Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5
Our family loves Empire, and we love to come every summer for a week. We stayed at this home, and it is by far the nicest placed we have stayed at in Empire. First of all it is a home! Lots of room to spread out. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, balconies that overlook the beautifully landscaped yard. The home was immaculate. We like to cook, and the kitchen had everything and more that we needed. We used the barbecue and sat outside every evening to eat. We loved the covered sunroom and napped in the hammock! We walked to the beach everyday! The owners were so easy to work with, and provided great information and directions for the home. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back for sure!

First off the pictures do not do this place justice. The living room has a unique color scheme or a bit dated but the everything else is beautiful. Everything was extremely clean and well stocked. They provide more supplies than your average rental. It's on the corner so it's quite and has a enough room for our kids to run and play when we just hanging at the house. Can't say enough about this place. One of the first vacations where we weren't itching to get home because we had space, comfort and everything we needed.
