We stayed for our son's Marine Corps graduation and could not have been more pleased! What a fantastic view over the dock and you can actually see Parris Island across the sound. We were able to house 11 people comfortably and our son loved staying there on his first night of leave from the Island. An incredible experience and would highly recommend to anyone!

Thank you so much for our stay. It was perfect accommodations for my family reunion! The separate rooms with bathrooms, common rooms and the patios were just the right fit. Forgot to mention the amazing sunsets from the dock.

We are a fishing family and this was the perfect spot for us. The location is awesome. We are keeping this place in mind for future family vacations.

I gave an outstanding score due to the staff being so friendly and courteous throughout the process. They even called the day AFTER our arrival to check on everything! The house was clean and upon arrival was very inviting! The departure process was the most simple process I've ever experienced, which made our vacation that much more enjoyable on the last morning. Thank you!!

Our family enjoyed our trip to beautiful St Helena. The home was beautiful, but the view was absolutely breathtaking. Positives were an awesome home, plenty of bedrooms, home was well equipped for every need you could think of -- especially the kitchen, the ping pong table and activities kept the kids busy for hours. The beach area was enjoyed at low tide as well. The only negatives I would say are that I wished it had been disclosed that the only way to get to the bedrooms was by going outside on the screen porch, and all bedrooms let out to the screened porch also, so there is no way to get to and from the bedrooms without technically going outside. While this wasn't a huge deal, it was a bit shocking and not set up well for small children as your door needed to be closed at night to avoid the cold air as well as biting gnats. If this was disclosed prior to booking, I would have been able to plan a little better. That would not be enough of a reason to not book in the future though.

Great property, great service, even down to the little toiletries which I don’t usually find in a rents house

MCRD PARRIS ISLAND MARINE GRADUATION! LOTS OF ROOM FOR MULTIPLE FAMILIES! We absolutely adored this home! Only a 35 minute drive to Parris Island. Easy drive to Family Dollar and Walmart! I knew by the reviews alone that this house was perfect for our trip from FL. to see our new MARINE graduate. The Photos on this site DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE! We shared the house with 2 other families and it was amazing! Here are some Highlights as well as some suggestions for improvement. LOCATION - Beautiful and Peaceful. Quiet! Pure Serenity! A sure place to relax! Loved all of the Mature trees and on the water setting. Couldn't get any better! KITCHEN - Nicely Updated! Well Stocked! We prepared a FULL Thanksgiving Dinner for 13 people and we had everything we needed, 2 refrigerators (1 in the Laundry/Utility room) Was a HUGE plus! Oh but when I saw 2 wine bottle openers that just sealed the deal for me. Only bad was Kitchen Table was left dirty. OPEN LIVING AREA TO KITCHEN - Wonderful space for gathering! I also liked that there were only Televisions in the Living Room and 1st room off from Entry. No TVS in BEDROOMS is a great thing! Some complained but I thought for family vacations thats the way it should be anyway. 1st ROOM off of ENTRY - Maybe a 6th Bedroom as there is a pull out sofa and has its own Bathroom. Very convenient. Could also be a place for children to play and watch their own cartoons and videos while the adults socialize in the Living room. We used it as another Bedroom for my father to stay in. It worked out great! 1st FLOOR PORCH - WOW! The space is amazing with a very long Picnic Table that seats 13 comfortably! Was perfect for our Celebration. There is also a shower room on the 1st floor porch. This is nice as it can be closed and used privatley. There was a partially broken Screen here that needs fixed. Also a suggestion for this Porch area is to have indoor/outdoor carpet laid on the Concrete as the Humidity and Rain causes the Concrete to get very wet and slippery. This area could use a little more love and maintenance. The ceiling fans and lighting needs updated. Cleaners did not clean the table as it was left very sticky. 2nd FLOOR PORCH - ANOTHER AMAZING SPACE FOR FAMILY! Love the Ping Pong and Fooseball tables. There were many many competitions happening during our 5 day stay! The Wicker Furniture was very filthy it may have been used as a dog bed as it had some kind of bugs in it, they were crawling on us, not sure but I think they were fleas. We did not bring pets but this home is pet friendly so Im sure there were fleas. This area was also great with the wonderful breeze flowing through especially in the morning it feels so good to enjoy the scenery with a cup of coffee. This area could use a little more love and maintenance. The ceiling fans and lighting needs updated. Cleaners did not clean here very well as floors and furniture dirty, cigarette butts left on floor. I understand Cleaners have only so much time to take care of Bedrooms, Baths, Linens and Kitchen as main priority on a per rental basis but should also pay close attention to Walls/Screens/Floors/ on the Patios at least twice a month. 3 BEDROOMS on 2nd FLOOR - PERFECT! EACH WITH ITS OWN BATHROOM! Loved the Bedrooms! Not only did they each have their own updated bathrooms but they were also individually temp controlled! Nice sized closets, and plenty of linens. Only complaint in my room was the shower head was not adjustable it sprayed to hard and would like to see that replaced. 2 BEDROOMS ON 3rd FLOOR - YES! MORE PERFECTION! An amazing use of space up here. Both Bedrooms are sized perfect for Teenagers! each with its own bathroom. There are 3 twins in one room and a queen and daybed with trundle in the other. Lots of Light and Comfort. It didn't seem to get hot up there but you have to keep your doors shut obviously so it stays cool. LAUNDRY/UTILITY ROOM! - OK here is where my Husband was impressed! A second Fridge as previously mentioned. Its own Entrance for loading groceries or whatever. TWO Washers and TWO Dryers! Nice to have but One washer was not working at the time. However, not a big deal to us. Suggestion is to update the appliances here. This room also featured a big wash sink which was very convenient! A great use of space here! They also have shelves loaded with lots of big pots and pans for that HUGE SEAFOOD Dinner your going to have after all of the fishing your family does from the Dock! Trust me! You will not regret booking this place! We will be back. (If I don't BUY this property first.) Fire PIT with seating for 8!, A Hammock Deck, and Multifunctional Dock! - ALL A Bonus! Overall A Wonderfull Property. I only gave it 4 stars because it could be maintained better. Thank you so much!

