Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. Brian met us at the property and gave us the grand tour, tips for dinner and entertainment, and details about the home and area. He was awesome! We called him once with a minor issue during our stay and he was there before we knew it!

The home is beautiful and welcoming. We appreciated all of the child friendly touches.

We enjoyed the pool, but wish the water was a touch warmer.

The golf cart was such a great way to get us and all of our stuff to and from the beach.

The only tiny complaint would be the TVs. The one in the upstairs queen room didn't work well and the channel selection is limited. Of course, we didn't spend much time watching TV.

Thanks for sharing this lovely home! We will be back!

A wonderful beach home

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in this beach home. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch, pool area, location to town and the beach cart. It was so nice to spend time in a home that was clean and well maintained.

An extra pluss was observing the eclipse from the beach- a lifelong memory. We have enjoyed many beach homes and this home was certainly one of our favorites.

Great beach house even with terrible beach weather.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this house, it is well-equipped and comfortable. Our week at the beach was about 85% rain (and a lot of pouring rain) so we spent more time inside than we usually do. We enjoyed the covered pool area and the screened-in porch. The pool was a nice to have during the few moments of sunshine and we loved having the golf cart for schlepping our stuff to the beach, too bad we didn't get too much use out of it. Brian was very helpful and got us right into the house when we arrived on our first day. We love the location being so close to the bridge.

The property exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, well appointed, and great for extended families. We spent many hours on the screened porch enjoying visiting and reconnecting. The pool was a little cool (due to the need to keep filling it), but the kids loved it and spent many hours swimming. It is a perfect size for them. Thank you for the thoughtful welcome gift. Lastly, a huge kudos to your property manager, Brian Donegan. He welcomed us and gave us some tips about the area. He was 'Johnny on the spot' to help us with a tv converter box issue, and the golf cart battery. Both times he made an unexpectedly and unsolicited timely appearance to help us. He is a gem.

Beautiful vacation home... private, yet close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Such a well-built, well-maintained home with all the amenities. The kitchen (and entire home) was fully equipped and then some! There were books to read, games to play as well as being close to the ocean - just a short golf cart ride (or walk) away! Margie (the owner) was an absolute pleasure to communicate with, and made sure all our questions were answered. Upon arrival, Brian (property manager) was right there to assist with checking in, showing us how things work, where to go and what to see, etc. When we had questions or needed anything, he would respond immediately and show up (if necessary) to take care of things. We were all SO very happy with our stay and will definitely choose this home again when we return! Thank you!!!
