Clean and amazing location!


August 2022

I rented this house for a bachelorette trip and all of us were so impressed! Room to spread out, great common areas and the plunge pool made it perfect. All the bedding/ decor in the house is high end making the house even more spectacular. The concierge was easy to reach and even put our groceries we ordered in the kitchen/ fridge so they didn’t sit out due to a delayed flight. Southern hospitality at it’s best. Highly recommended this house.


August 2022

The host was very responsive. We didn’t have any issues checking in, the directions were clear. The house is beautiful and very well kept. Will definitely be on the lookout for more houses by this host. Thank you
