"We spent our annual family vacation on Goat Island in this wonderful retreat. Doug & Sherry were wonderful hosts, the house was spotless and very spacious; everyone had space to relax and enjoy. The covered porch was a terrific place to sit and watch the boats go by, our kids enjoyed crabbing from the dock as well. The dock was perfect for our boat too. The house was everything and more, you will not be disappointed. Love this place, we will be back again!"
"If you like crowded beaches, condos, and lines for dinner or noisy bars, then this is not your vacation. If you love a quiet, beautiful, well a/c place right on the water, with your own covered pier, crabs on YOUR dock, fish off your own pier, your own boat (or Doug's for a headache free week!). It's a 3 minute boatride to your bar, grocery, marina, and landing. Doug and Sherry provide fantastic accommodations and guidance for anything you'd like. There are goats on the island, you can walk and see, and at low tide, Sherry and Doug's beach in the back is incredible. The firepit, chairs, and garden are all wonderful too. It is the best and most relaxing vacation my family has had in years. Shortest trip from Charlotte to any of the beaches too.”
