“Beautiful weekend trip”

Brought our three young kids here, along with my sister, her husband, an two younger kids. The house was nicely decorated and family friendly. Had everything we needed to cook meals. The front deck was so relaxing and it was fun to see the larger ships go by. The kids threw a few lines in off the back porch. Was quiet in the evenings and we loved being so close to the beach. We really wish we would have stayed longer than two nights in order to fully enjoy all the area had to offer! Loved the keypad entry so we didn't have to deal with keys. We will definitely be back again!

“Wonderful house,great for fishing and relaxing.”

person found this review helpful

Had a great time in this very nice well equipped comfy home. Great views of water from both front and back of house. Loved looking out the front window and watching boats and big barges pass by as we ate our meals in the pretty dining area. The TV's all had great reception and the beds were comfortable. The best part was fishing off the back porch. Although they were too small to keep, it was fun catching Croaker, Redfish and a tiny Catfish. We sat outside a lot and just enjoyed the nice views from the front and back balconies. We had a very relaxing stay.

Thank you so much for your great review. We also love the canal traffic from the porch. Glad you caught some fish off the dock (our grandsons love those little catches). We hope you visit again.

“Great For Fishing and Close to Beach”
Reviewed June 18, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our family stayed here and had a great time! The house is very short drive to Surfside Beach and the house itself sits right on the canal. We fished off of the back porch! We also enjoyed watching the boats come through the channel. Highly Recommend!!

“Great Stay and we will be back”
Reviewed May 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2015

Along with my husband and young kids, we stayed in July 2015. The condo was absolutely wonderful. The facilities were clean. It was only a short distance from the beach. The kids loved watching the boats come in while eating dinner and breakfast. We will be back.

Thanks so much for the great review. The front porch is the perfect place to watch the canal traffic. The quiet neighborhood and nearby beach access makes our location the best of both worlds.
