Harvest Moon – Holiday in Heaven!

Holiday in Heaven!

We have just returned from a one week vacation with our family at Harvest Moon.  We were thrilled with this property from the minute we drove up the driveway.  There is lots of flat space for badminton or washers to pass the time.  The gator was so much fun to have and the trails were well marked and we even managed to spot a rabbit or two.  There is a large porch and two outside decks, so lots of place to sit outside and catch up.  Inside has been thoughtfully finished and beautifully decorated.  The integrity of this older farmhouse has been kept with beautiful painted planked floors and woodwork.  However, all the modern conveniences are there.  From the big laundry room/entry hall, to the fully equipped kitchen, to the 3 complete bathrooms, we could not have asked for more.  There were dozens of towels – even beach towels were available.  The bedding was of excellent quality and there was extra bedding if needed in every closet.  The beds were extremely comfortable and the bedrooms had many little touches that made it feel like you were a guest in a friend’s home – mirrors, pictures and current reading material in every room.  The kitchen was fully equipped – every time I wondered if there was a pair of scissors or steak knives, it was there.  The dining area was on the other side of a big open area in the kitchen so the ‘cook’ never felt left out.  Movies, games and more reading material had been thoughtfully supplied in the big living room.  We had no problem with Wifi – it was quick and constant.  The hot water never ran out, which is wonderful for large groups.  Victoria by the Sea was just a short walk away and it is lovely and quaint, complete with interesting little shops and restaurants.  Our communication with the property manager was perfect.  We always received prompt and courteous responses to any question or concern.  This is a great property for families who are looking to spend some time together or friends who want to get together and stay in a beautiful property to visit the Island.  And did I mention the lovely, huge master bedroom?  Totally want to live in this house forever!!  To the owners I say, thanks for sharing your home with us and many thanks for all the special details and thought that have gone into making this truly a ‘home’ away from home.
