So I would have to say at first I wasn't sure when my wife booked this house because of where it was located. I was completely wrong. After a weeks stay,I decided this is was the quiet side of the island and we loved it. Make sure you get the fried chicken at the corner mart,
sooo good. The East side of Dessert island is crowded and more touristy. We found a little beach nearby that we could literally watch the tide come in or out. make sure you bring a bottle of wine for those sunsets. As far as this rental, it had everything you could ask for. Main house had a separate wing that gave our son a private room and bath that separated him from us to feel a little special. The kitchen was more than gourmet and we used it breakfast, lunch and dinner. From homemade chowder to the kids making chocolate chip cookies. My wife and I had a private room with en suite with soaking tub and separate rain shower that you only find in the movies. All rooms had exterior doors to the outside to let in the cool summer breeze. All rooms had great beds and linens probably better than home , but don't tell my wife though. The laundry room worked out great , we didn't have to bring as many clothes as we did. The guest house was great. It could sleep up to 4 more. We didn't need to sue but, we did use the sauna which was a big hit after long hikes and kayaking. They did have another walk in shower that you could use right after sauna. I loved that every bedroom had there own bath to use.
We are already are looking into next year because this is the best find your gonna rent on the quiet side of the island. Thanks for everything and creating the best memories for my family.

“Great location on the quiet side of the island with lots of room and luxury.”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Close to some of the best hiking trails on the island if you want to avoid all the crowds around Cadillac Mt. After hiking, biking or kayaking all day this is a wonderful place to unwind and relax. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lots of space to spread out. Privacy available in either out building if needed. Large kitchen with two work spaces was a nice feature. Large showers and higher quality bedding. Quiet location yet a short drive to everything the island has to offer.

“Beautiful Home”

It really is a beautiful property. Having the main house with an additional guest house makes it ideal for large groups.

I am hesitant to give 5 starts because of a few items. There are exposed light fixtures and other unfinished areas. It doesn't completely take away from the home, but for the price I would expect it to be completed. The master bath was beautiful at first glance, but the shower light didn't work and the jacuzzi tub had a trickle of water pressure. It would have taken days to fill it. In the kitchen, we had a lot of difficulty with the stove as it is a high end appliance with no directions. Also, the cutlery and pots/pans are in serious need of replacement. Again, for such a beautiful home I would have expected better quality dishes/cutlery/etc. Beds were very comfortable and the area was very quiet. I realize you don't go to a beautiful home like this to watch tv, but with such a large living room a larger tv would be ideal. It is the only tv in the main house.
