Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a few days, loved it and plan to stay again! Clean, comfortable, beautiful - love the scrub from the extended lot and the ability to just let the kids run around and be kids without having to helicopter. Only suggestion would be the pots and pans are a bit worn and no big pans - we love to cook. Other than that, it was great!

Incredibly Private, Peaceful Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We and our friends had the most amazing stay here! The house is spacious and beautifully furnished, and it has the most amazing views! We spent our days on the private beach, with its white sugar sand - so beautiful and relaxing!

Simply Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and private beach. Everything you need to enjoy a day on the beach is already provided. House was spacious and clean throughout. Plenty of room for our two kids and their grandparents to sit around and enjoy the views of the bay. We will definitely come back in the future.

What a wonderful week we had at "The Coastal Retreat". Very beautiful home, that was stocked with everything you could possibly need. The girls loved spending time on the very private beach, while the guys enjoyed taking the kayaks out every evening fishing. Very relaxing peaceful vacation rental. We will definitely be back!!
