Best House We've Rented

  • 5 of 5

This was the most pleasant rental experience we've had, and the house was amazing! The property is everything we'd hoped for and more. It was beautiful, wheelchair accessible, and the owners and property manager are so thoughtful and pay attention to every little detail. It was outstanding and it was 100% perfect, not one complaint!! Sunny is great to work with if you ever stay there. She definitely goes above and beyond and adds such a nice human, personal touch. We hope to return!

Beautiful home with great views. Expansive. Felt like we were in a spa.

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 people staying here. This is a great property with excellent ambience. Expansive spaces. Quiet. Good porch to watch the rain. Unfortunately, it was cloudy every night so we couldn't see the stars through the retractable roof. Ping pong table and pool table were nice to have in the garage. We will be back.
