First of all, this home has THE best exterior environment from the pool and deck that overlooking the ocean. We LIVED outside for meals and hanging out. The home is worth staying here just for the exterior hangout area! I would like to say the home has so much potential to be really great, but the lack of cleanliness in the kitchen was hard to receive. The home really needed to be wiped down, mopped and cleaned inside immensely. The bathrooms were spotless, and the mattresses slept great. Just recommending also that small appliances are cleaned in between guests, refrigerator and cabinets be cleaned from opened items that are expired and kind of gross...old coffee grinds in coffee maker, food and grime on walls and cabinets. Also, cleaning fee, yet were told the last day to wash and fold all towels and take the week of trash to a place we had no idea where to dispose of, in a car that had 6 people and luggage. Not sure what the cleaning really covers. The road to get to this property is REALLY tough. All and all, the home is worth the outside experience and location is great to everything...and I am cleaning can be adjusted I am sure and 5 stars will surely get marked! Also - the downstairs private bedroom AC does not work, even though it runs, so we were unable to even use this cool room as a 5th room for our group.
Again - gorgeous property - and we did enjoy the stay and would stay here again with some attention to the kitchen cleaning :-)
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home!
I am glad you enjoyed your time on the island and at our home
I take all reviews and address any concerns to better our home for our guests
Not sure what the issue was with the Air conditioner on lower bedroom
We came in the day you left and had friends use the lower bedroom and that were stating the AC was cold in that bedroom .
We are having all AC units looked at just to be sure .
Also having refresh on paint inside and out during month of September .
A wonderful home for a getaway
Beautiful home with spectacular views, all the amenities, and the best host. Five stars
I am so glad your family enjoyed your time at our home
Truly our pleasure having you visit
Our group absolutely loved the views from the pool and deck! There was always a steady breeze which made laying by the pool so enjoyable. The pool is heated by solar panels so the pool was already comfortable at 8:00 in the morning.
I highly recommend using the recommended car service. They know exactly where they are going and will drop you off right at the front door. Upon our arrival, I opted for the local taxi/shuttle service from the airport thinking I'd be saving money. BIG MISTAKE! The shuttle ended up charging us more than their recommended car service would have... and the local shuttle wouldn't even drive down the road that the home is on. Divine was amazing though and scrambled at the last minute to get a Jeep and drive us herself down the road to the house. Divine was always very responsive if we needed anything.
Shopping and beaches are about a 10 minute drive to either Magens Bay or Red Hook so don't plan on walking there from the house (all of the roads are steep hills). You'll definitely need the car service for your stay or a rental vehicle. Moe's Fresh Market was our best bet for groceries. Pueblos was our second choice for groceries when needed.
A few of the rooms could have used a little more cleaning before our arrival but those are easy fixes. The home and views are beautiful and absolutely worth checking out. Overall, we all enjoyed our stay and would recommend Paradise in Harmony.
I am so glad you enjoyed your time at our home
We are planning on updating paint inside and out during month of September
I take all reviews into consideration and try to address any concerns
Pretty Good/Easy Trip
Our stay at Tabor and Harmony was very good. The views from the house were amazing. There are lots of windows so we really got to enjoy the view. The pool was awesome! The house isn't too far a drive from the town but without transportation, you really can't go anywhere. You'll need a ride. The owners offer a grocery service so we didnt have to rush out for groceries too soon after our arrival. That was convenient and we were grateful. The set up of the house was very helpful. Having as many bathrooms as it did made for extreme convenience. The manager Divine was easy to deal with and responsive. The AC was leaking in the downstairs room and she took care of it quickly. All of our dealings with the owners and manager were always positive and we have no complaints there.
For the cons: If I'm being completely honest, the house needs some work. Most things in it are old. The kitchen is old, cabinets are old, the dressers in the bedrooms, as well as all the furniture in the living areas need a replacing. The dining table broke while we playing cards there but the tabletop wasn't connected to the middle stump and shifted easily simply by resting your hands on it to stand from the table. It was replaced during our stay within a few days.
Also a con was that 1 bedroom could only be reached from outside, down some stairs. Our friends staying there felt isolated. Especially when the weather was rainy.
Aside from that, we were happy to stay at Tabor and look back at the trip fondly. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home.
I’m glad you enjoyed your time at our home
I look at all reviews and take them seriously to address concerns
We are using the month of September to look over everything and plan to refresh all paint inside and out
Nice house with potential
The house was nice and views were amazingly beautiful. The house was well stocked with plenty of room for everyone. The pool and deck were large enough for our group of 9 and again, the views! The negatives...Water tank ran out right before we were going to take showers and get ready for a rehearsal dinner. Divine did take care of it the same day but we all had to go without showers. Cleaning needs improvement. One of the shower drain grates was filled with hair and the counters were dirty. The drive to the house and the driveway itself are a lot worse than imagined based on the descriptions here. We managed with our small SUV. Downstairs room is down some big stone steps outside separate from the house with minimal lighting.
All in all, I think this house would be great with a couple of improvements and will be a good option as long as your party are aware and okay with the drive into the house and the separated 5th bedroom.
I’m glad you had a good time
We are sorry about the issues with the water running out
We had just got 2 loads of water a few weeks prior to your arrival , which is a large amount .
We did have a few leaks that we were not aware of .
Divine handled it promptly . As soon as she was contacted she called and got a water truck to the house and got a plumber out to take care of the leaks .
I understand the frustration , but some things
are out of our control .
Things happen just as they do at any home .
After all that we find a huge burned area in the deck that literally burned a hole through 2 deck boards that we will have to repair from someone smoking and putting their cigarette out in a potted plant , so you claimed .
10 person group
We were very satisfied with this home. Everything was clean and ready for us to use. The views were amazing. The homeowner and manager were very accommodating as we had some troubles with our flights getting there. They stayed in contact and helped us everyday possible. Also, the limo service they recommend is fantastic! We got our use out of it, very reliable and safe drivers! We will definitely be back!
I am super excited to hear you all had a great time on the island and at our home .
Nearest beach is Tutu Bay you can walk from the house ( good hike ) or drive and only take a few minutes from the house. This is not a beach to swim , heavy waves very nice sounding and possibly find a few shells.
Another beach is Magens Bay and it is about 10 minutes from the house or Smith Bay which is about 5-7 minutes from the house.
There are restaurants and bars within 7-10 minutes from house.