My family and I vacationed here in July and it beyond our expectations. We have vacationed at many homes and this by far was the best stay. Upon arrival you see this very huge home setting in a beautiful scenic area. You walk in and the place opens up to a beautiful kitchen and living room. You have two washers and dryers which is very helpful with a large family. There is also a nice sized room with bathroom and fold out couch. It has a large screened in porch on the outside of the living room with a outside shower which was very nice. You walk up too another very huge screened in porch with three nice sized bedrooms with thier own bathrooms. Then you climb up another set of stairs to two more bedrooms with bathrooms. We were a family of 15 and pets and thrre was enough room to move around without being in each other's way. When you walk outside you are just taken back by the beautiful view you are able ed to be part of. You have a large walk out peer to a fishing dock which really is the focal point of this property. You get to see dolphins and all kinds of water wild life. The family caught all types of fish including many sharks. Explaining the way the sunsets just wouldn't do the justice it deserves. Andrew was great to work with and was ready to give any support and suggestions that was needed. I promise you it's an experience you will never forget or regret. Thank you to Andrew and Natural Retreats for such a beautiful vacation and all your help. Some photos of water and sun sets. Wouldn't let me up load any pictures of home for some reason, very sorry.

Perfect if you Love the Water!

Best part of our stay was sitting out on the dock for HOURS chit chatting and enjoying the view...The docks were SUPER and made the trip for us. Experiencing High and Low tides were extremely drastic and cool to see the the sealife up close. Most of the time, it felt like we were on a cruise ship, minus the rocky waves! We saw dolphins and played with crabs... We cooked all our meals on the grill and just really enjoyed hanging around! Having separate bathrooms for everyone was great! Beds were okay comfy... Air conditioner worked great! PingPong was a hit... Bummer the pinball didn't work. There are bedrooms on the 3rd floor, so plan accordingly. We were there for our Marine's Graduation and it was only about a 25-30 min drive to Parris Island. We only explored to Hunting Island and climbed the lighthouse. Beautiful park and worth the 30min trip. Tiffany was a great help from Natural Retreats...

Relaxing Retreat for a Large Group

Our family visited Bay Point Serenity for my son's graduation from Parris Island. We filled the house and it never felt overcrowded. There was so much space to relax and have fun. It was very peaceful and calming to sit out by the water. Our teens were off their phones preferring to be at the waterfront catching various shellfish. It was very idyllic to watch the sunset each night and enjoy the peace and beauty of the setting. The house provided everything we needed and more. We only wish we could have spent more time- 4 nights was too short! Thank you for a fantastic vacation and a perfect location to celebrate!

Awesome Home

My family and I came down for our sons Marine Corp graduation. I was looking for a home that accomodated a lot of people and was pet friendly. The house was everything that I hoped for and more. The property and view was beautiful, the rooms were very comfortable and the ammenities were extremely convienent. I would love to come back and stay when we can just relax and enjoy the area.

Awesome home and location...

We had a fantastic time at this home enjoying the sunsets on the pier. The fishing and crabbing was a blast with the kids and the fort Fremont and hunting st. Park were also a hit. We can't wait to come back...

Beautiful place to spend your time

We rented the house in January for our family to attend our sons graduation at Parris Island. It was perfect! House is great and very nicely updated, only about a 20-25 minute drive to base and the rental company went beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Not to mention it has of the glorious views, I took many pictures but it doesn't capture the true beauty.

Beautiful views!

We visited in December! The home was very nice and clean! It was cold moving from the main house to the bedrooms otherwise loved the floor plan! Very spacious and accommodating for our family of 11 visiting. Only negative there is no garbage service so had to transport garbage to solid waste and they were not open to drop off the bags.
