Amazing time

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little spot! It is a studio attached to other units so be aware you will be in close quarters with other tenants. We had a lovely time, however and never felt like we were in close quarters.

Tricia was very responsive to my inquiries. They have a gas and charcoal grill which was great because we forgot charcoal. The kitchen is bare bones so bring along any oils and spices you may need. We cooked some pretty big meals in there but there is also a great little cafe a few doors down which was amazing for beach snacks. It's a quick walk to the beach and that sunset is pretty remarkable. Definitely coming back!

Not very private

  • 3 of 5

Inside the cottage is perfect. Clean. Just as pictured. Just did not realize would be so close to 4 or 5 other units with people. Conning and going frequently. Otherwise was very happy with it.

Owner's Response: Hi Shannon, I am very glad you liked the cottage and thought it was very clean. When you told me you were arriving at midnight I did give you directions. The directions mentioned the other units you would walk by to get to ours. I just updated the VRBO description in different areas to be clearer it is part of a triple. Thank you, Tricia

Great location for the price

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this house. It's about a 4-5 minute easy walk to a great beach (and has all the beach stuff you could ever want available). It's very close to a couple of restaurants, too, but even on the front patio (which is great), you don't hear much from them. I also want a shower exactly like the one in this house. It was huge and had fantastic water pressure.
