  • Bang for the buck

    "We only had a few days, but the acomidations were great. We enjoyed the space that we had. there are essentially two living rooms with tv so the Kids and adults can watch what they want after going to the Beach. The short walk to the Beach, Pier and shops makes this a Great location to stay. Having a big yard allows you to have a badmitten/volley ball net or a corn hole game with no problem. Having the washer/dryer was a total save if you forget to bring an extra pair of clothes!! The only Nit picky thing i can say is that it is an older house, but that gives it the feel that goes with a Real Beach house."

  • Perfect beach getaway

    "I was delightfully surprised at this rental. It is incredibly spacious, with enough room for our entire family to spread out. With small babies, having a place to put little ones to sleep away from the noise is key and this was perfect. She had every amenity we needed to travel with young children. The adults enjoyed the large TV, comfortable beds, and very nice bathrooms. Clearly lots of attention to detail was given in décor and amenities (coffee pots, toys for kids, linens, etc.) Everything you need is right there. It is cozy and warm and the perfect place to come back and relax after a day at the beach. Within walking distance to a fabulous marshside restaurant and bar (the crab shack), it is also on the river with dock access. Bring your kayak and dip in right outside your door. Can't say enough good things. Rarely do we find a place for our family where we can all have space, sleep well and relax. We will be back!! "
