it was perfect

  • 5 of 5

It is a very nice and cozy home it felt like we belonged there its convenient to everything and all being walking distance. If you stay once you will definitely come back over and over.

One thing that they do need is a few more beach chairs. but the home is well stocked with everything needed including w/d I will definitely be back. The place is very clean and maintained.

Owner's Response: Tammy, thanks for your kind works about the beach house, we're very glad that you enjoyed your stay. You are correct about the beach chairs. Our problem is that when we buy some and put them down there they often disappear, so we've stopped doing that. I think our guests sometimes leave them out overnight and the kids take them in the middle of the night. I'll give some thought to finding a way to put permanent beach chairs down there, I know it's not practical to bring your own if you're flying in. I hope you can join us again next year, have a great summer!
