We had the best time at Tom and Gordy's little retreat! It was absolutely a highlight of our trip and the room is such a quirky space. Tom and Gordy were so lovely and had the fridge stocked up with beers and snacks when we arrived. They even brought us an amazing dinner they had cooked one night! We fell in love with Harry David Dog and Harvey (it's hard not too!), 100% recommend this air bnb :)

Do you know the feeling when the holidays are over? You were sad because you have to leave and glad that you ve had such a wonderful time. Well our roundtrip through Florida is not over yet but we have to leave this lovely place. I could repeat everything that has been written here already because it is true. More than that: It waa just perfect! Such a nice and clean location with perfect hosts and such a cute dog (we already miss you Harvey!). We had already severall experiences with AirBNB but this was the best ever! Tom & Gordy, thank you! We will come back! Sandra and Oliver

If our trip were a book it'd be titled "When friends become family". Our 3rd year in a row and every year it just gets better. I felt so grateful to be out at the parks looking around knowing I was the only one lucky enough to be going home every night to call Camp Copeland HOME. My girlfriend and I were treated to a delicious London Broil at Tom and Gordy's and talked life and love over some cranberry and vodka ( The Gordy Special). We were truly sad to go, but Gordy giving us a ride to the airport allowed us some peaceful closure to the trip in knowing we would see him and Tom soon. My only warning is that if you are planning on waking up early .... Be careful .... The new bed is HEAVEN and impossible to leave. Thank you both. We love you and everything about your home.

Tom & Gordy's studio is beautiful and relaxing! They are great hosts, and their attention to detail with the little things was so lovely. We ended up Uber-ing to Universal and it's a nice 25 min walk to restaurants and a quick ride back.

We would highly recommend staying at Tom and Gordy’s place, we couldn’t have asked for better hosts. The accommodation is wonderful, especially the bed- it is like sleeping on a cloud! The whole experience was completely faultless. Thank you Tom and Gordy! x

Both my partner, Gordy, and myself like a nice quiet relaxed life at home with our two dogs and enjoy a glass of wine by the pool. We both like to workout, spend time outside and travel for both work and play. We both know the comforts we like to find while traveling and have made sure your space is one that we would enjoy as well.
