Wonderful hosts, the Spencer's gave good advice like calling STX to reserve a car and stopping at Plaza West en route for supplies. The house is a great basecamp to explore the island after a morning enjoying coffee on the patio overlooking Teague bay and mountains, and then returning home each evening to cook dinner in the kitchen or on the outdoor grill. Outdoor dinner most nights on the patio. Truly a home away from home. Bed was perfect, fully stocked kitchen, ample beach towel supply as well. Dan provides a GPS preloaded with island beaches and locations. Excellent WiFi. Dan and Stephanie are on-site, but keep a low profile when guests are living there, giving you full access to everything, which is why it feels like your own resort. The landscaping and attention to detail on the outside patios (yes, there are a few) truly make this a wonderful property.
Top Recommendations: Heinz charters out of Green Cay for Buck Island
*The easy hike to Issacs Bay is worth it! Our favorite beach on the island!
*We went to Salt Great Pond for NYE dinner, it was amazing
*American Airlines has a hard rule that 90 minutes before flight, bags have to be checked, otherwise you miss your flight (hard lesson learned) AA staff is not the best, so get there at least 2.5 hours early to make it through. Dan and Stephanie even offered to come and get us after we were stuck!
*Cooking and grilling at the house were easy with this kitchen and outdoor grilling area
*Outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand from yourself and the beach items
OVERALL highly recommend this rental for a low-key relaxing vacation on this beautiful island. After exploring the island, we were thankful we picked this East Side rental; it seemed to be the more relaxing side of the island.
