4/5 Good

Cherry island
It was a beautiful property and setting yet somethings were missing such as correct wifi password and hot tubs. Also no one did not greet us at the boat dock when we were checking in. We loved the entire household design and beach. It was good that Kayaks, Camões and SUP boards were provided as we used them everyday. The white sand beach was great for our toddler who loved building sand castles and the firepit was in the perfect place. Overall it was a good trip just some promised amenities and services were lacking.
