This house is simply fantastic! It's right on the water. So you sleep at night and hear the waves crashing. The house is very nicely decorated. It is a reinvigorating place which also gives you a sense of peace. It is spacious and well appointed.
It is also very well located. You can walk to quaint little stores, restaurants and the beach.
The owner is very accessible and very accommodating. He answered all our questions in a very timely manner and allowed us to have more guests than the website indicated.
Overall, it simply exceeded our expectations. We will definitely recommend it and book it next year again.
My family rented Island House to celebrate my Mom's 70th. We had 3 couples and 5 kids (ages 12 years to 8 months). The house was perfect for us. There was a fantastic bedroom with en suite bath for each couple, and room for the kids to spread out a bit. The kitchen is very well stocked and large, with 2 refrigerators, dishwashers, and sinks, which meant plenty of space for us to cook together (which we love to do). The kids loved eating and doing projects at the island, and the dining room has a great view, especially for breakfast in the morning (too dark at dinner time in the winter to see anything!). The basement was the perfect place for the kids to be loud, which was great because it was so cold (single digits with sub-zero windchill!) that they weren't outside much. We would love to be there again sometime in the summer when we could enjoy exploring outside more. Ralph was very friendly and helpful!! We mostly ate at the house, but had a lovely evening just up the road at Northern Union and highly recommend it.
I can't say enough about this beautiful home. I was looking for a place to have my small, intimate wedding and as soon as I saw the island house I knew it was just perfect. Ralph, the owner, is such a kind and welcoming person. He let me visit before our stay to take a look around and get an idea of where things would take place. He offered suggestions on where to go, places to eat and good places to shop. He also recommended a catering company which we were thrilled with.
The island house is picture perfect with spectacular views from each room you're in. The house is large but cozy and comfortable. It's beautifully decorated and everything you could possibly need is there. Each bedroom has an outstanding view. The master bedroom has a huge master bathroom with jacuzzi bath and walk in shower. The bedroom has a large deck overlooking the ocean. We slept with the double doors open and slept so well with the sound of the ocean. The sunrise was unreal! Almost all bedrooms have a large bathroom which was fantastic for our guests. The kitchen was great for hosting a gathering. It has 2 refrigerators and freezers, 2 dishwashers and 2 sinks and plenty of space. The hot tub overlooking the ocean was a hit with everyone.
The Island house brought my family together for one of the best times we all had together. We're planning our next stay.
