Spring Break 2018

  • 5 of 5

I work in the travel industry and my honest opinion about this trip (besides the LONG drive with traffic) was one of the most relaxing weeks. I traveled with my son, my Mom and a few others.

The Owner was so great to work with too, thank you!!!!

I will be booking a future stay and also will recommend the Lazy Magnolia to my clients.

We had a great family vacation at Lazy Magnolia! With four little ones, the short walk to the beach and a private pool made our stay much more fun and relaxing! Doug was very accommodating...would definitely rent again!
