"Our second time in this house. The house is like no other on the beach. Typically the larger homes are built to maximize occupancy but A Welcome Respite is spacious in its shared living spaces, bedrooms and grounds."
"The location is absolutely unique and beautiful. The views are incredible. The pool area is so nice for families to all relax and have fun."
"A Welcome Respite was the best home we have stayed at architecturally. Spaces for recreation, both inside and out, were outstanding, the kitchen was wonderful, and the rooms and bathrooms added to ease of use and comfort. Everyone could have a "good room." Perhaps this means that the kind of vacation comfort that is ideal is also expensive, as this was the most expensive house we have stayed in. I personally loved the aesthetics of having grounds with beautiful flowering plantings and being in the Pine Island neighborhood where you have unobstructed sunrise and sunset views. I liked looking out on a lot of greenery. I liked the beach approach of being very short and easy to get to. I loved the stairs without railings. I liked the spacing from the neighbors, and noticed on the map that the three houses in the Station One Lane area are unusual in that respect. Other houses in Pine Island are not as spread out. I am sad that such homes get booked up so fast, so don't want my comments to be published, increasing the competition. It is hard to get a big group to commit early enough to sign up for the week you want. But I commend Twiddy for not giving a right of first refusal to the same people year after year. That would be worse and make it impossible to ever stay at a great house. We left window-cleaning equipment in the broom closet for the next renters to use, should they wish to do so. We had to clean the windows outside to be able to enjoy the view. That is not the fault of the cleaning crew, I am sure. It is hard to stay ahead of that at a beach home. I am not complaining. I hope we get to stay here again. I am currently on hold, but need to have the rest of my family available to come on the week I am holding, as it is further into the summer. Please convey my thanks to the owners for the use of their house."
"The wrap around views from this house are stunning form sun up to sun down! Also we all enjoyed the three delicious pies the homeowner had delivered to us! Thank you very much!"
"The location is heavenly. The home has unobstructed sound and ocean views. Sunsets, moonrises, were glorious. We even saw bioluminescence one night, waves were glowing in the calm ocean. The outside pool area is perfect for a family with small children. Pool, hot tub, putt putt course in a contained area with shade! The sauna was a clutch amenity. Surf or run on the nearby Audubon trail then sauna....as many times as you can. Theatre room was massive and well appointed. The kitchen was well stocked and had wonderful views. The outside porches always have a sunny or shady spot in or out of the breeze."
"Best vacation house we have ever rented. Well built, quiet. Pool area was phenomenal."
"This home is definitely not the “cookie cutter” style. The way it’s situated lengthwise against the ocean is amazing to see the ocean the whole width of this home. It needs some TLC here and there but did not effect our stay (this is our second time around)."
"Beautiful home with lots of amenities and great furnishings. We loved the fire pit and spent almost every night by it. We also enjoyed the putting green. The location is very private and quiet."
