Relaxing home on the Marsh
Comfortable well taken care of home with a beautiful view of the low country marsh. My family and friends had a wonderful relaxing weekend. The kids felt like they were in a tree house.
We stayed here for three nights and were very comfortable. It is such an interesting ecosystem to explore or just great to enjoy your coffee on the porch in the morning!
Beautiful home and lot on the marsh! We’ll be going back soon!!
Absolute gem on the gorgeous Georgia marsh.
We could not believe how secluded this home was. There is tons of space in the house, and the back porch overlooking the marsh couldn't have been more perfect. We actually were able to see a Fourth of July fireworks celebration across the March while we sat with our family on the porch, finishing dinner. The house was even better than described, and the landscaping/yard was beautiful. I can completely see why this property is rented for wedding parties and wedding pictures.
We took two day trips to Sapelo Island which was an absolute blast. Only about a 30 minute drive to take the ferry over.
We also could not believe how easy to check in and check out process was. This made things so much less stressful than other vacations where there were tons of things to worry about before even getting there and especially when leaving. It allowed us to make the most of our time, and for that we are very grateful to the hosts.
Our only suggestions might be to either list a description of what is provided in the kitchen or add a couple of more items for every day kitchen use. Examples might be Tupperware containers, wine opener, some more baking Dishes, etc. trash bags, etc. Or maybe just a note about what starter things are there, like toilet paper or dish detergent and things like that.
Our vacation was relaxing and wonderful. Thank you, again, to the hosts, and we hope to rent again in the future.
