  • Midway Getaway


    The river house is very much as advertised and a very quiet, out of the way place. It was probably more remote and removed than we had anticipated; about 30 min from any real grocery stores, restaurants, etc. But again, a very peaceful and nicely setup place to relax. The back enclosed porch was wonderful and a great place to eat and watch the sun set. The owner was great and communication was excellent.

    "Hi Bill, we appreciate your feedback. We are sorry that you did not discover that there is a grocery store and three restaurants 11 Minutes away in Midway. The IGA grocery store is next to a pizza restaurant, an Asian restaurant, and the Hops on Fire Brewing Company. The IGA is where we and our guests enjoy shopping for groceries. We hope that you will return in the future and enjoy that shopping convenience."

  • Nice getaway!


    Fred and Jane were wonderful hosts! So communicative and kind. The property was clean and inviting. My husband and I felt right at home and felt comfortable relaxing and just hanging out at the property. We also discovered the Nespresso machine, which we must be living under a rock because we have never heard of it before. Needless to say, we bought one when we got back. Overall, we had a great experience!

  • Time With Family


    My sister, Aunt and I loved our stay at this beautiful cottage. Communication with the host was very easy. We had no issues during our stay and enjoyed relaxing and spending time together. We all live in different cities in Florida so don’t see each other as much as we would like.

    The beds were very comfortable which is a blessing at our ages🙂. We would definitely choose this cottage to stay at again!

  • Perfect in every way!


    This home and location were perfect for our stay. We wanted somewhere within a reasonable drive to Hilton Head and Savannah, but a quiet place to relax at night. This place and the hosts did not disappoint. We enjoyed catching crabs off the dock and nights on the covered patio. We would stay here again. 10/10!
