benjamin n'était pas présent mais tout était fait pour que notre arrivé soit la meilleur possible.
Benjamin nous a contacté et était très disponible et intentionné.
Nous avons adoré son logement. La cuisine était très bien équipée et le barbecue nickel !
Un lieu idéal pour le repos et un bon emplacement sur la péninsule.
This was our third time renting a cottage in Ontario through Airbnb, and Idyll Hours was our favourite to date. Benjamin was extremely responsive, and answered all our questions immediately. We felt extremely welcome in the cottage, which has a fantastic, beachy decor scheme and a great selection of games and books. The kitchen was spotless and had everything we needed, and the drawers and cupboards are extremely well-organized, which made it easy to find what we were looking for.
There are multiple options for outdoor lounging: comfortable Adirondack-style chairs by the chimenea on the back deck, as well as a great firepit in the backyard, and a veranda in the front. The neighbours were extremely quiet (or out of town), so we felt like we were out in the woods on our own. We'll definitely be back!
My boyfriend and I enjoyed the most perfect 4 day weekend get away! Such a beautiful, well decorated and cozy cottage - we could not have asked for a better place to stay. The kitchen was very user friendly (allowing us to prepare whatever we wanted before leaving on our day trips).There were also two bikes available, which made our rides along the beach road even more memorable.
Ben was an amazing host, very easy to get a hold of and had some great suggestions on what to do in the surrounding area. We hope to make it back to the area sometime soon!
Ben's cottage is very comfortable and cozy. The kitchen had every amenity one would want to prepare meals which we truly appreciated. It was a close drive to the beach which made it convenient to catch the most awesome sunset on Sable Beach. Although we were not able to meet Ben, he was always accessible by email for any questions or concerns we had. He also provided us with some great places to check out in the area. The worst thing was that we didn't have enough time to check out all of the wonderful places on Bruce Peninsula.
We (2 people) stayed in Ben's house for 3 nights at the end of September.
The house is just like the photos, in an idyllic area about 2 minutes drive to the beach where you can go kayaking around the Fishing Islands! The house we found to be extremely quiet. You aren't completely isolated, but there are lots of trees between the houses in the neighbourhood. The kitchen is one of the best equipped kitchens we have ever had from airbnb! Ben and his family actually use the house and I'm guessing they like cooking because the equipment is good quality and lots of it. The washing machine and dryer are also in the kitchen. There is a large dining table which you can't see in the pictures. The bathroom has a strong shower over a bath. The bedroom has a big comfy bed, however, you are normally expected to bring your own bedding. We had come from Europe and Ben kindly provided us with bedding and towels for our stay as well as some beach towels which was really appreciated. The living room sofa is really comfy and blankets to snuggle under were also provided. There is also another bedroom which has bunk beds. The house was very quick to warm up with the heating and was clean. We didn't stay long enough to use them but there are a camp fire pit and a barbecue available to guests. Even though the house doesn't have an internet connection we did manage to get patchy 3G coverage on Bell at the house and in the area.
Ben is such a great guy, and very friendly, he was also easily contactable. He gave us lots of information beforehand on kayaking around the area and we chose to go around the fishing islands - we are newbies but found the Fishing Islands to be easy and fun to explore! He really went out of his way to ensure we had a great stay. The location of this house is fantastic for exploring the area and you can easily do Flowerpot Island and Tobermory as a day trip. We loved staying here and had such a fab time and wished we had scheduled a longer stay! We will definitely stay here again.
Fantastic place! Loved the space and the location. We had a great stay, Ben was super easy to get ahold of and left all instructions and information out very clearly. Great deal will defiantly come back at some point. Clean. Comfortable. Great Time.
This is by far the best Airbnb place we've ever stayed at. It's a great, clean and beautifully decorated cottage. It has everything you need going from kitchen supplies to a washing machine and dryer and a DVD-player, Xbox, books, etc. There are also bikes available. The area is wonderful as well. The cottage is about 15 minutes walking from the lake in Oliphant. We did not meet the owner (since he lives in Toronto) but did have very good contacts with him. He gave us lots of information about the area, which is also available at the cottage. I hope we get to go a second time.
