"First of all, this is not a cottage that I grew up going to by any means. This is a beautiful home at the beach.
Beach access: The location is just a football field length away from the very quiet end of island regular beach and 4x4 beach. The entire family and guests had a great time riding the very strong current going in and out of the waterway. Everyone also enjoyed walking way out during low tide. Walking up and down the 4x4 beach was lots of fun too, lots of friendly locals fishing and having fun. There was regular traffic up and down the street but didn't run into anyone being unruly or unsafe or anything less than courteous with the foot traffic around. The other public beach access points were just a small walk or drive away. Boys were always searching for the big waves.
The house: More like a home away from home. House was very clean on arrival. Even smelled clean. The air conditioning was set perfectly on arrival which felt great with the constant mid 90's our whole trip. The house is very spacious and open, and comfortable. The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Shiny floors, clean rugs, and clean functional furniture. Television was available everywhere, but TV time wasn't necessary very often. In the kitchen, everything you could need including dishes, glassware, silverware, and more pots and pans than you could need. Also all the appliances needed (kids loved the ice maker fridge...we don't have one). The decks were great to chill on and watch the sunrise every morning. The sunsets across the waterway could be viewed just out the front door. Was also a great spot to watch and hear the almost daily thunderstorms. Great location for that.
The owners: Jeff and Patty responded very quickly to any phone call or email we sent. Never had the feeling we were bothering them. We didn't run into any real issues there so problem resolution can't be reviewed, but with the interactions we did have I know it wouldn't have been handled quickly. Jeff also emailed us lots of emails with local information and trip tips. Very presonal service that you dont get with a rental company.
We look forward to having the chance to rent their home again. We had a great time. Thank you Jeff and Patty for providing such a great place to rent."
