The magnificent sunsets over the bay yet close to the beach and room for my horses below to take them swimming in the ocean. Great for fishing and nothing is too far away on the island

This cozy rental is at the end of the street overlooking the beautiful bay. It is a short walk to the beach or you can just hop in your car and drive to the end of the street and park for easy access to your belongings. We enjoyed a glass of wine each watching the beautiful sunsets. I would highly recommend this rental for a Grand Isle getaway!
We're a retired Midwestern couple who took a road trip South including these three nights on Grand Isle. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets over the bay from the deck, and sunrises over the Gulf after a short walk from the house. We liked the unobstructed deck view (no other houses in the way) of the bay. Also enjoyed walking at the State Park and the wooded Nature Conservancy area in the middle of the old town and seeing the old homes. (Check out the pamphlet guides for walking tours of these areas.) The access to the house and deck has lots of steps which could be a problem for some, but we were fine with them.
There was no reason to complain, anything we would have complained about would not have been a surprise to the owner. It is ran down and has been for quite some time. I usually would not say anything and just write off the experience and go on, but at the top of the stairs (the little landing area before you go on to the deck) gave way and slipped down and caught on the next brace which is the only thing that kept me from falling 10 or 12 feet. It is in dire need of repair all around the camp not just the deck. As another reviewer states it smells like sewer in the ditch. I would have to agree with them. I could go on and on but will not. Long story short it is in no shape to be rented to guests in my opinion. The positive reviews have to be from friends and family if not directly from the owner.
We had the most relaxing weekend!!!
Beautiful sun sets
Receptive & hospitable management
Nice rooms, clean and very comfortable
Highly recommend this wonderful getaway
Rented this camp for the reviews and all the things that were described on ad. First and foremost the Sunsets from the deck are fantastic. Would have loved to have eaten outside on the picnic table while watching said sunsets, BUT , it was broken. Tried to Bar B Que on the rickity grill, but it collapsed with out Shrimp Kabobs on it. Left our Kayak at home because ad said there was one, there wasn't and when I was looking at the guest book a guest reported it had not been there back in March 2014. I contacted owner she did say it was missing. So did get get to Kayak because I left mine at home. Crab trap, not there. The Hammock was broken and the rope in pieces on the ground, would have been great to watch the sunset from. The beach cart zip ties are busting loose, 2 of the 3 Beach Chairs are broken, luckily brought one from home. Owners response from text," Grand Isle eats things every season so will be back to renew". Thats great, so we get the left over crap. Been going to the beach 40 years we know how salt water takes things out. She owns it and rents it out,it is a business. I owned a business for 15 years, everything was tip top everyday. Also, the 1 min walk in reality is down the street past 5 homes, cross the street, go from street to dunes and over. Not a 1 min walk, and not one to be made with 3 small kids and the gear that is required. Thank goodness for the half busted beach cart. Also those dining chairs don't exist, you get to dine on folding chairs. And that couch that looks ok in picture is actually something that you might see in a free curb alert on craigslist and has a big hole in it. Could not bring ourselves to sit on it. The bedding in the 2nd bedroom is bunkbeds, which is correct. But the other bedding is 2 FUTON'S. Adults sleep on beds, not Futon's. Addressed these issues by text with owner. No response from her while we were there. There are 3 broken tables on the deck and everything is run down. Even if there had been a couch we wanted to sit on we could not have seen the 19" tv from clear across the room. Lastly, there is this ditch with standing water in right along the house. It smelled when we got there, but I know there are certain beach smells. As the week went along the water got cloudy and greenish and stunk to high heaven. I saw water moving out of the pipe that ran from the house. I had to take a double look and almost puked, brown poo as in Cr** was coming out of the pipe. I wanted to give it a 1
