average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Great property.

  • 4 of 5

My stay at the Island Escape was very nice and private. I enjoyed having all the amenities like home. The location is close to everything: beaches, restaurants, night life, grocery stores included. The only downside to the triplex is the inside decor and furniture needs to be updated. The bed was uncomfortable and the futon was worse. I endure two cold nights during my stay and could not get the fireplace lit, but that’s my fault for not utilizing Ashley’s assistance. I’m sure it was a easy fix. Lol-overall it’s a great place and I would definitely recommend this unit to friends and family. Thank you for the rental.
