One of BEST Experiences we have EVER HAD!

***** 5 Star Let me just say that this was one of the best experiences we have ever had. Jill and Sarah were the best hosts. The place was even better in person. Any questions we had she answered immediately and she was very accommodating and we appreciate that! We were celebrating a couple of birthdays and just getting together and we couldn't have picked a better spot to do it in. It was so great that we are thinking about making this an annual trip. Thank you Jill and Sarah for making our trip so memorable. We look forward to staying with y'all again real soon.

Family Wedding Weekend

We stayed here for our daughters wedding & it was perfect ! This house is one block from Main Street - centrally located for all our activities. The neighborhood is very quiet & private. The house is so charming w plenty of room & the pool adds a contemporary flare . The bridal party stayed here the night before the wedding & had the best time - I think the chickens were a huge hit with the girls!!! Jill has thought of everything & was a great hostess. We are so grateful that we found this place - what a great wedding weekend !!

UNREAL house and location!!

Fantastic stay!! We were blown away. The house is stunning - the pictures are a true depiction, even better! It was honestly a dream to stay there. Jill was an incredible host, very oblidging and even overnighted some keys one of our girls left. Above and beyond! The house is a few blocks away from downtown, with total privacy! The host even left us beach towels and sunscreens/bugsprays. Book this property - you will love it like we did!! 08/27/2019
