Perfect Family House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Marshmelon! Our group included 6 adults and 2 kids aged 4 and 6. This property was perfect. Everyone had plenty of room. The kids enjoyed the games, indoor basketball hoop, and chess/checker board room. The adults loved the multiple porches, especially the screened in back porch with swing that was perfect for sunsets. The beach was a short drive within the complex and was perfect to adventure with the kids. We also enjoyed the community pool with play ground. It was an extra perk that the owners included a free pass to the nearby Hunting Island State Park which has a beautiful swimming beach and cute nature center for the kids. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

Beautiful home! Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay here. The first day was beautiful and we loved watching the sunset from the porch. It is a short trip to the beach, where we found hermit crabs and sand dollars. Our 2nd full day it rained but we still enjoyed our time together playing cards and games. Made so many new memories. Already planning for next year.

Great time on Harbor Island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. This is our 4th time vacationing here and we will be back. The house is always super clean and had plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 kids. We caught lots of crabs in the crab trap and enjoyed fishing on the beach. We caught several huge "Reds" and a few sharks. We can't wait for next year! Thanks again!!!

Relaxing Place to Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a large group stay at this house and didn't feel cramped or on top of each other for the week. The decks overlook the marshes and can see both sun rise and sun sets from the upper decks/porches. There is a egret nesting area just past the house that has 50+ birds there at all times. The community pool was very nice and spacious. The golf cart was a great extra to the house so we could cruise the island with ease. The owners were friendly and easy to communicate with. We would recommend this house to others.
