“Secluded Paradise!”
Reviewed August 9, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I'm not sure where to start with my review for this amazing little spot.
First off, the home owner, Flip, was wonderful to work with and even calmed my nerves when the key hadn't arrived a few days before we were due to be there.

The house is tucked away from the beach, past the dunes, and surrounded by pines and live oaks in the woods. There are a couple of other houses close by, but you would never know there was anyone else there because it's so quiet and peaceful. There is an open deck and a screened in porch so when it's time to come off the beach you can still be outdoors. It was so nice to be able to leave the beach everyday and return to the shady, cool, quiet of the house.
The kitchen is VERY well supplied with cookware and tableware.
The queen bed was extremely comfortable.
There are board games in the second bedroom closet and lots of DVDs in the entertainment center in the living room if you have a rainy day.

It was unseasonably cool during our visit and we were able to open the windows and listen to the birds, crickets, and frogs singing at night.
There was plenty of "evidence" that the wild horses had been under the house, but we never saw them there. However, we saw them EVERYWHERE else. In fact, we saw so many horses driving back and forth to the beach everyday that I finally stopped taking pictures. We also saw rabbits, deer, hawks, ospreys, and dolphins almost on a daily basis.

This vacation was amazing! I can't imagine a more restful place to spend a week and we can't wait to return to Wash Woods.

This was a really different type of vacation for us. A friend drove up from Georgia with her dog and met us and our dogs there. A Scary start, 36 degrees, driving on the beach for the first time in gale winds, but by the end of the week was sunny and I was a beach driving pro! Went out on our own looking for the horses and found them twice! I have some great pics and videos! I have recommended to all my friends, and I think a few are going to be contacting you! Thank you for letting us stay at your lovely house!

“Spectacular”
Reviewed March 13, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This was just what my wife and I needed to break up the winter blues. We are from upstate NY so the twelve hour drive to paradise was inevitable...4wd road was a great experience but the sun rises were the most beautiful thing to witness. The weather was ok for early march, we had a couple of 70 plus degree days. Only pitfall was not much is open yet that early in the season..Definitely will book again as the price is right for the peace tranquility that Flip provides. Really makes you feel right at home. A+ home and amenities

“Best Escape from Reality!”
Reviewed December 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This house was absolutely wonderful! It was very secluded and private which is the perfect recipe for relaxation! It was neat and tidy and very animal friendly. It was our first time staying in the 4wheel drive beach area and we will never stay anywhere else from now on! The owner, Flip, was wonderful to work with and very friendly and helpful. We actually got engaged on this trip so it will forever hold a special place in our hearts! We cannot wait to go back!!

“PERFECT PLACE FOR A SMALL FAMILY”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Flip and Melody's house is perfectly appointed they have put so much thought into it that it's
amazing the minuet you go inside you instantly feel at home . They have something for
everybody . We where there last week of OCT 2016 and the weather was perfect the whole week so we didn't not have use the heat or A/C .We got our feet wet almost every day and i
rented a surfboard for two of those days it was fun . I got to use the outside shower the hot
water temperature was perfect. We loved that we saw many wild horses a deer and many tree frogs and at night when you sat out on the deck you could still here the ocean waves. We loved that this beautiful home was nestle in the woods but walking distance to the beach.We didn't go out much for dinner because we where so content just being where we where but there are many great restaurants in the area. We are so looking forward to planing a another vacation here with are dog Marley who had a lot of fun also made us happy to spend 24-7 time with him. If you are looking for a place that is peaceful and tranquil and away from the cell phones and internet this the most beautiful place to go.
Thank You So Much Flip and Melony
