About the owner: Original owner and truely enjoy my time at the beach. I have enjoy sharing my house with so many nice guests over the years and have actually become friends with some as they continue to stay at "Gone to the Beach". I live in Atlanta, Georgia and get to the beach as often as I can. The beaches along 30A are wonderful and everyone that visits wants to come back.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Gone to the Beach offers a third floor tower room which very few other houses have in the development. It provides a great get away for children to watch television while adults are in living room or provides a great place to relax and read.
