Incredible Property - Perfect for our Girlfriend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This luxurious villa was the perfect spot for 9 girlfriends to meet for a long weekend. With 5 full bedrooms and 6 baths, a large lanai and a comfortable living room area, along with a wonderful kitchen and dining area, we had plenty of room to spread out in comfort. The bedrooms featured very comfortable beds and pillows with high quality linens. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with.

This location was close to shops, restaurants and the water. We give it 5 stars!

Easter weekend was well spent relaxing here

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely long weekend over the Easter holiday staying at Eagles Watch. The grounds where this home is located is lovely and conveniently located to Sea Island, the grocery store, and many wonderful restaurants. Eagles watch was very comfortable, beautiful decorated and spacious for our family. Every evening the eagles were active and fun to watch as they were hunting in the marsh.

Excellent Rental

This house was perfect for our big family. The amenities could not have been better. We lived on the screen porch as the weather was perfect and the sunrise from the porch was spectacular .

Beautiful family condo

It's a great gathering place for the family, and the spacious accommodations kept everyone comfortable. The lower level with the ping pong table was great for the kids.
