Perfect Getaway

What a beautiful home! My husband and I decided to come down for the week to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. An Ode to Joy did not disappoint! Everything you could need and not even know that you needed is available at the house. So nicely decorated and situated in a perfect location for easy access to the beach. We were greeted daily by songs from the Purple Martins, a dear and her fawn, and the thumping of the hooves from the family of 4 horses...the baby foal was the main attraction, he was seen many times running (and tumbling) across the dunes and into the driveway. We made sure to put our name down for next year when we checked out!

Good Times

We just got back from a week long, relaxing time at this lovely house with our family. This place was so much fun to get to as it is out on the 4x4 beach. The beach was just a short walk away, although we would drive one vehicle down with all our beach gear in it for the day. We almost rented beach chairs and umbrellas before we got there but decided to wait and see what we had available at the house. Thankfully, there were plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas for all 6 of us, with spares left. This home has such a well stocked kitchen, full of dishes and cookware. All of the furniture was super cozy to lounge around in and the hot tube was AWESOME on the one day it rained. Plus we had the same group of 5 or 6 horse that would come hang out in the yard every day. I would come back to this excellent place for sure.

This home & location was just what we were looking for in a vacation. We celebrated many things, including a proposal on the beach, anniversaries, birthdays, etc with family. We had visits from the wild horses and a foal, almost every morning. Anything you could want or need was provided, including beach umbrellas, chairs, boards, tent, etc. The kitchen was well stocked and the clean linens were provided in wrapped packages. The driving on the beach was a new experience for us, but we loved it. Thanks for sharing your lovely home. We will be back.

Awesome House!

This house was perfect. It was so well stocked, with everything you would possibly need. The views all around were great. The horses were seen daily. The decor in this house is beautiful and well decorated. Very clean. We would definately book this house again. We have some great memories from our stay. Thanks!

Ode to Joy is the perfect

Ode to Joy is the perfect place to stay for that week long getaway from reality!!! The house and furnishings are outstanding. We have stayed in this house numerous times with family and friends and seem to keep coming back. We planned a trip this year with our own family and chose this house because of the price, location and all of the ammenities this property offers. We are looking forward to another trip next year and may very well stay at this property again!! Thanks again for all of the new memories we made at this house!

This house is amazing!

This house is amazing! It is everything we expected and MORE. The horses have come to visit us everyday. The views of the ocean and the sound from the decks are a wonderful way to both begin and end your day at the beach. The kitchen is a beautiful space and is easily able to handle the prep for large meals. The home is exquisitely decorated and all master bedrooms are a relaxing retreat!
