"RENT THIS HOUSE! You will love it. This residence is the perfect HHI beach house for families. Here’s why:
LOCATION Quick 2 block walk to the beach on quiet/beautiful street. Even with kids this only takes 4-5 minutes. Additionally, you are only a 4-5 minute walk to Coligny, and all that is there
POOL The pool is awesome…indeed one of the larger private pools on HHI. We were checking out (comparing) other pools all week, and this one was far and away the best. Trust us. Also, the pool is surrounded by an ivy wall and high fence…so you are in your own private courtyard!!
HOT TUB This is not your run-of-the-mill hotel hot tub. Rather, this is a therapeutic jet-tub (multiple jets for feet, back, neck, legs, etc.) that can seat several adults comfortably. This is the perfect way to relax after a beach day. Also, the hot tub has cool lighting and is in the breeze way, so it can be used rain or shine!
BREEZEWAY Even if the house did not have any other benefits, this amenity alone would make it worthwhile for you to rent.! The breezeway is fantastic! We ate at the table every day, played games, relaxed in the great furniture, overlooking the pool. Awesome!
SPACIOUSNESS We had 11 people, and we did not feel the least bit congested. Guest house offers a couple/family its own place, complete with kitchen and 1.5 baths; sleeps 2 upstairs and a king bed downstairs. In the main house, all bedrooms/bathrooms are large. With great, bright décor, the home is extremely livable!
EXTRAS Nice pool floats pool/beach toys, boogie boards, kayak, beach chairs, bikes (4 adults, 1 w/infant seat; kid’s bike), coolers, jogger’s stroller corn hole set, and cart to haul it all to the beach! Inside there are cars, games, all possible kitchen utensils/dishes, 2 coffee makers (including a Keurig) The owners have truly thought of everything. Just jump in your car and come. You’ll have all you need (no extra packing!).
OWNERS The owner’s communication before/after booking, and when we were there, was phenomenal. Owners were quick to reply to every question and very gracious. You can tell that they take pride in their home and that they want you to have a great stay…and will do all that is necessary to ensure you enjoy your time. We really loved staying in a place where the owners were so thoughtful.
This house is a winner all around. In fact, my daughter liked it so much she asked me often if we could live there forever. ☺ You won’t regret staying at 8 Egret!"
