Jane was a gracious host and her home is quite lovely. I enjoyed 2 peaceful nights of sleep in a cozy bed.
I was in a last minute pinch due to a last minute decision to fly in for a funeral and was unfamiliar with how Air b n b works, but Jane was kind enough to communicate with me and we were able to get it all sorted in time for me to be able to stay with her.
Thank you, Jane!
This was a perfect spot to stay --- super convenient to town for dining and a restful spot--quiet area. Jane was a splendid hostess--fresh flowers from her garden, very gracious about schedules, and a most polite cat, Winnie, was friendly but never intrusive :) I would highly recommend visiting Beaufort and staying with Jane for a winsome trip!
We had a fine stay at Jane's place. I sat in the hot tub the first night, and looked up at the stars. Her cat is a precious little thing that followed us around the whole time we were there. Perfect for the few nights we were there, and super close to the water/shops/restaurants.
Response from Jane:
Thanks Paul! Sorry I didn't get to see you more.
As advertised, the room is nice, quiet, comfortable, and a convenient drive to downtown Beaufort. Jane was friendly, worked around our strange schedule and changes, and had good recommendations on food and activities. We even had fun with the other houseguest! And Winnie is a perfect hostess as well, greeting us at the door, allowing us to pet her, cuddling up and purring, and really making this stay feel like home.
An excellent stay in a very comfortable property. Jane is a gracious host with a good idea of guest requirements. The neighborhood was peaceful, and close to downtown. Communications prior to my stay were timely and informative. The other guests were interesting and friendly too - altogether a good experience.
A Gracious Host: Jane is very knowledgeable and can provide great tips and guidance on the area when asked, but will also respect your downtime. She suggested the Beaufort Cafe for breakfast -- tasty and convenient. Her home is located a short drive (less than 10 minutes) from downtown Beaufort. A cozy room with a friendly host.
Jane was a great host, very friendly and accommodating. Winnie was also a great cat host, a sweet and affectionate lady. The house is in an extremely quiet neighborhood, about a 10 minute drive from the waterfront in Beaufort.
We found a ton of great things to do in the area, Jane had some maps and helpful suggestions. Our highlights:
-taking the Local Yokel ferry to the fantastic beach on Cape Lookout, seeing wild ponies and dolphins on the ferry ride
-having an afternoon drink on the Rhum Bar deck in Beaufort
-the (free) Maritime Museum in Beaufort
-Aqua restaurant in Beaufort, great small plates, fresh and innovative food
-the (free) tour of Fort Macon
-the beach in Fort Macon state park
Jane's place was exactly as described and everything was excellent!
Jane, our host, made us feel at home, gave us valuable tips on things to do, and accommodated me perfectly with an urgent work matter. She lives in a quiet, modern neighbor, has a baby grand piano and a wide-screen TV. She left us longing to return to Beaufort and stay again with her and Miss Winnie, her adorable kitty.
Jane was a wonderful host; welcoming, knowledgeable about the area, and friendly. She made several suggestions about places to visit. I would not have visited the Maritime Museum without her recommendation and this was one of the highlights of my visit.
Home was an easy bike ride (thanks for the loan of the bike Jane) and a great way to explore the historic district.
Room was very comfortable and the roses from Jane's garden was a thoughtful touch.
Thanks to Jane for making my first stay with airbnb such a success!
Jane is a wonderful guest! She is welcome back anytime!

Jane is a lovely woman. I always appreciate good pre-visit communication and Jane's communication about her travel needs were 100% on mark. I greatly appreciated that.
In addition, Jane offered me some wonderful advice about the house, based on her professional background and experience. The room was left clean and tidy and easy. Jane is a lovely woman and a lovely houseguest!
It was lovely to meet Jane - who is very laid back and flexible on arrangements, especially when I had to go away and leave a friend house-sitting. Hope you had a great time in the UK.
