I am a pilot & I stay in hotels over 200 nights a year. My wife & I also travel and stay in a lot of B&B's across the country and internationally. I have to rank this B&B top of my list for excellence. It is a rustic home with wood floors, fresh paint and its very clean & comfortable. Its one of those places where you can tell the owners have spaired no expense in fixing it up and keeping it up. From here you are a short walk (5 mins or less) to town with lots of shops, restaurants, & the harbor. This location is right near the water with a very nice view.
Jeff & Jynell are very accommodating and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home. Breakfast was made to order! You will not be disappointed with breakfast! He made some sort of egg wrap that was cooked along with fresh strawberries & cherries and several juices. He also offered to make us whatever we wanted, if we wanted something different.
My upstairs room is nice with a perfectly comfy king size bed with plush sheets and comforter. It was by far the cosiest and most comfortable night sleep I have had in awhile. The room is quiet, spacious with a small couch and sitting area with a gas fireplace. The bathroom is a bit small but very adequate and nicely tiled. There is plenty of natural light in the room from windows surrounding all sides. There are large blinds that you can close to keep light out or for privacy. Its summer now and the airconditioner did a great job keeping the room dry and cool. (I know moisture control is a challenge on the islands.) Some rooms are downstairs and several upstairs. The living area downstairs has a nice sitting area to relax and a large table where breakfast is served. There is also a small mini bar area where they have plenty to drink: soft drinks, beer, or liquor. That evening we came down, sat and had drinks and spent time talking with the owners. You can also sit out on the front porch area and enjoy your drink while looking out at the water. After dark we could see the lights from the boats in the harbor. There is adequate parking in the front and Jeff took us to and from the airport for a small fee.
You must remember you are staying at a Bed & Breakfast and not a hotel. This is more like being At Home atmosphere and not a hotel. If you are looking for a hotel then you should stay there. If you like a more personal touch then stay here. Every place has difficult days where things may not be perfect to suite you. If they burn your cookies or if your soda is flat, just tell them. I'm sure they will be glad to fix it! Personally I like it cause they are eager to please ME! I have yet to stay in a hotel that's eager to do that.
