A wonderful place for the family to reconnect!

  • 5 of 5

Boy, we had fun! Kids in and out, racing around. They bounced from paddleboards to bikes to taking the ferry over to the ocean. At night, all scrubbed and clean from a day of fun in the sun, we would gather and make each other laugh until our sides split.

It is a great place to reconnect with the kids. Clean. Well equipped and cozy.

Peaceful waterfront property

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this property several times and it never disappoints. The location is wonderful, close to shops and restaurants and on the canal. The property is very clean and well equipped. This property is great for adults as well as children. Lots of equipment to enjoy the Island, kayaks, sups and bikes and lots of board games and books. We already have plans to come back. Sue Ellen is very easy to work with, we had a wonderful time.

Darling cottage! Fully equipped and a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The "twenty something " kids loved all the access to the water and used the kayaks and paddle boards extensively. The cottage is very comfortable and didn't lack anything. We enjoyed the proximity to Marine and all the shops and restaurants. Once we parked our car, we didn't use it again until the day we left. The ferry was a short walk and we went back and forth to the beach frequently. A very relaxing week in a very relaxing environment!!! We were sorry to leave.

We had an amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The little kids swam and played in the safety of the canal while we watched from the deck. They wrote their names in sand on the sea wall and pet every dog that passed their way. The older kids stayed up late and played board games in the front room whiles the rest of us slept soundly. Everyone got to spend time with Dad. It was an excellent trip. Thanks.
