“This stay was absolutely phenomenal. The space feels much roomier than it looks in photos, everything was spotless, and it’s a really cozy space. Dianne has it decorated with such genuine character of the area. Also, one of the beds is a double, which we couldn’t tell from the photos! The bed was SO comfortable. The value of this apartment is incredible—you’re right on the water and less than a 15 minute drive from the beach and town, where there’s free parking. For those who haven’t been to the Bay, just FYI that the water is “soft”—the iron smell is not a matter of cleanliness! Plus Dianne provided plenty of drinking water for us! She was so accommodating and communicative. 100% will be back.”

“Don't miss out on this amazing place. The best air bnb we've ever stayed at! The house is STUNNING. The master bedroom (comfiest bed ever) upstairs is a dream with windows that open outward to listen to the waves. Location is great as basically anywhere you stand you have a water view. A little beach, kayaks, 2 piers, a hot tub, and a screened in porch make this place beyond desirable. We will be back yearly!! Thank you Shannon!”

“Our stay at Loris place was amazing. Everything was exactly as described. It was peaceful and even tho there were neighbors, you couldn’t see or hear them from the home and so you feel secluded and alone. The fire-pit was amazing, hot tub and pool were open as well, but we spent most of our time on the dock or in kayaks. We almost never left the water. Cannot wait for another trip to this vacation home! They almost had to drag my dad and I out of there come check out time. We would have never left. We caught speckled trout, shrimp, crabs, whiting, rockfish, white perch, and 2 flounders. It was the most amazing experience we have had as a family to date. And the best way anyone could spend their 30th birthday!”
