About the Owner

Perfect low-key family get away
The house is very nicely decorated. The kitchen is very large with plenty of storage. The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms spacious. The living room furniture wasn't as comfy, but it was ok. The cable (TV) and wireless were very spotty, which was a bit bothersome at first. After a few days, it almost forced us to unplug, which was actually a welcome excuse to avoid working while on vacation. The video wiring was a little bit of an eyesore and may have contributed to the spotty TV reception.
There isn't much to do in town, but the location is close enough to other high-traffic areas if you want more action.
We swam off the dock a few times but I consider this more of a fishing/boating area rather than a swimming area. There is no "beach" or ability to walk out of the water. You have to use the dock to get in and out of the water. Again, not a big deal, just so you're aware.
The home uses well water that has a VERY strong smell of iron, which is something that we are unaccustomed to as city water folks.
Pet-owners, please note that the property is not fenced in. One of the next door neighbors was very touchy about our dogs nearing his property. Yes, I said nearing, not encroaching on. The other neighbor was fine. There is a WONDERFUL "mudroom" area where we kept the dog kennel while we were out to dinner, etc.
Overall, I recommend this property and would enjoy staying there again.
Nice house, awesome view!
The house is nicely decorated, including the furniture which was definitely a step up from normal rental properties. The kitchen was all new and well equipped with the basics (bring your own crab mallets). The beds were nice and cozy (note -- you do have to bring your own linens), although I would have appreciated at least one chair in each bedroom. Everything very clean, warm and inviting.
We go to Kent Island for the weekend at least twice a year and meet up with another couple who also live on the Island. Normally we enjoy the restaurants like the Jetty, Bridges, and the Crab Deck. But everyone loved the house some much we pretty much stayed there! We caught about six dozen crabs from our boat and enough fish for dinner from the dock. We biked around the neighborhood and would have done the cross-island trail had we more time. Didn’t have time to try the kayaks, but will next time. Mostly we enjoyed the deck and the sunsets!
The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because of some technology and maintenance issues. Even though I checked to be sure the boat lift worked -- in advance --it did not work. Fortunately we were able to tie the boat to the dock. We think the outlet is bad. The TV/DVD/Cable Box set up is really sketchy for such a beautiful house. Someone needs to tie those wires, put the equipment on a stand or something -- and leave directions for the three remotes! The Wi-Fi did not work upon arrival. Someone did come and fix it several hours into our stay -- so that's good customer service!
All and all this is an outstanding property that lives up to the pictures and reviews. The rental process was smooth and easy. I recommend it whole-heartedly, with one hesitation: I hate to recommend this property for fear someone will rent it when we want it next! We'll definitely be back!
Wonderful week back home
The Land of Pleasant Living
Not what we anticipated
Our biggest disappointment was lack of fish and crabs from the dock, perhaps the wrong season?
I am sure this property could be enjoyed, be cautions.
