We stayed on this property with a total of 8 adults and 4 children from 9/3/11 - 9/10/11. The house had two very nice lounge areas so that you did not feel crowded among all the guests staying. We enjoyed the back patio area as it was tile and covered, which was very nice to sit and watch the morning rain for the first half of our trip. The distance to the beach was very convenient as it was right across the street. My family unit stayed in the cottage house while the other family members stayed in the house itself; we were very pleased with the cottage house. Unfortunately, I will have to agree somewhat with another review posted for this home. It is on the market for sale and therefore seems that the property is "bare bones" and uncared for in some areas. There is a lack of some dishes and silverware (especially) to accommodate all the guests we had. When we arrived on the property there were only 7 beach towels and we were told that the satellite company carried a network so that we could view a particular football game only to find out that wasn't the case upon our arrival. Also, several items did not work such as the fridge, which did not close properly and a piece was broken at the bottom. The DVD player in the carriage house did not work as well. Finally, the biggest problem we had was the cockroaches. We have visited HHI several times in the past and are "prepared" for a tropical vacation but we've never seen this many roaches in other houses. We found them in the house at night and worst of all, they got into the clothes of my sister-in-law's family and they found dead ones in their dryer at home after doing laundry!! It appears the house needs better best control!!!
This was by far the best family vacation we have taken. There were 14 of us and there was never a dull moment between the pool, beach, deep sea fishing, canoeing & kayaking in the lagoon, biking on the incredible bike paths, there was never a dull moment. The vacation home was loved by all. It is top shelf! Had a little problem with the grill, which was rusted out on the bottom, but it was quickly replaced by the service. We did not feel crowded at all. Tons of space. The setting is very private. Lush landscape with a deer seen from time to time. We will definitely be visiting 77 Mooring Buoy again in the future!
