3/5 Okay

Dog days
Sonja is very helpful and has lots of info . Our main concern were the dogs barking . Sonja has seven,and they are not to bad . It is her neighbors who have big dogs and when one barks they all bark. At times it is very hard to get any rest . The property is small,approximately 150' x 120' on which there are five cottages ,The owners house ,a work shed, a storage shed and an outside shower with a toilet . Not at all what it looks like in the pictures . The cottages are clean and well kept . A car is a must as the closest beach is at least a twenty five minute walk

Amazing Property
Cindy and I stayed in Sonja's Pink Cottage for 1 week. We absolutely loved our time there and hope to make it back again. It did rain a lot but we always found an adventure to go on. Driving on left side of the rode was a challenge. Buzz and Cindy.

Truly special
I had a fantastic stay in Sonja's little cabin. It's well built, well maintained and truly special, situated in a lush green garden away from it all, yet close to St. John's. There's a fifteen-minute walk to Deep Bay, and chances are you'll get the beach pretty much to yourself. The cabin has a well-equipped kitchen and a small, nice bathroom, it has a quiet AC system as well as a ceiling fan, keeping the indoor temperature comfortable. Sonja is a fantastic hostess, she's doing exactly what she's meant to do in life. She greeted me as an old friend, arranged transports and took me out sightseeing on several occasions. This cabin is highly recommended, and I’m planning to return soon.

Very friendly place to stay, Sonja makes this place, she is so helpful.
Stayed seven nights, Sonja gives you a tour of five island so you know where the beaches are and what's around the area, she is very approachable and will do anything to make your stay enjoyable.The shack we had was very comfortable and the free Wi-Fi was excellent,lovely hot water for the wonderful shower.We did have a jeep and do recommend as you are a little way out from St Johns, we did manage to walk it,took about 40 minutes,you can always get a taxi back. We spent an afternoon at deep bay which is beautiful,we walked there which was lovely as you get to see the sights around you, we also walked around five island village, the people there are so friendly.Sonja has lots of little dogs but to be honest they don't bother you but they love the attention if you want to give it.The tree's and plant's have matured making the shade if you want to be out of the sun,all in all a lovely stay 'thank You' Sonya for your friendship and hospitality.

A wonderful experience
We had a great time at the Pinkshacks Studio cottage which is beautifully situated in a luscious tropical garden. Our accomodation left nothing to be desired, and Sonja was an amazing hostess who gave us a great tour on our first day and supplied us with lots of information about the island that made our stay that much more fun and interesting. The adorable cats and dogs on the property were lovely to play with!
