"Gathered the family for the long 3 day Labor Day weekend... We needed a place that was "kid friendly". A place where we wouldn't have to worry if they put their feet up or spilled a soda on the floor (none of which happened anyway).. Although not fancy, this canal home came well equipped, is cozy and casual. The beds are comfortable, the place was clean and there was plenty of room for everyone (7 adults, 6 "tweens"). The kitchen had everything we needed (I did bring our ice crushing blender) and there was plenty of room to serve meals at the counter and still seat everyone between the dining area and the stools. We even baked up some chocolate cookies! The two separate TV areas (one up, one down) worked well for our group as the youngsters enjoyed their own space for board games and computer time. Everyone especially enjoyed fishing and swimming in the canal and there is even a crab trap to use! There is an underwater light so we fished well into the very late hours as well. We caught a few, but threw everything back for the next renters! We enjoyed our 11 ft. Boston Whaler which we were able to launch at the boat launch and tie up right in front of the house.. Motored over to the restaurant at the marina Friday night for a lovely dinner. Fresh bait, ice, beer and more were conveniently purchased there also.. We also enjoyed some beach time at Sea Isle's Gulf side private beach. This place has incredible views from the deck!! Sunsets in West Bay were spectacular and the mornings were serene and beautiful. The location attributed to clearer water and West Bay accessible which is exactly what we wanted. The owner was easy to communicate with and very patient with all my questions. He made the process easy and comfortable. We would go back and do this all over again. This property shows some wear, but it was comfortable, spacious, clean with comfy furniture & great A/C. Location superb!!"
