Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this house do not do it justice. You feel like you are in a Better Homes and Garden location. The kitchen was equipped with ever item thinkable. There are just not enough words to express how much our family enjoyed our stay. Karen & Ken made you feel at home. Definitely would recommend a stay at this location.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this home and the people who own it! The house is beautifully decorated, stocked with every kitchen amenity you could possibly dream of, and meticulously kept! The owners seem like wonderful people and judging by this home, they take a lot of pride and great care of the property. I would highly recommend this vacation home!

Family get together post College graduation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a week after our daughters graduation. It was spacious enough for several friends and family members. We couldn't believe how well equipped the kitchen was. We love to cook and it had everything we needed to make memorable family meals. The bicycles were perfect as the young adults rode them to and from the beach. All of our family and friends, who came and went during the week, thoroughly enjoyed themselves at "A Great Escape". Karen and Ken have made sure that the house is equipped with everything a family needs to have a wonderful beach vacation. The house is decorated beautifully. All linens and plush, bath towels are stored throughout the house. We will definitely be renting from The Suttons again. Thank you for a memorable and absolutely relaxing week!

Our Grad Party Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for the week in order to celebrate our daughter and son's graduations. We walked into the house and were mesmerized by the stunning decor. It looked like a tropical paradise. When we came into the house we explored the various rooms and amenities. The bedrooms were spacious and luxuriously decorated. The kitchen is a chef's dream and is fully stocked with everything you need to make wonderful meals. Everything was spotless and in pristine condition. The den was a nice addition to the house and allowed us to spend numerous hours laughing and playing games together. The back deck and pool area provided hours of comfort and relaxation. We were able to barbeque, enjoy outdoor meals, swim in the pool for hours on end, play games on the grass, and lounge on the reclining chairs. We were able to walk to Harpoon Hannah's across the street and enjoy the drinks and music. There was a live DJ on Friday night and we recommend this bar/restaurant for young adults looking to have a good time. The house was a short walk to the beach, miniature golf, restaurants, and a short drive to many stores. There were many bikes and fishing poles in the garage for personal use. We utilized the bikes many times throughout the week and they were a nice addition. We highly recommend "A Great Escape" to anybody looking for a relaxing vacation and we will be returning soon.

Fabulous Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was wonderful, thanks to the amenities at a great escape. The home is meticulously kept and everything you could possibly think of was provided...including bath towels and linens.

We had 16 people stay very comfortably and we all had our privacy. My parents really enjoyed the large Master suite with the huge jetted tub and private balcony overlooking the family room with gorgeous stone fireplace.

The bikes provided for guests were convenient to ride to the beach or just around the neighborhood. The private pool was a great bonus for the evenings after a hot day on the beach. Some days we didn't even leave the home.

The kitchen had every cooking tool imaginable including a roaster, crockpot, blender, mixer, skewers, gas grill, bake ware, tupperware etc....we made great use of the kitchen for meals and snacks. The upgraded appliances, granite counters and ceramic tile floors made cleanup in the kitchen a cinch!

Dining out is a great option -Phillips seafood is on the next block and Harpoon Hanna's is a walk across the street. Both excellent places to eat with varied prices and menu choices. Harpoon Hanna's has a lively Tiki bar on the bay for those who are late nighters.

The location is pleasantly quiet, yet convenient to all the restaurants, stores and shops on Coastal Highway.

We have already reserved the home for next year. Thank you to Ken and Karen for A Great Escape!

Loved It!! Great Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Four families shared this house for a week. Everyone had a wonderful time. The house was everything that we had hoped for and more, very clean and maintained. Much more spacious than the pictures show. Great location if you prefer quiet to noisy. Next door to Harpoon Hanna's is a bonus, great food and drinks. We would recommend this property to everyone, especially nice for families.
