Great home away from home for families!
My husband, our 2 teens & I stayed for 4 nights. This was my 2nd time booking through VRBO as I'm hesitant on purchasing anything online, but the owner was great and willing to answer all my questions on the phone and via email when I was booking our stay. The owner's niece greeted us upon our arrival, gave us a tour of the cottage and provided contact info should we need anything since the owner had gone into labor and was on another island to give birth.
The cottage is a separate unit in the back so the picture with the home & car parked in the driveway might be misleading. The picture is their private residence & is on there so you'll recognize it when you arrive. The owner told this to me during our first conversation, which was fine by me. We had concerns that we would disturb the owner & her family if we came home late or left early, but it really wasn't an issue. The cottage is as pictured. We were really impressed with how beautiful the place was for a rental, though we know we were one of the first few renters to date. The property is walking distance from Front Street, where there are restaurants and retail shops. The owner also has her own shop there.
There are 2 king size beds in each room so there is plenty of space for two people, even a third if your child decides to climb into bed with you in the middle of the night :-) Hangers were provided & there are drawers if you'd like to empty out your suitcase. There is an LCD TV in each bedroom & in the main room so it was perfect for my husband to watch his basketball game, while the kids watched their own show & I watched a movie. A/C & ceiling fans are also in each bedroom & the main room so it was easy to quickly cool one or all the rooms as needed. We liked that there was a kitchen available because it was a good way to limit our expenses of dining out. Since the cottage is new & there was no cooking oil & condiments, except salt and pepper, we purchased a few items that we needed then left it for others to use. There is a washer & dryer available, but because of it's location (outside in an enclosed closet on the side of the building), I don't know if I bothered anyone when I used them at night (there is a second attached 1 bedroom unit, but I'm not sure if it is the owner's friend or relative who is staying in it).
Overall, I would definitely recommend this property and would not hesitate to rent it again.
