Quiet , lovely little jem close to a beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

kiwi Studio is a wonderful little studio apartment on a quiet street. It has everything you need and the owners are very nice. It is steps away from the beach and this beach is stunningly beautiful and quiet. The owner has great tips on where to eat and shop. There is a free trolley that takes you up and down the main drag, but we preferred to walk. Everything is within walking distance. There are a couple of things that could be improved upon. The shower head in the apartment was horrible. The water barely trickled out, making showering difficult. The bed sheets were stored in the drawers of the base of the bed. They appeared to have been placed in there without a good attempt at folding which made me wonder if they were clean. There were no kitchen towels and only one available bathroom washcloth, but the owners graciously apologized and provided more. The apartment was very clean and very cute. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone else. We had a wonderful time and are planing to come back this year!

Owner's Response: Jacky, Thank you very much for such a fine review. I can assure you that the sheets where cleaned and that I am not a good folder of sheets. We normally stock the studio with at least 2 kitchen towels and 2-4 wash clothes. I will be replacing the shower head so that new guests will have a decent shower and they can thank you. Also, you left the studio cleaner than any other tenant - Thank You and please come back and I will have a bottle of champagne waiting ! Andrew

My wife and I have vacationed in the area numerous times, and visited with family as well. This little cottage met our needs in every way. Nice and quiet, clean, easy access to the area. With the owner right next door, it was well taken care of ... and we feel like Andrew is a new friend! Hope to return there again.

We stayed three weeks and had a wonderful visit. Fantastic location in every way! Small, clean and the foldout bed very comfortable. Andy was a gracious host.

My fiancé and I stayed 4th of July weekend. As for as location wise, it's perfect! The studio itself was adorable, clean, and had everything you could need for the beach. However, the only issue was how hot it was inside the studio. The ceiling fan went the speed of a turtle on high and the AC seemed to only come on once every 30 mins for about 2 mins. Not to mention you had to stand in one spot to even feel it. The thermometer control was in the actual house so we had no control over it. Unfortunately, we ended up having to leave a night early because we couldn't handle another night in the heat. Good thing we only live 45 mins away! I would highly recommend installing a wall unit in there to fix the problem.

Other then that it was perfect! We walked around to dinner and shops and never had to move our car.

Owner's Response: This review almost leaves me speechless. Over the years we have had numerous guests ask to turn up or down the ac and I do so immediately. We live in this house and where home during this period of time and would have reacted to their request, if only we knew. I can also say that the fan is a new addition to the unit and has 3 speeds, which all work properly. I can assure all quests that your comfort is my priority and I guarantee your satisfaction. I have issued a total refund.
