We had a great stay in Highland Acres. The house was quite comfortable with lots of room. The back patio area was great. The house is very centrally located with easy access to beach, village, redfern, grocery, etc. If you like great southern barbque, Southern Soul is a short walk. We would definitely choose to stay there again on our next visit and would recommend to others. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We loved our stay on Highland Ave .The listing description was accurate and the photos reflected the appearance. Everything about it was fine except the air conditioning wasn't working at first. However, Sally was very quick to get a repairman to get it going again. We found it very clean, well stocked, kid friendly and close to the beaches, grocery and other attractions. We enjoyed the beach at the Coast Guard station because of the wonderful tidal pools at low tide. It was perfect for our young children. We walked in the Village, ate crab cakes at Barbara Jean's and explored Ft. Frederica and the Lighthouse. We also enjoyed walking around Epworth By the Sea , the United Methodist Church Camp and Conference Center!

Manager response: Thanks for your review! We're very glad that you loved Akuna Matata! I'm glad that the AC glitch didn't cause you too much grief. Hope to see you back again soon.
We were looking for a place we could take our dog at a reasonable price and be comfortable. Let me tell you this house met our needs perfectly!!!! The owner has everything you need to make your visit perfect. We took our bikes, but did not need to. They also have beach chairs for you to use. I really cannot say enough about the hospitality of this home. We hope to rent this home again in the near future.

We spent the winter of 2010/2011 at 112 Highland Ave. and our expectations were exceeded in all categories. The home is beautifully decorated and furnished and is equipped with two large flat-screen TVs. We both love to cook so the kitchen accessories were a real treat. Highland Avenue is a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood and we felt very welcome there. We plan to come back to 112 Highland for the 2011/2012 winter.

GREAT, GREAT HOUSE and location!!
GREAT, GREAT HOUSE and location!!
We stay here every year and love it! The location is great, and the fact that it is a ranch style house makes it easy for my older parents to enjoy themselves as well. House works great for dogs as yard is fenced and shady. There are several accommodations for sleeping, and a den on the back end of the house so "late sleepers" are not woken up! This house has EVERYTHING from beach towels to a waffle maker!

I Stayed here with my wife and parents May 6th-11th. This place is better than described. Backyard is fenced in and we used two of the bikes they furnish and was able to ride them throughout the island. The house is one of the nicest I have rented from VRBO. We loved it so well we plan to rent again in September. Thanks for a great clean rental and a great experiance we all loved it including our Bostons.

We stayed here for a week in early April with our dog who loved the fenced in backyard. The house fit our needs quite well with the updated conveniences. The location is in the middle of the south end of the island which makes it very close to lots of good restaurants in Redfern Village and the Retreat Place shopping center.
