Amazing beach house on best part of the island!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous beach house with everything you could ever imagine needing right at your fingertips! Golf cart, bikes, beach chairs and umbrella etc all waiting for you! The house is absolutely beautiful with all the extras you could think of. Perfect location with short walk to the beach, great restaurants and shops. This area has no high rise hotels, is very laid back and is a perfect place to unwind. We loved staying here and hope we will again! Thank you Kelly for sharing your piece of paradise!

Unbelievable Views!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We couldn't get over the expansive views, both inside and out. We were scheduled to arrive a week and a half after Hurricane Irma. I called Kelly to be sure that the house was okay and we should still come down. She said that they were lucky and only the glass deck railings were damaged. She had already made arrangements to have them replaced. The railings are now steel with thin horizontal wires. We thought they were awesome and the views were incredible. We really liked being on the north quiet end of the island.

The house was perfect for the two of us. The bed was comfortable. The A/C worked great (we have had blown A/C units at VRBOs in the past several times, so we really appreciated this). The whole house was very clean.

We had one small problem when we locked a door on the first floor and there wasn't a key to unlock it. I called Kelly and she had a locksmith out within 30 minutes.

We enjoyed dinner at the Sandbar and the Waterfront restaurants. We also did some inshore fishing one day through Keyes marina.

We really enjoyed our vacation and definitely would love to stay Halcyon House again!

Book this house NOW

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Halcyon House from 8/25/17-8/30/17 after a recommendation from a friend who's stayed here before. From the beginning, Kelly was responsive, detail oriented and always willing to answer questions. At one point, I texted her from the grocery store ask if we should get K-Cups or coffee grounds based on the coffee pot at the house (grounds) and she responded within minutes. So GREAT!

My husband and our couple friends were blown away by the beauty of the Halcyon House. The house and space is more beautiful in person than the pictures depict. There are so many things provided by Kelly at the house that it really made our stay quite easy. Ex: Golf cart, coolers, beach toys, towels, umbrellas, etc.

A few things I would note to people staying in the future:

1) The linens (towels, sheets, blankets and comforters) are all very comfortable. We felt the pillows could be a bit better so if you LOVE your pillow from home, bring it! Not a terrible thing at all but just a good heads up if you're staying a week and pillows are your thing.

2) The walk from the house to the beach is a bit far but not terrible. We made 1-2 trips back to the house during the day to refill ice, nosh, drinks, etc but if we'd brought our infant son, I'm not sure he'd be able to make it long on the hot beach without having to go back once in a awhile to cool off. Again, not terrible but just something to be aware of. There are plenty of coolers, travel mugs, tupperware, etc to make it so that you could pack it all in one shot and never come back.

3) May - October is turtle mating season and we were not aware of that prior to our arrival. If you're traveling to the Halcyon House during those months, there are things you need to do at night with the blinds so the turtles aren't confused. It's actually kind of cool but we felt bad knowing that we left the blinds up when we should've closed them.

4) Restaurants: Go to The Doctor's Office, The Waterfront and the Donut Experiment. We were underwhelmed by Feast and Rod N Reel - although - Rod and Reel is cool because it's right on the water! Also, many places don't have liquor licenses so you're options are beer and wine.

Overall, we had an excellent time at the Halcyon House and will definitely be back. It's too beautiful of a property in too beautiful of a location not to go back to. Kelly makes the process so easy and for that -- we're beyond impressed!

Stunning house with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Just enjoyed 10 very relaxing days at Halcyon House. The house is just as it looks on the pictures but the view and proximity to the beach are even better than portrayed. Kelly was helpful with any queries we had and the house has everything you need to totally chill out. We loved AMI last time we visited 5 years ago but have totally fallen in love with it all over again. I'm already missing the beautiful beach, warm sea and stunning sunsets.
