We stayed here for two weeks during our honeymoon in June of 2015. Kathy was very friendly and helpful. She was always willing to discuss/provide tips on the best beaches, places to eat, or how to get around the island. She also frequently left fresh cut fruit by our door and other little extras. She has the sweetest set of pets (a cat, Dolly, and dog, Lovey) that were happy to let you scratch their ears while they slept in the shade. It is located a few streets up from the Malecon. Enough distance that is was incredibly quiet but still less than an 8 minute walk from the main street. (If it was really hot we walked slowly because it isn't that far)
The studio we stayed in had one bed, one bathroom, and a small kitchenette (toaster and a hot plate). It is attached to the main portion of the house that Kathy lives in. We were there two weeks and it never felt like we were invading her space or her ours. I can't recall if there was a TV but the internet was fine. Clean, neat, and comfortable.
We would highly recommend this place to stay! Kathy is very hospitable and we felt like whatever we may need she was willing to either provide or tell us how we could get it!
A note-Kathy is very conscientious about conservation:she recycles, asks that you only use the AC when needed, etc. This fit with our view so it was no problem at all -I only mention this in case someone really really loves AC, you may want to bring a fan :-) However, this is a pretty common theme on the island.
