I chose this house because the reviews were consistently strong. Each reviewer raved about the place, and yet when we arrived, I was still pleasantly surprised. The home is immaculate and the décor beautifully coastal. We felt at home immediately. Windows from floor to ceiling in the living room allow for 24 hour viewing of the ever-changing sea and sky. We spent nearly all of our time on the screened porch or on the lower seaside deck. Our plan was to have our son's wedding on the beach, but when we saw the gorgeous landscaping and stone walkway, we knew we had to hold the ceremony right there. It was perfect. Enjoy the quaint foodie joint, Becky Jack's Snack Shack and be sure to make at least one trip to Hudson to Whitney's Fish Market and get some fresh locally caught fish; the grill at the Sandcastle Beach House appeared to be brand new. For a great day trip, we recommend Honeymoon Island for some fantastic photo opportunities and an aquamarine sea. If you are cyclists, don't count on riding on Pine Island. We did a 6 mile trek and found the narrow roads and impatient locals do not support bicycle traffic. However, do not let this small detail keep you from going to this wonderful home; you will not be disappointed.
