  • Great, clean place...needs a new bed!


    The Good: very clean, beautiful space! Really enjoyed the screened-in porch. Within walking distance to beach. Plenty of parking. Quiet neighbors.

    The Bad: 1 out of 3 ceiling fans worked, garbage disposal didn't work, 1 out of 2 tv remotes worked, bed was TIRED, and sheets were rough.

    Would I stay here again? Yes, but needs some simple updates and repairs.

  • Worked perfectly for me


    Great location, convenient to both ends of the island, well located on main street with a little road noise. Very clean upon arrival. Quick response for a couple of small concerns. I would definitely stay again. Older but updated throughout , walking distance to most things on the island and near trolley stops and the beach. I loved it!

  • Great accommodations!


    The house was spacious and well-stocked with everything needed for a relaxing week at the beach (plenty of towels, beach chairs, kitchen equipment to make quick meals, W/D for mid-week laundry). The house was exceptionally clean, and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay.

  • Perfect Vacation Home


    This home was more than we expected! Perfect for us and had everything we needed. Lots of the essentials, we didn't need to bring anything. Plenty of beach chairs and two umbrellas. The screened in porch was a bonus. The house was very clean and the beds and furniture was very comfortable. We will definitely try to rent this house again as it was better than any other house we've rented in the past. Perfect place to stay and relax!
