Exceeds Expectations    Sep 23, 2017

We spent the week at this lovely home and loved every minute! The location was perfect and so convenient to shopping, restaurants, bicycle rides, and beach access. The community has a wonderful beach vibe that feels as if you have been swept away to the islands. It is a darling community with a closed road and access. We felt totally safe about our kids riding bikes and playing ball in the road. And the pool was the perfect size for an afternoon refresher. The house was super clean and had everything we needed. The décor was so tasteful and classy. We enjoyed the house so much and would recommend for sure!!!

WONDERFUL!!!    May 28, 2017

This is the perfect beach cottage!! Not only was it beautiful but it feels very safe and it's very clean and comfortable. The owners were wonderful to work with, very kind and pleasant. They responded to me right away when I had questions. This is a perfect location. It was a 2-3 minute walk to the beach and pool and walking distance to Silver Sands Outlets and close to resturants. I would love to stay again and I highly recommend it!
