'Your home & setting are beautiful & so peaceful. We couldn't have chosen a better place.' Georgian
“The view was gorgeous, the grass lush, the landscaping beautiful with all the plants & sculptures. The house was immaculate & had everything we could ever need!” Deborah
“Hate to leave, everything was perfect!" Mary
“This is one of the most awesome places we have stayed in. The quiet evenings & natural views will never be forgotten. So home like! Loved it!” Donna
“We loved the house. The space was great & the location was amazing. Everyone was blown away by all the attention to detail; it seems that you have thought of everything & put lots of love & time into the house. Everything was perfect. I would take a great view of the marshes over oceanfront any day, they're so interesting & beautiful!” Casey
“We had a wonderful family visit & everything about Waters Edge was perfect for our stay. We found the place 'speckless' (my daughter's word)! The sun on the marsh at 7am is beautiful. All info was clear, concise & extensive. Price is more than reasonable to boot.” Sumner
“The brief stay was so much more than we expected! It was serene, yet flavored with adventure. We love everything about this place & will return again for a longer stay. The swing is great! The dolphins spectacular! This little home will provide memories of a lifetime.” Jeff
“What a wonderful find to celebrate 50 years of marriage! So peaceful & tranquil, a retreat from our busy lives. We feel blessed.” Saundra
“Definitely have to experience Water's Edge first hand to fully appreciate it. The cleanliness & the clean lines of your furnishings is exemplary. We talked about other vacations when we have been by the ocean & never noticing the tides as we did here. The marshlands are beautiful & they gave us the opportunity to see the rise, fall and currents. Fascinating!” Beth
“Wow! What a beautiful place. Better than the photos online. Best of all we saw a dolphin swim by us while we were on the dock. Sublime!” Sharolch
“We really enjoyed our stay here. Some of our favorite things – tether ball in the yard, the ring toss game on the deck & finding sharks teeth at Sands Beach.” Angie
“Everything was well-thought-out, serene & squeakily clean (puts our house to shame). It was perfect, thanks to you Cheryl.” Judy
“Felt like a home away from home, very relaxing, with a beautiful view.” Nancy
"If I win the lottery tonight, I'll make you an offer you can't refuse!" Donna
“We had a wonderful time, your place is great!” Rose
“Beautiful place. You went out of your way with so many thoughtful touches - the homemade chocolate chip cookies, the fire pit all ready for marshmallows. All the info & tips about the area, the well stocked kitchen & bathrooms. Everything was perfect. My granddaughters especially loved the swing! We had a wonderful time.” Deborah
“Beautiful Place! Your hospitality is wonderful & we will be back soon! Our entire family really enjoyed the peaceful surroundings & beautiful views.” David
“You have a little piece of heaven. The views were amazing!” Giovapnoli, Rome, Italy.
“Beautiful view to wake up to everyday & enjoy at night.” Stephen
“Such a lovely property & lovely view. The house is well apportioned, stocked & house instructions couldn't have been clearer. A HUGE bonus were the cooking supplies this is RARE in rental properties and MUCH appreciated.” Karen
“The kids ages 15, 27, 29 loved the place & were pleased to see that you had so much set up for them to do. We enjoyed our first vacation home rental.” Marla
“This was a much needed break for our family. Thanks for putting so much thought & effort into this place! We can't wait to come back & stay longer!” Tarra
“We so enjoyed your piece of HEAVEN! You were a great HOST, incredibly organized, accommodating and genuinely welcoming. When looking at possibilities, your place was a slam dunk. The price is very reasonable & the accommodations perfect. The free use of kayak and canoe provided a tremendous savings as well as enjoyment to my family. I would like to share one more thing with you regarding my wife. She likes to be in the middle of things. To be in close proximity to the market as well as other stores. Well let me tell you, Waters Edge opened her eyes to what something off the beaten path can provide. Not that Waters Edge is that far removed from things but to her it was OUT THERE, this opened the door for future possibilities for our family. I share this with you because you touched us all in ways that you probably didn’t realize.” Norm
“We couldn't have picked a better place to have a family vacation. We so enjoyed your beautiful deck & awesome views! You have a little slice of heaven here.” Patty
“What a beautiful place to enjoy the beauty of nature & the zen of life. We love the coastal life & Hunting Island is unmatched.” Karen
“Loved your place. Nice big deck with an awesome view! The fire pit was a plus. This is a great place for a family picking up their marine to come back to each night.” Ivy
“I just wanted to say THANKS for helping to make our 22nd anniversary a special one. The house is way better than the description on the website and the pictures just don't do it justice. We enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to & watching nature especially the wildlife in the mornings & evenings. Getting to watch dolphins from the deck was a super treat.” Angie
“Loved everything. Seeing dolphins so close was wonderful. Everything was perfect.” Katherine
