Really nice! The home is clean and well maintained. The owner is responsive and polite. The beach is right out the back door. What more could you ask for?

Great family Thanksgiving vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time at the beach house. It's a beautiful location being able to view both the ocean and agricultural land view..both amazing! Comfortable home, love the upgrade with the new gas fireplace, so convenient. Also knocking out a wall between the kitchen and living room expands the views. We love this place and can't wait to back. Thank you for sharing your home.

Gorgeous views from the front and back decks!

  • 4 of 5

Easy beach access. We loved having a fire on the beach with the kids making smores. The house was well kept and had just about every thing we needed.

Perfect layout for multi-family stay

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the ocean view from the house, not far at all to the walkway to the beach. The upstairs bathroom has an amazing shower, loved it! Beds were very comfortable and a great plus that all the linens were provided. Was glad I had read previous reviews, so I took my electric hand mixer with us...but found that there were no cookie sheets for baking?!? The gas stove in the living room didn't seem to be working, but was OK because the weather was amazing! The only draw back that we found was the access to the house from the parking area, one way is an easy ramp/stairs mix, but then you have to go up the rather steep indoor steps to the upper level, the other way you use a cart to get your things to the access walkway, which is a sand/stepping stone mix to the upper level, rather long and difficult for ice chests and luggage. Quite the workout! Otherwise, the house was very comfortably furnished and was very clean upon our arrival. The kids loved the game cupboard, and the TV in every room helped to occupy them during meal prep! What a great vacation! Thank you so very much for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: Hello Sandra: thanks for renting the house. You should have contacted us. The cookie sheet is in the drawer below the oven. The gas stove needs to be turned on to operate. The on button is located on the wall controller where the temperature is set. Thanks Gill
