“Best beach house ever!”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015
person found this review helpful

We have rented several beach houses over the years, and Hakuna Matata is hands down the nicest we have ever rented. It has every upgrade you can imagine and plenty of space for a big group. The boat dock was an added bonus that allowed one of our friends to bring their boat down. We also kayaked, fished, and crabbed from the dock. I will say that the water at the dock is very shallow at low tide. The walk to the beach is very easy. The pool is nice, but a bit on the small side which makes the beach more attractive. All in all this is an awesome house, and we would definitely rent it again.
