Memorable stay
I am truly speechless. Elizabeth was so kind, welcoming and accommodating, from initiating the reservation, welcoming us, and throughout the trip. She has surely put attention to detail in every nook and cranny of the home. The homes was high-end, but tastefully decorated so that you feel right at home - your own home, not a hotel or resort (which gives you peace of mind upon entering the home). Everything was spotless, and she welcomed the use of the espresso maker (well-stocked with pods and fresh milk for steaming), as well as cold water in the fridge and fresh fruit. This, in addition to the well-stocked towels, comfy bedding, tissue and other amenities (too many to list). Needless to say, we didn't need to buy anything for our stay. Although we had catered food, the kitchen had high-end appliances, silverware, plates, utensils and cookware. Having an older group of guests (and musicians), we truly enjoyed the home's built-in surround-sound system (which can be switched from the 30-pin iPod dock/cd changer and am/fm radio). Bennett & Sinatra were the perfect accompaniment to having the glass doors which slide completely open to allow for indoor/outdoor entertaining. Although the outdoor fireplace would have set a great ambiance, it was too hot (even at night) to light up. There's a beautiful view of the harbor from the upstairs balcony. The a/c and fans gave much needed cool air relief (especially to the mother-in-law, who has MS). The single downstairs bedroom with private bath suited her perfectly! Elizabeth even extended use of bikes and ping pong table to us, but we were unable to make use of them in our short stay. The only downside we had, was that we were forewarned about a neighbor overlooking the property (rightfully so, after some previous guests partied a little too hard), but his parking in front of the home for the duration of the stay made us a little uneasy. This is a multi-million dollar neighborhood and there should have been plenty of space to accommodate his vehicles at his home or on the street. Should any guests have been too loud or disruptive, the HB PD would have surely provided a solution. Any guests staying here should know that a certain level of respect and behavior is expected and Elizabeth's home should be treated with the highest level of regard. All of our guests enjoyed their evening and we would love to consider returning again. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Xoxo
