Fantastic Time in a Fantastic House!!

The House was exactly as described, if not even better. The house was absolutely beautiful. Everything was brand new and well taken care of. The views of the marsh are breathtaking and we loved taking daily walks out onto the community dock.
There were eight adults in our group and there was plenty of space for everyone and we never felt crowded. The living room is spacious with a large comfortable couch, loveseat, and lounge chair with ottoman all surrounding a gas fireplace and a large flatscreen tv. The kitchen table was great, easily seating all 8 of us. The kitchen had all brand new appliances and a breakfast bar with plenty of counter space. The master bedroom, located off the main living area on the second floor, was huge and had a fantastic king bed and a huge master bath. The other three bedrooms were downstairs and were also very roomy. One of the major bonuses to this house is that each bedroom has its own private bath, and there is also a half bath off the main living area. Another nice feature is that this house has a laundry room, so we didn't have to pack as heavy, we could just do a small load of laundry midweek and we were fine (this makes the ferry trip even easier).
The location of this house was also amazing. The outside seating off of the main living area provided great views of the marsh and the beaches are only a short golf cart ride away. The maritime market is the main grocery store on the island and is also just a 5 minute cart ride away. (note to renters: we highly suggest shopping at the Walmart in Southport for your major grocery items, the market can be quite expensive). The marina is on the other side of the island, but we always enjoyed taking a ride to see Old Baldy and grab a bite to eat at Eb and Flo's.
The house also came with a membership to the Shoals Club, which in itself is worth its weight in gold. That membership gives you access to the private restaurants, pools and the beach. What is even nicer is that the Shaols Club gives you towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas for use at the beach, which makes packing for the beach a breeze.
We had a great stay here, and would highly recommend this house to anyone who is looking to have a relaxing vacation in a beautiful home.
