Excellent month on Rocky Creek!
We stayed at this wonderful cottage for a month (two adults plus two big dogs) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The location is close to everything you can "go, see, do", yet the setting is very tranquil - a world apart from the busy part of town. It was perfect for us. Our dogs loved the fenced in yard and stayed away from the seawall so, luckily, no accidental swims. The home is very comfortable, nicely decorated, clean and supplied with everything you could possibly need. Julia and Alex were very accessible. As an added bonus, Julia came by with flowers at the beginning of our stay and with some delicious strawberries later in the month (she went a little crazy at the strawberry festival :)). They were both a pleasure to visit with - very knowledgeable about the area and excited to talk about the nature around us. We highly recommend this vrbo!
The View is Perfect
The home is more than we ever expected. The pictures do not tell the story. The home is well decorated and cozy. The view out the back is perfect. We explored the water behind the home and went fishing. The kids had a blast. It is close to the beaches and downtown. The area has many great places to eat and we found a few nice places for live music. Do not miss this one.
Will stay again.
