"This is a beautiful, welcoming home with nearly all amenities and toys, including bikes, provided. From a quiet little balcony to enjoy conversation and coffee to a patio for the whole rambunctious family, there is definitely space for solitude and space for rowdy family night games and dinner. I loved the early morning walks/rides along the bay followed by a quiet cup of coffee on the balcony while waiting for the day to spin into action. I have rented many properties through VRBO and have never written a review. Not because other properties weren't beautiful or expectations weren't met, but as renters we pay for that expected service. In this case, Jann and Tim exceeded any expectations from the get go and added value just by being them. Prior to our visit, we were provided a welcome packet with information that must have taken time and forethought to prepare. I spoke with Jann prior to the visit and was impressed with the warmness in which she was sharing her home. She conveyed true enthusiasm in wanting the entire family to enjoy the visit. Upon our arrival I contacted her, not realizing there was a 3-hour time difference. It was midnight there! I contacted her a second time during the visit because we locked ourselves out of a room. NEVER did she express annoyance. Each time I have had the opportunity to communicate with Jann, she has been warm, welcoming and genuine. That's what makes this property exemplary! It is clean, it is beautiful, it has all the toys. But above all of that, it has good old-fashioned customer service...kindness. Rest assured, you and your family, demon-children (just kidding folks), party, friends, pets, etc will be truly welcomed and in good hands. My family votes to make this an annual trip! Thanks Jann and Tim for making your home available to us. KUDOS to you!!!"
