This is a cute place with good proximity to the beach. It has lots of extras for the kids, we had a lot of fun with the bird kite and boogie boards. The owner was very easy to work with, and promptly returned our deposit. The only things that needed addressed were the leaky basement roof, that leaked on the bed of the people staying downstairs. Also, the pans are very hard to cook with. (We had to buy a skillet that didn't stick) Also, the coffee pot only drained if you propped a knife over the pot. (I burned myself). Other than that, We enjoyed the stay.

Owner's Response: Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

The leaky ceiling, well we have plumbers in to address that, sorry about that. It's from the shower upstairs. The pots and pans, never had a complaint. We had non-stick cookware and it was all destroyed by guests so we went with stainless cookware. The coffee pot came right on for me when I tried it, so not sure what the problem was. All concerns taken care of and addressed. But as always thank you for telling me so we could repair and address problems.

The house was so beautiful and very charming and felt like a home away from home from the very beginning. It was the best vacation we have ever had. The gentlemen we rented from was so sweet helpful and was very sweet and very helpful. They made it the best vacation ever with knowledge and things to do on the island. Already looking forward to going back next year. It was the best vacation home ever.

The house was perfect we had the entire family together, there was plenty of room for togetherness and also for privacy. It is very centrally located easy access to beach and island. Thank you Richard for your kindness and consideration, enjoyed your caring self (checking on us about tornado in our hometown). I would recommend this house and I have to many people. We had a wonderful healing vacation in a beautiful home that met all of our needs. The back deck was heaven on earth! We grilled a couple times and morning coffee was so relaxing. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. Thank you for allowing us to bring our dog Lucy. thank you Richard for sharing your home with others so they may experience the island.
