"We were two of us with our 50-lb dog, and our 1-month stay was a delight for all three of us!
The house is small and cozy, just right for us. It might be a bit small for more than one couple or a small family of three. The fenced-in yard is spacious and extremely private, lots of running room for our dog, plus he got to chase rabbits and squirrels back there every morning. :-) We had fresh lemonade all month long from the trees out back (I don't think the oranges per the other reviews were ripe yet, or at least we thought we were picking lemons!). The other reviews already point out that the beds were very comfy, the kitchen and appliances were upgraded and very well done, great laundry and two very nice HD TV's. The outdoor patio (also fairly private) had a wonderful table-set with six chairs, great for relaxing, reading, meals, happy-hour and roomy enough that the three of us had a small yoga class on the deck many times (Gus can do downward dog really well!). We had no problems with the two a/c units, and typically only needed to run one-at-a-time to stay comfy, even though it was mid-to-high-eighties just about every day we were there. The bathrooms were definitely old-school 'retro' decor, but very clean and functional and reminded me of my house as a kid. :-)
Kyle made sure to take care of the things that some places might skimp on - for instance, the wi-fi here has blazing fast bandwidth, the cable TV had all the channels and even a couple pay-stations available, he provided a great variety of books to read for those rainy days, and a lot of the little-item consumables were already there when we arrived - the sort of little things you don't usually travel with. Also had laundry supplies and bathroom supplies, and the kitchen utensils and pots/pans were top-notch. He provided beach towels, nice portable beach chairs, a bunch of beach-toys, shark-teeth diggers, beach umbrella, coolers, etc etc. I could keep going... you get the idea.
Location - the best! Great neighbors, met several of them walking every morning with our dog - and we walked just about the whole island 2-3 miles every day. We also borrowed bikes for our stay, and enjoyed the bike path around the whole island. Walked to the dog beach, made tons of new friends there too. This town is over-the-top dog-friendly - including the outdoor restaurants and shopping too. Highly recommend the Blu Island Bistro for b-fast or lunch!
We highly recommend! A++!"
