My family of 6 stayed at Island Retreat and the house was fantastic. Plenty of room for everyone when we were actually in the house. Sitting on the front porch you can see and hear the ocean. The top deck off the master bedroom is great for star gazing. The house is clean, organized, great design. It is right at beach access 25 so if you forgot something at the house, just run back up. It is a 1.5 mile beach walk to the Shoals club. It is centrally located to get to the market, country club, shoals club and east beach for the sunrise. It's a fun drive through the forest in your golf cart to get back by the lighthouse and ferry port. Lots of animals for kids to see, Conservancy has amazing classes and interns. We saw three turtle nest hatchings where the interns assist the last surviving turtles to get out of the nest and head into the ocean. Your entire family will love the turtles. Shoals club was our favorite with the pool or beach option, outdoor eating, DJ, taco night, etc. Great memories. Great place to
Thank you for your comments! We hope to see you back on the island soon.

GOOD-rental house was a nice size for family of 8, excellent location on the island, the beach access was directly across the street from our home & the beach was beautiful/had excellent waves to enjoy. BAD-the rental house was hot as hell the entire time-sign of poor construction and severely undersized AC units-it is ridiculous that the bottom floor of the house would be 81 degrees at NIGHT! when you opened the closet in the upstairs bedroom you were hit with hot air like you had walked into the attic; poor housekeeping-when we arrived fruit flies were all over the kitchen; photo above of what was hanging over our bed covered in dust!; the fact that had to clean the entire house before we left was irritating-we were expected to drive the "recycle" trash to the center-are YOU KIDDING ME??? I paid $6,500 for this rental....you take the trash where it goes! UGLY-most unfriendly island ever-all the workers obviously hate their jobs; BHI limited rental co employees are the only exception-they were nice
