The perfect vacation in the perfect house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Island Time for a week in September, and I have to say that this is the best beach house we've ever been in. The house is not only amazing, but I've never seen this level of cleanness in any other beach rental. The house is spotless! Thanks to the golf cart, we didn't miss being in a front beach property at all, and the beach wasn't crowded. And if TV is important to you, and read the review about the main TV being an older model, no need to worry, since the TV has been updated.

The owner and the property manager were a pleasure to work with. I hope to be back next year!

Extremely Pleased

  • 5 of 5

The only thing that I would suggest is an updating to the listing. Our experience was incredibly relaxing and a perfect get away from our usual everyday life. The house was wonderfully maintained and spacious. The location was very easy to find and conveniently located for accessing the beach with the golf cart provided or by just walking. The access to the beach was possibly the nicest access to a beach I have every been on in my life. The property manager was extremely courteous and available if anything is needed. Everything was obviously well maintained and cared for at this home. If it is possible we will be trying to get this home again for future vacations.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We really can't say enough great things about our stay at Island Time. The place was exactly what the pictures showed, but nicer. We spent every morning at the beach and the afternoons in the pool. We also spent plenty of time exploring the area. The immediate town is quite small but easy to get around. Lots of fun to be had from Beaufort, Fort Macon, and lots of other little gems. But our home base was the true star. The only complaints are quite minor (I hesitate to use the word "complaint"). It would be nice to include some laundry soap and dishwasher detergent, and garbage bags as well. We had to purchase all these things, and of course barely used any. We flew to N. Carolina do couldn't take anything back. We did leave that stuff and I hope the rental agency left it, but I'm guessing they toss that stuff out. The home is extremely green, with lots of recycled materials. With that in mind, why not have some basic community essentials (or let folks pass along those things rather than waste). Again, not a huge thing, and if we drove wouldn't have minded as much. But other than that, this is a top notch home. Thanks for making it available to us!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Island Time! The house is gorgeous with such fun design elements like ship's steering wheel and surfboard furniture. The family enjoyed the open kitchen/ living room and of course the pool. The kids were able to spread out and enjoy themselves and the adults had plenty of their own space as well. As others have mentioned, the golf cart was a great way to quickly get everyone to the beach (along with all our chairs and towels!). You won't regret booking a stay at this piece of paradise away from home.

Our family just returned from the exclusive Dolphin Ridge, Island Time. Our stay was wonderful!! The beach was amazing!! The pictures and description of the property are accurate, but don’t do it justice. Conveniently close to bike path. Private pool made it easy to entertain our little one. Golf cart made it fun to get to the beach. We barbequed almost every night, and had all meals on the upper enclosed porch. Wi-Fi made it easy to connect to our phones and laptop. Looking forward to next year. We will be back. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
