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.

I spent just one night after hiking a trail nearby, and I found the place just perfect. It has a fantastic view of the lake, the room was clean and cozy and it has his own temperature control. The kitchen is huge very well equipped. Gerald is a charming person and was nice to chat with him.

Yes, Gerald made me feel most welcome and was very helpful. The description was accurate. The neighbourhood was very pleasant, located as it is in the town of Westport.
