Bodee's is the best kept place to stay on the Island. Terry and Theresa are gracious hosts. We love being able to sit outside at night under their Tiki Bar or canopy. It is a quiet and very clean location on the island. All the entertainment is within walking distance, or rent a golf cart from them and enjoy the...

This place is so awesome. The owners go above and beyond to make your stay great. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. Set up the tiki bar every day and enjoyed lunch and drinks. We stayed in the two bed loft and we had a full size fridge,sink,counter tops and a couch. Will stay here again!!

Our visit to Bodee's was excellent. The owners are so kind & go out of their way to make sure all the guests are comfortable and have everything they need. They take great care of the grounds and our room was super clean! The location is great and it is easy to get around town with or without a golf...

My sister and I were looking for a good place to stay for the three days we were in Put-in-Bay, and out of all the options we came across, Bodee's stuck out to us! We chose right. It's private, clean, cozy, affordable, and the owners are very welcoming and kind. We wished there was a pool, there is not, but...

Stayed July 10-12, 2016. My wife and I had our first visit to Put In Bay, and based on the great tripadvisor reviews, we chose Bodee's Bungalow to stay in. The reviews were bang on. This place was everything we were looking for. A short two minute walk to downtown PIB, but nestled on a quiet street. We stayed in...

The owners were amazing and friendly and you could just tell that they cared about your stay. The place was very clean, lots of pillows and extra towels and the beds were super comfortable. I'd have to say the only weird thing was there was a full kitchen in the loft with no utensils, bowls, cups anything. So just FYI...

Thank you so much for the review :) We so appreciate you taking the time to review us and the compliments you gave us! And thank you for pointing out that the room does not have any type of kitchen utensils, dishes, pans, etc. There is a microwave and full size refrigerator; however, the stove/oven is inoperable. There is a...

We have been visiting PIB for 6 years, and have never stayed anywhere else on the island . They just keep upgrading the property and with the new tiki hut and out side lounge area , it is a great place to relax, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings . The BB is so close to town , you will not...

Just got back from a anniversary weekend with my wife. Place was fantastic neat, clean, and quiet. Teresa and Terry are excellent owners. I disagree with the reviewer, Teresa is very up front about being quiet after 10. The place is your own private home. If you want to party head downtown. They have golf carts to rent which are...

Rooms are spotless. Bed and pillows very comfy. Being told by owner to be quiet on the patio at 10:00 at night with threat of calling police did not sit well. We were literally sitting at the the outdoor tiki bar conversing. Four couples aged 40-62. Enjoying ourselves. We were much more quiet than the group on the other side...

So, this is one of the other couples from the group of 4 that stayed a couple weeks ago who were upset with the "quiet hours". Again, this rating appears to be based on our guest policy of "quiet hours after dark" as well. Interestingly, the two reviews are inconsistent. This reviewer states they were told at 10 pm to...

Just returned from a week stay at Bodee's and must say we couldn't have picked a better place. We arrived with several other couples and the property was beautiful, clean and very convenient. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and spotless. The location was perfect because we were near most of the shops, bars and restaurants yet we felt like we...
