About Madeline Abbitt

I love the beach, fishing, surfing, tanning and just spending a great overall relaxing time. Ship's watch - coffee in the am, cool drinks in the P.M. Very romantic! Late afternoons after an outdoor shower, I sit on the porch swing and finish my book. It's a great way for me to wind down and really relax. That's me - a flatlander loving the sand.

Charming Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in this beautifully decorated beach house. King bed on 2nd floor was so comfortable. The grandkids loved the game room & the short walk to the beach. I especially loved the sword fish decoration made from a shutter & fishing pole. Thinking we may make this an annual trip! Great communication with the owner. Thanks so much Madeline.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kathy. I wish I could take credit for the swordfish but can't. There is a shop on beach road where artist refurbish "stuff". Really cool. So glad you stayed at CB and I promise that I will have a working grill!!

The accommodations were overall comfortable and user friendly. The kids, as well as the adults, enjoyed the game room and the deck. Quick and easy walk to the beach.

This house was way beyond our expectations. Colorful, clean, character and toys and games. The kitchen is well equipped from a toaster to a coffee grinder to cupcake pans. One day was rainy and we needed a break from the beach so we curled up next read while the kids played in the game room. I highly recommend Cabana Blue.

A wonderful home within a short walk to the shore. The family and I loved the deck, grill, basketball goal, corn hole game, comfy beds, and game room.

The home had a broken step but was immediately taken care of by the owner. We appreciated her prompt response!

The only sad part of our week was leaving. We hope to return to Cabana Blue very soon!

Convenient and Affordable

  • 3 of 5

We had seven family members and there was still room for more, so it's pretty spacious. The kitchen was well equipped, but the grill was unusable. The washer and dryer was a definite plus and the outdoor shower was great for rinsing after the beach! We did find the downstairs to be extremely hot. We kept the thermostat at the suggested temperature, but the downstairs never cooled to a comfortable level. The king bed on the lower level and the queen bed upstairs could use new mattresses. Overall we really enjoyed our vacation and it's a great house for families with young children or young couples vacationing together!

Vacation at the Cabana Blue

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. The children really enjoyed the game room when it rained a couple of days. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed to make our meals. With 8 of us going back and forth to the beach, the washer and dryer got a work out too. The front porch was ideal for the evenings and we all took turns in the wonderful swing. Personally I would have like to see a rocking chair. We all enjoyed our week. With my families busy schedules with work, etc. it's hard to schedule everyone for a week together but we'll try again soon. Our favorite restaurant was the Blue Moon Beach Grill. It was by far the best food, service and friendliest of all places we visited.

The grand children took surfing lessons and the older ones did hang gliding. All in all it was a wonderful time. Thank you Madeline for making us so comfortable in your lovely home.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a really great week and that you felt the house was well stocked. I look forward to my guests think might be missing and try to include that in next year's rental if possible. Thank you for staying at Cabana Blue. Didn't know that you could get surfing lessons? Where? Might try that! Yes on Blue Moon Café.
