We have been to Leslie's beach house nearly every year for the last 10 years. We absolutely love it! She goes out of her way to make everyone feel at home and this year even found us a fabulous babysitter so all the adults could go out for the evening. This house is such a relaxing place to go... the beach is quiet and pristine and yet the bustle of downtown and delicious restaurants is not far at all (15-20 minutes). I love that the house is fully stocked with kitchen equipment and even spices. It's also kid friendly and all kiddie equipment is there- makes for a hassle free vacation. I'm sure we will be back again next October!

Awesome for families!

We had a wonderful stay this week. Leslie was so accommodating. The house was perfect for our crowd...three couples, each with kids. We love the location, couldn't be any better. The lagoon is awesome & they have everything you could possibly need inside & out! Four huge bedrooms, each w/own bathroom. We'll be back!

We are here again for a return visit to the beautiful Moore house on fabulous Figure Eight Island. Our favorite vacation spot at our favorite house location. Could not be better situated on a gorgeous and peaceful lagoon, a block away from the beautiful ocean beaches. All the house amenities you could ask for...each bedroom with its private bath. Large living areas - great for family and/or friends gatherings or a quiet getaway for one or two.

A piece of paradise.

Wonderful place to relax and unwind!

Wonderful rental experience! Accurate listing. We had an amazing weekend. Great views of Figure 8 from each room of the house. Watch the sun rise in the morning from the front of the house and the sun set each evening off the back of the house. Beds were comfortable and bedrooms were spacious. We found the owner to very personable. Would definitely rent from again!

The kitchen and storage areas are well -equipped for all vacation needs.You are out of the way of the hustle and bustle of a city but only a short ride away from grocery and restaurants and stores. Have fun!

Beautiful beach home on a gorgeous private island.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fabulous vacation at this beautiful home on a perfect island. The owners thought of everything and we couldn't have asked for a better escape. The island is practically empty in the off season, so it is like having your own private island. The house sits right on the sound, with so many sea creatures to find. My 10 year old daughter and I even had a dolphin swim right up to us!!! It was an experience that neither one of us will ever forget.

The house is beautiful and homey. Each bedroom has its own private balcony with beautiful views. It really does feel like a home away from home. The owners have surf boards, bikes, boogie boards, strollers, and everything that you would love to not have to pack.

The beach is gorgeous. This was a "magical" island for us and we will definitely be back. We did not want to leave when our time was over.

We highly recommend staying at this beautiful home. It truly is the perfect escape!!
