Has everything you need for a perfect beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities to cook a full meal. Having a regular coffee pot and Keurig both in kitchen was a big help to a picky bunch of coffee drinkers in our family. We were glad for the two refrigerators to accommodate food and drinks. Pool and hot tub were clean and very enjoyable. Nice sunset view from the hot tub. The beach is a very short walk. Beach was very clean and not crowded. (first week of June that is) The only problem we had was the back deck has wires running horizontally from post to post and our two small 1 year old grandsons could easily slip between the wiring and fall through. (picture shows wooden vertical slats but that must have been changed since the pic was taken) You would no problem at all if children were not really small though. All our interactions with the owner were very pleasant, he was patient and accommodating in answering all of our questions prior to arrival. The maintenance fellow as also a very nice helpful young man. We loved it and would definitely stay here again and likely will!

We had the time of our lives!

Perfect place for our large family and pups. A very short walk to the beach. Short drive to everything else. All the stuff we needed was there waiting for us. Can’t wait to do it again!

Charming beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this charming beach getaway. Enough space for our extended family. Just a short walk over the dunes to the beach for great shell hunting or do a little kayaking in the ICW right off the dock. The accommodations were clean and spacious. Loved the hot tub and tiki bar. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again soon.

The Unicorn of Beach Houses

  • 4 of 5

I've searched up and down the coast for a beachfront house that also has a boat dock, pool and hot tub. There are not many but this one seems to be the best to me. It's casual and relaxed, not luxurious but ample comfort and convenience, even if there is a little "water bug" problem. It would be perfect if you could see the beach better from like a crow's nest or something, but there really isn't much to complain about. 8/10 - Would rent again.
