“Spring Break Vacation”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2016

This home is beautiful and has all of the amenities you could think of and ask for. The pool was very nice. To my pleasant surprise, the solar heating system made the water plenty warm for this time of year. The hot tub was very nice and relaxing after a busy day. This home is very close to the beautiful and scenic beach. We give this home and location a five star rating.

“So worth the return visit!”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2015

My family and I stayed at Ravens Nest in August of 2011 and had a wonderful time. When a group of friends was looking for a place to stay for a beach retreat, I knew just where we should stay. The house did not disappoint anyone. We had a fabulous time.

Owner's reply: Great!

We looked at a lot of places to vacation before selecting Raven's Nest as our vacation spot for this year. It was the perfect choice! When we arrived, we had easy access into the neighborhood. The electronic door locks were simple to operate and we did not have to keep track of or share a key. Everything we needed for housekeeping and daily living was provided and readily available inside. New furniture has just been purchased and it was super comfortable. The floorpan made it easy to be alone or have the whole family together for an activity. The beds were comfortable and we rested well. We have a disabled daughter and so we needed easy access to and within the house. We found the floorplan and bathroom very accessible for her wheel-chair and also for bathing. We had packed lightly and so we made good use of the washer and dryer. Bring your own laundry pods - they work great! Allow a some extra time for drying your clothes. It took a little longer to do that than what we were used to at home. But the dryer definitely works! The pool was very nice and also warm - like bathwater. We relaxed in both salt and pool water. We grilled steaks on the grill and baked a meal in the oven. All of the appliances are like new. The grill gets really hot if you need that much heat. Easy to use! The house is completely up-to-date with technology including a TV in each room, a sound system, Apple TV, and WIFI. Cable TV offered a lot lot of viewing options. If you have a Netflix account, you will be really happy. Our only challenge was using the cable in the bedrooms. The front room cable was easy to use, but cable in the bedrooms was not as user friendly. The garage allowed us to park inside for both security and also ease of getting in and out of the van. The van stayed cool and secure. There are a lot of beach toys and accoutrements in the garage that make the beach even more fun. We would not hesitate to go back. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever taken.

“Outstanding value, location, and accommodations!”

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your vacation home!! We had such a great time we didn't want to leave today. We had 6 adults and 5 children and had plenty of room. Your home is beautiful!! We really enjoyed the swimming pool. We used it everyday. We really enjoyed being close to everything, the beach, Wal-mart, lots of dinning, and entrainment for the kids. My husband and I even found a massage parlor, which was awesome!!! I wanted to let you know that we broke one glass and a bowl. We hope to come back soon!

Thanks again
