Comments from vacationer: 'I have stayed at beaches from Bar Harbor to Trinidad, and this beach house has beat them all! The quiet location, the spacious floor plan, and soothing decorating all combined to make this a wonderful trip. As our contribution to a heartfelt thank you we have left four beach chairs. We hope future guests will put them to as good a use as we have.' The Salisbury family ~ Easter 2010

More comments...: 'What an amazing place!! This was better than a four star hotel. All the convenience of home and the luxury of a resort. The atmosphere is so relaxing and the beds are so comfortable. It's away from any traffic and the hustle and bustle of people but just minutes to any shopping and restaurants. The views from the living room are beatuiful, serene and private. The design is so spacious and every detail so carefully thought out it is just a joy to be here. I think the elevator was absolutely brilliant!! It will be a favorite memory for me having stayed here. Everywhere I stay after this will be compared to your place! Thank you so much for sharing your home.' K. Oakes, Hockessin DE ~ April 2010
