Wonderful hosts. Great for family beach retreat.

  • 5 of 5

The house was charming and the courtyard was awesome to sit and hang out in with the whole family. Kitchen was easy to navigate with updated appliances. Beds were extremely comfortable. I would rent here again.

Perfect Beach Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay's quaint and cozy. If you need an up to date modern corporate type space this isn't the place for you. For us, it was all about being together, cozy and intimate. Each night we walked the few minutes down the path to watch the sunset...very close to stores and whatever else you may need.

Great beach access

  • 5 of 5

A real beach cabin! Many beds and bathes and great old school water hog showers. Nice beach access. Patio could use lights. Lots of charm.

Quite out of date

  • 3 of 5

The place is pretty run down, especially in the bathrooms.

Also the mattresses are more like hammocks, too soft.

Owner's Response: Our house was built in the early '30's and as a result, the bathrooms, bedrooms, closets, and kitchen are smaller than in a house built today. The house is a charming cottage and we make a point to make sure the appliances and furnishings are up-to-date. But the house is not for everyone. It's a beach house, not a new home. If you are looking for a family vacation in a secret hide-a-way resort, in a beach cottage, then this is a good bet. We've made a point to keep the house updated and clean. We replaced all the mattresses last year. And, in order to make the house more enjoyable, we upgraded the front bedroom to a king bed, instead of a queen. The new king is a "pillow-top" mattress which is supposed to be better, but it turns out a pillow-top is softer than a traditional mattress. It may not be to everyone's liking - as seen by this guest review. I'll get some more feedback from this summer's guests and if it's too soft, we will make a change. As far as the comments about the bathroom, we did replace the toilets the week before this guest's arrival and, surprise, one of the new toilets was a different size than the previous one. We hung up a decorative cloth on the wall behind the toilet until the painter can touch up the paint. We do our best to make our house comfortable and enjoyable for our guests and appreciate the feedback. We look forward to continuing to make improvements in the future.
