Guestbook comments from the owner

We were specifically looking for 3 things:

1) an uncrowded, quiet place on the water

2) a place we could take our dogs

3) a great kitchen to cook & enjoy fresh seafood

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Hope to be back soon!!

It is a very easy and relaxing place to vacation.

This was our second visit and definitely not our last. We love the homey feel, and the outdoors is just awesome. We caught crabs again and got to see the dolphins this time. I know our children have memories that will last a lifetime.

Great Family Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 stayed here in June 2017 for a week and we absolutely loved it. Once we found the driveway immediately we liked that it was tucked away in the woods right on the bay. You couldn't here any traffic at all. The first thing I noticed how secluded and private this house was. Watching the sunrise and sunsets on the pier were spectating. The size of the house was plentiful for the size of my family, we spent the mornings making breakfast in the large open kitchen to start the day off. The beach was a short few minutes away from the house and we had no problems getting there. For someone that wants the ability to relax and not have to deal with the hustle and bustle of crowds this place is the right place. I would recommend this place for anyone that wants that piece of mind. We will be back that's for sure. Thank You!

This home is EXACTLY what we needed, from the fully furnished Kitchen to the beautiful sunsets from the deck and pier. We could not ask for more!!! Melissa is a pleasure to work with and we will definitely be returning! My husband, myself, our 3 boys (16,17,18) and our old lazy furbaby (Ruby) enjoyed every moment we spent at this property. Even though it stormed, like serious storms, every afternoon, we even enjoyed playing some cards as a family, which is rare! She even supplied the cards!!! (would have played monopoly but that usually ends in screaming matches and tables flipped) So Let me again say THANKS MELISSA for everything!!!! We WILL be returning!!!!!!!

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most memorable vacations we've had as a family. There was plenty to do and nothing to do, whichever worked best for you. The first thing I noticed was the cleanliness of the place, and I instantly felt comfortable. We had 3 of our children with us. The 8 year old was so happy to go catch crabs and play in the sand and explore the grounds. The 13 year old loved the crabbing and our days at the beach. The 17 year old loved the porch to read her books and draw. And my husband and I loved the tranquility of the deck for coffee in the morning and cocktails at sunset along with the pelicans. We have already scheduled our return visit, and I am counting the days!
