OMG!!! It was perfect!!
"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."

Smileaway - -wonderful place to create family memories
"Our family had an awesome time at Smileaway. The accommodations were excellent. Beautifully decorated. The owner thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. Our grandchildren really enjoyed the pool and playing in the backyard. The kitchen provided us with a great spot to cook and have family meals. Relaxing on the balcony at night was truly a treat. The view was great and the breeze welcoming. The beach in this area was beautiful and not overcrowded. We would love to come back some time in the near future. Thank you for a delightful week."

"Great time for everyone. Kids and grandkids. Plenty of room 16 people in the house and never felt cramped. Pool area was great with the spa and baby pool. Loved watching the sunrise in the morning over the ocean and sitting on the deck in the evenings listening to the waves. I would recommend to anyone as a great get away for any type of group. My family did a fishing trip. Wild horse tour, Visited the lighthouses, shopped. Most relaxing vacation I have had in years."

"We had a memorable week at Sea Forever! There was 19 of us in total and we had plenty of room. The house seemed to be one of the most well maintained in the area with beautiful landscaping and a great pool. It is an easy walk to the beach and there are plenty of other activities within 5 minutes of driving. We ran out of time to do all the fun stuff we wanted to! The house is so well stocked (bicycles, toys, fabulous kitchen, movies, games, etc.) that you won't need to worry about renting or buying anything except food and souvenirs.
A big influence for picking this house was its wheelchair-accessible bathroom to accommodate my wife. The roll-in shower was a good size and there was enough room overall to maneuver with the door closed. I made a few small recommendations to Jim based on our personal experience that might make things even easier for the next person, and he said they would be implemented.
Speaking of...it was a pleasure to work with Jim and he made sure we had what we needed. Everything you need to know is well laid out in the renters guide. We would definitely go back."
