Priceless view

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying here in July. The apartment has lots of room and is very clean. Our dog was very happy with the treats, toy, and water bowl the owners left for her. The beach was beautiful and just a short walk away. But honestly the view from the back yard was breathtaking. I could have sat there all day and listened to the waves hit the rocks. The owners were very nice and provided us with everything we needed. We will definitely be going back.

Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful getaway and this little gem. We not only enjoyed the property which had everything you could need plus special little treats from the proprieties who could not be more helpful. The area was beautiful as well. This may be the only vacation spot where we can positively say that we will return.

Excellent Hospitality and Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the views justice and they are literally right off the porch!

Kim and her family made this a great vacation for my dog, Clancy and I. We walked the beach nearby, watched the sunrises and sunsets. The condo has EVERYTHING included and clearly a lot of time went into choosing the decor, appliances, towels, etc. It was like home away from home.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Janet and Clancy

Dream Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation this September in a long time and of course the best reason is our comfortable stay at Kimberly’s apartment/home. The apartment is right on the bay, located in a nice, clean and friendly residential neighborhood. When we arrived, we were greeted with fresh flowers and a fruit basket on the dining table. Kimberly even placed bottled water in the refrigerator, a huge tank of fresh water in the dining space, tons of ice cubes in the freezer and chocolates in the bedroom - which my kid really loved. The apartment was super clean and we never felt lack of anything during our entire stay. We cooked at home without any hassle as we were provided with a gas grill, oven, and a huge collection of spices and other cooking accessories. We enjoyed everyday of our stay, we saw sunrise on the bay from our living room window and the porch. We went to a clean and quiet private beach nearby which was a walking distance of 5 minutes from the house. Kimberly even provided us with lots of beach toys for our toddler, beach chairs, umbrella and towels. At night we sat in the porch or on the lawn, listened to the waves crashing on the rocks, and enjoyed star gazing….ooh I miss that so much now. Kimberly also gifted us a basket of home grown delicious tomatoes the evening before we left Hampton and she also returned the security deposit the very next day. Thank you so much Kimberly for making our stay so wonderful and memorable. It is a perfect vacation house with the nicest host and will highly recommend - and we are definitely going back again next year.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This property is a gem. Its secluded just enough for visitors to retreat from everyday hustle and bustle, while still being accessible to local attractions. I was delighted when I walked into the unit. The owner has gone beyond the usual to welcome her guests. There were treats for my dog, fresh flowers, candy, special soaps for my husband and I. The owner had anticipated one's every need. So, if you are accustomed to packing extra towels, beach toys and equipment, kitchen and grilling utensils with you on vacation, first call the owner because you will find that she's already given your needs a lot of thought. The unit is spotless. I would definitely recommend the unit to a friend, in fact, I already have done so.
