Perfect summer getaway!
Perfect summer getaway!
The Meadow House was the perfect retreat for our family this summer. The pictures did not do justice to this home. The minute we walked in, we realized we were not renting a property for the week, but someones home. The pool and gardens were amazing, it made us feel like we were miles away from anywhere! The home was spacious, immaculately clean, and had everything we needed to be entertained , games, books, nearby attraction info, beach pass. Also, the owners and our rental manager, Colleen, were very responsive to our inquires and professional. This was a wonderful week for us and we would highly recommend this home.

There were three of us staying for the week and we had a fabulous time. This house was spotlessly clean, well appointed (many amenities provided), had the most comfortable furniture (inside and out) and overall was a joy to experience. We loved the screen house, the outdoor decks, the pool and the yard. For 4 years we have been searching for a great home longing to find one to come back to each year. Alas, we found it. Thank you for a wonderful experience and for sharing your home with us. We look forward to returning again next year.

Meadow House Makes For A Memory Book Vacation
Meadow House Makes For A Memory Book Vacation
We are home again from vacation and wishing that wasn't so. Isn't that the best indicator of a wonderful time away with family? What fun we had watching our 4 yr. old granddaughter in the beautiful pool. She went from hanging on the side of it for dear life to swimming under water and diving for rings in 5 day's time.Watch out! She's coming at you with another cannon ball! We loved watching her develop and seeing her sheer delight in learning how to swim. And our 6 yr. old grandson? Swimming like a fish only to surface and blast his auntie with a water gun and then disappear again like a submarine. I don't know whose laughter tickled us more. The 6 yr. old's or his 30 yr. old aunt. There is no dollar amount you can put on building such happy family memories and this lovely home was so conducive to that. We had an awesome week in a beautiful home surrounded by gorgeous gardens. The open, homey feel to this house was exactly what we were hoping for when we were looking to rent a home for our family vacation. We were all sad to be leaving. Each other and the house. A special thank you to Colleen for addressing every concern or need we had. She could not have been more accommodating and we look forward to working with her again. No need to thank us for leaving the house in order. That is something all people should do when they've been accorded the priviledge of renting someone else's home. Wishing all those who are thinking about renting the Meadow House the same wonderful experience we had.
