This is a lovely one bedroom apt. that sleeps 4 comfortably. The bedroom has a queen size bed while the living room has sleeping for 2 more. It has a full kitchen, a nice back deck w/ bbq grill and picnic table for outside dining. The yard has a volleyball/bad mitten net and outside shower to rinse off after the beach. We have a few beach chairs for use at the beach and some beach toys as well. It is an easy walk to the beach but if you have a lot of gear, someone could drop off the family and then walk down to meet up at the beach. We do also have an older baby jogger available to use. It is in good working condition, just a little older model.
outside shower is best for rinsing off/not fully enclosed...moreless
The bath has ceramic tile flooring and a washer/dryer in bath.
This rental is great for couple or two, or a small family that wants to get away and enjoy what the area has to offer without breaking the budget. It is clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The rate is much better than a hotel room with more than double the space. We have a couple beach chairs for use at the beach.
It is a family neighborhood so please be considerate after 10 pm. I have a 15 yr old niece that is sometimes available to babysit and has taken a babysitting course,but will need some notice to ensure availability....moreless
