Great spot - exactly as it looks in the oictures

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son and I spent an incredibly relaxing week here. Great spot, walking distance to the beach on three sides of the island. Great little pool to cool off in if you want to stay closer to home. All in all, a great place to stay if you are looking for some quiet r ∨b

Ideal Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage! It was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The private pool/patio was beautifully landscaped and the perfect spot to return to after a day at the beach. The location was great, on the quieter north end, with beautiful beaches, ice cream and a few restaurants within easy walking distance (though our 5 year old traveling companion disagrees). Many more restaurants, shops, and beaches just a short drive away. Very nice kitchen and eating areas (inside & out), so we ate several meals "at home." The owners seemed very friendly and laid back. They live nearby so were accessible if needed, but gave us our space.

Beautiful property in a nice location to visit the Island. This home is very clean and spacious. Pool and land scaping make it hard to leave, it is so nice, private and relaxing. Definitely recommend.

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location,a very quiet street, yet a pleasant 10minute walk to Bean Pt Beach, both piers and Pine Ave, just a bit further to the Sandbar , Slims or anything else in town. In rentals we usually need to put stuff in the spare bedroom, but this had tons of space in the master. There is a relaxed vibe with no big book of do's and don'ts. The best part is the private back yard on the canal and pool.
