ and chairs and table, which is designed really well, right off the back of the house. Also has an outdoor shower. Easy street and driveway parking, and a very safe and friendly neighborhood. We stayed for 4 nights, but really we wished we had stayed the whole week. There is just so much to enjoy in and around his home. To think that this cost us half of what a hotel would have cost for our party of 6, is hard to believe. This was a great deal, an enjoyable time, and a memorable vacation. Thank you John, we hope to be back next summer! If you're on the fence about this place, go for it, you will not be disappointed!

We had a great time in this beautiful home. It is very nicely maintained with a beautiful private outdoor pool. The beach and playground are within walking distance of the house. The host is very accomodating.

As others have shared, I too am an "empty-nester" and do not use my home as much as I'd like. Having so much available space for some time now, I've been searching for a creative, mutually beneficial way to share it with others. Airbnb offers me that opportunity!
Having lived in NYC many years and hosting a number of people at our family's 10 unit brownstone (which by the way, there was never a shortage of interest) there have been many pleasant experiences and memories of hosting gracious, kind, and interesting people from around the world!
