Wonderful Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great Mini Vacation at the beach house. It was everything we needed. The house was great and the location was perfect. Even though it rained during part of the stay we still enjoyed it.

It was OK for what is was, but it wasn't all that.

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice. It fit all twelve of us nicely. It stormed much of the time we were here and the power kept going out. No flashlights and only two candles. There was about 10 feet of seaweed we had to cross before we could reach the water. All in all, the kids enjoyed themselves and I enjoyed relaxing on the deck.

Great 60th Birthday Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

I rented this house to celebrate my 60th birthday with close girlfriends. Everyone agreed that the house was a great house with a few minor dings. The layout was perfect for us and the location was fantastic. I had said it would be a perfect weekend even if I did nothing but sit on the deck and listen to the sound of the surf and the deck of this house is perfect for that - half is shaded and half is sunny. The house is located about 15-20 minutes down the Island so it's in a quieter area which is what we wanted - but it's still close enough to drive in to town to eat or visit the Strand.

We had read reviews so brought our own extra towels, paper towels, napkins, toilet paper and planned to have flip flops or other shoes to walk down to the beach. But it was early enough in the season we didn't see any burrs.

Minor dings - one burner on the stove didn't work and the stand alone ice maker had a bad smell, but other than notifying the owner, we didn't let those issues bother us.

Great Home for a Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We rented this lovely home for a week during the summer and because we enjoyed our stay so much, rented it again during the Christmas holidays. I love that it is right on the beach and that it is roomy, nicely designed with a great floor plan. The only small challenge we had was with the stickers in the grass around the house. We had to make sure to put our shoes on and carry the dog past it to the beach area. Other than that, it was great. We will return!
