Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as listed. Absolutely loved the pool & pool area. It was actually our Savior as the weather was less than desirable during the time we were there. It was cloudy, windier than windy, a little rainy, with a little mix of sun, definite sock, pant & coat weather (which unfortunately we didn't come prepared for) The house is situated close enough to the beach but far enough away where if there is a strong wind & there is sunshine you can still enjoy the pool area. I was a bit surprised to realize that the ferry ride is basically backing up, turning around & pulling in to the island ramp on the other side. If you decide to take your car across it is $55 r/trip. Just letting you know this as it is an added expense & depending on how many times you choose to do this, the expense can add up. You can also park your vehicle on the other side & walk on to the fairy but depending on your circumstance, that might not always be an option. We rented our golf cart from Hick's which was a smooth & convenient transaction. Bikes are provided, so if you or your family are able to ride bikes, skip the golf cart & ride bike as the island is friendly in that way. We enjoyed the kayaks. Also enjoyed sitting on the dock & watching the dolphins that come & go on occasion. As other posters have mentioned the property owner gets back to you right away. We didn't have any issues that needed addressing but assume those would have been handle as efficiently. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise. We will treasure our memories for years to come.

Beautiful and comfortable island home with great outdoor space.

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The back yard is the prize though. The fishing dock in back is great, and the pool and jacuzzi make you never want to leave. We even used the fire pit! Be sure to bring your fire wood, groceries, and fishing supplies as there is no where on the island to purchase these things. We rented a golf cart but really did not need it as we spent all of our time at the house...except when we walked to Sharkstooth Beach. The owner, Scott, truly wants his guests to be happy and is very responsive. We would definitely return one day!

Our family of four spent the week of Christmas at this beautiful house in a truly awesome location. The pictures of the house don’t do it justice. Having the private dock to fish off of and the beach just a hop skip and jump away was perfect. Best Christmas ever.
