"We had the most enjoyable vacation at this house. Our girls are ages 6 and 3 and this house was ideal for our family in so many ways. We knew the location would be great for the beach and other activities in walking distance, and the house looked very nice as listed, but we had no idea how many unique extras Cathy had put in. We have been renting on the island for years and this is by far the most welcoming, well kept-up, beautifully decorated, & thoughtful home we’ve been in. There were so many things we have rarely come across in a rental that made this home a real stand-out. All the furniture & linens were soft & cozy. The oversize reading chair in the den and the porch couch were especially inviting, and the king sized bed was great for parents with kids still climbing into their bed in the middle of the night. The closets had ample hangers, over-the-door hooks, and extra baskets for storage. The kitchen was stocked with all the basic gear needed to cook regularly, including bonus surprises like a Brita water filter, tea kettle & expresso maker, paper goods & plastic wear, and more nifty storage baskets. The house was also well equipped with entertainment for rainy days or down-time. There was an extra TV on the porch (very useful for parents who don’t always want to watch Nick Jr), a whole-home stereo system, DVDs, and games, all complete with very detailed how-to instructions. There was a house set of beach badges, which used to be common years ago but has become a rarity, and even more wonderful was the garage stocked with beach chairs and other beach fun gear. This was literally the most home-away-from-home vacation we’ve had, and one we hope to repeat in the coming years."
