Sitting at the pool, privacy of the room
It was a beautiful old antebellum home with a nice pool.
Loved the charm of the BNB and the location. It was close to lots of shops and restaurants. The host gave us a lot of information which I’m sure would have been useful had we not only been passing through and staying for one night. The pool was gorgeous and relaxing.
The host was a bit off putting. On arrival he was nice enough and offered a hour long conversations with lots of tongue in cheek humor and filled us in on all of the aspects of the BNB and the local area which was very hospitable and would have been invited after checking in since we had just arrived from a long 12 hour drive and were ready to get in our room and relax. He was kind enough to prepare the room for us 2-3 hours early which was wonderful so we weren’t about to complain about the long intro because he didn’t have to go out of his way to do that. But then comes the part of this review that I really don’t love sharing because it’s such a shame how the host handled us when we used the washer and dryer at the BNB. Late in the evening while relaxing at the pool, the host walked toward us after arriving back to the BNB from a jaunt and approached us rather rudely saying, “Who gave you permission to use the washer and dryer?”, in a very accusatory, very demeaning manor. I had to ask him what he said because I couldn’t believe he had approached us in such a rude way. He then said “Who gave you permission to use the Laundry?”. I felt embarrassed and uncomfortable and just said, “I apologize, we thought it might be included.” He followed with, “No it wasn’t included in the listing.” Then he snipped at us and started to walk away and said, “That’s okay! I’ll just charge you for it.” And stormed off. The way he handled that was so child like and so unprofessional. For the rest of our stay we felt very unwelcome and uncomfortable. He could have came to us in a completely different way. I believe this man needs to consider the way he speaks with his customers. We decided to sleep in and miss breakfast the next morning because we did not want to tolerate any further unprofessional conversation, of which we’ve read about in previous reviews. Everything else about the BNB and our experience was fine, but he could have totally approached that situation differently.
The house itself is wonderful, the rooms, the furniture, the details, the mood, the view, and the location are impeccable and simply in tone/style with the rest of the neighborhood. The courtyard is a lush tidal jungle full of greenery and flowers, with a beautiful pool where you can have a cool bath in the middle of the historic district. To my surprise, I discovered the owner who was preparing breakfast for us on the scratch, cooking with delicious omelet and grits on the first morning and phenomenal roast potatoes and roasted eggs on the second. I felt guilty later because he asked me when I normally wake up because and I replied at 7. Later i discovered he cooked grits in an original way. (take 1 hour to be ready). He gave me a lot of suggestions for the visit and he is a great partner in every discussion topic, he 's cultured, kind and definitely a great host!
nothing, there is nothing to say.
The house was built in 1850 , still is in good shape. Some parts, like floors in the rooms are still original. If you want to experience the Southern living style, this is your choice.
