The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I booked A Slice of Heaven for my husband's birthday and I am SO glad I did. From the moment I requested to book, to the moment we were (sadly) returning home, Mr. Owens made sure everything was seamless and perfect. The house is absolutely perfect and was a great size for us two, and our 2 dogs. The views were breathtaking, the accommodations were very generous, and the patio area on the river was everything we'd hoped for. We've stayed at other properties along the river, but this one was definitely our favorite. Lots of privacy, has it's own driveway vs. carport, and a much larger patio area than the others. We even requested an early check in since we took the whole day off and we were accommodated instantly. The one and only "complaint" I have is that I wish I could have stayed much longer!! Thank you for everything, Mr. Owens! We will definitely be requesting to book again in the future :)

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

For the four of us, we could not asked for a better location, the home was within a beautiful walk to the esplanade area of town and beach, various restaurants were all within walking distance, lovely view of the waterway. My 89 years young mother loves your cozy fireplace for the cool mornings. Thank you very much for allowing us to rent your home.

Potential 5-Star Beach Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house and the location! Owners are great too!

The deck and access to river and beach by kayak is HEAVEN! The easy walk to everything in town was so convenient but far enough away from the main strip that noise was never a problem. Location can't be beat!

If you have a bad back, I'm afraid the mattress has something to be desired. Too soft and molded toward the middle; ended up with headache all weekend. Other family had no problems though. A new firm mattress would solve the problem.

Also the time it takes to wash a load of sheets and a load of white towels AND colored towels the morning before one leaves at 11am, results in an early wakeup and shower for everyone in the house. If you want to enjoy your last morning, I suggest bringing your own sheets and towels.

Loved the patio and view of the river and watching the ducks!!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! We will definitely be back! Loved having a glass of wine on the patio and it was really nice having the outdoor heater to take the chill away. It was a nice bonus having Netflix too!

Adorable cozy home with great parking in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We brought our 2 young girls here during their winter break. The girls had a blast. On the rainy days we were able to cozy up by the fireplace.
