"This home is beautiful, well equipped and roomy. We invited guests to join us a couple of times, and we all had plenty of space (we didn’t even use all the bedrooms). We spent six weeks there and were very happy. Thank you, Proactive and the owner, for a great experience."

"The house is beautiful and you can't beat the view. We had an early Thanksgiving dinner gathering and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare for that. The elevator is a huge plus, not only for my 96yr old grandfather but also for carrying luggage and groceries up to both levels. The pool was great and the little sitting pool was perfect for my grandfather. We all actually enjoyed it on the couple days the main pool was a little too chilly to swim in. We rented a beach wheelchair and it worked great on the walkway to the beach. There is also an easy transition from the wooden walkway to the sand walkway. No steps or hills at the end. The only thing I would mention for other renters is to make sure you bring toilet paper. This is the first rental I've ever been in that didn't have any starter toilet paper."

"Our family of 12 had a great time during our late June stay at Making Memories. The home was very clean and furnished comfortably for both adults and children. There was even a child-sized craft table and chairs. The kitchen was supplied with anything we could need. Beds were very comfortable and each bedroom having its own bathroom was great! The back porch with all the rockers and the large pool were favorite family spots to be together. There were so many very nice pool floats&loungers. The beach was very clean and quiet and had great fishing from the shore. Chairs and even a couple of boogie boards as well as sand toys were available for our use. We had a 5 star dinner prepared at the house by Chef Anna - highly recommend! And everyone from 1 - 71 yrs old enjoyed the tour at the Wild Horse Farm Slight storm damage which occurred during our stay was addressed quickly by your crew and any questions we had were responded to very quickly. Thank you so much! And hats off to the owners who have thought of everything to help your guests have a terrific family vacation!"

"The home is absolutely beautiful and well kept. We visited when it was cooler outside so we couldn’t fully enjoy the pool amenities but they were plentiful! The ramp walk to the beach is so convenient and the views are breathtaking from every room in the house. This home is towards the end of the island so plan for 10 minutes to get back to the bridge. The kitchen was well stocked and the home was spotless. Aside from the master bedroom mattress which has definitely been well loved and may be time to replace, all beds are super comfy. Plenty of extra blankets, board games for the whole family, beach chairs, access to YouTubeTV in bedrooms, and a very accommodating layout for multiple families. We would return and would recommend to others."

"Our second time staying at Making Memories. First time renting with Proactive vacations. The house if amazing which is why we rented it for a second year. Well equipped kitchen, tons of beach gear and toys. Pool is amazing and the outdoor areas are perfect. Nice for each bedroom to have its own bath. We had an electrical issue the first night and the response from Proactive was great and fixed in a few hours. Overall a great place to stay and great rental company."
