New Listing review
5/5 stars
This renovated home was perfect for our stay. It was very clean and comfortable. Beds were great and the shower was wonderful. Everything we needed was there at the beginning of our trip. We had a great stay in this house. Close to beaches and restaurants. Kitchen was great also. And I can’t say enough good things about Ken, our host. He made sure everything was to our satisfaction, even calling to make sure. We would definitely stay there again or at any of Ken’s properties.
- Catherine

These guests are very kind. I was glad I could put them in this awesome house due to an issue at their original home, which was close to this one.
