I rented Alexis's place as a gift to my daughter, who was newly married. She and her new husband just loved it, both the house itself and also Mayne Island. It was a perfect fit, and after hearing about it I think my wife and I won't be far behind!

We just left and are already planning our trip back! The property was better than expected and so so beautiful. The animals made it a little more fun as well! Close enough to everything yet tucked away in a little farmland. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
