I am an Islander, my husband from Oregon, and we raised our family here. We've rented to 4 military families in the past while we roamed around the world and look forward to doing so again. We love to share our home and island with others. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

We discourage pets but might consider a well-behaved dog with a monthly pet fee.
