A Whimsical Home Designed To Make Memories
"Memories are made where memories are possible. Artists and Anglers is whimsically decorated in a way that invites guests to use their imagination and make some memories. For our family, with six adults and five grandchildren, we imagined pirates.
There is a treasure chest in the house and that was just the start. The loft is perfectly suited to become a pirate ship. Add a few “pirate-themed” items from a party store before leaving home and the stage was set for high seas hijinks.
The Avon Luau (at Koru Beach Klub – Tue. evening) has a pirate theme – with the word “luau” apparently thrown in to justify the leis passed out as guests enter. It’s great fun for kids and the band (although musically average at best) stays in character throughout the evening, interacting with kids on a constant basis.
We made our own treasure hunt, including a “found” bottle on the beach with a note and clues. Grandkids dug up the “treasure” (our own chest, not Claire’s), and the fun continued all week.
The centerpiece of all this mirth and mayhem was Artists and Anglers. It is roomy, well cared for, close to the beach, has stunning views – everything you read about from other guests. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped and deserves special mention.
The owner (Claire) is exceptionally and efficiently responsive to any concerns or questions. There shouldn’t be many. Come prepared for fun and leave, as we did, with a treasure chest filled with memories. (Again, ours not Claire’s.)"

"Great location! Quiet residential section right by the sound. Updates abound! From the nice fluffy towels, pretty wood floors, soft linens, electronics galore,....the list goes on. Kayaks are great fun in the sound. We managed to see deer on the bank further north while we were kayaking one day. About as serene an experience you can have. We had 3 girls, age 8, 9 & 10 with us and they loved the place. Nice to be able to get them into bed at night in their own room with a movie (plenty of selections) playing to ease them into sleep. The game room downstairs was fun but only after we cleared out all of the cobwebs and swept up a few dead bugs. Musty down there. A few minor hiccups: lock code didn't work at check-in so we had to contact owner to reset remotely which took a good 30 minutes to accomplish. Of course, that gave us a little time to check out the sound so not a biggie. 2 of the 4 burners on the stove were non-functioning so we had to juggle a bit to cook for 7 people each night. There were also a few cobwebs inside the house itself. We had window unit AC for the first 2-3 days which was a downer. Owner apologized for that since the guys who were supposed to install their whole house central AC unit came up sick and weren't able to get it done in time. Out of her control and kudos for getting them in on a memorial day holiday to actually install it. Very detailed instructions on everything were laid out nicely. Since my father and I were the only ones who actually read them, it was funny to watch everyone else try to figure out how to turn on the living room ceiling fan (hint: try the white remote-lol). Plenty of extras to take to the beach including 4 chairs, lifeguard style umbrella, Frisbees, sand toys, bocce ball, plus a wheeled cart to use to roll all that stuff over the dune.
Since our crew is pretty laid back, we were able to overlook the "hiccups" that I listed earlier and have a truly wonderful vacation. I could see where someone who...say resides north of the Mason-Dixon line, might not be able to overlook those hiccups.
Overall, a great vacation in a nice property. Would definitely do it again and recommend to my friends & family."
