Beautiful location and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time this weekend. The house was beautifully appointed. We especially appreciated the fully-stocked kitchen. We had everything we needed to cook delicious meals--including sharp knives! The location can't be beat. Easy to get to and right on the water. We saw eagles, the kids played on the beach, and we had delicious s'mores at the fire-pit right out front. The kids loved the bunk-beds and the yard.

We stayed here for a week and loved it! Nice and spacious and the views were amazing! We love to crab and while we didn't get a huge bounty we had enough to bring back home and share with our friends. Well stocked with basic amenities and toys for sand fun for the kids. Clean and well taken care of. We would definitely stay here again!

Very nice home on a beautiful sand beach. Plenty of sleeping areas and bathrooms. Equiped with everything you need, indoors and outdoors. Just bring food and beverages. Stores and things to do within a couple of minutes. We were comfortable and had a great time. We would go back.

Great Place to Get Away with Family & Friends

  • 5 of 5

Overall, an exemplary beach rental experience. Great beachfront access for kayaking and splashing around in the tide. Lots of room to cook, play games and talk, along with away space for naps or quiet time. Well furnished with lots of convenient amenities. Clean and welcoming. We'll probably be back again at some point.

Perfect setting with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

This home was so inviting that you really almost feel as if they have invited you to be part of their family! Little touches like the invite to use their sugar if need be, and the abundant "welcome Basket" with wine!! That was a first! Even the local neighbors welcomed us the moment we appeared outside on the beach. You truly can not get a better beach location. Direct foot access to the sand and water could not be better! The rooms are perfectly set for kids and adults alike. And the beds are SO cozy! Thank you so much for opening your home. We can not wait to come back!
