The house overall was great. It could use some updating. The Tvs were small and a few of the mattresses very hard and uncomfortable. Otherwise, we enjoyed the home very much and had a great vacation week. Island Getaway has been our choice for many years now, and we are never disappointed with your service.

House was just right, lots of room to cook, read, play, and eat! Location was a short walk to the beach. Plenty of parking for cars and bikes. Wish we had access to tennis facilities. Pool was a little disappointing and the deck area was large but very rough and splitery. Needs some work.
"Lots of space, amenities, and comfort in a great location!"

We had a fantastic experience with our rental. The house was more than big enough for our extended family and even with the beach being so close, the pool was still a hit, especially for the kids. This rental is perferct for a little peace and quiet.
