This is a perfect place to settle into and discover the island. Paul and Kathleen make you very welcome and are most helpful. We enjoyed our time in the home and especially liked eating out in the garden. Everything seemed convenient, shopping, getting downtown and proximity to the highway. We hope to return in the future.

Kathleen and Paul's place had everything we hoped we would have. It wasn't luxury, but it was clean and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Kathleen and Paul were very nice and approachable, and we felt very welcome in their home. Their place is a little farther from the middle of town than we realized, but since we had a vehicle, it really wasn't a big deal.
