Great house!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for about 10 people in town for a wedding. The location was perfect for everywhere we wanted to go, Ocean Course, Red's Ice House, River Course, etc. The house was a fun place to cook, play pool, take a swim, enjoy some music with friends, etc. It was exactly what we needed. A comfortable place to house a lot of close friends. Everything was clean, in order, and the reservation folks were easily approachable and easy to work with. I recommend this home.

Wonderful, Family-Friendly Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed staying at this fantastic home! Wonderfully appointed, very clean and inviting, the home had everything we needed or wanted, and the kitchen is a cook's paradise. The screened-in porch was a great gathering place in the evenings, and we had enough room so that we could spend time together, but also enough room to have some privacy. We loved this home so much, we plan to stay again this coming summer! The homeowners were great to work with, and I would recommend this home to anyone wanting a rental with plenty of room!
