We could not have asked for a more perfect stay! Charles and Dan were very sweet and thoughtful, loaning us an umbrella, cooler and chairs and lots of towels, and asking us if we needed anything at the store when they would make a trip. They even had an icepack and icy hot for an injury! Couldn't recommend them any higher :)

Loved the location. Hosts very helpful informed us of restaurant specials and food was great..supplied beach chairs,umbrella and towels which saved us money in rentals. The studio apt was lovely very well appointed an efficient use of space. We will return☺

My hosts offered a practically well planned, tastefully designed, spotlessly clean studio with nice views and light through the large well-curtained windows. The bathroom and towels etc are luxurious, the bed and bedding top quality. The kitchen space offers a small fridge, coffee maker, sink, cooking pad, dishes and other basics. The studio is completely discreet from the owners' private home and quiet, with no noise from the street. There is ample, safe street parking immediately in front of the house with an attractive park across the street. The house is in an older, gentrified neighborhood a few blocks from major arteries leading into downtown and the beaches. The hosts were graciously available, without being in any way invasive once I arrived. Obviously I give them a strong positive recommendation

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!
