We have been doing business with Sand 'N Sea for years. We appreciate your attention to detail and customer service.- Phyllis M , Posted: 06/13/2020
We've been renting homes up and down the island for 30 years and this one tops the list. Well maintained, well appointed, perfect view. Couldn't have had a more enjoyable stay.- Carl O , Posted: 06/06/2020
This is such a beautiful home - great layout and decorated with an artist's touch. The generous owners leave so many little touches to enrich the experience.- Anne W , Posted: 05/19/2020
It is a perfect house for a bunch of people or a few who want a quiet time. Very beautiful and all the amenities. It was perfect. Hope to come back soon.- Donna L , Posted: 03/25/2020
This house had the most well appointed kitchen of any rental I've ever stayed in. Because our time there was over the Christmas holidays, there were pies to be baked, dressing to make, etc. I expected to have to purchase quite a bit for my cooking but no!! Master shower was amazing with its steam feature. There were wonderful toys, books and puzzles already available in the game room upstairs. I could go on and on!! TV was a little difficult to figure out and there is a vent outside (near the window above the stove) that rattles and bangs in the wind most of the time. But otherwise, this could not have been a better experience. The operating elevator was a must for us because of the elderly family members joining our Christmas.- Renee S , Posted: 12/31/2019
We love this house, we don’t want to stay anywhere else but here.- Jenny L , Posted: 08/24/2019
Amazing absolutely perfect.- Danielle F , Posted: 08/10/2019
It filled our needs as close to perfect as can be expected and service from Sand and Sea is great.- Nick G , Posted: 07/27/2019
Great house for two families. The best equipped kitchen we've seen. I recommend calling Emerson Schreiner to teach the group sandcastle building. It was AWESOME!- Tamy M , Posted: 07/21/2019
Beautiful home, comfortable, kitchen well stocked. We'll rent this home again- Gale H , Posted: 06/29/2019

Nice home- Gerod R , Posted: 06/09/2019
Property itself was amazing. The furniture was very uncomfortable. And there were no lounge chairs on the deck.- Melinda C , Posted: 04/20/2019
It is even more beautiful in real life than it is in the pictures. It was very spacious & comfortable. Two of the bedrooms have sturdy, built-in bunk beds for children.- Lanny H , Posted: 03/17/2019
Great for family vacation- Darwin F , Posted: 11/25/2018
Best beach house we have ever stayed in, including Florida.- Nick G , Posted: 08/11/2018
Great beach, great house, great for two families.- Tamy M , Posted: 08/09/2018
The White Crane is a beautiful property. It's beach location is superb. The owners have furnished the house to a "T" with comfort in mind. For multiple families, 3 king bedrooms and 2 queen bedrooms allows sleeping flexibility. Having 2 living areas gives the adults a place to hang out while the children enjoy their separate space. We loved The White Crane and intend to book this home again in the future.- Phyllis M , Posted: 08/04/2018
lots of decks with great seating so we had room to be together or get away for some quiet time. the beach was very well cared for.- Judith K , Posted: 07/28/2018
We stayed here last year and loved the house, so of course we had to stay here again.- Jennifer L , Posted: 07/07/2018
We like that area of the island - perfect distance from town and you can see both the beach and some of the Bay side as well - great sunsets! Also, we loved all the outdoor areas it offered as well as an elevator to help with unloading and loading days. Beautiful house!- Mary G , Posted: 07/06/2018
This was our second time to rent this house, the house and the views are amazing!! There is so much space and the bedrooms are very comfortable. We did has some issues with the cleanliness of the house this time though and it has been brought to the attention of Sand and Seas staff. We would definitely rent this house again!!- Jenny L from Cypress, Posted: 07/06/2018
We are glad you enjoyed your return visit to The White Crane! We appreciate you bringing the housekeeping issues to our attention, and have gone over your recommendations with that team.- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 08/02/2018
We have stayed at Sand N Sea properties for many years, but White Crane is the most fabulous place of all. It's new, modern and nice layout. The owners were very generous in how they supplied the house, but kitchen items available to renters, with extra towels and detergent in the laundry room. Every bedroom has a bathroom, plus a guest bath. Lots of games available and superb TVs throughout. Definitely would choose this rental again.- Susie E , Posted: 05/12/2018
This is the best beach house we have ever stayed at! The pictures do not do it justice, it is so light and bright! The is house is decorated perfectly for the beach. The views are amazing from any spot in the house. The beds were super comfy and the kitchen had everything needed.- Jenny L from Cypress, Posted: 08/26/2017

The house was beautiful with lots of room for our family, including the grandchildren. There was easy access to the beach. The kitchen was well stocked with the exception of good knives and a few other utensil items. We loved the house and will definitely add it to the top of our list.- JUDY F , Posted: 07/29/2017
Very nice house, maintained well.- Barbara M , Posted: 07/08/2017
