Pretty Joe Rock was just what we were looking for. It was a peaceful private island. The most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The amenities could have been a little better. The kitchen wasn't equipped with a lot of dishes, pans or cooking utensils. The bedding needs to be replaced it was a little worn and dated. But we went there...

The experience was one of a lifetime so for this we did enjoy the place. The outdoor space was really nice and well laid out. The inside was worn and tired. When we arrived we were told that the one bathroom sink did not work- there was not enough time to fix between renters. Well both bathroom sinks were not...

There are all kinds of vacation accommodations, hotels, beach front homes etc. but nothing compares to the privacy of your own private island. Pretty Joe Rock is an amazing place to escape to for any couple or family. "Romantic" doesn't begin to express the setting for a couple wanting to get away from it all. Surrounded by the pristine waters...

We had the most AMAZING time at Pretty Joe Rock. Three of my Best Girlfriend (we are all Single) wanted to bring in the NEW YEAR in a special place and Pretty Joe Rock was perfect! We had stopped and got groceries before we took the boat to the island. We grilled steaks and lobster and sat out on the...

My husband and I spent the week here with our young adult sons. We had done our research, read all the reviews, and figured we knew what to expect. We were absolutely delighted. From the minute Jim met us at the dock, everything was just right. Yes, it is a beach cottage isolated on an island in a tropical climate-...

We spent a week on Pretty Joe Rock and had a great time! The house is very cozy and comes with everything you need. The plant life on the island is awesome and having iguanas on the island is a lot of fun. They love hibiscus flowers so when you stay on the island, be sure to bring some along....

Firstly I will agree that the house is very nicely furnished and cozy. You also can't beat having your own private mini island for a week. The front and back deck are wonderful and we were so thankful that there were loads of fish and tackle to use. On the flip side, there just seemed to be so many issues...

We would love to have these guests return to Pretty Joe Rock now. We are so very proud of the many improvements we have made not only to the home and island, but also the cleaning/maintenance staff. We even have a new professional manager!

After 9 months of planning, preparing and anticipating, we finally reached our vacation destination on Pretty Joe Rock. This little 'spot' on the google earth map was everything we had hoped for and more! The location was perfect and our stay here was cast in stone as an unforgettable memory of good times past! Starting with the caretaker (Roy), we...

We love this island and have been a few times. We just had so many problems this time. We're used to bugs since we live on a lake but the ants on this trip were crazy - thousands of them in the kitchen and pouring out of light switches and outlets in the guest room and living room. It was...
