  • Perfect in everyway!!!

    "My husband and I along with our 3 young boys plus dog spent 2 amazing weeks here. Christi made us feel like her own family. The condo has every thing you need to make you feel right at home. This was our second time renting this condo and plan in renting many more times in the future. We had plenty of room with 3 boys ranging from 17 months to 12 years old. My husband and I are very picky about where we rent and this place met all of our needs. Short walk to the beach, dining, shopping and nightlife. It also helps that the owners really care about their renters and want to make your stay perfect."

  • Wonderful Mini Vacation!

    "This condo is wonderful, the owner has thought of everything! We stayed for 4 days and had a great time. The kids loved the bunk beds and the condo is furnished in a cool beachy theme. The owner was very easy to communicate with and the unit was spotless when we arrived. The view off the balcony is the best part. You can sit and have coffee or a drink and watch the ships go by, see dolphins or beautiful sunsets. We can't wait to come back next year!"

  • Great for Extended Family Vacation

    "We had 13 people ranging from 2 to 72 and the accomodations were well suited to everyone. For a house that is almost 100 years old, it was very comfortable, quiet and modern in its conveniences. We loved the closeness to the beach (and the ice cream shop) and the chance to relax and unwind for the Labor Day weekend. We will definitely consider returning. Thanks for opening your home to us!"

  • What a pleasant surprise!!!

    "I booked this town home at the last minute and was a little concerned about the decor (it wasn't beach oriented as I prefer while on vacation). I was so pleased to find that the owner had just redecorated and provided many upgrades to the town home!! The place was wonderful. We brought my great aunt (walks with a cane) and were also concerned about her enjoying herself. Needless to say--- she couldn't have been more comfortable. We had our own private in house elevator!! Also, this town home is within steps of the beach, Marlin Monroes, and the playground. I recommend it, but the only thing I ask is that you love it as we did, because we are planning to return ASAP.
