Quaint beach getaway with cozy vibes!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great time staying at Harbor House in October! The sleeping accommodations were perfect for 5 and we barely left the poolside! Jan and Tom made sure we had all we needed for our stay. The kitchen was stocked with pantry items and the linens and bedding were very comfortable. There was plenty to do and many places to gather with friends. We would certainly return in the future!

Me and my family booked this house for 10 days and we couldn't ask for anything better. The owners were very easy to reach and were willing to help with whatever was needed. The house itself was just perfect for 8 people. We spent a lot of time grilling and swimming in the pool. The fact that it was a short walk to the beach made it even better. I would definitely recommend this house to someone else!
