Our family had an awesome stay ar the Folly house, it was good to have everyone together to celebrate our mother on Mother's day. Folly was beautiful, we especially loved the kitchen where the guy's prepared an amazing Mother's day dinner for the ladies. The host and the caretaker was very quick to our request, which was awesome ��. We will definitely come back to Folly!

Thomas M. from Annapolis, MD US recommends this vacation rental.

The house is conveniently located for easy walks to grocery, bakery, shopping, and Buccaneers. A short drive to the ocean gives you snorkeling, beach walking, Tippy’s for a tropical drink. The house is well- furnished; the kitchen is ready for cooking; the front porch a place for gathering for coffee in the morning and spectacular sunsets in the evening. The home is clean, well- equipped, and well-maintained.

Dana P. from sterling, VA United States recommends this vacation rental.

Our trip to Governors Harbor was an amazing experience! We took a group of 10 college girls to the island for a week of fun in the sun. Martha met us at the house soon after our arrival and was kind enough to stay for cocktail hour and tell us all the wonderful places we should visit while we were there. Anything we needed she had the answer immediately! The house was perfect for us! We gave the girls the main house and small house next-door and we took the guest house in the back to get a little peace and quiet from the chaos! The house was very comfortably appointed and had everything we needed . The island is beautiful and there are many natural places to visit to spend day trips exploring. The buccaneer was right next-door for dinner drinks and dancing to live music. Great trip we can’t wait to go back!
