It was clean and everything worked. We had a glitch with our microwave. We called and they brought us a replacement. But then ours started working again. Everyone was so nice

We were expecting a stand-alone ice maker, which was missing from the house, but was listed as being present on the website.

Everything was clean and perfect. We thought we had a problem with the a/c and called after hours they said they would have someone on the way immediately however we just tripped a breaker and was not necessary.

Our family Christmases at Howard Ranch have been great. The location and accommodations are perfect for our needs. The disappointment is that we couldn’t renew for next year as expected.
Susan F. Oct 2018
House was clean, lots of comfortable outdoor seating. The screened in porch was wonderful! Quick and easy check in. Maintenance concerns were addressed in a timely manner.
Nell B. Oct 2018
There are 8 members of our party and the unit is very spacious and comfortable for our party. The screened porch is one of our favorite meeting places and we appreciate the addition of more chairs. The kitchen had a good assortment of equipment for our cooking needs AND the View is beautiful. We love being on the quiet west beach.

Reservations, check-in and check-out were hassle free. Staff was informative and courteous even though there were overwhelmed with complications due to Hurricane Nate. Rental property was well maintained and in an ideal location.
DONNA W. Sep 2017
We loved staying at the Howard Ranch House! We had a little a/c problem, but the repairman was there very quickly and it was an easy fix. Just a plugged drain. The house was so nice, but the mattresses were not comfortable. We had trouble sleeping at night. But other than that it was great.

Mechanical issues that were not repaired. Under counter ice maker not working at all. Two service calls and not repaired. Refrigerator ice make barely functioning. Cable and Internet service spotty and essentially not working. Home sits on beautiful beach and views are stunning. Kitchen well equipped.
