I didn't stay at Gerald's place, but our wedding photographers gushed about how fantastic the location, art, and view was! Gerald was great communication about the location and check in. Westport is a gem!

This was an amazing AirBnB experience! Gerald was a wonderful host - very responsive in communicating in advance of our stay, and very welcoming. Once we arrived he showed us a map of the town, asked if we needed anything, and provided access to all amenities that were listed on the web site. The home is beautiful - open, spacious, creative, artistic. The Lakeview Room is bright, clean, and comfortable with a gorgeous view of the sunrise in the morning. A lovely experience from start to finish! Thank you very much, Gerald, and I hope to visit again another time!

Gerald was very accommodating and generous throughout the planning of my trip. He was there to greet me and available throughout my stay. The building houses an art gallery which is quite delightful! It is right on the water and my room had a lovely view. It is close to many shops and restaurants. A perfect location and a generous host.

Beautiful location, water on 2 sides. Gerald was welcoming, even though I arrived late on Good Friday evening. The room/kitchen/bathrooms were all very clean, more than adequately equipped. Would love to come back and stay when I have more time to enjoy the surroundings.
