Location can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this beach home several times over the years! The location is the best and everything within walking distance or accessible by the free island trolley! The accommodations are very comfortable for a family of six adults and everything from beach towels to a newly renovated well stocked kitchen is available! The Sunsets are phenomenal, we pretty much live on back porch when we're not sleeping or exploring the area.

Tranquil spot with plenty to do

  • 5 of 5

As per the previous year we had an amazing time. John is such a nice guy, and an amazing host. It’s a great home where you can either relax and do nothing but watch the world go by, or head out for a short walk to great restaurants and bars. Thanks for a wonderful 2 weeks.

"Wow, it really is as good as the photos” was my first thought when we arrived after a long trip from the UK with three children. You cannot beat this house for views and accessibility to shops, restaurants and bars. The house is very well stocked with everything you need for indoors & the wonderful outdoors, we were there for two weeks.

My favourite part of our holiday was just sitting on the deck, staring at the amazing view or reading, it was so relaxing and I will so very miss my mornings just sitting out there for hours with my coffees. I only needed to move a couple of feet when I wanted to sunbathe, my husband, who doesn’t appreciate the blazing sun as much as me preferred being on the deck with the shade and ceiling fan. The covered deck is such a great size that you can still sit there when the short sharp summer rain hits, which I did - I pretty much lived outside!

The boys (aged 13,11 & 11) loved the pool and could have happily spent all of their time in there (which they pretty much did!). There is a great selection of pool and beach toys as well as ample loungers, chairs, a BBQ and even a kayak & bikes.

John was next door and was lovely and very friendly & on hand if needed, but not at all intrusive.

We rented a boat one day and also went parasailing. We ate out, had takeaways and BBQs, we had planned to do more, but we were so happy being there that we didn’t want to move, why get ready to go out when you can be outside and watch the most amazing sunsets all without going anywhere…

A pool in your own beach back garden, or walk straight out to the soft as flour public beach into the warmest sea, what is not to love? The beach house really is just as described and I really hope that we go back…a slice of heaven on earth.

This beach home is more beautiful than you can imagine.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a Great Vacation at this beach home. We had plans to go to so many places and end up never leaving the home, It has everything you need and the view is breathtaking ( right on the beach), the pool is Big, Nice and super clean. I did not had the pleasure of meeting Leeann but John the owner is Great and very helpful. I highly recommend this property, the pictures of this home are beautiful but it looks even more beautiful and spacious when you get there.

I'll definitely be back next year!

Thank you John !

Vicki & family.

Nothing beats the convenience of direct beach access & short walk to ammenities

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting this property for 20 years. We are in love with the location! You can walk to Bridge Street in a couple of minutes, and the trolley will take you anywhere else you want to go. The sunsets are spectacular, and the owner is very accessible/available for anything needed.

We brought 2 toddlers and they had a wonderful time. The private pool is another huge perk. We didn't think we would use it as much as we did.

This property has everything you need for a beach locations: towels, beach chairs/umbrellas, beach toys, basic kitchen necessities. Everything we would have hated to lug around was right at our fingertips.

Perfect beachy week!!! Kids and parents enjoyed all the amenities but truly enjoyed our neighbor/ owner, John and his trusty sidekick, Tory! Lovely home with plenty to do on and off the beach. Blue Marlin is hands down best restaurant and homemeade ice cream shop right across the street was great too.

Thank you, John, for everything,

The Stevens Family
