It has become a tradition for our extended family to take a trip around Christmas time. Our 2018 trip was our sixth year of this tradition but the ONLY year we have been so happy that we wanted to return to the exact same house. Not only were we impressed with the beauty of Hutchinson Island, we were also impressed with the hospitality and quality of the house we stayed in. When we arrived, gift baskets welcomed us and new games and movies were there for us to enjoy. The house was extremely child-friendly and even had complimentary diapers and sunscreen, high chairs and pack and plays, baby monitors and even safety gates for the stairs. There were two hot tubs, a bigger one for the whole family to enjoy, and a smaller one that overlooked the ocean. There were enough bedrooms for our large extended family. On top of all the gifts and luxuries, there was a private beach area across the street with paddleboards, kayaks, a grill, and a fire pit where many s'mores were made. And the roasting sticks for s'mores were even included. Also we caught enough fish from the fishing dock for a couple meals! The name of the house was well fitting (Art on the Beach) because there was a large art room that led to even more art space outside! New paints, shells, canvases and stickers were just some of the many things provided. We didn't even have to buy souvenirs because we made them at our house! I think I can speak for everyone when I say that I was very impressed with this house. As a 13 year old, this was a vacation dream come true. However I wasn't the only one in vacation heaven. My parents and aunts and uncles delighted over the fancy coffee machine, the included slippers and bathrobes, enough towels to not have to ever do laundry, all toiletries and bathroom supplies included, and paper products and spices in the cabinets. Another pleasant surprise was that the garage was stocked with water shoes, life jackets, snorkels, sand toys, beach chairs, and even outdoor beach games. We kids were so well entertained that the parents and grandparents got to relax in the provided hammock on the beach as much as they wanted! We rebooked this place for next year the day we left.

Very special location. Great layout for the house. Very spacious in the main area. House was clean and stocked with various helpful items. Some things are a bit dated in the house, but that did not bother us. We would rent again.
