4/5 Good

Great stay!
We enjoyed our time!

5/5 Excellent

TV. Too small. Golf cart needs to be upgraded.
Charming, but probably could use bedside tables.....we had to put phones and reading materials on the floor. Needed lamps by bed. Overall the room too small for the king bed. We left a day early because of above. Location is great... love BHi.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect getaway
The little cottage was perfect- very comfortable and clean! The location was great. We were in the middle of everything- so much fun. We had a great time and would highly recommend!!

5/5 Excellent

Great getaway on the marina!
Just stayed for a long weekend, everything was amazing. The place was absolutely perfect for the two of us to wind down. Coffee on the marina, no matter if it was chilly or warm we could watch all the different boats come in and out from the unit or from the porch. Hugh the owner was fantastic to coordinate with....the golf cart was a huge hit as we enjoyed all three beaches at BHI. The bed was fantastic, the shower was hot, I could go on and on. Thanks Hugh for sharing!
