Awesome time ! We loved it !

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Thad's condo. The view is incredible and the condo is exactly as the pictures show. Nicely decorated and clean ,which is hard to find in beach rentals. Thad was a wonderful host and emailed us attractions and activities as well as some great local restaurants. The only changes we would make next time is A) We would fly in order to have more time there, and next time (yes, we are absolutely planning a next time) B) we will have to book for 2 weeks rather than one

We highly recommend it!

Thad, until next time ,thanks for everything and for loaning us your beach condo for the week!

Kind Regards,

Bob and Julie K.

Baltimore, MD.

It was the perfect little get-away for my husband and me. The unit itself had everything we needed, and the resort staff were really friendly and helpful. The beach is beautiful and very clean with no crowding at all.

My wife and I stayed during the week at the Penthouse in Shell Island and we LOVED IT!! It was soo relaxing and comfortable. The ocean view was so beautiful, and just listening to the waves in the night was so relaxing. The bed in the penthouse was so comfortable as well that we slept like little babies. Everything inside was just exactly what we needed and very clean. Definitely will be staying again here. Highly recommend Mr. Johnson for his properties that he has at Shell Island!!
