Whales, dophins, steps to the beach and a Green Flash at Sunset!

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular vacation our family of 7 had at this beautiful home. We ranged from age 13-69 and there was nothing we wished for. The kitchen is completely stocked, the beds VERY comfy, each room had it's own bathroom plus one extra in the main living area. There were beach chairs, boogie boards and sand toys, and best of all, you are right on the ocean and the sound of crashing waves 24/7 is so relaxing. Katherine the owner was so sweet to meet us at the house and welcome us with a bottle of wine. She was close by if we needed her but, there was not a thing we needed the entire time we were there. We spent our days playing smash ball, surfing, long walks on the beach and playing games on the large deck. We saw whales, dolphins and even the famous green flash at sunset one night. How lucky were we?!?!?! Thank you Katherine and your family for allowing us to share this wonderful home. We will be back!!!!

Absolutely superb

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week in this amazing beach house, I wish we had more time! A highlight was the sound of the waves at night, and the amazing sea views

Our children (7 and 4) loved the private elevated beach area. They spent the days climbing the rocks and playing in the sand

The house is absolutely perfect for a relaxing getaway, We couldn’t have wished for better.

Beautiful Views & Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned home after spending an incredible weekend at this gorgous property to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We had the best time and I can not say enough great things about our stay and working with Katherine! The location of the home is absolutely perfect. It's far enough from the noise of downtown yet still in walking distance to cute shops and restaurants. The check in process was simple and having the parking spaces included made our stay so convenient. The house was perfectly equipped with everything we needed and there was plenty of space for all of us. Enjoying morning coffee on the balcony, taking in the sunset views every night and having the private beach access with room for the kids to run around safely was worth every penny. We created memories that will last a lifetime and we will definitely return to this home.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The home has a great lay out and the views are spectacular, toes in the sand close! Saw dolphins every morning. Away from the crowds but walking distance to everything. Property could use a few updates but overall very comfortable.
