5+ stars. Awesome home, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further! Our family of 6 stayed at this home in August of 2015 and it was all we hoped for and more! We've been renting summer homes for 10+yrs and this house is by far the best we've rented. It's beautiful and well kept and was perfect for our 4 kids (ages 6-12years). Its a 3 minute walk to an amazing beach. I am happy to say that this home delivers 100%. The kitchen is well equipt with everything you could imagine and the bedrooms and bathrooms are so cute and clean - it was truly a great rental. It was very easy to work with the owners so the vacation planning was seamless and easy. My kids had such a great time using all of the fun beach toys and boogie boards that are included with this rental. The owner was very responsive to my inquiries and provided great additional suggestions about dining in and around the Goose Rocks area. We hope to be back soon!

GRB vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful house to stay in. We were mere steps to beautiful GRB! We had a wonderful stay and our kids loved the house as much as the beach. We couldn't have been happier with our stay, the house offers everything, it was comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated and the kids just loved the huge family room upstairs as did we. The bedrooms were perfectly decorated, our kids loved them.

Thank you for the wonderful memories, we look forward to creating many more there again.
