Clean and well maintained. Great location as it is so close to beach

  • 4 of 5

My whole family enjoyed the stay very much. The loft was a blast for the 3 kids ranging from 3-7 yr old. It gave them a place of their own but the adults can keep an eye on them at all time. House was clean and well maintained. The only suggestion I have to make it better is to stock some tin foil, plastic wrap for food prep and BBQ. Thank you so much for making our stay so pleasant.

Great house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We went for my parents 35th wedding anniversary. We had 8 adults and a baby and we had plenty of room. The house is exactly what you see in pictures. Jim and Sally were very accommodating and the house had everything that you would need. We will definitely be back.
