Lovely host, great place

  • 5 of 5

The location of this little basement apartment is amazing--across the street from the huge lakefront park, a half block to the water. Yet it is quiet, with sufficient parking and great amenities. Access is through the host's dining room but she is quite discreet and makes it as private as possible. Karen went out of her way to make it feel like a special visit--she clearly loves her town and we do too. It was a lovely retreat and the only downside was not being able to spend more time there.

Great location and great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Karen's house June 23-28th during CDA Ironman 70.3 it was a great place to stay. There were 4 of us staying there, my husband, 2 children and myself. Everything we needed was there in the basement, it was clean and comfortable. It's located right across the street from City Park and there are tons of things to do within walking distance. We would highly recommend this property for anyone looking to stay in CDA.

Perfect fit!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 6 nights at this lovely property with my husband and 9-year-old son. The basement suite was cool in spite of warm temps, bright, clean, spacious, comfortable, and cheerfully decorated. The location was fabulous - just steps from the park and beach/lake, and minutes to the resort, restaurants, and downtown shops. The owners were wonderfully friendly, helpful, and especially sweet to our curious and chatty son. We loved our stay and would absolutely consider booking this property for future visits!
