Recent Drakes Island property reviews

  • Very clean, well equipped, great location

    "This cottage is well-equipped and very, very clean. Excellent condition and very nicely decorated. Located at the quiet north end of Drakes Island, well away from the crowds near the main public beach access. There is no public beach access or parking nearby, so the beach is all yours. It is located near the Wells Reserve a.k.a. Laudholm Farm, which is a great place to walk or jog and explore. The beach owned by the preserve is part of the Rachel Carson wildlife refuge, and there are no houses at all on that part of the beach, which ends in a beautiful tidal river. Great tide pooling there at low tide and my kids were in heaven hunting for crabs, hermit crabs, shrimp, starfish, etc. I can't stress enough how desirable this north end location is for getting away from the crowds. If you are not familiar with Drakes Island, it is a place I have been going to for 35 years in the summer. They have a great rec program for kids, and there is a "little kids camp" for ages 3 to 7 three mornings a week. Big kids, over 8, have camp five mornings a week. A great break for Mom and Dad. This is run through the DIIA, which owns the community house with two tennis courts, two playgrounds, and a basketball court. Weekly renters can join for a small fee. The beach is good for surfing, boogie boarding, etc. An ice cream truck makes the rounds a few times a day, something my kids never forget! If you want a memorable family vacation, Drakes is the place,and this cottage iS perfect. We are a family of five, and it was just right for us."

  • "We were one of the first renter ('08) to stay in this delightful home. It was very well appointed. We had a full house while we were there as we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and quite a few relatives came to help us celebrate. The house held everyone quite nicely. It was a very short walk to the beach. We had a great time and hope that we can make it back there soon. You won't be disappointed in renting this cottage."

  • Perfection!

    "My family - husband, 3 adult children, one son-in-law and baby granddaughter found ourselves so very much at home in this Drakes Island rental. It actually didn't feel like a rental - the home is so clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owners have thought of everything a person would need while on vacation. The house is spacious and we never felt crowded. The guys loved the small refrigerator in the sun room along with the flat screen TV. The gals loved the living room and we all enjoyed sitting out on the patio. The short walk to the beach is so pleasant as is the walk around the neighborhood. Everyone is so nice and friendly. The first night we took a walk with our dogs, children were outside playing and people were sitting out on their porches enjoying the big band swing music being played off in the distance- it was like we had taken a step back to a more gentler time. We are so looking forward to returning to Drakes Island and this home away from home."

  • Amazing beach house!!!

    "We recently rented this beach house for a week so that we could attend our son's wedding on Drake's Island. This home made a beautiful week even better. The home is tastefully furnished, the 1st floor is laid out extremely well - allowing for comfortable entertaining. The beds (we only used 5 of them) are all comfortable. The sunroom with it's view of the ocean is charming - a great place to relax. Everyone remarked at what a special house it is - and it truly was. The owners were terrific with giving us information as to where to shop and dine. They allowed us to use the bikes in the garage. And the beach is just across the road! Great for early morning walks with a cup of coffee. We would like to return to Drake's Island and are hoping to rent this house again. Someone remarked that we had the best rental on the whole island - I definitely have to agree! Thanks to this great family for letting us use their home."
