About Carrie Darby

We are from Columbus, OH. We purchased our home in May 2014 because our immediate family already lived on the island. Basically, we had been crashing at their homes way too often, and it was time we bought our own place, hence our duplex. We live in side A, and rent side B (1325SF, 3bed, 2bath w/ exclusive use of the pool). We are very laid back, and will not intrude on your vacation, but are here if you need us.

Carrie Darby purchased this house in 2014

2/17-2/23 2018 great time!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our 2 families. Kids loved their bedroom and the pool. Was very clean, roomy and had everything we needed. Lots of towels, beach chairs and pool floats. The beach was a short walk, restaurants and shops in walking distance too. Would definitely recommend and looking forward to staying there again.

There was plenty of room for the 10 people we had! The dogs had their own area to play in. Carrie is quick to respond when you text her. We loved our vacation! Hope to be back next year!

Perfect for our 2 families !

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this house !

First, it was CLEAN!

Other favorites and things we appreciated:

- POOL: kids and adults used it every day. It was big and clean. Fun pool toys for all ages.

- BEACH: 2 blocks or about 5-8 minute walk. Have to cross a busy street, but usually cars would stop for our crew. We brought a beach wagon from home which made it super easy to haul our stuff. You can rent one locally if you are flying.

-HOUSE: comfortable beds, plenty of pillows and extra blankets. We fit 6 kids into the bunk room. House was stocked with pretty much everything ! The kids loved the wii sports - great way to take a break from the sun.

Would stay again here if we come back !
