Beautiful home, very close to the beach. Looks exactly like the pictures. The host was nice and dropped off treats for us during the stay. Nice touches in the house. They even stocked the fridge with the groceries we requested. I do think that the host went overboard with instru…

Response from Mike & Neil:
A good stay is all about good communication and being upfront about what you as a guest can expect. Our guests give us excellent ratings because of these efforts, the quality of our Airbnbs, amenities and hospitality. Airbnb also acknowledges this by having us designated as superhosts. Our checks ins are congenial, detailed, but brief and to the point, because we respect your time and ours. We do not repeat ourselves as that would be a waste of time and energy. The concerns expressed by this guests are fully disclosed in our listing itself. So, prior to booking the guest knew what to expect. Guests have lauded us and suggested that we have information available in multiple formats (print and electronic). We have photographs of the cottage listed and do not list a dishwasher as an available amenity. Leaving items as you find them is a normal expectation of most hosts. Despite the concerns expressed by the guest with regards to having the rules available electronically and in print, the guest did not actually follow the rules and left the property unlocked and unsecured upon check out. Several items had to be retired permanently from service due to condition in which they were left by the guest.

Mike and Neil's place was fabulous. Well stocked. They go the extra mile. Even got us flowers and organic produce. The house was beyond immaculate. We could walk to town in 10 minutes and were just down the street from the beach. Lovely time.

Mike and Neil have a lovely home in Half Moon Bay. The house comes with most essentials you would need. In addition, they provide you with some delightful surprises like fresh flowers, wine, and artisanal cheeses. Before booking you should know they have very explicit rules you…

Mike & Neil really represent the "BnB" in 'Airbnb'; this was like staying in a high end resort vs renting somebody's home. I can't say enough about how clean and well appointed the house is. The location is also outstanding - terrific access to some truly beautiful spots in No…
