Great place with tons of space. Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay included 10 guys and we felt that if we needed to we could have fit 15 in comfortably. We never felt like we were on top of each other and all the amenities were perfect for what we needed. The beach is about 2 blocks away and can easily be walked. Restaurants and bars are also within walking distance. Would stay again and recommend for others!

nice house.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at family tides a week in December. The house was clean and very well equipped with everything you would need. When we needed some help, Kay got the job done. Blackbeards was not very far away, and I Would recommend that restaurant to anyone. They had wonderful food. I would recommend family tides to any of my friends

Location was great but property needs updating

  • 2 of 5

We were excited to come to the beach for a week and we did enjoy the short walk between the beach and the rental home. The house had good bones and certainly enough room for our party, but was in dire need of updating. The floors are terribly warped and we felt like we were walking through a minefield as we negotiated around soft spots in the floors. The pool table downstairs had a dip in the middle so no matter where you hit the balls, they all rolled back to the center. The entire game room had old and worn out gaming tables (foosball, ping pong, pool) and smelled like mildew.

Great house close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean. The kitchen had everything for cooking. The kitchen table was big enough for 10 people for family dinner. The open kitchen-living room was great. Short distance from the beach. This house was perfect for our family and would recommend to anyone.

Good house with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. It was very comfortable for us. There were 9 of us and there was plenty of room for everyone. We weren't crowded and we could all sit together for a family meal. The location was perfect! We could walk to the beach or to shops. The property manager was amazing and she made sure we had everything we needed and was ready to help when we locked ourselves out. My kids especially liked the game room. I would definitely go back to this home in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone. My only warning is be careful on the stairs. Between the humidity and being wet from the beach they can get quite slick. If you take your time and are careful it isn't a problem but if you are excited or in a hurry you could slip. We had two falls that were minor. They were excited and in a hurry and slipped. We loved our time there and can't wait to return.

Spring Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent several days at the island and found the beach house to be perfect for our needs. We took three families and our kids. Each couple had a nice bedroom and the kids had the bunk bedroom! The location was close to the beach with a short walk where we spent hours and hours by the ocean! One evening we walked to the go cart place and our boys had so much fun! The living room was big enough for us to play charades for game night! We will definitely stay here again!
