Secure storage for kayaks in locked garage

  • 5 of 5

My family had a delightful time in this cottage. In addition to being right on the ocean and in a great location, we were glad to have plenty of room in the garage area to safely store our kayaks. To be honest, we were not even thinking about this feature during our rental search, but now that we know it is available, this is where we will return to. The garage area is on the ground level directly accessible from the driveway.
