Absolutely the best location around!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to say thank you enough to Wendy and Sarah. What an amazing experience it was to stay on this island. The homes are absolutely beautiful and very homey. We could not believe how quiet it was there and the attention to detail throughout the property is amazing. Especially walking at night along the pathways with twinkle lighted mason jars hanging in the trees that just made the experience magical. All of our guests loved all of the different things to do there and enjoyed kayaking and watching the seals play in the water. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you are looking for a place that has it all, this is definitely it! And a very special thank you to Wendy for all that you did for us. We will never forget our stay here and will be back next year!!!!

Very nice property and very well managed

  • 5 of 5

Wendy was extremely helpful and the property is perfect for a nice getaway from the city. Still close enough to get to where you want to be within an hour, but a very quite and peaceful place.

Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Sailfish house during a weekend teachers retreat. It was the perfect place to relax, have meetings, and enjoy the scenery around us. The home is set up beautifully with 4 master bedrooms a great dining table, kitchen, and living room. Each of the master bedrooms had fireplaces and large tv’s, too which was a nice, relaxing touch during our downtime. Wendy is the best!

We absolutely fell in love with the property and will return again. We will be reserving the home again in the next few days for the new year's holiday.

Wendy was incredible and it was so nice to have interaction with the owners. Enough cannot be said about Wendy and the property. We are looking forward to our return.

Thank you all.
