Our whole stay was great. Very accommodating and easy to contact. The place is really nice, clean, and easy to walk to downtown. I highly recommend it!

We really enjoyed our stay with Charles and Dan. Very easy to communicate with them and their place was great! We loved the pool and they gave us great tips for the area. The kitchen area was great and loved how spacious their place was. Would definitely recommend their place and would stay again when we are in the area! Close to beaches and everything! Thanks for the hospitality!

This place surpassed my high expectations! Absolutely 5 stars start to finish. Didn't even use the pool but it was gorgeous. The whole place felt like a hotel but way better. I felt more safe and comfortable than a hotel! At a fraction of the price. These guys make airbnb look good

Great location with a park to walk in right across the street, beautiful guest room and a lovely secluded pool to sunbathe and relax. Hosts were friendly and amazingly hospitable. (Sunbathing too long? An ice cold water appears without asking!) This was our first air b&b experience and we will definitely use it again.

Our stay at Gillespie on the Park was great! The place was very bright, clean, and recently updated. We utilized the balcony a lot. It was located conveniently for us since we had a car. Our hosts were very responsive, helpful with our luggage, and welcomed any questions. We would definitely recommend!
