"This home is well located on the island, offers direct I/C access, and has more amenities than we could use in 1 week. The furnishings and decor are well planned for families. The private pool, hot tub and outdoor seating space is heaven on earth. The kitchen is perfect for families who enjoy cooking together. The extra refrigerator is GREAT for larger families. This home truly matches its name."

"House left nothing to be desired. Any and all concerns were addressed immediately by the proactive team. It was easy to get a human on the line during business hours. Could not find the “check out” tab on the app, but when I called on Saturday morning during a busy time for proactive to inform we were leaving, I was able to connect with a representative who was patient with my call. Will rent with proactive again. 5 stars!"

"Family of 10 ages ranging from 2 to 70 and we had a wonderful time. Loved the views from the main dining area watching boats during our coffee up until darkness. The entire home is very lovely. Kitchen was very well equipped. The back yard had plenty of places for the children to play. The older men really enjoyed watching football games from the lower level with the French doors open overlooking the inter coastal waterway. I will say thank goodness for the elevator which we only used for arrival and departure with all the gray coolers and suitcases. Great park fro play for the children and basketball/pickle ball for the older. The beach is about a 5-10 min walk and super spacious for playing. We encountered a couple situations while there like batteries in the smoke detector went off, however maintenance was there within 30 minutes. Any questions we had were answered super quick. Thanks Shelly, We Definitely recommend this home and when our family gathers again in 2 years we will probably be back."

"We loved this place, our family gets together every two years for a combination of Christmas and Thanksgiving and normally someone has to stay at a hotel for accommodations. This year we decided to rent a place we could all stay. The age range from two years to 70 and it was perfect. It was great to have the entire family under one roof, the location is great. We were able to be entertained from boats going up and down the intercoastal waterway. The view from the dining area is just awesome starting with coffee in the morning watching the boats go out and in the evening with dinner and watching them come back in. The kitchen is furnished really good and huge. It is about a 5 to 10 minute walk to the beach but we enjoyed every bit of it and the beach is super wide to be able to have lots of room and play and let children run. Also, within walking distance is a great playground area for the children with swings, slides, climbing etc. There is also a nice basketball court/pickle ball court for the older adults to play. The entire home is beautiful, well-kept and the backyard is just awesome, everyone just raved how nice the place was and how nice the outside views were. The elevator was nice to have, especially for unloading all of our groceries and suitcases and then we used it again for loading and departure. The house was beautifully decorated even had fairy lights on the stairway going up, which made it perfect for Thanksmas and there was a little white Christmas tree with sea ornaments which was perfect since we were also there for Christmas. A couple little things came up like the smoke detector going off but when we called for service the maintenance men were there within 30 minutes. Shelley was able to answer any and all calls with questions that we had to make. The older family members loved the bottom floor watching football games and opened the French doors to the beautiful backyard area with the intercostal view as a background. We would definitely recommend this to a large family, we definitely did not have any problems moving around inside with 10 people and in two years we will be doing the same again since our family celebrates every other year."

"Haven By the Sound is by far the most beautiful, well laid out and supplied, and FUN beach house our family has ever rented! The house is beautifully decorated - furnishings and window treatments are top quality. Each of our married children had a room (almost all were king beds!) with ensuite bath, and all the rooms were a refreshing oasis. We enjoyed having several living areas as well as an office for those who had some work to do. We enjoyed the outdoor area so much it was hard to tear ourselves away to go to the beach! The dock was so much fun for fishing; watching boats going by from the porches; the outdoor seating; the wonderful hot tub, and the pool. Pool maintenance was top notch - pool and hot tub kept crystal clear and clean. Thanks to the owners for many extras like beach chairs, pool floats, etc. We all agreed we could not wait to return. Proactive agents are professional and helpful."

"We rented the lovely house that sleeps 14 guest. It is three stories and is right on the inter-coastal with its own dock. My son was getting married and we invited 6 friends. I did not read the fine print. “Events, Parties, and Other Visitors: House Parties are Prohibited on the Premises. Any special events such as but not limited to: Family reunions, weddings, receptions or anniversaries are not permitted at the Premises without express, written permission by the Agent. Special Events require additional lease provisions, event fees, insurance, and/or additional security deposit. Failure to acquire prior approval for your special event could result in expedited eviction additional fees, or other action. ” I am not sure anyone would rent this house that was not having some sort of event. I called the Property Manger when I realize we would be in violation of the contract. He told me we could not have a Wedding and they would be checking on us and if we violated the rules and we would be thrown out. Kind of put a damper on the wedding."

"Such a beautiful property equipped with everything you could ever ask for. We went with 5 different groups, total 13 people (5 of which were children). The beach is a short walk, the outdoor shower was very handy to rinse off the sand, and the pool was the best feature! The hot tub also was amazing, and everyone enjoyed it. There is plenty near by to do, especially with kids (the waterside, the swamp park/adventure course, ice cream shops, and of course the beautiful beach that was not crowded at all. We rented an umbrella on the beach for the week which was also really nice to escape the sun and heat. The kitchen was well equipped, and there was plenty of seating for the family for large meals. You could hear the live music from across the water at night which was awesome! We enjoyed the beautiful decks and views all week long. We had a couple issues that needed attention, and proactive vacations were very responsive and fixed them immediately. We would love to come back again in the future, the property really has it all!"

"The week spent at Haven By The Sound was AWESOME! There are so many good things to say about this home. The house had plenty of space for a multifamily group. Each family had their own private bathroom and no one felt like they had less than another. All rooms were wonderfully decorated. The home was well cared for and clean. The view was incredible and the dock was enjoyed every morning and evening. The home was well stocked with equipment. Having an office was an added bonus for times when someone had to work. We all loved the furniture and found it to be comfortable as well as all the beds. The walk to the beach was not far at all and being located closed to restaurants, playground and ice cream shop made for a nice evening stroll. The backyard was our own private oasis. I highly recommend this house. The only thing we might have done differently is heat the pool. Even though the temps have been warm so far this summer, the pool water was a little chilly. "

"We brought our family, great grandparents to 1 year old granddaughter. The home was perfect for everyone. The great grandparents appreciated the elevator and sitting by the pool in the breeze. Lots of time spent in the pool and hot tub. LOVE the pool floats! We were able to purchase 10 day fishing license for $6 each to fish off the dock. The great grandparents spent the entire week sitting on the top deck watching all the boats and yachts, solving all the problems of the world. The yard is completely gated which was fun to play games (we brought corn hole) and let our 1 year old granddaughter run free. We were blessed with perfect weather so that certainly helped. The kitchen had everything we needed. We brought a few things not knowing but they did have everything! The home is a 5 minute walk to the beach and the cart was extremely helpful! The ONLY thing we wished they had was a cover over the dock as it gets hot during the day. Aside from that EVERYTHING was perfect and the house was very clean which was important to us."

"Our stay at “Haven By the Sound” was absolutely perfect. First and foremost, you cannot beat the location of this home. Sitting on the sound side, it provides you the most gorgeous sunsets as your day comes to a close. Sitting out on the back porch, sipping something cold and wet and watching those sunsets was truly the highlight of my day. The walk to the beach is short and paved, so easy to get to when the waves are calling your name. The house itself is very well appointed and very well equipped – we wanted for nothing. Beautifully decorated, spacious and well laid out. And the beds were so comfortable! The kitchen/living room space is large and can definitely accommodate all gathered together for meals and social times. And then there is the hot tub, the pool, the dock, the ping pong table and all of the other amenities to ensure that there is something for everyone to do. I highly recommend Haven By the Sound – you won't be disappointed!"
