The space was AMAZING! Jeanell also had prepared everything very neat and clean, and showed us all around when we arrived. After that, she left us to ourselves, but let us know how to get her attention should we need anything. We loved every minute of our stay here.
By far the best airbnb experience we have had yet. Our host was extremely considerate and inviting, especially since we booked and arrived within an hour and a half on short notice. The view was spectacular and we couldn't pull ourselves away from it. The outdoor type experience was perfect for us and wouldn't change anything....even the cloudy and chilly evening. We highly recommend staying with Jeanell. She thought of everything that could make our stay better. We'll be back!
We had a great stay at Jaenell's home. The penthouse suite was absolutely beautiful with breath-taking views of the ocean. The private hot tub on the roof was amazing and we took a nice relaxing dip at the end of the night. At first, we thought it would be too cold too sleep outside, but it ended up being perfect, especially with the bed (that had a tent-like cover over it) and plenty of blankets, which were provided by Jaenell.
She made an extra effort to make the place cozy and feel at home and provided snacks and goodies in the fridge. The neighborhood is really great and there is close access to the beach. We ended up taking a nice run in the evening along the beach, from the house. Our stay overall was excellent and I would definitely recommend this suite for a nice romantic getaway.
Jeanell was an excellent host. She greeted me right away at the front and was very friendly. She showed me where additional items were throughout the house should I need anything else i.e. blankets, ice etc. Then left me to my own relaxing time.
The penthouse is exactly as described. It is an amazing view! I stayed on the futon most of the day watching dolphins, sea otters and boaters through the binoculars. The evening was spent in the hot tub relaxing watching the stars above while listening to the crashing waves. I awoke to birds singing and waves splashing-if only I could awake this way everyday!
Had an incredible time at the Penthouse Beach Studio! The description was very accurate and Jeanell was a very gracious host. She took the time to tell us a bit about the neighborhood and how to use everything on the deck. The view is amazing - would definitely go again!
Jeanell's penthouse was exceptionally nice, she took time and made us feel welcome. When we arrived the studio was clean and prepared for us, the weather was pretty cold so we plan to revisit during some warmer weather
This penthouse flat is incredible, and a perfect place to go for anyone looking to get away from it all for a night or two. I went with my girlfriend for one night, and we were both very happy with the house, the atmosphere and Jeanelle! The view is unbeatable; pair that with the outdoor bed, Jacuzzi, and quaint indoor area, and the experience is memorable and downright epic. Jeanelle was very nice and helped us get acquainted with the house and the area before leaving us to our private penthouse (she even got me a surprise bottle of wine at my request!). I would recommend this trip to ANYONE who is looking for a romantic getaway. It was truly one of the best weekends ever, made possible by this amazing house and its amazing host!
