Their house was beautiful, clean, had all the necessary amenities, and was great location! David and Whitley were so helpful with suggestions of where to eat and visit. They made our trip to Orrs Island perfect.

David and Whitley are great at communicating promptly. An excellent location with beautiful views. We wish we could've stayed longer, but we were making our way down the coast. Clean, spacious, and nice to be in a home away from home.

David was a great host, the home was much bigger than I expected and the scenery there and around was gorgeous! David also checked to make sure I received the information to get into the home which was very nice. Highly recommend, and would love to come back sometime.

Thanks for a great stay, we had a relaxing trip. Enjoyed the many walks in the area, a solid nights sleep and a well equipped kitchen.

Very large apartment with a beautiful view. Our toddler enjoyed playing in the spacious living room while we sipped wine and looked at the ocean. A quiet place to get away and take a break. Oh, and we enjoyed the nice shower products.

The indoor deco was AMAZING and the view from outside was also very tranquil. I'd spend the whole day sitting in the living room if I could. The host was also very communicative and you could tell from the paintings in every part of the house that they were very passionate about art. The only con was that the drinking water tasted kind of salty. I don't if that was because of the local water supply or something else.
