Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: Property managed by the homeowner and by a professional property manager in her absence. Both live close enough to be able to promptly resolve any unexpected malfunction and provide any recommendations in the area Thoroughly enjoy doing anything we can to help make your vacation one that you will want to repeat Requests for special accommodations, transport, maid, cooking or babysitting are welcome. Local chef and/or catering available for private events. Recommendations offered for photographers, caterers, DJ's and other special event needs.

Why Private Homes:
I fell in love with the quality of life - nature at its best, abundant wild life, no high rise buildings and such friendly people !! No traffic jams ever. Anything you might want to do (except snow activities) you find right here or within a very short distance! One of the safest towns in the country, where I can comfortably walk the beach at night on my own

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is located on a cul-de-sac side lane to the sea, with a private 100 foot path to the beach. The location affords instant private beach access, yet is shielded from constant wind and sea spray, and rents at more economical rates than ocean front homes. The home sits just one home from the ocean but has a private, direct path from the backyard to the beach with no streets to cross.
