Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The newly remodeled beach cottage is still “rustic”; it is basically the same as when my father built it with the addition of a few modern conviences. Its charm is the view from the front porch. If you are looking for luxury or spacious accommodations, it is not for you. It has a living area with cable TV. A dining table that seats four is located in the living area, with seating for two more at the kitchen counter. The kitchen is small but functional with dishwasher & microwave. The back bedroom has two twin beds. The bathroom separates the bedrooms, and like the kitchen it is small but functional. The front bedroom has a queen bed and TV. It has central air, with new ductwork in 2015. There is a washer and dryer in the garage. Parking for up to three cars is available at the side of the house, the garage is not available for parking.

Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Like Mr. Miller said, if you are looking for big and luxurious/fancy, this is not the place. But, if you are looking for directly on the beach, conveniently located to town/restaurants, and pet friendly, then this IS it.

The porch is the charm of this cottage.....perfect for your morning coffee. Also, Mr. Miller has great suggestions for restaurants, car washes, dog parks, etc. 👍?
