  • wonderful vacation!

    "We had a wonderful stay here and cannot wait to return. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. It was perfect for my special needs child who is uncomfortable in busy environments, he keeps requesting to go back. I would definitely recommend."

  • Nice, clean, easy beach access

    "The Pros: This place was very clean, and very comfortable for my family of five. The beds were all comfortable, the kitchen is fairly well stocked, and is also roomy. The dining room sat 8 people one night, which was wonderful! The beach access is very easy to walk to, although there isn't a ramp nearby and we witnessed a lot of families with rolling carts struggling with this. The porch is wonderful! The table and chairs are perfect, and you can clearly see the ocean from one side of the porch. The cons: Two of the three bedrooms are on the side of the main road, and that road gets a surprising amount of traffic and nearly all night, with a lot of loud engines! The Trailer Bar (literally a trailer bar) across the street has live music every night of the week; while they do stop around 10:45, it was annoying. If you're in the living room, you can't hear it, but if you want to sit on the porch, or hang out in a bedroom it's not relaxing. There is also public beach parking across from the condos which adds to the traffic, and makes this area of the beach more crowded. (There is also a public park, for kids, across the street, but that didn't bother us at all.) If none of the cons will bother you, then I would recommend this place because the pros are really great. I appreciate the owners renting this out because our family did have a really nice time. Thank you."

  • HERE WE GO AGAIN -11 YEARS IN A ROW

    "I keep thinking I should do this, so here goes. This is the eleventh year we have rented Slowdance. We will be there on May 14 this year and back again in September. Yes we rent it twice a year spring and fall. That should be enough for any "Doubting Thomas" If it wasn't the best vacation spot, with the best property, that I have found I wouldn't keep going back. We tried the Outer Banks and were not impressed. We have been to Jekyll Island in Georgia and it was OK, but driving from PA was a task and being oceanfront is not really oceanfront - there was always a walk. Our children are grown, but they have both been with us at Slowdance, and now I have to make my arrangements around their schedules - they have threatened to cut me out of their wills. Enough of our history. We have never been disappointed. The property was always clean and well maintained - not like many others. The pictures are true - what you see is what you get. We have had a few instances where work had to be done - one year the upstairs air went out -but the owner had someone on it the next day. It was a major repair as the entire unit had to be replaced and the job was completed while we were still there. That was an expensive fix and it was done promptly with no interruption to our vacation. Last September we were there during the storm. It got pretty rough - the entire set of steps to the beach was washed away. The storm was bad enough it took down a house toward the southern end of the island.. When I called the owner and told her she offered us another property if we didn't feel safe staying there, but we were comfortable with the house and stayed. The steps were repaired before we left, which was pretty impressive considering the damage done to all the properties on the island. The owner is a terrific lady. . She is most accommodating and will work with you to make your stay as pleasurable as possible."

  • Wonderful, Memorable Beach Vacation!

    "We arrived at the Pelican Palace and were pleased from the first view! It is charming on the outside and beautifully clean and decorated on the inside. We found everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals (the dishwasher was even bigger than ours at home!) and a very organized pantry with laundry and extras. The views were absolutely to-die-for and we enjoyed being so close to the beach that our kids could run in and out and we could see and hear them. It was fun going to eat at Max's Pizza, Island Delight, & the Fractured Prune for hot, fresh donuts in the mornings. Our photographer daughter got some breath-taking shots of sunsets over the sound (within walking distance), too! There were little touches like great books to read (including children's books in the kid's rooms), a kayak!, boogie boards, sand toys, puzzles and games too. Everyone in our family - from the adults to all kids (ages 18, 16, 12, 9 & 7) enjoyed the trip and the house immensely! Thanks so much for letting us stay in your little piece of paradise :)"
