Fantastic experience - would rent again.

  • 5 of 5

I spent 2 weeks in October at the house. The Great Harbors community is a lovely location and offers privacy from local traffic. It is a wonderful property and the house has every amenity you could possibly want. The owner is very responsive to any needs and questions. The fenced backyard is a definite plus if you have pets. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone.

Fun Week!

  • 4 of 5

9 of us shared the home for a week. Stephanie, the owner was very accommodating and patient as I contacted her several times ahead of our stay. She couldn't have been more gracious and helpful, suggesting activities for our grandchildren. The fenced yard was perfect for our little dogs and the neighborhood was wonderful for long walks. Thank you Stephanie!
