The property is fantastic.
This was our second year staying at "Villakula", and we enjoyed it even more. By far, our favorite part of the property is the wonderfully open living room space, combined with the fantastic outside deck.
This house will absolutely blow you away. Many bedrooms, baths, wonderfully heated pool, so much decking, seating areas everywhere. When the pool stopped heating on day 2, they were incredibly responsive about getting it quickly fixed. We would highly recommend to all!
This house is perfect for a family reunion or multi-couple get away. House was clean and beautiful. The grounds, pool, and view were amazing. Great kitchen for cooking big meals and has all the things you would need putting together a nice meal. We would definitely rent this house again!
Perfect Vacation Home!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villakula! We have rented many homes and this one is the most well equipped and comfortable. We would definitely rent this home again!
Amazing, beautiful house. Extremely spacious with great water views. Pictures do not do it justice!
We stayed at villakula with 14 friends/family members the week of tropical storm Jose. If you are going to be stuck indoors this is the house to be in ! Everyone on trip had an amazing time despite the weather and we owe it to the house. The whole downstairs is a game room plus bar with wine chiller. Plenty of board games in addition to pool table, ping pong , pinball machine ( this was a huge hit) and many others. We were worried about refrigerator space but were please there was another refrigerator downstairs. This house really was stocked with everything one would need. We have rented many other houses in BI and this was the best in terms of appliances, cookware etc. I was very impressed! Being with a large group it never felt crowded the ceilings are very high and there is so much space you can’t see from pictures. My son loves riding his scooter around the wraparound deck. We even had some brave folks that used the pool which is also a rarity on BI and would be amazing with we had sun. Plenty of yard space for activity outside. Bottom line was this house was gorgeous and probably tops my list of favorites on BI. Thank you to the owner for sharing your home with us and allowing us to create wonderful memories this year. Suzann was great to work with. She will answer any questions you may have and is prompt at responding. I would highly recommend you try villakula for your next group vacation, you won’t be disappointed!!!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are always interested in our guest's review and comments. The owner of this property is a joy to work with and is always concerned about how the guests comforts. The house is impeccably maintained to the highest standards which is why it is always in high demand. So happy you all had a great time despite the inclement weather.
A blissful getaway destination. This home actually has everything!
Leslie Taylor's home was perfect for our group to come together in. Although the photos are beautiful, they do not do this amazing home justice.
Our group of forty somethings stayed with our children in this amazing Block Island rental. We were greeted by the most gorgeous, gigantic bouquet of hydrangea I've ever seen and a tub delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies. This set the tone for our happy vacation.
We all frolicked in the pool and gazed at the stunning views by day and then, as we watched the sun set, we ate amazing meals prepared in Leslie's gourmet kitchen. What a pleasure her kitchen is to cook in! There is nothing you could want for: every size platter, ramekin, or covered dish! All Clad pots and pans, JA Henckles cutlery (sharp!), and giant butcher blocks (please don't cut her counters!) at every turn make prepping and preparing large meals a breeze. The poolside grill keeps the grill master part of the party while being the mealtime hero. How fun to make s'mores with the kids in the poolside fire pit while a few adults handle cleanup. High end appliances and a deep, wide sink made dish duty fast and easy.
Other amenities include an awesome deck that surrounds the house. The deck is periodically punctuated by giant planters bursting with gorgeous blooms, rocking chairs, or Adirondack chairs as well as dining tables and coffee tables. The stunning view of the Atlantic is the perfect backdrop for your family photo. While the deck railings are not technically "child safe", this did not stop us from running races around the house with our youngsters as others packed up the cars. Parents of babies/toddlers should be cautious, but our parties' three and four year olds were able to stay away from the edges.
And then, when it's time to come inside, there is the game room. Pool, shuffle board, and pinball! Ping pong, cards, roulette, poker and board games!
Everywhere you turn in this home you will either find a peaceful escape or a way to be entertained. We will be back each year for as long as the Taylor family continues to offer their their amazing home as a rental property and are happy to have us. We are so grateful to have been guests in this perfect block island home.
Our island is a very special place. There are not many parts of the world, especially in the United States, where commercialism has not completely infiltrated. This island is one of those exceptional places. It remains barely touched by the masses. In fact, the town of New Shoreham looks much the same as it did in the 1800's. Come see for yourself, but don't expect to see a Mall or Franchise Food Chain.
