Excellent getaway - great town, great boating
Had a great time and this is a wonderful place! Highly recommend.
- The town is extremely cool!
- The location is perfect for boating. The Old Fish House marina worked out great as a place to launch And their sand fire shrimp is outstanding!
- The house is beautiful. The appliances, furniture, cabinetry, beds and Art are all very well done.
- The deck and dock were wonderful. The fish cleaning station was perfect (fishing for trout right near the house was excellent).The gas grill was great to cook out.
- We LOVED the garden!!!! Really cool.
Feels like home!!!!
This house is fantastic! The wood floors, the kitchen, the bathroom are fabulous! The touches that have been into this house are outstanding. We felt like we were home the moment we walked in. The outside space is so relaxing. We took the bicycles all around town and hit all the shops and restaurants. You will not want to leave this beautiful house but try and get out to enjoy the town!!!!
Fantastic Time, Lovely Home!!
This is a stunning home, we fell in love with it as soon as we drove in and walked through the garden and through the front door. The pictures and description of the home are accurate. The bathrooms are top notch with plenty of room for storage along with the kitchen.. I am very particular about my bed & bedding and loved the comfortable bed. Everything was so tidy and so clean. Great place to walk, very centrally located to all the shops and restaurants and the evenings are quite in that location. Communication with Nancy was professional, efficient, very friendly and prompt. This house is amazing and kept in perfect condition. Bravo and thank you to the owners for sharing this special place.
PERFECT ISLAND VACATION
This house could not have been more perfect for us. Everything in the house was in excellent condition and YES the previous reviews are accurate, it's better than pictured. The owners take great pride in their home & garden; and the house is very clean and well kept. All the little details and touches did not go unnoticed and it felt like home away from home.
I must say, the location is unbeatable! We walked or used the guest bikes to all the island restaurants and shops, we also enjoyed kayaking and lots of fishing with our rental boat which we docked at the house. We found ourselves quite entertained with the variety of beautiful birds observed from the house's dock, it's a total 'Audubon Experience'.
Thank you again Nancy for making the process so easy, being so accommodating and welcoming us to your lovely house, a true representation of island life. We're already planning our next visit.
A Phenomenal Home in an Unbeatable Location!!
We were so impressed with this gorgeous home from the moment we arrived. First off, we were delighted to see the property not only matched the pictures on the website it was even better. The home was impeccably clean, right down to the large windows overlooking the waterfront. Absolutely stunning property. Our days were filled with sightseeing, boating, fishing. Everything was close and convenient. Some days we just relaxed and fished from the dock. Tropical birds of all kinds visit the properties waterfront, many roseate spoonbills and we were amazed when we saw eagles. The owners could not have been nicer! We had everything we needed! Just come and be ready to get relaxed and lose track of the days! .Without hesitation we can say this is a rental we absolutely loved.
A Heavenly Getaway
My daughter & I thoroughly enjoyed our week at this island house. This home was so clean and comfortable, we loved the furnishings, decor and the beds were great, as well as in the perfect location for exploring the area. This private house is surrounded by a fence and topped off with beautiful trees, foliage, & a gorgeous display of orchids. Every morning we sat on the dock with a cup of coffee & watched the dolphins chasing after their meal, wow, we saw lot's of dolphins. We walked to all the restaurants and shops on the island and always ended our days at the ice cream shop. It's so nice to find a true home away from home. It was a wonderful getaway, for our mother-daughter time together. We have reserved next yrs. visit. Many thanks for your kindness & special place.
