"First and foremost, I want to thank the owner, Sherry, for her attentiveness. She is obviously as detailed oriented as I am, and didn't miss a thing in the helpful "booklet of tips" she sends you before your vacation week. We have been coming to HHI for over ten years and always rent something through VRBO. This home was perfect for my husband and I, and our young-adult children. The common areas are plentiful, yet everyone can retreat to their own space. The house is nicer than the photos show here. Beautiful new back deck, full-grown landscaping, and the new TV in the living room above the fireplace was perfect for watching the summer Olympic games together as we cooked in the fully stocked kitchen. There are also two patio sets with umbrellas, and they have a beach locker with chairs that Sherry graciously let us renters make use of. We were able to keep our rental bicycles and car in the garage, use the washer and dryer for our pool towels, and grill on the BBQ (although, I could not find BBQ utensils). Seriously, there is nothing you will feel you have a shortage of in this beautiful home (except maybe BBQ utensils, haha!). The only small "issue" we had was that the bed in the master bedroom is freakishly high. However, Sherry does give you fair warning of this anomaly in her booklet. The mattress came as high as my rib cage, and even at a fit 6' tall, my husband needed a step-stool. The sheets and mattress pad didn't fit and would slip off the corner. The media room is a cool addition to have for a rainy day (I would imagine younger children having a wonderful time in their own space), but we were lucky with the weather, and spent most all of our time outdoors. Having the pool off the beautiful deck is the best feature! The rental cost on this home is fair, as you are getting a lot. We want to thank Sherry for her graciousness. Don't hesitate... book this home!"
