Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at the William Skelton House over Thanksgiving was a delight. The house was clean & bright and ready for us though we were much earlier than the usually designated time. I’ve already recommended it to friends as a perfect house for a big family & in a perfect location.



I’d like to compliment Haytham who responded so kindly & quickly to all our requests, including coming over to take a family photo. He was so welcoming in all regards and we enjoyed his upbeat & warm personality. In fact, everyone connected with the house - from those I spoke with to reserve the house, to the housekeepers & others at the front desk - were all helpful & friendly.



I thank you on behalf of my family for all your kind attention.



Sincerely,

Maggie

A Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

I had probably the best weekend of my life here at this house. It was so roomy - each of us had a bed and there were SEVERAL living spaces/areas where all 14 of us could be together. The pool area was beautiful - we loved jumping in there after a long day of walking around in the heat. The house was just gorgeous from the outside, we could not stop taking pictures out there. We parked two cars well in the small driveway and we're able to EASILY walk to every location that we went to. Already dreaming of going back. Oh and the property manager called us the morning after we got there to make sure everything was going smoothly and that we had everything we needed. Thank you Haytham!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a great location. An older house that was still very accommodating. Haytham was 5 stars, recommending places to eat and offering to book reservations to anything we needed. Overall great trip.

Great property close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Property was close to everything you need. Big and spacious with a great back yard area with a pool. Plenty of AC units to keep the house nice and cool! Would definitely recommend for a larger group or big family!

Great house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, fit 12 people comfortably, but the best part was the location, less than a block from duval street right in the middle of the action

Great house for large groups

  • 4 of 5

This is a very pretty home in a great location, a 30 second walk to the heart of Duval St. The pool in the back is great, a perfect place to spend the afternoon with friends.

I only have two gripes: 1) the house has a very weird layout with no kitchen on the first floor and the only way to reach the second floor is to go outside. 2) The house is very expensive - it ended up being worth what we paid, but it certainly isn't a great value.

We would stay at the house again, especially when traveling with such a large group.
