Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is just wonderful! The layout was perfect for out family, especially the large downstairs area. It was very inviting and used frequently. I felt great and am so happy that I was able to go. It was a very happy family time.

The kitchen was well-equipped with plenty of storage for groceries. I did not see a broiling pan but we cut our tenderloin into thick steaks and used the grill which was very nice and in good working order. In fact we used the grill several nights.

In the past when owners have supplied paper products such as toilet paper and Kleenex, we have just brought our own. We didn’t have to use ours because yours was so high quality. Thank you for that.

Your supply of cleaning products was also more than adequate.

Everyone agreed that the beds were very comfortable with very nice bedding. We loved your Laura Ashley throw in the living room so much that my daughter got on Amazon and ordered each of us one! I would suggest, especially for the master bedroom that you add another bedside table with a lamp. My husband and I are both readers! We found the plastic tables in the closet and I borrowed a small lamp from the downstairs bedroom and that worked.

The living room couch and love seats were very comfortable as well as attractive. I would suggest that you might want to add another single chair or two. That would help when there are more than 6 adults.

Other really nice special touches:

Decks were great with the hammock and more than enough rockers and loungers. That’s not always the case!

Nice wine glasses!

Large dining table and bar with great seating.

The umbrella was great. One of ours broke and yours worked perfectly.

More shells on the beach than I have ever seen anywhere on the island. I am an addicted sheller so that made me very happy!

Master bathroom has the perfect lighting.

Beach towels are nice and thick. Never had those supplied before.

Thank you for the hair dryer. Very thoughtful!

Pool table and games enjoyed by all.

Beautiful views from all Bedrooms and 2 decks!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! I have rented many homes over the years at the beach but this is now my FAVORITE. Even though the weather was grey for 1.5 days it was so worth being in this home at the beach. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of entertainment and gathering space (we were 12 people and never felt like we were crowding each other). Top floor kitchen and dining with comfy couches in the living room was fabulous and light filled. Bottom floor with large entertainment room in center with pool table and wet bar/fridge kept the boys so happy. Big screen TVs in both entertainment areas a bonus. The VIEWS were amazing with each bottom floor bedrooms having plenty of windows and sliding doors - there were no 'bad' bedrooms! The master suite on top floor AMAZING. Everyone LOVED this house and we felt very lucky to have chosen it. Watched dolphins, birds and boats as well as Mother Ocean AND saw a SUNSET (as well as sunrise) over the ocean! Rare! Ahhhh...would highly recommend this place to a group. Oh yes, by the way, when I had a couple of questions during stay, Lynn answered the phone both times immediately-very responsive. Seriously 5 stars! Sharon

Wonderful Stay for Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home for Thanksgiving. The house was in a private location, with a longer driveway through beautiful trees to the home on the oceanfront. We were surprised at how spacious the home was and how bright and sunny; the photos don't do it justice. There were 10 of us staying together and everyone was able to spread out between the two living areas. I enjoyed the ocean view while working at the sink. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to make our Thanksgiving feast. The house was very clean, there were plenty of towels and paper supplies. The owner was very responsive to our questions ahead of our visit. We would not hesitate to say here again.

Absolute Perfection.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay for our daughter's wedding weekend. It was so easy. Just bring yourself, your clothes, and a few groceries if you like. Everything else was provided from bed linens, bath towels and washcloths, beach towels, chairs, toys, and fishing equipment, and even an extensive spice rack in the kitchen.

It is dog friendly so our two four legged babies got to come along as well. Each of the five bedrooms have deck access and ocean views. Speaking of ocean views, just WOW! Whether on the decks or anywhere inside the house the views are spectacular. You have only a short walk down to what feels like your own private beach.

If I had to suggest an improvement it would to be to have a king sized bed, at least in the master suite, but we slept well in the comfortable queen size.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I never thought about a king size bed in the master. Will have to keep that in the back of my mind. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Lynn

Beautiful property with gorgeous views on a pristine and secluded beach. Great location!

  • 3 of 5

Apparently, housekeeping does not check for broken items (such as 2 "major" ceiling fans and a fragmented porch chair), expired interior lights, greasy griddle, or the like. We did out best to leave the premises much more immaculate than we found them. Owners paid to have these duties performed by their cleaning service, so our issue is not with them. I wanted to steam foods, but could not find ANY "fitting" lids in the kitchen to assist. Kitchen was otherwise well-stocked. It has many spices on-hand, thanks to the gracious owners.

Ceiling fan in the baby's room wobbled treacherously when initially turned on, and parents were afraid it would instantly drop upon their 19 mo son, so they immediately cut it off for safety reasons. The ceiling fan in the adjoining downstairs bedroom near his crib was also broken. We only utilized 3 of the 5 bedrooms during our stay. The Master Suite was fine, but its adjoining bathroom only had 2 light segments that worked. (That was OK).) There was neither a light in the shower nor over the toilet. My husband and I used another bathroom light as our "night light".

Their was a huge bowl of cigarette stubs left on the deck, again a housekeeper oversight, not an issue with the owners. Our 19 mo grandson discovered it. That was not OK. The rental was wonderful in itself. Would I rent this again? Beautiful beach house, but a lot of stairs (3 flights) for older 72 yo folks to navigate. Were there no other issues, I'd re-rent in a heartbeat! Very tastefully decorated. Poor housekeeping!

Owner's Response: We are going to replace the fans as soon as we get a break. We have been highly rented this year and the fans were not a problem back in May. Actually one was just broken a week or two ago most likely by someone playing pool and hit it with the stick. I am sorry about the light bulbs and agree they should have been changed by our cleaning service. We keep extra bulbs down there for that. As for the griddle it must have been the last people that used it and put it back up dirty. We try our best to address any issues as quickly as we can. Thank you for letting us know.

The house is great & the location is wonderful. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out or hang out together in the great room & kitchen. We thoughly enjoyed our stay and talked about going back next year. Thanks Lynn & Wayne
