Property description

Cozy retreat for two only 3 blocks from the beach and six from the new Pleasure Pier. Shell Seekers has everything you need for either a weekend get-away or an extended holiday. An outside private patio is the perfect spot to while away the hours or cook a meal on the bbq, or you can catch a breeze on the upstairs deck, listening to the waves. The apartment is compact like a ship's quarters, but with everything you need. The living room has a small seating area with flat screen tv and wifi. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the major appliances, kitchen utensils, dishes and a bar with stools for a meal. The bedroom has a comfortable Queen sized bed with a Tempur-pedic mattress and lots of storage on the side and above. The bathroom features a tiled shower with beach motif. Bath and beach towels are provided for your convenience.
