Creative couple who loves to host and travel!
The house was definitely big enough for our large group. It was nice to all be together unlike in a hotel.
There wasn't room to unpack anything, so we had to live out of our luggage. I booked on short notice (a week), so the host stated there wasn't time to clean. The house could've used a good cleaning, it's easy to tell a dog lives in the house.
But, for what we needed it for, the house was fine.
The host was very friendly. We had a wonderful time in this lovely house.
PROS: Big, beautiful house and just a short walk to cute restaurants and bars in downtown Sea Cliff. Public beach is beautiful as well! Great for groups who want to spend time together catching up on the spacious porch and unwind from city life. CONS: house is tidy but could use a deep clean (especially the kitchen) considering there is a cleaning fee. Hosts couldn't be flexible with check in or check out times, despite saying so in the listing. Fridge was packed with their groceries and so there was little room for ours. OVERALL: would book again and recommend to friends!
Pros: The house definitely had plenty of room to accommodate a large group. It was in a nice quiet location and blocked off from the road by hedges, so somewhat private. Lots of fun games and space in the yard to play. Very easy to walk to all areas of Sea Cliff for provisions, or to restaurants or the beach.
Cons: The house is definitely being used as a day-to-day residence. There is nowhere to store your things, so you live out of your luggage. There are animals living there as well, so someone will share a room with an (empty) dog crate. The fridge and freezer were full of their own groceries, with little room to add our own items, and we had a large group to feed/cook for. There's a garage in back of the house where people came and went; it shares a property and driveway, though we have no idea who they were. The house was tidy, but not particularly clean-feeling.
Very pretty area, and the house was perfectly situated for a weekend with friends! Stephanie did a perfect job preparing the house, and all of the bedrooms were very well kept.
The Victorian is beautiful and huge! We had a great time and were very comfortable! Would definitely come again.
My siblings and I booked the house on very short notice for just a night to attend a memorial event for a deceased family member. We had our elderly parents with us so we thought a home environment would be more comfortable than staying in hotel rooms. We enjoyed the short stay. The house was very comfortable and worked well for us. Planning, arrival, and departure went very smoothly and I would recommend the house to groups looking for a comfortable laid back accommodation. Sea Cliff is a beautiful town and it would have been nice to spend more time walking around town.
I enjoyed my stay with Stephanie and her family very much! Thanks to them for all they did. I returned to the house very late most evenings and they always had a light burning for me. Nice!
It was my first time using Air BnB I could not have asked for a better host. Steph was extremely accomodating she answered my questions in a timely manner. My group loved Stephs property it was a great way to ring in the New Year! We will be back when the weather gets better. Thanks again for everything talk to you soon.
Pros: Very cozy and spacious. Convenient to NYC and downtown Sea Cliff. Stocked with plenty of towels and sheets. Accommodating hostess.
Cons: House could use a serious deep clean, especially the kitchen!
Steph and John were fabulous guests. They were easy to communicate with and took great care of the house. I would host them again anytime!
Amazing guests! Great communication and left house perfect. We hope they visit us again. Everything went smoothly and we are glad they had an awesome stay.
Thank you Loretta! We had a great stay with you, great house and location.
It was a pleasure hosting Steph's family. Communication was excellent and the place was kept spotless! Thanks :)
Awesome guests..Steph came w/ her sweetheart daughter,boyfriend, and ADORABLE well behaved puppy..They were completely respectful and left the place perfect..She also shared a great shot I'm borrowing to post on my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page..Definitely hope to see them back if they plan on visiting the area again!!
I've stayed with Steph at the Victorian. It is a lovely Sea Cliff property, central to all. It is eclectically decorated with tons of space and charm. This property is perfect for families; it has two kids rooms! Fully equipped kitchen and laundry. She is meticulously detailed and I'm sure anyone renting from her will have a fabulous stay.
