“The Perfect Vacation Ever!”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Our stay at Petite Retreat was the most enjoyable, relaxing vacation ever! The location is perfect, away from the hustle and bustle but extremely convenient to shopping, restaurants, and amenities. If you wanted an ocean view, I would suggest you select and ocean front accommodation, wouldn't that make sense? The beach house is totally renovated with brand new appliances and everything in perfect operating order. The beds are firm and comfortable. The front porch, I can't say enough about the front porch. No matter the weather outside or the time of day, the house is perfectly located to catch an amazing breeze. The beach is a very short walk but it was difficult for me to leave the porch. The Ward Realty people were friendly and accommodating and check in went perfectly. All arrangements were in perfect order. I look forward to returning often!

“NO beach view, Not good beach access”
Reviewed 21 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

While I love that I was able to take my dog on his first vacation, and the porch was great for hanging out on, there is no beach view from this location (blocked by houses and dunes) and the actual beach access was down the street; not very convenient. There is a view of the sound, but no access there either, the lot is kind of sandwiched between other houses with access. Lastly, it had the least comfortable furniture I have ever tried to sit on and a tiny TV (we ended up moving the couch across to almost in front of the door just to watch anything). (And there was a snake in the outside shower!) Having said all that, I absolutely loved the island and the beaches and will return.
