Garden City Beach house description

This cozy little beach cottage is a true gem like no other. It is literally within walking distance to the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

Nestled underneath old live oak trees you will find this jewel located in a quiet section of the beach. Several updates were recently added to help make your stay at the beach even more pleasant and comfortable. Many of the things we offer are not found in other rental properties.

Built in 1952 by the Anderson family, this home has true 'beach house character' and it's nostalgic appeal will lure you back for many years to come.

The large screened porch offers two ceiling fans and six comfortable wooden rocking chairs. These rockers are not your typical rockers, they are genuine 'Kennedy' rocking chairs.

This particular style of rocker was first recommended by physician Janet Travell in 1955 to John F. Kennedy when he was a young senator from Massachusetts. He suffered from constant back problems from a war injury. She believed that a rocking chair relieved tension in the lower back by keeping the muscles moving, contracting and relaxing.

As President, Kennedy loved the rocker so much that his aides would bring it on Air Force One when he traveled around the country and the world.

Additionally, there are no stairs to climb! This beach house is ground level which makes it nice for the entire family, especially for grandma and grandpa! To make your walk to the beach easier, located on the screen porch is a sturdy, well built, steel mesh wagon to load up with your beach chairs, umbrella, toys and coolers. Fishermen can park their 25' boat/trailer in yard and still have ample space for several cars.

For golf cart, bikes, yard games, etc., there is a Beach Rental shop conveniently located just minutes down the street.
