Beautiful, private and clean.
We loved our condo we rented from Bill over New year’s! Weather wasn’t great all week, so the heated pool and hot tub were perfect. Condo was clean and comfortable. Loved the massage chair too! Rental company was super helpful (the fridge was acting up on New Year’s Eve and they came right over). The washer and dryer were a lifesaver too since we have a large family. Would highly recommend this condo!
We hope to see you again soon!
Private pool and close to the beach
We enjoyed our stay. The property is close to the beach, restaurants, church, and the private pool was perfect for our family. It was also quite handy to have the washer/dryer on site. We would definitely consider renting this property again.
Thank you! We hope you see you stay with us again.
We surely will return again this rental was very comfortable everything was great
Thanks for staying with us! We hope you stay again soon!
Great Family Fun
Clean house, low-key, very nice stay for a family with two small kids.
We hope to see you again soon!
Great Home Away from Home!
The house is exactly as described in the pictures. The pool is smaller than it looks in the photos but very enjoyable for the 6 of us and my dad really appreciated the heated water so it was not cold. Functional appliances and very comfortable king beds in two of the rooms. They could use some better kitchen utensils and bath towels but what they had was serviceable. The only negative thing I can say is that the wifi went out every single day we were there in the middle of the day. It was consistently out between about 10am and 7pm every day. I will say that I called it in for service as well as a smoke detector that was chirping and they came right out to fix the problem. The wifi worked when the serviceman left but was out again in a few hours and intermittently out every day so I timed my work for early mornings so I could get it done before the wifi went out. I didn't call back for the repair person to come back, we just worked around it and enjoyed our time on the island. The house is conveniently located and only a short walk to the beach. We loved having the washer and dryer for our swim clothes and beach towels. A great time was had by all!
Please call the rental office if you ever have any problems & they will address it right away.
Excellent choice for family vacation
Our family of four (two adults, kids age 8 and 14) loved this rental! The decor is bright and cheery, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well-stocked, and there is a full sized washer and dryer in the garage. Of course the favorite feature was the private pool and hot tub out back. The backyard is set up nicely with Adirondack chairs and a table set, and there is a gas grill available for use. The pool was the perfect temperature, and was well maintained. It's small, but perfect for floating in and relaxing. The walk to the beach is not too bad; maybe 5 minutes with kids? The management company was excellent; I've rented vacation homes around the world, and I found this to be one of the most professional and responsive companies that I have dealt with. There are great restaurants within a few minutes drive from this home. It is really a great, central location. I think 4-6 people for this house is probably optimal, based on its size.
We do sleep up to 8 in this unit.
Thanks for the great review, we hope to see you again soon!
