Property description

We remodeled the cottage and keep it fresh by changing out furniture every couple of years. We also change the pillows after each season as well as bedspreads. Sometimes the pictures don't reflect those changes and so making it easy to see that we do as we say.If fresh and clean is important to you then you have found the right place to stay.
The house is 7/10 of a mile from beach. Walk down our road which takes you to a nature park that is full of trees keeping you in the shade for most of your walk .Take a fishing rod and fish off the boardwalk on your way back from the beach for a fresh dinner.
If you have lots to carry then it's a 2 minute drive to the many access points you can park ,some are just yards from the beach next to the houses on the beach.

After a long day at the beach enjoy the shade of the beautiful oak trees surrounding the house and untouched wooded lots next door. Sit in the screened in deck and watch the small wild life frolic in the yard. In the evening sit at the fire pit next to the house.
Take a romantic evening walk to the beach down our street and through the nature trail. Find your inner child and explore the tree house or bring a fishing poll and fish off the boardwalk.Then continue your stroll down to the beach.

There is a large 42' flat screen TV in main living room, and one upstairs, DVD players, VCR, CD/ipod player, board games, books, videos, puzzles, deck, screened porch. Washer and dryer in laundry room. We humbly ask that you help us keep the house clean and beautiful. Our wonderful cleaning service charges a nominal fee. Please help her too.In consideration to our other guests if the house is left excessively dirty this will incur an additional fee to cover the costs of our service.

Pets and Smoking are strictly prohibited.
