The property was beautiful and very clean with many additional perks.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean with easy instructions for use of TV, VCR, etc. Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert provided the home with every kitchen utensil you could imagine. Everything that was advertised they delivered and more. This was easily the best family vacation we have taken. Six adults and twin 20 month year old toddlers and we didn't feel cramped. The pool and baby pool were beautiful, clean, and well maintained. There was a beach shuttle provided. I would recommend this home to anyone. Great customer service. There were not any problems of any kind during our stay.

Absolutely perfect beach vacation for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house with our 3.5-and 1.5-year-old kids, my husband's parents and my parents for a week. This house and community were perfect! The kids loved having access to the pools and we loved being able to take the community shuttle to/from the beach. The house itself was the perfect size - each family had their own bathroom and sleeping spaces. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could dream of: blender, toaster, coffee maker(s), and the regular appliances. The only thing that I would recommend is if you are doing linens yourself, also bring dish towels and bath mats... this was something that didn't even register when I thought to bring beach/shower towels and sheets. The screened in porch is perfect for mornings and evenings. There is a playground around the corner that was perfect for our kids. Steve was very helpful and informative leading up to and during our stay. My husband has always disliked the beach and ocean and after our experience staying in this house/community he suggested coming to the East Coast for all of our big family trips. I couldn't have been happier with the stay.

Great

  • 4 of 5

Great condo. Best equipped kitchen I have ever stayed in. Nice bedrooms, comfortable beds. Only complaint was the pool/sauna closed at 5. Had no idea it closed that early. Shuttle to the beach was very nice

Your home is lovely and equipped with everything we could possibly need. The bed were very comfortable & a great master bedroom & bath. The owner followed up at the end of our trip and we received our deposit back promptly.

The PERFECT Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about Steve and Beth's home?!

My family and I loved it and we are thinking about making this our annual winter escape from the city! The pictures only give you a small glimpse of the property, because the home is a lot larger than it appears in the pictures -- also, some updates were made since the last pictures were posted! The home has a nice open floor plan, that gave us the opportunity to do different things, while still being in close proximity!

We happen to stay during the coldest weekend of the season, so we pretty much stayed in and really got a chance to enjoy the home and relax! My girls, ages 10 and 12, had their Xbox and my husband and I enjoyed the owner's collection of DVDs with our feet up on the leather recliners -- some titles we even forgot about, LOL! My husband is big on sound, so he really enjoyed the sound system while watching this season's premiere of The Walking Dead!

The home is spacious and CLEAN! Cleanliness is very important to me... No dust bunnies, yucky bathrooms or strange odors in the air! From the moment you step inside, you feel at peace... Like, you made the right choice booking this home!

The kitchen is stocked with just about everything you can think of... More than enough plates, glasses, and silverware! We loved having the Keurig available! Coffee all day!

Granted it was freezing outside, the screened porch was very inviting -- the breeze must be nice, as you're rocking in the rocking chairs!

Trying to touch on everything, before I run out of characters... The beds were nice and comfy! If you had any questions on how to do something (turn on the tv, adjust the temperature of the house, etc.), there is a note to guide you!

About the owner -- We checked in late on Friday, due to the snow -- Steve reached out to us on Saturday morning via text to make sure that we got in safely and that the home met our expectations... And it did, it exceeded our expectations... And Steve reached out to us again on the day of our departure! Excellent communication!
