I was amazed at how great this house was. The pictures didn't do it justice. Super roomy, great for our group of 15 (9 girls under the age of 11 and 6 adults). Spacious, well laid out. Loved the location. It was so peaceful, I wish we hadn't had such a full schedule. It would have been nice to be able to just sit and enjoy the house. Highly recommend this property. Grill was a nice surprise that we used with ease. Pool table, games, dvds- it's all there. Kitchen was well stocked, but couldn't find a hand-held mixer. The tv in the main living room was hard to use due to a broken remote (we never could get a dvd to play because of this). That was really my only problem. (Let me note that we didn't try to contact the owners about this because it was late at night and not necessary.) Great selection of glasses, plates, and silverware for large groups! No paper ones needed. All in all, I would get this property again tomorrow. I LOVED it! Thank you, thank you!

An Outstanding Rental Home

  • 5 of 5
I rented this property while I was in Savannah for my son's wedding. We loved it and can't wait to rent it again. We held the Rehearsal Dinner in the dock house. The house was so spacious. The beds were very comfortable, and the house came with so many ammenties. My parents are older and it was perfect for them since everything is on one level. My children, parents, siblings, nieces and nephews have all asked when we can go back.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about the whole experience. We had 20 adults and 10 children under 8 years old, a total of 30. The pictures do not do justice to this property. We had three large tables and 30 folding chairs delivered and ate our evening meals together set up on the lawn by the river and it was wonderful. Mrs. D was terrific to work with and any little thing we needed help with were handled immediately. This was the perfect setting for an intimate family reunion. I do recommend you bring extra towels. The children loved hunting crabs while the tide was out. Everything was nearby, groceries, beach, restaurants, and even CVS minute clinic for a sick grandchild. We highly recommend renting this property and enjoying every minute of the beautiful sunsets.

Beautiful Home, Outstanding Value

  • 5 of 5
Don't let the outside fool you, the inside of this home is wonderful! The pictures just don't do this home justice. 5 large bedrooms, a fantastic kitchen, den, mud/laundry room, pool table, etc. You can't beat it for price or location, and it's pet friendly. It is off the beaten path but yet close to Savannah for the restaurants, and shopping. It is quiet and peaceful on the river, with beautiful sunsets. The owners are easy to work with and are very pleasant. My group of 10 adults highly recommend this rental (although I really want to keep it a secret!).

Everything We'd Hoped For!

Everything We'd Hoped For!
  • 5 of 5
Our family had not been together for many years after my grandparents had died. We talked about it, but things just didn't seem to work out....that is until we found this special little spot on Wilmington Island! Growing up, we all used to gather at a lake house my grandparents owned. This place was all it was advertised to be and more! We found our perfect place for our family reunions! We couldn't believe the beauty of the view and the house that was perfectly laid out for our large gathering. (We totalled 24, from all parts of the country) We did spill over to the apartment for an evening. The owners worked with us and made the rental process easy and seamless. Even invited us to bring our boats for some fishing and offering pots for the Low Country Boil.

There's plenty of room at the house to be together or move into small groups. We had a great time fishing off the pier and just hanging out on the water. Cooking in the large open kitchen or in the backyard on the gas grill was a plus! We found everything we needed at the local Kroger and prepared all of our meals at the house. We did take a morning away for some to head over to the beach at Tybee, while others headed to River Street for some sightseeing. All within easy driving distance. Then we were back for our first annual Low Country Boil. We left our recipe in the kitchen drawer, for any of you wanting a true southern coastal dining experience!

I highly recommend this for large families or gatherings. In fact have already done so! We'll be back next year for the Second Annual Family Reunion,,,can't wait! C'mon down, you're in for a treat!

Bring a Kayak

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at this property. It's right on the river ... actually just a few steps, you can sit in the living room and watch a thunderstorm cross the river and it's spectacular.

Our group of 21 brought 8 kayaks to share. If you time it right (by checking the tide schedule) you can kayak out with the tide, stop for a snack at the marina, then kayak back with the tide also. The water is really nice, after tying back up jump in to cool off.

Louise worked really well with us and she was eager for us to have a happy stay, which we did. Be sure to bring towels because they are not provided. We forgot this and Louise helped us out with her emergency stash; but bring your own, it's much easier.

We enjoyed lunch at the Crab Shack on Tybee, it was really good. A highlight was the Savannah Theater production of "Savannah Live!," the whole group had a great time there.

Our group of 21 was spread out among the three houses. We had 19 adults and two kids. That was about right for adult sleeping. If you had a bunch of girl scouts that could double up on the queen beds you could get 36 on the property; but don't expect to get 36 adults in here and maintain any privacy.

Really good value, dollar wise, for a week's stay at a gorgeous location close to many fun activities. I highly recommend this property. Enjoy!
