We had a wonderful stay at Hakuna Matata. Four generations of our family were there, from age 18 months to 85 years old. The house had everything we needed. We loved having access to the beach and to the dock on the sound behind the house. We also enjoyed the pool. Everything was top notch and our family had plenty of space. We would highly recommend this lovely home and hope to return in the future.

“This house is PERFECT!”

We recently stayed at Hakuna Matata with another family. There were 10 of us in all, including 6 children. This house was absolutely perfect and far exceeded our expectations! The kids LOVED the dock for crabbing and fishing, the pool was a great place for them to hang out while we grilled/cooked dinner and the beach was super convenient. We spent hours and hours on the back deck enjoying the views of both the intercoastal waterway and the ocean (and many games of checkers on the provided checkers table). The house was thoughtfully furnished and beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation. Thank you to the owners for sharing their wonderful home with us!

The absolute best beach house ever! Clean, modern, gorgeous interior and exterior. It took us only 2 mins to walk to the beach, and the dock access to the waterway was amazing for crab catching and fishing. The pool was perfect and clean. We will be back again!

“Best beach house ever!”

We have rented several beach houses over the years, and Hakuna Matata is hands down the nicest we have ever rented. It has every upgrade you can imagine and plenty of space for a big group. The boat dock was an added bonus that allowed one of our friends to bring their boat down. We also kayaked, fished, and crabbed from the dock. I will say that the water at the dock is very shallow at low tide. The walk to the beach is very easy. The pool is nice, but a bit on the small side which makes the beach more attractive. All in all this is an awesome house, and we would definitely rent it again.
