Contemporary art dealer who spends much of the year traveling the world.
The best word to sum up my experience at James' amazing home is .. WOW. The stunning views took my breath away, the gorgeous open concept living space was a breath of fresh air, the location - directly adjacent to the East Coast Trail - was incredible, the artwork hung around the home was inspiring, and the bedroom rental with a balcony overlooking the ocean was perfect. James was a fantastic host, and a wonderful, interesting, fun conversationalist. I enjoyed every minute of my time at his home - my only regret is that I could not stay there longer! I will definitely be returning the next time I find myself in this beautiful province :)
Great host, large, comfortable space, unbeatable view. I had to brace myself for the prospect of someone else potentially being in the space while I was staying there but James made me feel at home from the minute I walked in, seemed like one of my buddies I'd hang out with at home. He has some great historical and (website hidden) tales about the area, very accommodating and helpful guide too. His space embodies authentic bohemian living - do not come here looking for some W Hotel spa treatment. Come here to stretch out among fascinating art and other curios, if you can keep your eyes off of the North Atlantic right out in front of you.
As soon as we arrived James put us at ease and was so generous, telling us stories and giving us some local history. The view is so beautiful, the whole side of the house facing the sea is full of windows, the huge bedroom we slept in had its own private deck and a little sitting area. We would definitely recommend this place to stay and have a gorgeous view of the bay and the Atlantic!
This place is just amazing, a stunning view of the ocean and an amazing interior design. James was very helpful, friendly and made us feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend staying there.
I very much enjoyed my stay, the space is stunning and the view is on the same level. If you are inclined to do a little walking there is a path to the south along the cliffs that's a great way to begin your day. James is also very helpful as a host in pointing out many places to see in the area.

The house couldn't have been more perfect for us!
It is in immaculate condition. Gorgeous bathroom and kitchen, and most comfortable couch ever! The added bonus is the access to the laundry. Really happy with our stay and are actually going back very soon. Thanks again Tina & James :-)
Our stay went really smoothly. Tina was responsive and flexible. We arrived in the night and the key was there, everything worked and it was easy to get settled. The apartment was clean and well-organized, bigger than what we expected. There are actually 2 bedrooms and one empty smaller one, where our baby slept in his cot. The location requires the use of a car to go downtown (5-10min drive), but we had one so it was no problem.
Tina left us some wine and sent us flowers! There was washing machine detergent for our use, milk in the fridge.
Thank you for the lovely stay.
There were so many pluses to this home: the stunning view that I felt grateful to experience every morning, the spacious, open concept upstairs which made me start to rethink my own living space, falling asleep at night to the sound of the ocean, the amazing artwork, the rain shower in the upstairs bathroom, to name a few.
One needs to know before booking this space, though, that it is a work in progress. Certain parts of the house are still under construction, for example the downstairs bathroom. That said, I would happily stay there again!
We had the whole place to ourselves while James was travelling. If you are staying there while James is in residence, you do need to realize, as per his description, that this entire house is open concept.
Beautiful, art-filled space with stunning views... We had an unforgettable time. Thanks James!
Ho avuto il piacere di ospitare James e la sua compagna alcuni giorni.posso definirlo un vero viaggiatore con quel fascino che traspare da un'artista. E' stato puntuale , ed ha lasciato la casa in ordine. Consiglio caldamente James a tutti.
attentive and courteous guest. Hope he cames back one day.
Jame and wife were perfect hostes, the house was left clean and tidy.. the match has created a great conversation in art and city ...I hope to have them back as soon as my guest good continuos journey
James e sua moglie sono stati ospiti molto graditi, comunicativi simpatici e gentilissimi hanno preso molta cura dell'appartamento, grandi raccomandazioni per loro.
I met James through my partner Steve several years ago. Since then, James and I have travelled together quite a bit (Tobago, France and Buenos Aires). Having seen his travelling style firsthand, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him as a guest (or a travelling companion!)
James is friendly, courteous, and always quick with an entertaining anecdote. As a bonus, he is well-read and a great conversationalist, but most importantly, he is an easy going and unobtrusive guest.
