Such a beautiful home, amazing views, thoughtful touches, outdoor grill, heaters, space, fireplace, our pup was so happy, cooks kitchen, cozy reading nooks...restorative & relaxing! Close to great restaurants, long walks, sunrises & sunsets. Highly recommended!!! There is a little traffic going by.

We had a lovely 4 day stay at Beauty at the Beach! We only had our family of 4 but could have easily had 8 more! Fantastic location at the beach. Saw dolphins our first day! Walked to coffee at the harbor each morning. Bought fresh fish off the boats.

Looks exactly like the pictures.

The home is beautifully designed, perfect furniture, almost excessively outfitted in the kitchen. All the tools, pots, pans, bowls...you could possibly need.

Highly recommend!
Tiny side note: I would recommend trimming the hedge by the fire pit by 6-12” so we can see the beach/water while sitting by the fire. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a wonderful time! The house is lovely and in a great location. Easy to walk to lots of things, and the beach is right across the street. Everything was super clean, well maintained, and exactly as described/pictured. Turnkey was lovely to work with. Would definitely rent this place or another of their properties again.

Great location, great house, hope to come back again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Courtney C. Mar 2021
We loved this home! It was well-appointed and thoughtfully stocked with everything from beach supplies to blankets for the deck. We also really appreciated how spotless it was.
The best part was the ocean view — and the outdoor heaters made the deck usable even in the chilly weather.
It was a perfect escape and our family will definitely be coming back. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This house is gorgeous and comfortable. The description and pictures are very accurate. All of the amenities were available and in working order. Everything about the house was easy to navigate and use. The house, decks, and yard were impeccably clean. We had questions about bike storage that were answered quickly by both the owner and the manager. Without access to the garage, we were able to store our bikes in the basement, which is just off the driveway. Parking was super simple. We fit three cars nicely, including a bigger truck. The proximity to the beach can`t be beat. And the marina is closer than we though (literally a 4 minute walk). The noise from the street is a consideration, but not one that would keep us from renting this house again. It`s kind of to be expected, given the location. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This is the second time we have rented this house and it was again immaculate and wonderful. This time it was a rainy weekend but by Mon & Tues the sun came out. This house is super cozy even in the Winter! Would recommend highly. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This was really wonderful for so many reasons: the decor is beautiful, it has ample room for families, it is very well supplied with sharp knives, platters & kitchen needs, and everything functions very well.

The house was nice. It had a view of the beach . All you had to to was walk across the road to get to the sand. But the road was so busy! There are cars racing up and down the street All day and nigh! The noise from the traffic forced us to keep our windows closed at night so we could sleep. It was very disappointing!

This is a well-appointed home in a glorious location. Very nicely remodeled and spacious. Plenty of room for our family, perfect for remote classes for the kids. Lots of beach activity a stones throw from the back porch. We will definitely be back. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This vacation rental was so filthy. It was disgustingly apparent that it had not been cleaned. There were hairs all over the bed linens and the beds smelled dirty along with the entire house smelling dirty. The road noise was terribly profound and even hurt our ears while indoors with the windows barely open just for circulation. There were people parking outside the rental house smoking and loitering (people who did not appear safe or trustable). The floors were so filthy our feet were black after walking barefoot. The refrigerator had food leftovers all over the glass and all surfaces; had not even been wiped. Bugs and mosquitos all over the counter tops and even the chairs at the dining table were dirty (visibly). One of the sinks was flooding so badly it could not be used. One of the toilets was not flushing. It was so horrible we could not even stay in this rental. Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT book this rental; stay far away from this property management company. Absolutely horrible experience.

We had a wonderful stay at the beach for my husband`s 60th birthday. The home was absolutely stunning with high end finishes. We enjoyed waking up to the pounding of the ocean waves just outside our window. A huge plus were the outdoor heaters that worked on a timer on the deck overlooking the beach. We enjoyed many evenings outside watching the sunset.

One slight downfall was that it advertised a Sonos speaker system in the house. Unfortunately, the app was not on the houses` Samsung pad. I called customer service and was promised that someone would get back to me about it but they never did. I did not make a fuss over it because we had brought our own speakers but it would have been disappointing if we couldn`t listen to music.

Overall, our stay was excellent - top notch and very enjoyable. Thank you so much! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

A really great place. First class all the way. The uninterrupted view of the ocean was stunning, the appliances were Wolf Range, Subzero frieg, Bosch dishwasher, individual heating for each room. Close to everything. The six of us will certainly rebook this gem we found.. You will not make a mistake here.

This is a brand new home, well appointed with everything we needed. The outdoor decks and patio take this already spacious home and give you more places to hang out and enjoy a magnificent view of the beach. It`s a quick 5 minute walk to a convenience store, restaurants and coffee shop. The house and location were perfect.
