Guestbook comments from the host:
We absolutely LOVED our stay! We have been coming to the island for over 20 years, and this was our favorite house! Plenty of room, fully stocked kitchen, great location to the beach, ice cream, cute little breakfast spot.
LOTS of seating so that everyone can eat together and relax. we will absolutely rent again! Thank you!
Great location, only one minute walk to the beach. This place has everything you need. Well organized, clean and comfortable. Two bedrooms up and one down is great for a family vacation. The host is quick to respond and has great follow up!
We wanted to move in!! We loved The Shell House so much! Comfy, adorable, convenient! Highly recommend!
The Shell House is fantastic! Great location - close to the beach and shops/restaurants. Cindy was so sweet and quick to respond if we had any questions. The house was very clean and comfortable, the towels and bed linens were so soft! Can’t wait to visit again!
The Shell house was perfect for our stay on AMI in November. The house has everything you will need for your stay it was clean, beds are comfy, the towels were thick hotel brand. The location is close to everything yet quiet and private. We would definitely stay here again.
Walking distance to restaurants and super close to the beach. Garage made storing our beach items convenient. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Was a perfect beach house for us!
Great house, great location! Was very adequate for our family of 6. Will return!
We’ve been to the island for a few years with extended family. As the family grew, we needed another house and to be honest, a “quiet” house. This place is FANTASTIC! Raise the blinds in the morning and see the ocean full on. Upscale in decor and amenities, Cindy doesn’t do cheap with this place. If you want a crash pad, it may not be the place for you. But if you don’t mind following a few simple rules to keep the place nice, come here for a high-end experience. The beach is so close you can go back to the house to refill your pina colada!
We had a fabulous vacation. Amazing location SO close to the beach. And excellent communication from host!
Love ... Love... Love this beach house! Everything was perfect from beginning to end. The check-in was easy, the house is beautiful and has everything you need in the kitchen if you decide to cook... which I did :) ... to beach chairs, umbrellas and more. The location was perfect and the neighborhood was very quiet. Did I also mention how comfortable and cozy the beds are. If you are looking for an amazing beach house and great host... absolutely stay here!
Loved the Shell house. Super clean and deeply sanitized. Great style. Amenities were perfect! and fabulous linens---we "shell" return! Thanks so much!
Beautiful home, thirty seconds from the beach. Large living area space. Very accommodating for our family of 7.
I can’t say enough great things about the Shell House! We had such a lovely time at the beach. Christmas was very special in this wonderful location. Cindy was an amazing host, and the house was stocked with everything we needed.
The location is absolutely perfect - across the street from the beach and close to everything, but on a very quiet street. Just perfect!
Check it out - you will love it!
True to it’s name, this is a beautiful shell filled home, and it was perfect for our vacation. It is cozy, with windows all around, a great common space and everything you need in a kitchen. It truly is 100 steps from the beach, and it is well distributed to ensure everyone gets a good rinse before going into the house so you can keep the house free of sand and sunscreen. Cindy is a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. One thing to remember, these are COVID times, make sure you buy all the basics like salt and pepper as they are all “high touch” items.
Great family vacation!
We stayed at shell house @ , I was able to bring my daughter and son and their fiancé’s to stay with us, it was just as I remembered! What a great trip! The house is so cozy and the location is perfect! Access to the beach is just a few steps away! Every morning the house is flooded with sunlight and it’s a beautiful place to look out and enjoy my coffee. Everyone had their own space to retreat to, but there was plenty of room in the main areas for all of us to be together. Cindy was the perfect host! I would definitely recommend shell house and look forward to staying there again!

Shell House was very clean and pleasant place to stay.
My wife,Judy, and I had a pleasant stay at Shell House. We were less than five minutes from the beach. When we walked into Shell House we were happy to see the clean appearance it was in. It was well decorated and well furnished and in good shape. The kitchen was very well stocked, everything you needed was there. Also, Shell House is located close enough that you could walk to shops and restaurants And yet have peace and quiet. Not only did the house impress us but the owner,Cindy, also impress us with her friendliness and there for us iwhen we needed her help getting the TV to start. Shell House is definitely rated a FIVE.

Great location and spacious house
My wife and I have stayed at this awesome rental several times over the years. The home has everything you need and the beach is less than 100 yards away. Huge corner lot with lots of parking. The home has been updated in the last couple of years and you could ask for a better host. Highly recommend this rental. We will be back!!

My retirement vacation
My wife and I stayed for a month to celebrate retirement. The location to the shops and restaurants was great. The biggest plus was the location to the beach. Fantastic. There was plenty of parking at the house. The home was very comfortable and Cindy was great to work with. Thank you for providing such a nice place.

So happy you enjoyed Shell House. I’m sorry the stairs were hard on the knees, but I’m glad being so close to the beach was a consolation! Thank you both for being the very best house guests ever. Hope to see you again next year! All the best, Cindy
