Gorgeous house and beautiful views
We spent a lovely 4 nights at Riverdance in September and couldn’t have had a more relaxing trip. Todd’s house is just beautiful and was exceptionally clean. Everything we needed to feel like we were right at home. We spent most of our time on the deck and in the pool...can’t beat the views. We also enjoyed the fire pit and the hot tub when it cooled down at night. We can’t wait to come back!
This property has it all... a gorgeous setting that is akin to a beautiful ever changing nature portrait, a gorgeous pool & hot tub that are seamless with the surroundings, & an impeccably decorated & spotlessly clean updated home with ample community space for families to gather & wonderful nooks to sneak off for quiet time.
The screen in porch is ideal for watching kayakers / boaters float by while you dine el fresco on a meal you prepared on the Weber grill. The bedrooms are good size & offer comfy beds. The washer dryer are also a convenience for keeping up on beach towels. The AC set at 72 kept the home nice & cool. I was a bit concerned about that before our arrival as I have asthma & we usually keep our AC set at 69/70 at home but this felt comparable & very comfortable. The yard is larger than it appears in photos which was wonderful for yard games. We set up croquet & kuub and still had plenty of space. There is a fire pit on site which was good size but we never got around to using it bc the screen porch was so comfortable to play boardgames in at night. The kitchen is centrally located in the home & near the backyard entertaining space. It is updated with ample granite counter space & fantastic newer (& quiet) appliances. The frig is large enough for plenty of food storage & the ice maker does work.
I cannot express how serene the surroundings are...& ever changing. Two cranes greeted us in the backyard, fish jumping in the river, geese flying overhead, the reeds along the river swaying in the breeze, & the sunset (gorgeous). It really was like living in a moving picture of nature for a week.
While in the area, we shopped, boated, dined, & visited with family. I always like to share unique experiences we stumble across & this trip was retro boats. They offer cute little boats fitted to look like 50s cars that you can toodle down the river in. They also offer donut boats for groups of up to 10. We did both & thoroughly enjoyed it. Check them out. For dining, check out Bowdies Chophouse & Marros? (Italian). The piano bar was adult fun.
Todd was wonderful. Very responsive & accommodating to special requests.
We rent an avg of 6 vacation rentals per year, all over the world, so when we give a 5 star rating, it is earned.
Thank you, Todd, for sharing your home with our family & friends. And pass along a special thank you to your cleaning crew as your home was spotless (& I'm a clean freak!)
We will happily return!
Great house, great location, great experience.
Our family had a great week at Riverdance.
Amazing property. Perfect for family get together.
This was a perfect place for a family vacation with our grown children. Between the pool, the hot tub and the fishing right off the sea wall, we barely went into town. The house itself is amazing with lots of space so no one felt crowded. The furnishings are all high quality and the house is beautifully decorated. The layout is perfect and maximizes the views of the river.
We stayed for a long weekend but will definitely stay longer next time.
Relaxing - the perfect vacation
This house is spectacular. Plenty of room for our three grown children. Nothing was overlooked. We are already planning the return for our 2018 summer getaway. Well done Todd!!
Great property with great amenities
This is really a great property in a great location. Everything is within a 10 minute drive. The house has everything you need. Being on the river is amazing, plus the screened in porch, pool, hot tub make this a small slice of paradise.
