  • Awesome Property

    "We stayed at this house the week of 7/6/2014. It was very clean, well equiped, and the decor was wonderful. The entrance is a large room were you are able to leave your shoes to avoid tracking the sand to the rest of the rooms. This room also has an air hockey table which was a hit for the kids. The second floor bedrooms master faces the ocean and the other two the pool. All these bedrooms have decks. The best view of the ocean is from the third level of the house - the living room/kitchen area. We loved having breakfast or lunch overlooking the ocean. The property is separated from the ocean by a quiet, dead-end road and of course, a dune; however the beach access is convieniently close to the property. The lower level, outside shower area is convenient as well. When we rented this property my concern was how well equiped it was because I did not want to be in a position to aquire kitchen utensils on site, but I also was not thrilled about packing my kitchen to bring it with me. This house is well equiped- from kitchen utensils and kitchen appliances, to beach gear (umbrellas, beach cart, beach chairs etc.). The owner also offers a linen packet for a charge; it is totally worth getting it. Beware of staircases if you are traveling with elders or people with physical limitations. We traveled with our grandmother, so she took the third floor bedroom where she had access to the a bathroom, a deck, kitchen, and living room in the same level. The huband, I , and the kids adapted to the stairs fairly quickly. It hasn't been a week yet, and we can't wait to return."

  • Exceeded all expectations!

    "The villa was such a great find...close to the beach (including an ocean view), reasonable rate and well-appointed. The owner Natalie, was such a delight and it was obvious she put great care and time into furnishing the rental. The décor was lovely, coastal not tacky beach theme, unlike many of the other options on the island. The Villa had everything you might need including plenty of beach towels, plenty of kitchen tools, a grill, two golf carts and on and on but we were most appreciative of how responsive and attentive Natalie was throughout the booking process and our stay. Thank you Natalie!"

  • Wonderful Place!!!

    "I am writing this review while I am down here because I feel a need to let families know that this place is outstanding! The home is very clean and it has everything in it! Very organized. We feel at home here. The ocean is a short walk across the street and the sound is behind us where we have been fishing. I like to run in the mornings and it just so happens that right outside on the road is a bike path! We ordered linens through Seaside Linens and they were delivered on time and there were plenty of towels to get us through the week. We shopped at Food Lion and Walmart market place. Two doors down there is a farmers market that sets up daily. It was nice just to walk over and get what you want. It's just beach life down here! Everyone is nice and laid back! This is a vacation to relax and just lay back and enjoy nature. It's not a run around eat out type of vacation. Last if all the owner was a pleasure to work with! Very nice and helpful! We are for sure coming back to re rent this lovely place!!"
