Great Fun!!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this property. We enjoyed seeing the sea turtles and looking for them at night. The sand dunes were fun to explore at low tide as well. The house was clean, and Lydia was very easy to work with too. The only downside to this property was the long walk to the beach.

Great house for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and roomy. My family really enjoyed being together at the beach in this house. The walk to the beach was a little long, but we enjoyed the natural beauty surrounding the boardwalk. It was almost like having the beach to ourselves!! Lydia was great to work with and answered all my questions immediately!! Great location!

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained and the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. The beach is a short walk away. It is not at all crowded and the deep sandbars are fun to explore. Our children found the high tide surf to be irresistible and spent hours and hours in the gentle waves.

Being from the Midwest, we found the local fishermen could provide the highest quality seafood we had ever enjoyed. Shrimp, Mahi-mahi, scallops, grouper, and tuna were our staples, all locally sourced from boats you can see on the horizon.

I would strongly recommend this location to anyone interested in a quiet and noncommercial vacation. It was simply relaxing and beautiful.

Pelican Point House

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week during summer at this house. We found it very easy to deal with the owner, Lydia, very friendly and helpful including prompt service. The house is very clean, nice size rooms and kitchen is well stocked. A short walk through the dunes brings you to a close to empty beach. The sand is beautiful, nearly white and the beach is very clean. If you want to come during the hatching of the sea turtles, it truly is an amazing experience. The water is clean and pretty calm due to a rief protecting the island. Great place to hang with a family and friends. Great for fishing, sun bathing and especially when you don't want to spend time at a comercial, touristy place. Hunting Island State Park is nearby, so is Beaufort and Savannah is just over an hour's drive away. This has been by far my most favorite place to come during the summer and I highly recommend this place!

Beaurtiful with Beachfront view

  • 5 of 5

Clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, with wonderful ocean views. Great bird watching with many dolphin sightings from the screened porch. The free wifi made staying in touch easy.

We highly recommend this property for a tranquil vacation getaway.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

What a fun vacation! Enjoyed walking on the beach, riding bikes, swimming in the ocean, swimming in the pool, playing tennis, eating in and eating out, and exploring Beaufort. I second that it's fun to go to the Shrimp Shack (not a cutesy's really a shack with great fried shrimp). And, Johnson Creek Tavern's she-crab soup is delicious!
