“Home away from home”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Loved this house. It was so accommodating for me and my family. We had an awesome trip and this rental helped by keeping us under one roof to share family meals and down time together. Highly recommend a stay here.

“Fantastic Place”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our family stayed here for a week in July and it was fantastic. Plenty of room and the kids really enjoyed the back deck and the firepit. They made smores and had a great time. We were so close to Pleasure Pier that we could see it from the top deck. Went to the beach every day and the beaches were beautiful. No seaweed this year. We will definitely go back.

“What a true find this home was!”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had 8 adults and 4 kids and had plenty of room. Home had everything you could want and was walking distance to the beach. I would not hesitate and in fact looking forward to renting it again.

“Home Away From Home: Family Time Made Easy :) !!!”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

The home was so breath taking when we arrived and it was so much better in person. I would have to say it was the best home on the block and we loved the vibrant colors. This home truly makes you feel welcome, excited, loved, and like you are really on vacation. It had every amenity that a home would have and everything was fully stocked with cleaning supplies, bathroom necessities, and dishes/pots & pans :). We had about 16 people (adults/children) staying under very comfortably on roof for a week which really enhanced our family bonding. Our teenagers really loved the back yard deck and shower and everything worked properly and looked amazing during the day/night. Due to a minor issue with the refrigerator we were able to personally meet the owner's (Ethel & Husband) and they were very nice, respectable, kind, caring, and helpful people. They came and fixed the problem very fast and efficient and did not interrupt our vacation one bit. Thank You Ethel once again for being so attentive and efficient, it was greatly appreciated. We cant wait to return and stay again :) !!!!
