"Fantastic Stay"

The house worked well for 2 couples. From the moment we drove up the view was spectacular. Pam met us at the airport and guided to the house. Her kindness and concern that we have a great week spoke volumes! The beach was great; you could spend your entire trip at the house and the beach, but the island has a lot to offer. Turtle Cove was a 5 minute drive, we had dinner there several nights! We never had a bad meal! If you are looking for a clean, updated, comfortable and reasonable house to rent you just found it!
