My family had many reasons to celebrate and staying on Melody Island made it more especial! e arrived and Mike helped us get all settled. He gave us tuxedo service and a smile. The island was beautifully groomed. The lookout area was my favorite since I am such an early riser. I could watch the sunrise peacefully as well as watching the dolphins dancing in the water. I felt like this was my private castle with me observing nature at its best. We only wish we could return to watch the eagles nest on the bird tower by look out deck! Each room had its own private balcony which was very nice at the end of the evening to wind down.
The home was decorated beautifully and every corner had little touches with attention to detail. Kitchen was very nice with high end appliances. The breakfast bar and seating area was very open with lots of counter space. The kitchen had a porch attached to it as well as a wrap around deck for dining and living room area. All of the bedrooms were beautifully furnished. Of course, my favorite was the master bath with oversized tub and shower.
The pool area was clean and furnished with oversized lounge chairs with plenty of seating. We had a few bonfires, across from pool and relaxed on oversized hammock. Mike was very accommodating. Whenever we needed anything, he would go to store and delivered with a smile. He took us to a few restaurants during our stay and he seemed very happy to help us make this trip special.
We really loved it here and didn't want to leave. We look forward to returning again and again as long as it is still available! With teenagers and adults, we were all thrilled to experience this beautiful island. There is an area where weddings are performed and I can only imagine how beautiful that must be! FIVE STARS! *****
