The home and the location were both fantastic! Our family vacation included ages ranging from 3 to 83 and it suited everyone. The elevator was a huge asset for my aging parents. The home is located right on the beach with a fabulous view from the spacious decks and through the large picture windows. The beach was clean and peaceful. We all loved the area and hope to return someday. It couldn't have been more perfect.

PERFECT BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for a weekend celebrating my 40th birthday with friends and family, most of whom came in from other states. Everyone agreed it was fantastic! The house is well-appointed and beach-y without being kitschy, as evidenced by the photos. The open living/dining/kitchen area makes it great for chatting and visiting, and the large coffee table was perfect for our family board game adventures. The deck is perfect for enjoying the gorgeous beach.

The BBQ grill was great, and we took advantage of both the DVD player and cable tv, and even did a bit of baking. I will say that the coffee maker appears to be stained (when we arrived it had not been emptied or cleaned, and even after cleaning it out our coffee had a funny taste), so you might consider bringing your own if this is important.

We enjoyed strolling up & down the beach, and found this time of year to be the perfect time to visit--not too crowded yet, great weather, and all the restaurants/shops seem to be open for the season. We also had fun walking through Holly Shelter game land looking for wildlife, and managed to find some cool pitcher plants in flower.

I have already recommended this property to several people and everyone who stayed there with me was impressed with this find. I'm keeping it on my list for future reference. Thanks to Shannon for providing such a great beach house!

WONDERFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The beach is quiet this time of year which made the trip wonderfully relaxing. To sit on the deck and watch the waves was heavenly. Gator Shores is a very comfortable beach house. The kitchen and living space on the top floor is the perfect set up for enjoying the ocean views. Loved the master bedroom and bath. Plenty of space. TVs in each bedroom let everyone pick their own entertainment. And an elevator was great for unpacking, hauling groceries or old knees. We also found the restaurants in this area to be excellent. And enjoyed visiting Wilmington.

BEACH CHRISTMAS

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent the Christmas week here and we all had an outstanding time, everyone from my 1 year old son to my 82 year old grandmother. This is hands down the best beach house we have ever rented. The location is convenient, the beach is beautiful, and the house and its furnishings are all well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of pots, pans, and serving dishes for our large holiday meals. This place is a steal at this price and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. Don't overlook this as a winter getaway either. We enjoyed multiple days with temperatures in the 70s and even on the colder days there is significantly less wind on this central part of the island than there is on the north or south end.

EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
I don't know what else to say but everything was EXCELLENT!!!!! I always start working on our vacation plans in February and when I found this house I thought this is the coolest house and for the price it was outstanding. After we arrived & had settled in we sat on the deck and my husband leaned over and said "Deb you did GOOD" !!!!! This by far was the best vacation. I stayed at the beach house most of the time and sat out on the beach and read books. My husband went golfing 3 times. We ate at Gallaghers Sport Bar. Excellent food. IGA grocery store is walking distance from the house. Everyone in town was wonderful. The house was wonderful. As the vacation was nearing to the end there were a couple of things we figured out about the house like the heat for the downstairs but you know that was a minor thing & we figured it out. Shannon was wonderful to work with. Oh the curtain in the master bedroom yes it is really not much but I had read the reviews from previous tenants and I brought an extra blanket and clipped it up over the curtain. Worked that out too. There were things we brought & really we didn't need to. But this was our first time at renting a beach house and I am already planning for next year. My husband really wants to come back. So to that end to all the future renters this is your best choice. BEAUTIFUL HOME AND THE PRICE IS PERFECT!!! oh there is an elevator. It was wonderful too!

FIVE STAR RENTAL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a family vacation at Gator Shores! We enjoyed our trip and look forward to staying here again next year! The elevator was a life savor for my elderly parents!! The home was clean, the furniture was top of the line and kitchen was well stocked. The views were spectacular from both first and second floor! The owners were friendly and great to work with! We had to contact Shannon because I accidentally locked the elevator on the ground floor! She was very understanding and contacted a locksmith who showed up promply.
If you are searching for a vacation property...... look no more, this is the one!
