“Thank you so much for fitting us in for the night - we just wish we had discovered this place earlier and spent more time here. After more than ten years working in the travel industry and traveling all over the world, staying in many types of accommodations - this property has to be one of the coolest, funkiest, most fun places we have stayed. We absolutely LOVED IT!!
Congratulations Bob on creating a fabulous eclectic environment. My four year old son just asked if we could stay here forever.
