Even Better than Advertised!
5 / 5 Excellent
In an era that's inundated with photoshopped imagery, virtually any property can claim to be "luxury" online, without actually earning that label. This was most certainly NOT the case with Emma's Driftwood Farm...in fact, this property not only met the standards it outlined on VRBO, it far exceeded them!
Our family has been fortunate to travel to numerous locations around the world, yet this little slice of Heaven in Southern Georgia stands strong as one of our favorite family destinations of all time.
After a 6+ hour drive navigating Atlanta's crazy traffic, we were instantly mesmerized by the property's entrance; the private, gated entrance, covered by Spanish moss trees, led us down a windy path to the Hatcher House, our ultimate destination. We pulled in at sunset, and the views of the marsh literally took our breath away.
Upon entering the home, everything we admired online came to life... only in an even better form. Little details that may be lost by other "luxury" rentals were not missed here; elegant hand soaps at every single sink; fluffy towels, high-end sheets, pillows and linens, night lights, high-end furnishings, a smores box, bug spray, sunscreen, fishing equipment, not to mention a handwritten note with property swag, a bottle of wine, a delicious charcuterie board, treats for our dogs, etc.
The views were breathtaking and every moment was cherished by our family; from a sunset marsh cruise to s'mores in the fire pit; from day trips to Jekyll and St. Simons Island to family dinners in the house; from visits to the dock to see what landed in our crab traps to a touching phone call from John, the property manager, after we departed, every single aspect of our visit was first-class. We enjoyed the new local grocery store, chatting with locals, dining in Darien to support local restaurants and taking in the history of Fort King George in Darien.
Only five star are allowed on VRBO but, if given the chance, this property deserves ten. After a handful of VRBO "flubs" with very hefty price tags, Emma's Driftwood Farm has restored our faith in online luxury rentals. The combination of their extraordinary attention to detail, coupled with their authentic Southern hospitality made this a vacation one we will cherish forever and ever!
