"We were looking for a vacation rental that would accommodate a boat and we were lucky enough to find The Ice House! The house is very comfortable and the location is great! We were able to launch the boat and store the trailer at a marina just around the corner. It was great having the boat right in the back yard! A great beach access is just a quick ride down the road making it the perfect location for the surfers in our group. My husband and his friend caught 2 croaker off the dock in the backyard the first morning! They were quickly cleaned and served for breakfast! What a great way to start the vacation! The week included off shore fishing, flounder gigging at night, crabbing off the dock, and clamming in the sound. You really can't ask for more! The owner is extremely nice and very helpful. Sharing his knowledge of the local waterway was beyond helpful! The location does come with a "price". The house is in an unusual location, not exactly a neighborhood. We loved that we were pretty much by ourselves. Be prepared to unplug. TV and internet access are not the best, but that is part of being on the island. Once we got used to it, life is much better without TV and computer! The cargo lift is another one of the best things about this house. Moving in and moving out was SO MUCH EASIER! The second sink in the kitchen turned out to be something else we all liked a lot. The view from the top of the house is spectacular! Sunsets are something to be celebrated and you couldn't ask for a better place for that! My whole family loved the set up of the deck too. All in all, this is a great vacation home! You won't go wrong if you choose The Ice House for your vacation rental!"

"This was our second time at this VRBO and it was just as awesome as the first visit. Nice house design with bedrooms on the lower level. Upscale furnishings - nicely appointed kitchen. And if you take the time to notice there are some very thoughtful pieces of art on the walls. Lovely screened porch on the first floor and two master bedrooms. Thanks so much to owners for this great rental unit. We will return. We really enjoy being on the Sound side. Fabulous sunrise and sunsets watching the Sound."

"Our family enjoyed the home and sights. It was a beautiful place and very kid friendly. The owners take great pride in the property and it shows in all the little details. There was plenty of room for our family of 6 adults and 2 infants. We would love to visit again, and recommend to others. The welcome package was a beautiful surprise as well. We are a military family and squeezed this great vacation in between one soldier returning and our other deploying. The vacation was a memorable one to say the least. Thank you Jayne for opening your home to us."

"We really enjoyed our time at Something Fishy! We arrived late on Saturday evening and fell into bed exhausted after a 10 hour drive. The beds were comfortable, and we felt very welcomed by the sweet treats on the table when we came in. We enjoyed the surrounding beaches, especially the one just down the road from the house. The house is just a few miles from everything it seems!
Jayne is so hospitable and texted and emailed to make sure everything was good. My mom was able to take a week away from taking care of my elderly grandmother who has Alzheimer's, and when I asked Jayne how much it would cost to add my mom to the rental agreement, she was gracious enough to allow my mom to come at no extra cost, saying my mom deserved a break!
The house was nice and comfortable. I LOVED the gigantic easy chair in the living room. I want one at my house! The Adirondack chairs outside need painted, but that didn't deter us from sitting in them and relaxing in the evening after a long day at the beach. We loved the hot tub and I think we used it almost every day. We didn't really use the downstairs basement Tiki Room game room much except to store our life jackets and boogie boards, and use the water hose to spray the sand off. I didn't realize until half-way through the week that there is a shower down there for that purpose! So that was nice. But the game room was a bit musty and worn.
All in all, we had a wonderful, relaxing week at the beach, with my kiddos and my mom. We will definitely be back. Hopefully next year!"
