“We had a lovely time staying at Charlie's place on Fort Salonga! The space is a cottage, but they have done a great job with updates and making it feel upscale, comfy, and homey all at the same time. We loved the location. It is tucked away off the road and feels like a small slice of heaven. There was a tree swing that overlooked the ocean, a firepit, and just 10 steps down from their yard to the beach. The covered porch extends the indoors outside with seating, a new grill, and additional burners for cooking. There was even backup propane for when we ran out! There are so many small, but thoughtful, touches that really elevates Charlie's place! There were games, a Roku and big screen tv, a bluetooth speaker, large beach umbrella, fishing poles, and beach towels and chairs. Even just many practical things that other AirBNBs often don't provide including basic seasonings and other cooking essentials, soap/shampoo/conditioner, bug spray, etc. I would not encourage you to take advantage of or rely on these things being there, but it was nice for any forgotten items! The only thing that I had wished we had more of was kitchen dishes/utensils/tupperware/cookware, but we were able to make do with what we had. As advertised, the beach was rocky- glad we had water shoes. The ocean seems to wash up a bit of seaweed onto the shore, and in the afternoons when the tide goes out, the water gets a little murky. We were able to go out into the ocean during the daytime (with our shoes of course) and enjoy floating around with our noodles. Charlie was very responsive with any questions we had- both before and during our trip. We also had the pleasure of meeting his sister, who stopped by to introduce herself in case we had any additional needs. Charlie's dogma of trusting those staying in his home to be respectful (without imposing a slew of rules which you would probably follow anyways but feels burdensome) is rare these days. So PLEASE, if you plan to stay at Charlie's place, be respectful of him and his place and don't ruin it for the rest of us. This place is a GEM!”

“There are Airbnb hosts and then there's Lisa. This was my first time ever having interacted with an Airbnb in such an intimate manner. I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to meet Lisa and her lovely family (including her two beautiful horses and her chickens). From the moment my partner and I arrived we were overwhelmed by how friendly and accommodating Lisa was. When we finally met in person she greeted us with a smile and she introduced us to her horses. We had 24/7 access to a pool, hammocks, plenty of lounging space, time to be alone, and wonderful company when we wanted it. We got to roast marshmallows and listen to some pretty amazing stories by the fire pit too. Lisa's ”happy place" was certainly a breath of fresh air, especially after 3 months of lockdown in the city. The room is perfect for two. There are plenty of delicious restaurants nearby and the beaches are less that 30min drives away. Thank you for opening your home to us. We hope to return soon!”

“Very happy with my stay. Beautiful community nearby the water (couple minutes to walk) and lots of surrounding nature. Space is small, but clean and cozy and has everything someone would need for a short stay or getaway. Cellphone connectivity is nearly non-existent so you can relax and pretend like it’s 1995 or connect to WIFI; they have a great connection at the house. My stay was as I had anticipated and was very happy with my selection.”
