We just got home from a 3 week stay at Island House, that was the most awesome vacation ever. The managers, Staci and Earl, are absolutely the greatest. They make each guest feel welcome and at home. Earl went out of his way to show all the guest that were interested, a sea turtle release one night. Staci, at the end of her shift, knowing that we would be gone by the time she got back, personally came to our room and wished us a safe trip home. The beach is beautiful and basically right out the back door. The accommodations are extremely inviting but don't expect maid service because you are at home away from home. We liked it so well that we made reservations for 4 weeks next summer, but will be back again for 2 weeks at Christmas.
