Vaulted ceilings add to the sense of openness. Built on pilings, the house is nestled in the trees, a great retreat and a nature lover's paradise. A variety of screened and unscreened porches allow you to enjoy outdoor dining, games and sleeping. The walls, floors and ceilings are beautiful, giving the house cozy intimacy with a natural flair. The master bedroom is on the top floor for privacy and cool evening breezes. Two other bedrooms are on the bottom floor.

Wonderful home! Relaxing stay!
Wonderful home! Relaxing stay!
We had the pleasure of staying at this house in June 2013. What a wonderful relaxing home! The home itself is beautifully decorated and welcoming. The house is divided into levels allowing for as much privacy as wanted/needed. The beds are super comfy and we were well rested during out stay. The kitchen is HUGE and beckons you to cook up some wonderful meals while on vacation! Multiple porches throughout the house invite you to pick out a great book from the owner's stash and curl up after a day at the beach. The location of the house is perfect because the beach access walk is right across the street. I can't imagine finding a better home on this island! This house was perfect in every way. Dewees itself has so much to offer....relaxing, fishing, alligator watching, bird watching, or lounging on the beach. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and being there makes you feel like you are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. We definitely hope to return to Dewees for another relaxing vacation!

Taking 4 young adults and a newlywed couple all on vacation with 50 ish parents can be quite challenging. Dewees Island met all of our expectations! Swimming, fishing, turtle walks (my son found a new nest site) and just driving golf carts around filled our days and nights. Judy was there for any question or advice. My husband was glad there was nowhere for me to spend money while I was on the island! The pictures do not reflect the home - it is much better in person. There were so many shells to be found that it was hard to choose which ones were the best to bring home. No time to be bored and we went to the pool only 1 time in the whole week!

Great relaxing getaway
Great relaxing getaway
We stayed at Dewees over last fourth of July week. My parents, kids and I stayed in this house (55) and my brother, his wife, and their 6 kids stayed in another house. This was the best family vacation we have ever taken. Both houses (managed by Judy) were excellent. Pictures are right on as far as beauty and cleanliness. True beauty of this island is the connection to nature, the warm and embracing sense of community, and the simplicity of stepping back in time to no "hustle and bustle". Beach is so beautiful that pictures do not do it justice. It is not unusual to not see but one or two people while on the beach, you literally have it to yourself! I gave my kids the choice of going back to any of our past vacations this year :Mexico, Jamaica, florida, myrtle beach...Dewees was chose unanimously by all! Great family get away!

Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home this week. It has met our every expectation and then some! The art in the home let us know we'd chosen correctly (especially the metal work!) We have truly been to a beach, we thought we had, but finally saw one as God intended! Couldn't have been better for the 11 year old twins, 17tr old senior to be, the 10 year old golden or their 40 something parents! Cannot wait for an opportunity to visit again, it was truly heaven on earth for us.

Reggie and Judy were sooo helpful! Judy greeted us at the dock and was there to see us off...great personal service! The house = beautiful, clean, comfortable and so vacation user friendly. Close to the beach and easy to get around the island with the golf carts. The island = Amazing! Lots of back to nature, bird watching, gators (although I didn't see one, my family did. We got to experience a once in a life time event - watched a nest of loggerhead turtles hatch. The kids were even encouraged to help them get to the water by scaring the ghost crabs away and guiding the turtles to the water. My kids will never forget this trip. Thanks for a great vacation!

Our Family visited Dewees Island in the spring of 2010. The House and island was fantastic. The pictures don’t really show you how pretty everything is. We went fishing, crabbing, clamming and exploring. I highly recommend this rental house for any person, family, couple, group, etc… The memories made that week, will last forever. Thanks, John L Venice, Florida
