  • Nice place!


    Everything is as it is listed. Not having an AC was not a problem, but it would have been nice to have a real stove/oven. The pool was a great bonus. The hosts were very nice and made sure we had what we needed.

  • Perfect place!


    Lovely hosts and beautiful accommodations! The outdoor area with the pool was as beautiful as anywhere in the island. And the indoor area was super clean and perfect. Our hosts gave welcoming treats to start our stay. They also offered all kinds of gear for any kind of outdoor activity - snorkeling, boogie boards, fun noodles, beach chairs and more! We had such a nice getaway and this place was ideal. We toured so many different parts of the island and were always happy to come back each evening to our “home away from home.” Could not have been better!

    We had a wonderful stay at this guesthouse. More than comfortable for a couple. The guesthouse itself was comfortable and well equipped and we had access to a beautiful backyard and pool plus a side yard for breakfast and bbqing. Rick and Suzie were excellent hosts- very friendly and communicative- would definitely recommend

  • Always Returning


    Our stay with Rick and Susan are always a pleasure. They give the best recommendations for beaches, things to do and places to go and eat! It always feels like home while we are there and we wouldn’t ever change a thing about it. They are gracious and hospitable hosts! This is our second year in a row we’ve stayed with them. It’s a place we look forward to coming back to every year. You won’t be disappointed if you book your stay with them.
