Property description

This charming house was built around the 1930's. The best part about this property is that it is right on the beach. One can go to the beach, easily walk back for lunch or a snack, and return to the beach. There is an outside shower, a second floor deck, and a nice back yard for relaxing and grilling. More than one family can share this house and a wonderful feature is that the kids can all sleep upstairs in the loft and the parents can sleep downstairs in the 3 bedrooms on the first floor. The front porch is a great place to sit and read and watch the beach activity. People are walking to the beach with their surfboards and towels in tow and the ice cream truck makes many stops in front of the house. It is fun to see the children run for their ice creams. This property is next to the beach and in walking distance to surf shops, markets, and kids activities.
