Stress Relief!    May 11, 2017




Nash's Shanda was more than we could have hoped for. Very comfortable beach home within short distance to pool and beach. We were very lucky to find this jewel at the last minute! Had a great time, loved the area. Took sunset dolphin cruise at Harbor Village Walk. Many great restaurants and shopping. House had all anyone could ask for. Very clean and well kep. We hope we can make it back soon! Very well maintained property & managers couldn't have been nicer. This property won't disappoint you! Thank you again!!

Beach Getaway    Sep 05, 2016




This property was perfect for our stay! We have 3 couples that went and we all had our own space and plenty of room! We loved being able to sit up on the porch when it was raining, it was so peaceful! The beach is also super close which was nice! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again!
