"This was the first blended family vacation we have taken. Our children range from 12 years to 27 years old plus an eight month old. We had plenty of space for everyone. The Secret Retreat II was much more than described on this website. Cooking in the kitchen was a breeze. Everything that we could possibly have needed was there. The new gas grill was super nice as well. We enjoyed playing card games as well as board games. For the first time in what seems like forever, no one was on their electronic devices. We had quality family time!! The outside porch area was awesome. The rocking chairs as well as the round table that sat four was a great place to conversate and enjoy each other's company. We did go to the beach several times, but was still a little too cool to get in the water for very long, but we did enjoy listening to the ocean waves and watching the kids play. As the mom, I found it super convenient to have the washer and dryer there. No one went home with dirty clothes. I was even able to make sure all of the towels/linens were washed and dried for the next family. We had plenty of towels, wash clothes and linen for our entire stay. We lacked nothing. Anne was awesome. We checked in after dark on a Friday night. Wine was chilled for us when we arrived which was so nice!!! I simply asked about a place to purchase beer and ice.............before I knew it, she was back with both. I told her she went above and beyond what we ever expected. She and Michael are awesome to work with. We have plans to return around Christmas and the kids definitely want to come back for Spring Break 2017. I could go on and on about Secret Retreat, but I think you have to visit yourself to see just how wonderful, quiet and relaxing it is!! Oh, and did I mention, the master bathroom shower ROCKS!!! It is huge, plenty of room and really nice rain shower!!"
