Adorable and right on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage was super cute and not too fussy. The basics are all covered, the owners were easy to work with. It was clean and tidy. Perfect getaway.

Considering the other properties available for rent the overall reaction was that things were rustic

  • 3 of 5

The absence of amenities such as restaurants and food retailers is an inconvenience but the property rented was well appointed and comfortable. No wine glasses was surprising, however. The lack of transparency regarding the cost of extras--water taxi, parking, golf carts, trash removal , etc.--was problematic.

Looking forward to next year!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, due to the red tide and Hurricane Matthew, we had to postpone our trip. The owner was nice enough to allow us to choose another week. Thanks!

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay. We saw Manta Rays, Manatees, lots of dolphins right in front of our deck! We caught snook from the deck. The kids enjoyed looking for shells, snorkeling, and swimming. We all came back with a tan. Be aware of the sand fleas, though. They ate my husband and oldest daughter up!

My favorite place on earth

  • 5 of 5

This house is my favorite spot on the island as well as my favorite place on earth! I have caught snook from the balcony and spent hours in the shade under the house swinging in my hammock just above the crashing waves. No other house on the island offers such up close and personal views of sunrises and sunsets as it's front end sits in the tide. I have taken breathtaking pictures and stargazed from the balcony and created unforgettable memories inside and out with my friends and family that will last a lifetime. This home offers an experience I think everyone ought to have at least once in their life.
