What makes this house unique

There are very few stand-alone beach houses left that were built directly on the beach. Of course there are lots of high rise condos but to be ensconced in an original beach cottage built in the 1950's and maintained according to the original feel, is unique.

This is a huge 3500 square foot beach house directly on the beach that evokes the feel of what family beach vacations were all about: the family, usually including several generations, enjoying precious time together. Those memories last forever.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for letting us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in your beach house. We have had a fantastic week with our family from New England, Georgia and Florida. Everyone enjoyed the facilities and being together. This is a week we will always remember.

A week of pure bliss with all 13 of our family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week with all 13 of us enjoying everything from a great house, plenty of room, and furnished nicely with everything needed in the kitchen. Only a short walk to an uncrowded beach. The water was beautiful and sand was brilliantly white. We loved the layout with the sunporch and patio with fabulous view. Only a day of bad weather with Tropical Storm Cindy. The beds were very comfortable as were the pillows. Our stay was highlighted by everyone receiving tee shirts commemorating the happy event wth all the family together. I highly recommend this wonderful vacation home.

Perfect vacation house!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly designed to accommodate several families but also provide privacy when necessary. The house was clean and well kept, with everything you need to enjoy the beach which spectacular by the way. The owner was very easy to work with and responded to questions and inquiries quickly. Parking was very good with covered room for 3 full sized vehicles. We would highly recommend this house, this was one of the best vacations we have ever had. Our group is planning to return again we enjoyed our stay so much.

Roomy, Cozy, Fun Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 just returned from our stay in this cozy and roomy beach house. We usually stay in condos on the beach. I am now spoiled to a house. MaryAnne has equipped her home with everything you need. We were so comfortable in this home. Every time I opened a kitchen cabinet I gave her a compliment. There is so much room and lots of areas to hang out in. We enjoyed hanging out in the carport as well as the nicely equipped patio beachside. It was so nice to come off the beach and shower outside without waiting in line or waiting for a slow moving elevator. This end of the beach was not crowed at all. Thank you MaryAnne for making your home such a lovely place to stay😀🏄

Wonderful huge home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this place. As noted in description, it is an old 50s/60s home with wonderful era décor. The owners were very friendly and helpful if we had any questions. The glass blocks in the bathrooms reminded us of our childhood. The kitchen is better equipped than my own kitchen!! We had my husband's siblings for a long weekend and there was plenty of room for everyone. It is a huge place. We have no complaints at all about this place. The location is amazing; on a private road but yet close to everything you need/want. The view of the gulf is fabulous and several days the dolphins came and put on a show for us. As long as you understand that this is a 50s/60s home and not a modern condo, you will also love this place. We will absolutely be back!
