Guestbook comments from the owner
Our first time at Thyme after Thyme. The 21 of us came from a small town in MS - Crystal Springs - ages 70, 68, 43, 40, 39, 36 (2), 35 (2), 30, 10, 9, 8, 6 (2), 5, 4, 3, 2, 1(2). We enjoyed both sunrises and sunsets from the great balconies.....great places for seeing God's handiwork. The kids "lived" in the pool (at least when they were not in the ocean!) We loved being able to walk to the town for ice cream. Our week was busy and oh so much fun. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.....everyone is sad to leave.

GREAT FAMILY REUNION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect house for our family reunion. There were 17 of us, 7 grandchildren (20 somethings) spouses, three great grandchildren, ages 2,3 and 4. The 2 kitchens came in handy when the babies woke-up earlier than everyone else, they could have breakfast without waking the entire household. Everyone took advantage of the bikes, both for all the bike trails and to get to Seaside and Water Color. We loved all the terraces. Everyone got to have a bed. We used the pool every day and also went to the beach. The babies loved the small pool too. The house was very clean and had all the advertised amenities. We had to call for maintenance and someone arrived in a few hours,even on a holiday weekend. Everyone said they would like to come back. I would definitly recommend this house to others.
