"The house was the perfect setup for kids of all ages, especially young kids. Having the pool as an option during naptime or lunchtime made the entire trip that much more fun. The top locking gates around the pool were also reassuring when thinking about kids. We also loved the kitchen, anything we could have ever dreamed of was there and it was organized in a very use friendly way. Twiddy was easy to contact and very helpful once we were at the house. Thanks to the owners and Twiddy for a great vacation!"

"great location away from it all. Home had everything and more. Lots of appliances and beach needs to fill all the gaps. Home provided a comfortable place to go to get out of the sun and to hang out at the end of a long beach day. Pool and hot tub were perfect and the neighborhood horses seemed to enjoy the lot. Definitely want to come back here again!"

Kelsey   ·  Stayed September 2022

"R and R was a beautiful home, with an even more beautiful view! Lots of room to do what we wanted. Many decks so we could enjoy all of the views. Loved the fact it felt like a private beach when we went out. We were far enough North on the beach that it was just the renters/homeowners by the water. The kitchen was really stocked with everything we needed to cook/bake with. The pool was great for the days we couldn't go to the ocean because of the waves."

"The home was new, clean, fresh and welcoming, we settled right in after a rough travel day and a medical emergency with one of our kids."

Stephen   ·  Stayed July 2022

"Location! The house layout was perfect for our needs. The home is relatively new and it has a warm, welcoming, and modern feel to it. The art work in the home is exceptional and it definitely added to the overall ambiance. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped, the interior furniture was very comfortable, and the pool area was lovely. The decks and exterior furniture enhanced our outdoor experience; great views, gentle breezes, easy access, and comfortable seating. Last but not least, the wild horses grazing in our yard were delightful."

"We love this house ! Has everything we needed and more ! We seen wild horses also seen dolphins. Collected sea shells."

Mike   ·  Stayed April 2022

"Spectacular views of the Atlantic. Proximity to beach. Less motor vehicle traffic way up north. Beautiful kitchen. Heaters in bathroom. Tall chairs on top deck to see over the railing. Good tap water. Tastefully decorated."

Gina   ·  Stayed October 2021

"This was our second time staying at R&R and it was just as amazing as last time! The house is gorgeous and well-stocked. We stay off-season and have most of the beach to ourselves. We like watching the fisherman, wild horses, dolphins, and just sitting back and listening to the ocean. Pro-tip for future guests: bring an extra trash bag and dishwasher tabs. Twiddy provides 2 trash bags but they are kind of flimsy. They also provide 1 dishwasher tab but if you've got a large group, bring extra. I also stick 2 Tide pods in a snack-sized Ziploc because they have a front load washer and dryer and no one wants to drive 7 hours home with wet swimsuits in their luggage."

Sharon   ·  Stayed October 2021

"We absolutely love this home and after 10 years of renting we are hoping to rent it next year for the 3rd year in a row!"

Thank you for the compliment and for being a repeat renter. So glad you love the house. If there are any improvements, feedback is always welcome.
Richard   ·  Stayed August 2021

Sean   ·  Stayed May 2021

"The house was great. The layout, the kitchen , the views all were fantastic. Kitchen was well stocked with all utensils and equipment. Only draw back was we couldn't get hot tub started, and tv shut off day before we left. Called Twiddy about hot tub but didn't get service visit. We look forward to another stay at R & R"

Jorge   ·  Stayed April 2021

"This home was the perfect retreat for our family and pets. Clean, modern well equipped and the view.... will definitely recommend it to friends."

SHARON R   ·  Stayed March 2021

"R & R home was absolutely gorgeous with breath taking views of the ocean. the homes' kitchen is well equipped with all major & counter top appliances that you can think of, including an air fryer. Don't bother taking bags of ice... there is an ice maker that works wonderfully. Tastefully decorated with clean rooms & lounging areas with plenty of space for everyone. There are a few board games, however you may need to bring your own. the only area of improvement is with bed linen. Some of them are worn-out with stains. I was able to find extras in the closets."

"Great location to rest and relax! Well appointed with lots of necessary kitchen gadgets; beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds. Twiddy- thank you for the cooler and starter TP and paper towels...would have been great if you included salt and pepper."

Sharon   ·  Stayed October 2020

"R and R was fantastic!! Our all time favorite house in the 4X4 area!!"

Shelly   ·  Stayed October 2020

"We really enjoyed our week at R & R. Excellent floor plan, spacious bedrooms, huge well stocked kitchen with lots of cabinet space. Master bedroom is full of light which allows for great viewing of the beach but you need a night mask if its a full moon! Living room is comfortable and has great views of the beach. Entire home is decorated beautifully. Decks have great views...could use a few comfy chairs and needs a table for outdoor dining. Would be great if owners can build a wooden walk to the beach. There are no books, movies or games as this is the homes 1st year...that kind of stuff generally takes time to build up so be prepared to bring your own or with the smart TV's that you can stream Netflix, Disney + etc."

Kathy   ·  Stayed September 2020

"This home was fabulous! Everything was so nicely done. We really enjoyed our week there and will be coming back again!"

Nicole   ·  Stayed August 2020

"This home was absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful views and so close to the ocean. The home was perfectly equipped and the decor was amazing! The pool and hot tub were perfect for 2 families but we definitely could have fit a third! Would definitely stay here again!"
