Highly recommended home! Understated Charm & Elegance | Tall Ceilings, Lots of Windows & Light
"I booked this home for a small family weekend trip in early summer. We wanted to include our 2 small pups (and Turkey Hollow allows dogs) so this sealed the deal for us. The home was impeccable clean, decorated and really well taken care of. You could tell that the owners take a lot of pride in their home and it shows! Upon entering the home my mom (who is very hard to impress) yelled..."oh" because she was so taken back with the beauty of the foyer area, front stairwell and large porch. Note: the photos online don't give this home as much justice as it deserves. The owners have created a really unique and thoughtful atmosphere with tons of woodsy details, natural light, space and comfort. We would love to go back again with more family for winter trip. Highly recommended!"

"As advertised! This was a great place to stay. The unit is clean, well-appointed, and very family friendly. As other reviewers noted, the walk-in closets are huge and perfect for a pack-n-play if you're traveling with a young child. The location is close to a playground, South Beach, and the main commercial district – all are walkable – but still residential and very peaceful. The owner, Theresa, is communicative and easy to work with. Overall, highly recommended."

Spacious home with first floor master suite, walking distance to a beach.
"We liked the extra-large family room, and the well-equipped kitchen with granite counters and high-end gas stove. The master BR on the first floor is spacious and quiet, has a large closet, beautiful master bath with spa tub that was like a luxury hotel bathroom. Other BR on the first floor is a walk-through room, but you can shut both doors and guests can walk around the other way through the family room. Upstairs are two large bedrooms and a 'vintage' bathroom with a tub and a separate small shower. Very comfortable beds and nice linens in ALL of the bedrooms.
Be aware that the first floor has a few random places with one-step-down, so we were constantly having to watch the little ones to be sure they didn't fall (which of course the baby did once when we couldn't catch him in time). Also, there is no door on the basement stairs. They provide two baby gates so that was helpful. You will find baby gates and a high chair in the basement furnace room.
The washer and dryer are in the basement. There is a low spot at the bottom of the stairs and I hit my head going down to do the laundry so was very reticent to go to the basement during the trip, but laundry has to be done. There is a bedroom in the basement; but the basement has lower ceilings, like a lot of old homes, and just felt like an old basement to me, so I certainly wouldn't sleep there. Teens and 'tweens probably wouldn't mind it though.
We had issues with A/C and electrical, however the homeowner was quick to respond and eager to take care of the issues quickly. I was happy to receive my deposit back very promptly.
You can walk to Tiscornia Beach (a quiet beach area with no public amenities) from the house in about 15-20 minutes. The wagon provided was very helpful in towing the little ones to the beach and just to take them out for a morning walk. You will need to drive to get to Silver Beach, which is a large public beach with lifeguards and nice amenities."
