Quirky and roomy

  • 5 of 5

Great home near town and the airport. Everything you'd need in the kitchen, laundry and bath and more is provided. Seems bigger because of the multi levels and loft. Master suite is like another whole apartment. Enjoyed the bikes. We'll be back!

Great place for the family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying @ Banana House. Duel-Family stay w/ 4 adults & 4 kids. Located on a quiet street, close to playground & park, not too far from shopping & eats, & not too far from beach. All amenities I would expect, full kitchen, linens, towels, dishwasher, washing machine & dryer, & plenty of space for family time. We loved the fenced in backyard, wagon, bicycles, beach umbrella, & toys for the kiddos. Our family was VERY pleased with our stay & we truly enjoyed Banana House. Already planning our next stay!!!!!!!!!

This house is absolutely precious! It has a super cute nautical charm & plenty of space. It's really close to nightlife & shopping. Everything in the house works great, too. I will definitely stay on this property again and I can't wait to show it to my other friends and family!

St Simon's beach visit

We enjoyed the Banana House. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us. The starter supplies were helpful. We enjoyed the easy access to downtown and the beach.

Awesome - Quirky, comfortable, and convenient!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Banana House for my sister's 30th birthday weekend and had a truly fantastic time. The house wasn't perfect - it is very old and, in some places, its age showed. I was also disappointed in the back deck and lack of mirrors, but shortcomings aside, it compensated with plenty of quirky charm, comfort and convenience.

Charm and comfort: The house has a unique style, combining rustic and traditional elements, with some beautiful decor and furniture pieces. We enjoyed the loft and cabin-like feel of much of the house. It was clean and organized and had a very homey feel. We were so comfortable just chilling around the house, I almost didn't want to leave to the beach.

Convenience: This house had almost anything you could possibly think to need. All the beach stuff was super useful since we didn't bring much with us - there were towels, chairs, coolers, boogie boards and more. There was also entertainment provided for all ages, including bikes, board games, blocks and more. The kitchen and pantries were stocked full and there were plenty of extra pillows and blankets. The beach and town were just a short drive (or bike ride) away.

As stated above, my only two criticisms were of the porch and mirror situations.

Porch: The back screened-in porch was too disorganized and over-crowded, and some beach items had not been adequately cleaned or were broken. This made it feel unclean and uninviting - a shame because otherwise it had a cute sitting area that would have made for a great place to relax and have morning tea or whatever.

Mirrors: There wasn't a single full length mirror in the whole house, which is a serious problem when you have 4 women trying to get dressed. EVERY house, hotel, and otherwise should always have at least one full length mirror in it!

Other than that, we had a wonderful time and cannot thank the owners enough for everything!
