Our 4 day stay was generally comfortable and Mr. Harris was extremely pleasant and very helpful. We arrived on a Saturday morning and I forgot to walk with my deposit slip as proof of my down payment. Mr. Harris allowed us to stay while he went through a lot of inconvenience to help us to locate it at his bank on Monday. We were also able to park our two vehicles on the compound and they were quite safe. Mr. Harris also assisted us with transport back to the port at no cost. Though the rooms were generally clean and tidy, the kitchen needed a thorough cleaning, especially the drawers containing the cutlery. We unfortunately had to lock up all of the doors and windows very early every evening to avoid the swarms of mosquitoes that would attack us. This made the living and dining area very hot, so perhaps installing some mesh screens in the windows and doors may allow guests to still enjoy the breeze and view, while avoiding the mosquitoes. All in all, it was quite a pleasant stay and we would definitely return sometime, as this is very affordable accommodation in a convenient location.

I was extremely satisfied with Mr Harris service before I arrived,when I arrived and during my stay. Mr Harris went-out-of-his-way purchase show tickets for me that I was having problems getting on my own. He met me and took me back to the port. He made me feel very welcome during the length of my stay. His place is clean,spacious and tidy and not too far from downtown Scarborough. I have one sugestion for him and all other hotel or guest-house owners thats picking-up patrons that is stranger to them,is,they hold-up a sign with the name of the accommadation when guest arrive and coming out of the port or airport. I will recommend anyone to his place.
