This is a beautiful house with everything you could ever need. It has plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The upper floor with the main living space has gorgeous views of the ocean. I loved the desk in the loft area, perfect for reading! Beautiful kitchen, wonderful little touches like a hammock, outdoor chairs all help create the perfect vacation. Just a short walk to the beach, the perfect retreat! The owners have done an excellent job decorating and maintaining the property.
Great rental! Very close to a beautiful strip of the beach (2 min walk tops)! The house looks like it has been recently re-done with new hardwoods and paint on the walls. The downstairs children room is made to look underwater with a mural painted on the ceiling which is great for the kids! Sleeps at least 12 comfortably with an extra trundle bed and pull out couch so it's a great house for large families! I would definitely rent this property again and recommend it to a friend!
Beautiful home with beautiful details (check out the ceiling painting). Super short walk to the beach and sun rise and sunset can be seen from the third floor. Cozy and homey, the hammock was my favorite, would come back again!
We looked at the house based on prior owners images and were delighted to arrive for a week with my brother and sister in law to find a COMPLETELY Rennovated home. The new owners have done a complete renovation. New paint gorgeous hardwood floors nicely decorated and themed rooms. The amenities are great 4 bedrooms have an en suite bathroom. The views are gorgeous and you are steps from one of the most gorgeous beaches. So close to all the area activities but in a quiet neighborhood. Nice privacy and room for multiple families.
Totally recommend this for large/extended family groups! Areas for adults areas for kids. Porches surround the house providing extra living space. Pool in the back yard, TVs and cable through out the house. I want to bring home the dining room table which seats 14 or more with ease.
We had a wonderful week in this oasis and exploring all the area had to offer.
TOTALLY DIFFERENT than the pictures. I was hired to paint the palm tree and an mural on the ceiling of the bunkbed room, which is now done as an under the sea theme. The house is very clean, bright, and totally renovated. I would not hesitate to rent here.
Home is poorly maintained, dirty and the grounds are unkempt. Bedrooms on ground and second floor are VERY dark and all mattresses are hard as a rock. Mildewy showers, loose railings, dirty furniture, locks that don't work...
Much better homes in the area in the same price range and MUCH better rental agencies. Don't use Elan Vacations. They just don't care.
Stayed with 3 adults and 7 kids (age range 19-10). House was clean and decorated nicely. Location was very good; 2 minute walk to community pool and beach access was perhaps 300 yards. Grocery store (Harris Teeter) is a 5 minute drive north. The pool is not huge, but large enough. Wasn't enough seating initially but 3 more lounge chairs were delivered midweek without even placing a call. We rented through Elan and communication was good. We picked up our keys at 8:30a though 'usual' time is 10a - which is much too late to get across the bridge without sitting in traffic. This is not unique to Elan, most have the same policy, but you'd think there would be a better system. The home is located in Pine Island which I have always found to be a nice spot. Beach was busy but not overcrowded. If you take the time to walk 200 yards north on the beach you will be rewarded with lots of empty space. There you will find a 1/2 mile stretch where no homes have been built, consequently there is no one on the beach except for those out for a walk/run or shell hunting. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again if we were not staying oceanfront.
