  • Nice house in secluded area


    This is a nice house right on the water in a very secluded area. We enjoyed our time here

    Great VRBO, just as described. The house was very clean and well stocked. We made use of the bikes and kayaks. We toured some of the local state and national parks.

  • Awesome views in a quiet area


    Clean, comfortable, and spacious. Safe and quiet area. Enjoyed the views through large windows from the great room as well as the high front deck facing the bayou. Kitchen had everything we needed. Appreciated the supportive bamboo mattress in the master bedroom. Awesome shower; bring your own hair dryer. Enjoyed several afteroon excursions in the well-used canoe using broken halves of kayak paddles to propel ourselves. Saw dolphins! My husband was able to use one of the rusty bikes to ride beside me while I went for a run. We bought small baking racks to use over the broken charcoal grill's grate, which was rusted through. If you are an early morning canoe or kayak user, schedule your visit when high tide is closer to your launch time. High tides were about 2am and 5pm with sunset at 6pm when we were there, and most mornings there was only mud at the end of the dock at sunrise around 7am. Not an issue for us. Fun and relaxing adventures: Walked on the sunny beach and boardwalk at Bald Point State Park while it was below zero back home in Minnesota; hiked longer than we planned starting at the Cathedral of the Palms trailhead (Shell Point Rd & Spring Creek Hwy); toured the Shell Point Beach area from the water by canoe; bought shrimp and scallops from My Way Seafood in Panacea; drove to Crawfordville a few times for the great selection of groceries (especially organics) at Wal-Mart; watched the interesting variety of birds in the bayou.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Penny, the homeowners have asked us to share this response:
    So glad you enjoyed your stay, and we really appreciate such a detailed review. It’s only because of considerate renters like you that we are able to know what needs attention. The paddles and grill grate have since been replaced. We hope you can stay with us again in the future!

  • Great location and very relaxing!


    Love the location and the conveniences of this house. Lovely, clean and true to listing.
