Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our go-to destination We have stayed in several homes on Harbor Island(a different one every year), but have now been spoiled to this home. We will be returning to Seaside Simplicity yearly from now on. The house has a great layout and the duel washer/dryers and TWO refrigerators are an awesome bonus. We can't say enough about the pool... ;) Dealing with Natural Retreats has been another awesome experience. Their attention to detail and customer comfort is unsurpassed on this island. We realize that we are not the only clients they have, but they made us feel as if we were. They came as quickly as possible to respond to our calls(for normal maintenance) and ended up doing more than we requested! Pleasant to work with from making reservation to coming home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great House !! I visited the home in August 2016 with few of my friends and family . We all had a great time relaxing by the pool and taking walks on the beach . When it was too hot we enjoyed watching tv or played board games in the living room . We Will defiantly recommend this to our friends and family .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family vacation spot We loved the home and the location. There was plenty of room for our family of eleven. Having two fridges, washers & dryers made life much easier. The kids enjoyed the pool every day and the adults loved the ocean view and the quick walk to the beach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best House on Harbor Beach I stayed at Seaside Simplicity in August. The house was beautiful and the pool was an absolute must have. The walk to the beach was quick and easy. Every morning I sat on the balcony with my coffee and watched the shrimp boats pass as dolphin followed. We had one small maintenance issue that was promptly handled. The maintenance guy was a wealth of knowledge about things to do while we were there. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was that the grill provided was very beat up and in need of replacement. The landscaping company also had blown grass and rocks into the pool and we were forced to clean up after them. There is an extra refrigerator on the bottom level, but it had rotting bait and what appeared to be rotting chicken. Completely unusable. None of these issues were in any way a vacation ruined situation. The house itself and the absolutely beautiful surroundings made our stay near perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beach house with good location and fair value Visited home in August. Great location, best part was being able to walk to the beach and walk back to the house without needing to pack up a car or find parking. We also enjoyed the pool, and the hose/shower to rinse off after the beach had warm water! Small detail but very nice to have. The beach house is fair to good. Nothing fancy, but not bad either. Comfortable beds, crisp and clean linens. Downsides were paint peeling, a few palmetto bugs and spiders in the home with webs in the windows, bathrooms were tight and aged. It was nice feature to have a golf cart to drive around, propane grill, and we enjoyed the view of the ocean from the porches. We had some minor issues with the home and questions that the natural retreats staff were quick to address and help us out with. They go above and beyond to make sure guests are comfortable and have everything they need. The private beach was interesting. Extreme differences in low and high tide. Low tide resulted in sinking in the beach ankle deep in black muck. Could not really swim in the ocean during that time, but was all good at other times. Obtaining a car pass was a real experience. The staff at the gate were less than helpful after they could not find our pre-paid passes. Followed by an interrogation by the staff, the passes magically appeared. Overall was a good place to rent. The value was just okay, but would not be against going back if it were someone else's idea.
