I tried for two years to book this house . It has one of the most stunning views you will see anywhere. Unfortunately the house does not have air conditioning and it was unbearably hot. The meager plastic fan provided did nothing to circulate air. We could not sleep in the beds it was so hot upstairs. We had two laptops with us and the wifi network for the property would not show up as an option on either. We could access it on our phones which was inconvenient for checking or dealing with work related material. I was excited to stay here and hoped to book multiple properties next summer for a group trip but I will look elsewhere. Too uncomfortably hot to be enjoyable with air conditioning.

Upon departure/checkout from this location, I have experienced one of the worst customer service interactions ever. A very unprofessional exchange that shoukd have been handled sooooo differently. I am still trying to effectively engage the company to address, but they tell me to call after the weekend. As with any service interaction, the company's response to an issue is more important than the issue itself, so stay tuned ....

Stayed here for 3 nights. As it was the end of the season most restaurants were closed so we cooked for ourselves. The kitchen was very well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the view from the lounge was superb. The owner was available by phone or email to help with any issues. A perfect stay in a beautiful place. Sandytiger

Hi Sandra, I'm just delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Lilly's this year. I'm sorry that you missed out on some of our amazing restaurants (I think a scheduled power outage during your stay may have disrupted service), however I'm delighted you took advantage of our fully-equipped kitchen. Many of our guests love to cook, so we like to plan for that! We look forward to having you visit again. Warmly, Janet

When I walked into this place, my jaw hit the floor. I was just amazed by it's beauty, and the effort that went into restoring this place and making it one of the most beautiful rentals I have ever seen. All my life I've dreamed of having the ocean as my back yard, and for a brief moment, I did. The views are simply spectacular. We sat and watched the sunset over the cliffs, and then the moon over the cove. Simply the best place I have ever stayed in all of my travels worldwide. I will be back!

We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us at Grandma Lilly's in Fogo. Lilly's was the first to open its doors, and we appreciate that you loved every little detail. We look forward to your return- your backyard ocean will be waiting! Warmly, Amanda

We recently stayed here for 4 nights (should have been 5 but ferry problems delayed us) and loved it! The house is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need for making your stay comfortable including kitchen items and games, and even a jigsaw puzzle. The view was wonderful to wake up to each morning. I'd sit on the sofa sipping coffee, looking at the view, and not wanting to ever move. The bed was super-comfy. Price is great. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Thank you so much Colleen for your kind words. I hope you were able to get off the couch enough to enjoy the rest of the island although I did see you also enjoyed Al Dwyer's walking tour. It's too bad about your delay getting to Fogo. One of the nice things about The Old Salt Box Co is that we can try to accommodate you in one of our other homes close by (Twillingate, Greenspond, or Musgrave Harbour) if there is a problem with the Ferry. Hopefully another time you can enjoy one of these beautiful locations as well. Thank you again. Janet

We spent two full weeks in Grandma Lilly's and wished we could have stayed forever. The bay was full of icebergs, and we spent countless hours watching them through the huge picture windows, naming them, photographing them, watching them founder, melt, change shapes. The house is a wonderful blend of old and new. The town of Fogo is lovely, and the various communities of Fogo Island provided two full weeks of hiking and exploring. The owners are to be congratulated on their series of renovated salt box houses; I hope they do some more.

First review!! We stayed at Grandma Lilly's for a few nights in May. What an amazing find! Our initial discussions with Janet, the owner, were so pleasant...just made me more comfortable and excited with my decision to stay here. The house is in the town of Fogo, on the edge of town right on the oceanfront at one corner of the earth (according to the flat earth society:)) It's about a 15-20 minute drive from the ferry terminal. It's also about a 15 minute drive to Joe batt's arm (Fogo island inn) and no more than 20-25 to the other surrounding villages. When you arrive, you park right up to the front door of the house where you gain entry with a PIN number (emailed to you by Janet). Super easy process. As you open the door, the floor to ceiling windows that frame the front of this house are really the key selling feature. Views over the ocean and the icebergs are beyond incredible. The house is in the signature Fogo Island green colour, big kitchen, couches, dining table, tv, fireplace (electric), even a washer dryer! They have even provided a set of binoculars and a selfie stick for you to use...You have everything you need. There are two well appointed bedrooms on the second floor with two queen beds and the bathroom is on the main floor downstairs. Beds are very comfortable! The bathroom is very large, beautiful claw foot tub, great water pressure in the shower, all towels provided. Most people want to come to Fogo island to stay at the Fogo Island Inn, which is truly beautiful. But for $2000/night it is not accessible to most people. I must admit that I was very happy to have dinner at the inn and to stay at the Old Salt Box!! Would definitely do that again. Would recommend this house to anyone coming to Fogo. Janet was amazing to deal with, the house was beautiful, it was conveniently located (close to the other towns and trails, grocery stores and some restaurants close by) and the views unbelievable. Thanks Janet!! Loved staying here.

Oh thank you so much for your special kind comments about our Grandma Lilly's home. We do try to think of everything to make the home comfortable. The desire for adventure around Fogo Island is left to our guests but that's the easy part. I hope you have the chance to visit us again, maybe another one of our locations.
