Staying at Janelles penthouse studio flat with views was wonderful! Janel is the most warm and gracious hostess yet, she has anticipated all of our needs and very generous. And thoughtful. The space is fantastic the views and the sound of the ocean are as promised. Fabulous hot tub melted away all of our travel weariness. Would happily stay there again anytime.
We got some needed R&R, and really enjoyed the gorgeous views of the ocean and the stars. The flat was fabulous, and Jeanell was a great host. My only complaint is that I wish we had booked a longer stay!
Phenomenally relaxing location. Everything accurate on the listing. We were able to sleep outside to the sound of the ocean waves. Absolutely loved it here. Wish we could have stayed longer.
We had a lovely stay. Jeanell showed us around and told us every little thing we'd need to know about the bathroom, hot tub, outdoor shower, the keys, and where to find extra blankets and pillows. The room is rather quirky with its decorations, but that really added to the character. The ocean view is amazing and it was nice to lounge on the outdoor bed and watch the activity below. After dark, the star filled sky was one of the best we've ever seen. A late night hot tub soak while seeing the Milky Way spread out across the sky was magical.
Jeanell made us feel more than welcome when we arrived at the listing, which, by the way, was breathtaking. She gave us a brief tour of the resources and amenities provided and then gave us our privacy. The penthouse was everything pictured and described, and more. We chose to sleep on the outdoor bed and to my surprise it was not cold or wet at all, all we needed were a few extra blankets. One night was not enough in this little slice of heaven, but we will be back! Thanks Jeanell!
Jeanelle was very nice. The view was beautiful. And if you wanted to go to the beach it was an easy walk - about 6blocks. We did feel the price was a bit expensive for the rest of the accommodations. Although relaxing outside, the inside sleeping was snug and the bathrooms outside were similar to ones you'd find in a motor home - so it smelled like a potapotty. Felt like a fancy way to go camping. Again, great view but the price per night was too expensive for what you got.
Beautiful location, very relaxing to sit or lie out on the patio! The hot tub was great. The view is as beautiful as the photo. Jeanell was gracious and flexible. The main drawback is that there is only a "boat style" toilet and the outdoor shower gets the patio floor all wet.
