We can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This location, and the set-up of the house, is even better than the listing tells you. We were impressed with having just the right amenities available for use and how nicely decorated the unit was. We had an assigned parking space right out front, 1 minute walk to the sand (I say it this way because you are ON the beach) and easy access to everything along the boardwalk. Beach House, Kono and World Famous are just down the sidewalk, we took the Uber downtown for less than $25 and we were able to cook a couple of meals right there at "home." Thanks for a great birthday weekend.
