"I rented this fantastic home so that my extended family could celebrate the many "holidays" that occur during the month of May. Our vacation started on Mothers' Day and was soon followed by my mom's 74th birthday. My parents' 50th anniversary and my father's birthday are May 22nd and May 25th respectively.
Our group included family members from Georgia, NC (Goldsboro), DC and Maryland. I arrived with my mother, my 92-year-old grandmother, and two 2.5-year-olds (grandniece and granddaughter). My father, uncle, 3 brothers, sister, sister-in-law, 3 additional nieces and a nephew (all pre-teen), and an older family friend arrived later in the week.
The house was perfect for our group. Each bedroom having a private bath was awesome! The amenities were great, from the pool table to the hammock on the deck to the big-screen TVs. The hot tub, pool and grills were all given proper workouts. The stairs and the mini-sized grills were a little challenging - but any complaints were tempered by the excellence of everything else. Having two refrigerators was extremely helpful.
Getting to the beach from the house was a short walk and well worth it. The nearby shopping options came in very handy considering our frequent trips. I will (and already have) recommend this property and Elan Vacations to everyone I know. Thank you so much for the role you played in making wonderful memories for my family."

"We had such a fantastic vacation over Labor Day. I searched for 3 months before finding this house. We only wanted to stay for the long weekend and every other house required a full week and wouldn't let us know if we could have it until a week before the trip. I couldn't rely on that. Sharon was awesome getting us booked and letting us know exactly what we needed to bring. We had 7 couples and two babies stay. We're in a bible study group and we're together each week, but this was our first time on a trip together. It really was the best weekend ever! The girls enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and sitting in the hottub at night. The guys were in the game room a lot, playing pool and ping pong. We all enjoyed the pool and great deal and spent days at the beach. The rooms were great and everyone had their own space. I'm a book nerd and I was able to read my book in little nooks throughout the house while still feeling part of the group. I especially enjoyed the large table in the kitchen where we could all eat together for each meal. It was a great weekend! We're already planning how we can get back!"

"Our family and friends loved this place so much we came back again a second summer in a row to the same house. The home had all that we needed plus the pool and hot tub. Plenty of room for folks to spread out if they wanted or to hang out together! It's a dog friendly home with shaded decks so the dogs could be outside but not in the sun. The house has great views from the deck, its a short walk to the ocean. We often came back to the house for lunch and back to the beach. Dog friendly beach, although we only brought our dogs on early and the morning and later in the evening. But if you have a dog who would stay at your beach blanket, you could have them with you on the beach. Great surf for body surfing and boogie boards! Also, across from the grocery store is the BEST outdoor seafood market. We grill seafood every night. They had the best crab cakes along with so many other options! There are plenty of places to go out to eat. We went over to Timbuck II shopping area one night and ate at "Upside" which was wonderful. Deck for outdoor eating. Great food, drinks and service! We also hit Northern Lights Bakery but go early....there will be a line and they will run out of great donuts and pastries! Don't forget to sign up for the 5K run/walk by Runcations held every Wednesday during the summer! A few of us also went parasailing out of Timbuck II. So much fun!!!1"
