Perfect getaway bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

Loved every aspect of this comfy, well stocked garage apartment. Whimsical decorating touches throughout. Our host, after some initial confusion, welcomed us and gave us excellent advice as to where to eat & how to best explore the island. We had a delightful stay and could not have been more pleased with our accommodations Looking forward to a return visit soon. A special thanks to Bill for the recommendation of the ferry ride. We saw dolphins ❤️ Thank you Mike for unraveling the tech issues with cable. We were able to watch our OU Sooners. Thank you Bill and Mike for your gracious hospitality.

Awesome Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the bungalow as a year late honeymoon. I have to start with Bill. As soon as we got to the house, Bill welcomed us with the greatest hospitality. He gave us a quick tour and gave us loads of information on things to do, places to eat, and educated us on the area. He was so friendly and welcoming and always there for a quick hello! The location of the bungalow, being a quick 2 minute walk to the beach was amazing. Also, a quick 5 minute walk to a couple bars and restaurants. It was also easily accessibility the main roads, grocery store, and shops. We enjoyed our week and a half stay and definitely will be returning in the future!

Thanks to Bill and Michael!

Charming and clean, great location, very convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this house! It's perfect for 2 people; smaller but plenty of room especially compared to a hotel. Had everything we needed. The location is very convenient for the seawall, downtown, etc. The house is older so has lots of charm, but has been very well taken care of and was clean and nice. The owner was very accommodating and gave recommendations plus maps, menus, events around the island, etc. Highly recommend and hope to return!
