Just as described

  • 4 of 5

Super friendly host. Great location. Cute little house with comfortable beds. You will need to bring beach chairs if you want the reclining type. Found an umbrella but I was more for a patio table not your typical screw in to the sand type. The charcoal grill is very small like a table top size that could only cook 4 burgers at a time.

Quaint, clean and adorable cottage. Everything you need and nothing you don't.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay will be a memorable one. Location of cottage is close to everything. Only a few steps away to beach access and Rod & Reel Pier. Captain Ed is very accommodating, he is only a text away if needed. We would definitely return again.

Great little cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all I want to say how amazing Captain Ed is!! He made our vacation so much easier! Before we arrived he had sent us an email of all the great places to eat and of the best places to visit and they were all great! Also, he had the little cottage spotless! It was just like home! He even had sunscreen for us to use. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone!

Loved our time at AMI

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this rental. House is just as pictured, was very clean, and had everything we needed. So nice to have beach chairs, mats, cart, bikes, and coolers. The house was very comfortable with plenty of room. Beds slept great. Owner was very attentive to us both before we got there, and while there. Bikes were great to ride around the island - we didn't move the car several days. Lots of great restaurants close by. Incredible sunsets on the beach.. did not miss a one. We would love to go back again soon.

All amenities and conveniences are here in this spotlessly clean beach cottage.

  • 5 of 5

You really don't need to bring ANYTHING but your bathing suit and toothbrush! They have thought of it all for you - fishing rods, bicycles, beach necessities, coolers, crock pots, books, and cookware. Stop for groceries on your way onto the island and/or eat at some of the fabulous local restaurants, but be sure to stop at Poppo's Tacqueria, Eat Here, and the General Store for awesome eats. Thanks, Captain Ed, for yet another wonderful girls' weekend getaway! Can't wait to come back!!!
