  • Girls Getaway

    "We had a girls weekend at the Pineapple Retreat and had the best time. The house is in a perfect location and so close to the beach. The community is absolutely adorable as well. We did the winery tours and were in great location to that. There was a small hiccup in checking in, but the owners were very accommodating and sincere. The owners respond quickly and will help with any recommendations. Even though we did a girls weekend, this house is perfect for families as well. The house is set up in a great way with plenty of beds to sleep. Loved the back patio area and grill! All the linens and kitchen utensils are provided. They have many spices and condiments available for use. I would recommend this to any of my friends and family. Great location, great house, great owners. Thank you for everything!"

  • Great getaway

    "This lodge was perfect for our winter weekend getaway. It was a great place to stay with a spacious interior. Very secluded. Hot tub was perfect for the cold nights. We will be making this place a yearly retreat. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away from it all."

  • Family Fun

    "We just finished a great week at Orange Crush. The house is up to date, clean, and well cared for. The kitchen is large and is well stocked with cooking items for a rental property. The open concept made it easy for everyone to be together. The lower level or basement provides an additional large, finished area. We had 18 people each night and didn't feel crowded. The top floor which has sleeping for 8 is comfortable has it's own bathroom but lacks privacy. Overall a great place."

  • Farmhouse Retreat for the City Folk

    "From the minute I first contacted the owner about this property to the second I left, I loved everything about the experience. The house itself is gorgeous and just secluded enough to feel like no one else is around. Well-appointed, clean, in perfect condition. The land is full of woods and trails and paths - me and my two young kids spent hours exploring. They were unsure about it all at first, and quickly came to love it. Can't wait to go back!"
