We stayed a weekend for a cousins wedding we attended in October ‘08. Quiet neighborhood but close to downtown. House was very clean. Larger than we expected. Bright and sunny. Big backyard deck with outdoor shower. Bathroom has separate tub and shower. Three bedrooms – beds were comfortable. Closet space was minimal but tons of hooks and nooks to put things. We hate too many trinkets and dust collectors so this was heaven to us. The owner's family (mother, father, sister and her husband) live across the street and were very accommodating. Great welcome and made us feel like family. All amenities were provided - lots of cutlery, glasses, blankets and towels etc. Owners leave some food items there for your visit - including a new bottle of original maple syrup for your pancakes in the morning!! Delicious also on french toast. The night before the wedding we had family members over for dinner and they were impressed by the home. Weather was great - walks along the dirt road by the bay (beautiful views!!) was a draw to make us come back again. Beach was a walk away.
Two things you may consider before booking. This is a pet friendly home - if pet allergies are a concern you may want to bring your allergy medication. Stairs up to the loft is steep – great spot for kids, huge area with TV and king size bed but difficult for elders to climb.
Owners are planning to expand the home in the future so this is a steal for a great location at the moment. They also gave us names and telephone numbers of two other homes on the street that rent if we wanted to do an extended family visit with other members. We will be back!!
