Sought-after tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Phyllis is exceptionally responsive, hospitable, and accommodating even though she had personal matters to take care of while we stayed on her beautiful property. The flat is very clean, comfortable, and homey with an incredible view. We enjoyed the sun, the rain, the stars, and the moon even with the humidity. Lovely local folks and communal environment. Certainly wish we could have stayed longer. Looking forward to our next trip here already. Thank you, Phyllis!

Sister's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at River Roost. First thing we saw when we got there were the dolphins swimming and playing in the river. We really enjoyed the boathouse fishing day and night. The cottage had everything we needed and more and was very clean. We are already planning our next trip for the fall.

Relaxing Family and Dog Friendly Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful spot located directly on the water with a dock and crab traps. The upstairs rental was perfect and Phyllis was more than accommodating! She put the crab traps out to ensure we'd have fresh crab to eat for my birthday dinner. My dog Maisey loved the lazy sunny days hanging out on the grass and dock. I was truly happy that they didn't charge a pet fee. My parents enjoyed relaxing on the couch overlooking the water as they sipped their coffee, watching for dolphins. This rental has everything you need and we plan on visiting again soon.
