The beach is at your doorstep, literally! Loved having such amazing beach access. The enclosed outdoor shower was convenient and appreciated. The kitchen is well equipped. There are lots of books, games and beach equipment available for use also. The house is “rustic” but well maintained. The AC kept us nice and cool. It was enjoyable to sit on sun patio and gaze at the beach or the stars. The only draw backs: mattress in room that was oceanfront did not provide a restful night. The mattress was uneven and saggy. Washer was broken upon arrival. Company attempted to fix on Thursday with no luck. Despite those drawbacks we would recommend this “rustic” gem. Thank you to the homeowners for sharing their house.

The ocean front view here is the best we have ever had. The kids enjoyed the bunk room and the great books and games.

This house was closest to the beach in the area and had all what we needed to make it a great trip! There were some sanitary concerns we had but it was still a pleasant experience. The washing machine at the property did not work, unfortunately. We had to call to report and after a couple days, call again when it wasn’t addressed. Someone was finally sent out but unfortunately didn’t attempt to fix so we had to purchase a ton of clothes as we didn’t plan to pack as much clothing expecting to have a washing machine available. We thought they home was very spacious and felt at home there.
Manager response:
Hi, Michele! We sincerely apologize for the disruption the washing machine caused to your travel plans. It took some time to find an appliance tech with the needed parts to repair it, but it is good to go now. Thank you!

This oceanfront house was perfect for our little family`s winter getaway. The beach access is ideal. We loved watching the sunrise and the sunset, right from the living room. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need. We hope to return in the warmer months!
