This was our first Airbnb experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Todd and his family were wonderful hosts; providing extras like bicycles and kayaks if desired, as well as plenty of local recommendations. We were able to go car free for the majority of our time there and bike to the beach and First State Park, which definitely made the trip a wonderful experience.
Todd and Isabelle were the greatest! They were incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home. Upon our arrival, they took us on a quick tour of the neighborhood and were more than willing to give us excellent restaurant and activity recommendations - all of which we tried out. We loved Chick's, eating local pizza on the beach, biking to First Landing State Park... The room was very comfortable and the outdoor kitchen is as impressive as it looks. They even allowed us to stay an extra night in their refurbished Airstream trailer. We loved having the opportunity to spend time with such a kind and generous couple and hope to come back soon!
This place was as described - a welcoming atmosphere. Todd & Isabelle were very friendly and most helpful during our stay. The outdoor kitchen was an incredible amenity and their backyard garden truly amazing. Great biking neighborhood. We followed Todd's advice and biked to the beach (bayside) and had a wonderful day - stopped by Taste for sandwiches (best ever) on the way home. During our stay, there was another guest (a couple) in the airstream, in the backyard, and the small bathroom, in the house, is used by all.
Todd and Isabel have the perfect home and location for hosting guest. The amenities that they provide are all that you could ask for. We were welcomed with a beer on the back patio and Todd gave us all his local advice and recommendations which were super helpful. The beach is a nice quick bike ride away and it was not busy at all. All his food recommendations were spot on. I would definitely ride down to Chix for fresh seafood on the water. The room was wonderful and the bed was SUPER comfortable. Todd even made breakfast for us one morning. We definitely had everything we needed for a nice get away. Thank you Todd and Isabel for a wonderful weekend! You guys go out of your way to make sure your guest have a good time!
Todd and Isabelle were amazing hosts. So easy going and kind. We truly enjoyed our stay at their home. I am a very picky traveler and everything surpassed my expectations. The room was very clean and welcoming and the garden was magical. The outdoor kitchen and shower will be something I will be talking about for awhile...amazing! The beach is a short bike ride away. We ended up biking almost everywhere since everything was pretty close. I can't say enough great things about Todd and Isabella and the beautiful home that they created. I will definitely be back.
Todd and Isabel were the perfect hosts. Their home is beautiful and perfect for a relaxing break to the beach. Nothing was too much trouble and there recommendations where spot on. They are in a great location and the use of the bikes to get about was perfect. The best air bnb experience so far!
