Cute and quaint and within walking distance to everything!

The property is great. Cute, plenty of space, roof top deck can’t be beat. Just a couple blocks from the beach, shopping and food. Will stay again!

Perfect location for family surfing adventure

  • 4 of 5

We loved our pre-Christmas vacation at the Flying Bridge in OB. With barely more than a block to walk to the beach and the OB Shed Surf Shop, our two families spent lots of time surfing, boogie boarding, and walking barefoot everywhere. Most days, we didn't even use our rental car at all. It was especially nice to relax on the rooftop deck and keep an eye on the waves throughout the day.

The house has everything we needed: full kitchen, plenty of bath & beach towels & bedding, Netflix on the big screen TV, washer/dryer. The in-house beach gear is pretty worn out from lots of use in the sun and salt, but we rented boards and wetsuits for the week from Bird and Jackson at the OB Shed.

Dad would get up every morning for a dawn patrol surf, and the kids would all hit the waves in the late morning and afternoon. Watch out for stingrays!

The only drawback to the property is the single bathroom, as our party of 7 had to carefully choreograph our daily ablutions. You had better know your roommates pretty well!

All in all a wonderful time! Thanks to Sarah for timely responses and advice prior to the trip.

Two steps from the beach, a bodysurfer’s paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW sums it up!

Leaving the house bare foot, wetsuit in and bodysurf under the arm... the perfect spot!!!

The house is comfy, clean, just big enough...

Wifi’s perfect, kitchen well equipped, plenty of beach towels!!!

The beach gear could be upgraded, no functional chair... but we were either surfing or walking... or sleeping on the beach!!!

SeaWorld was great.... didn’t do much else, the beach and location were PERFECT!!!

We’ll be back!!!

Wonderful rooftop deck view with many extras for adults and kids. Very cool and unique bedrooms and bathroom. Everything we needed for cooking, playing or relaxing. An awesome place for any families looking to vacation near the beach.

Ocean Beach Gem

  • 5 of 5

I grew fond of this beach home after five days. To access the home was great for security. It's location was not on main streets thankfully and inside it had it's own comfortable design appeal. The Groves have done a nice job keeping the place ready for a variety of guests and their styles. Other than the passing by of airplanes overhead, this house beckons to offer more.

Great Place to stay, convenient location, and kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our trip here. Short walk to the beach and restaurants. Well maintained home and great for those with kids. Travelling with a little one, we especially appreciated the pack and play and booster seat that was available for use. Everything is as advertised.
