Nice spot close to beach and fishing. House was very clean and comfortable. Enjoyed having coffee supplied for our mornings, with a late arrival at night it was appreciated to be able to have a cup of coffee when we woke the next day.
The sleepy sandpiper is an amzing place to stay with friends and family. The house was very clean and had all the needed amenenties. The location is nice and quiet and perfect for a peaceful and fun getaway. I definately reccomend this house and would surely go back. Alexandra is a great host, and her family was very attentive of anything we needed. Looking forward to another stay at the sleepy samdpiper.
I spotted the new AirBnB Mag yesterday, appropriately enough, at an airport kiosk. When I saw it was the inaugural issue, I had to buy it.
We used AirBnB for travel long before we started hosting (aff) — and from the beginning I’ve loved their vision for travel and hospitality. I wasn’t disappointed by the magazine. It made for great airplane reading and fodder for travel dreaming.
Exploring Havana was the cover story — oh, how I’ve longed to go there! Other beach vacations and summer hot spots were highlighted, too — though the Sleepy Sandpiper wasn’t mentioned (this time!)
I liked the combination of travel tips and pics of exotic places — but was really impressed with the thoughtfulness of the longer articles.
THERE IS A LOVELY PHRASE FROM NIETZSCHE that says the goal of life is to become who you really are. I think he means we should explore all our possibilities, and there are bits of us, waiting to be discovered, lodged in faraway places. So one can see the impulse to travel as a desire to complete ourselves.
Airbnb seems to have really touched upon our travel zeitgeist — the desire to experience, do, explore, become. . . to find ourselves at home in the world.

Worldschooling is on the rise. Families packing up and traveling, kids learning as they go. Not all of us desire to uproot our lives completely, and yet we can adapt worldschool ideas to our own families, right where we are.
“It was our second stay in the Sleepy Sandpiper and it was like coming home. We love Alexandra´s house and we enjoyed our vacation in this private and quiet location. A few modifications have been done since last year. For us it´s the absolutely perfect place to spend our family holiday and for sure we will come back.”
