Tom was extremely accommodating, friendly, and great to visit with. Very close to Fisherman's wharf where we did most of our tours. It was very...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind words. It was great to have you stay and I hope you will come back. PS: You did really well on your fishing trips, way better than I did.

The kitchen is very small so only appropriate to...

Management response:

Actually, have have had a no. of repeat guests that stayed here for a whole month and the kitchen was large enough for all their cooking needs. It has convection/toaster owen, microwave, induction hot plate, rice cooker, slow cooker, fridge, a sink and an outdoor BBQ.
