I had a great time at Shark Cove rentals. The owner was always helpful to any of my needs. The people who work there are very friendly and fun to talk to. This is by far the best location on the North Shore. Beaches are within walking distance . One of only two grocery stores is within a 2 minute walk. Surfing, snorkeling, and bike rentals are within walking distance. The bus stop is right out front (I didn't rent a car this time). I would stay here again.

The place was very homey & felt like if you were living in the midst of a locale. Location is prime & they didn't take away the cottage/authenticity of living the island life. You get to meet interesting and lively people that can be someone you can have as a friend if you're willing to socialize & be open to what they bring to your stay. It was very decent for what you pay for & not at all what most well-to-do travelers are used to. Good & friendly home staff who happens to be family members.

Our entire experience was horrible. First, no one to welcome us when we arrived. Then the flat and the room were not even close to cleanish. At night, we banged our head in the metal and low mezzanine bed. The bathroom & kitchen were really dirty and missing basics products and dishes, such as salt, pans, etc... We wanted to leave sooner than expected (we stayed 1 night). The owner tried to make us pay many additional fees such as cleaning and the sum we had already paid to hostel world.

Owner Comment (Hide)
John and Wilma Lane (owners) would like to respond on each point. It is a shame when guests use comment venues to act out their anger with lies. Their entire experience was a 1 day. The day they arrived, they had already planned to call us as they had arranged another place (free w/friend). They called and we told them because they were cancelling last minute, they would pay 1 night and cleaning fee for cancelling.Our housekeeppers come in daily and clean all areas, affordable for north shore.
