“Quintessential Charming Beach Cottage”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Everything about this rental was simply awesome! From the initial inquiry to booking to check-out, it was all easy breezy and hassle free. Susan is super responsive to inquiries and communicates clearly, promptly, and courteously. We appreciated her superb level of customer service and can't say enough about how smoothly everything was handled.

The cottage is absolutely adorable and is exactly as presented online. It is in a great location with a public beach access directly across the street. You are literally steps from the beach while at Seagull's Landing. There is so much to love about this little place, but one of my favorite things is the screened in porch. We loved sitting out there in the mornings having coffee and watching all the birds eat their breakfast from the bird feeder in the front yard. Our pup, Morgan loved it, too! We placed one of her doggie beds out there and she spent most of her time out there bird watching and guarding us from evil passersby, of course! :)

Both bedrooms are cool and comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make your meals right there, including a gas grill, and the living room is complete with a large screen tv and plenty of cable channels if you decide to chill inside for the evening. There are plenty of special touches to make you feel welcome and at home. There is a basket of dog toys, games, books, DVDs, beach chairs, a frisbee, even a first aid kit! There are also TV tables in case you need an extra spot to sit your drink. And speaking of drinks, there is also a variety of cocktail glasses in the kitchen.

You can also fish from the surf right there on the beach across the street. We caught lots of mullet and a few blue fish as well. It's a lovely place to sit at night and star gaze as well. There weren't many other people down there at night and those who were there were super friendly and we felt completely safe.

Seagull's Landing is a true gem, and we hope to return for another visit sometime soon! Thank you again, Susan for making our stay such a pleasurable experience.

I'm so glad you all had a wonderful time! Renting homes on Flipkey is definitely the way to go rather than a crowded hotel with just a bed and bath. We are one of the few homes where renting for two is affordable. Hope to hear from you again soon! Susan

“So incredibly charming! Super clean! Perfect!!”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in January 2016

For me this is the perfect place to stay. The location is great. The ocean is a hop, skip and a jump across the street and the sound of the waves is perfect. Restaurants and shops are very close, but far enough away that it's still nice and peaceful and quiet.

The cottage is incredibly clean and very well kept. It is sweetly decorated with cute, charming little touches. Basic conveniences are perfectly covered.

The owners were great to work with. They were very caring and responsive. I can't say enough good things.

Seagulls Landing is a great find so while I wish the owners the very best of luck, I hope it doesn't get too popular! It's the kind of place you want to return to year after year.

“A perfect family vacation home!”
Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Seagulls Landing is perfectly located literally a few hundred feet and you're at the beach! The cottage is bright and cheerful, well stocked, and well maintained. Susan is very responsive and friendly, it was a pleasure to rent from her (and very easy). This was our first vacation home rental and we couldn't have been happier, it was like staying at a friends home. Our two kids had so much fun on the beach and on the screened in porch. Free wifi, flat screens, dishwasher, and washer dryer make this a functional home for a family. The island is peaceful and laid back with a lot of family friendly activities. Cook in, on the gas grill, or go to one of the many restaurants. The purple house was a perfect vacation home for our family and we can't wait to come back!
