Perfect Family Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The first impression you get is the view of the horse paddocks. The split rail fencing runs the length of the long drive way. As you pull up to the house, the garage is reminiscent of a horse barn including the hay loft. You step onto the front porch with the rockers overlooking the horse paddocks and enter the living room with two large comfy leather couches and fireplace. The kitchen is roomy and well appointed with everything you need to make a meal during your stay although with the proximity to all the amazing restaurants in St. Michaels, why would you. There is an eat-in kitchen and full dining room giving you plenty of room for family dining.

Upstairs is the master bedroom and bath and three other very roomy bedrooms and a full bath. Over the garage is another bedroom and bath. We slept 8 comfortably with room to spare. The garage is a rainy day savior. It's stocked with board games, a ping pong table, pool table and extra fridge and dart board. There are four bikes available for use, but biking to St. Michaels is 5 miles and outside the range of a casual bike to town, but they are nice for tooling around.

We spent many hours in the pool with diving board and pool house. We also took many trips out in the kayaks. The water was smooth and very little current. There were a TON of jelly fish when we were there, but that fluctuates with the weather - more rain = less jelly fish.

What to bring: Bring beach towels for the pool. There are bath towels in the bathrooms but no pool towels. New washers and dryers are available which makes it easy to dry the towels after use. Other than that, pretty much everything else is provided.

We did the Rescue Horse Encounter experience and the girls absolutely loved it. I would highly recommend it.

Overall: We had an amazing week. The property manager was beyond responsive and helpful. We can't recommend Halo's Haven highly enough!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home recently during our daughter's wedding weekend. Beacause of all the wedding activities, we didn't have time to enjoy all that the home has to offer, but we enjoyed coming back to such a lovely, homey setting. It is very nicely decorated and well-supplied. Keep in mind that wi-fi is not available due to poor reception in that area. Michelle, the owner, and Demetrio Beach, the property manager, were very friendly and were helpful and flexible in meeting our needs. The location is an easy drive into St. Michaels.

Great Week in St. Michael's

  • 5 of 5

I brought my children and grandchildren for a week's vacation to Star Haven and we had a wonderful time. I am a big lover of horses so was thrilled to hear that Michelle rescues and rehabilitates horses. It was so nice to get up, get a cup of coffee and walk towards the pond and paddocks in the morning to check out the horses and any other wild life. Sharon

The house was great with very nice bedrooms, a large kitchen with table space, a nice patio with tables for dining and the pool which everyone enjoyed. There was also a game room with a pool table, ping pong table and dart board which kept the children very busy. We enjoyed the pier and a daily activity was catching crabs and then watching them go back into the Creek. I just like being able to look out every window and being able to see the water. Very relaxing.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

"My family and I can't say ENOUGH good things about this house. It truly is a slice of Heaven. Not only did it accommodate all of our needs with its spacious and extremely clean rooms, it exceeded all of our expectations. Michelle's attention to detail is evident throughout the property; beautifully-kept and welcoming interior, comfortable beds and furniture, well-equipped kitchen, seemingly brand new beach cruiser bikes, kayaks, paddle board, game room, pool, and dock on a quiet cove. Perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding. We had the best time catching, cooking and eating crabs. The views can't be beat! With a beautiful paddock in the front of the house and the water in the back, you'll be torn over which way to look. Thank you Michelle! We hope to return ASAP!"
