Thank you. We had a very enjoyable time and hope to do it again soon. It was a little wet all week but very relaxing and you can’t beat the views.

Better than Expected! Great Vacation Home on Live Oak Island!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and condition of the home. The property and location were absolutely perfect. It was also a pleasure doing business with Eric. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place near the bay.

My family and I were looking for a place to escape to and relax. We have neveres explored this part of the state. This house and Live Oak Island met and exceeded our expectations. The house was upgraded and comfortable. The stars at night were amazing and the silence of the surroundings was exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend and we plan to return.

Do I Have to Leave?

  • 5 of 5

I have had the opportunity to visit this property on multiple occasions and each time is not long enough. The house is not only the prettiest one on the block, but it is perfectly equipped for a wonderful weekend at the coast. One of my favorite features is the porch swing. I could spend hours swinging and watching the world go by. The views are just breath taking. Some other great things about the house were the covered parking, the outdoor shower, and all of the lounging decks! Perfect for adventure seekers as well as those looking to just kick up their feet and spend a relaxing weekend at the coast.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this beautiful home several times and each time love it more. We had a house full of people with plenty of room to spread out. The waterfront views are awesome and enjoyed so much just sitting on the front deck enjoying the wildlife. Brought a boat and fished everyday. Caught speckled trout and cobia. The waters are an open playground to explore. The sunsets are amazing and the dock is a perfect place to star gaze at night. The house is well equipped and very homey and comfortable. Absolutely just love staying here. Will be back for sure - SOON!

Gulf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic home! We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find a newly renovated home with all the amenities we could ask for. The upper and lower level decks were great for outdoor meals and the kayaks were a bonus. We spent plenty of time on the deck just enjoying the views and abundant wildlife. The provided grills and charcoal/propane as well as a variety of cookware and modern appliances made us feel right at home as there was not a thing we felt we were missing for meal preparation. The beds and bathrooms were also newly renovated, clean and comfortable. I look forward to our next visit to the area and hope to be able to stay here again.

Relaxing Week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our week stay on Live Oak Island. It just happened to be wet all week but it was very relaxing and you couldn't beat the views over the bay and grassy areas from the large deck and even from inside the home, especially at the dining room table. The home was well taken care of and very comfortable. Hope to return soon, want to see those wonderful sunsets that others have reported.
