Great place on the beach

  • 4 of 5

The outside doesn't look appealing but the interior is great! Very modern appliances in the kitchen. The screened in porch is wonderful and so is the deck. Great views of the ocean from the house.

Another lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

While the weather wasn't perfect, our time with family was priceless. The high end appliances and elegant bathroom fixtures make the house even more special. The screened in porch is my favorite room. Outdoor shower a welcome addition. We did miss the dryer, especially with all the rain! Thanks for another great vacation.

Owner's Response: After 17 years of service on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 the property's GE clothes dryer stopped working without warning. It was the oldest appliance in the property at the time and one of the original appliances at the property when we took over stewardship of the property. That day we ordered a new GE clothes dryer from Millmans Appliances in Lewes, Delaware. On Tuesday, September 19, 2017 Millmans Appliances installed the new dryer in place of the one that stopped working. The outage was enormously disruptive, spanning four weeks and effecting five different tenants.

consistent happiness

My family and I enjoyed another wonderful week at this property. This was our 4th/5th summer staying here. We felt comfortable, safe, and happy to be in this family-friendly beach house. We've already booked it for next summer!

Great family vacation at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at the beach. The cottage fit our needs perfectly. The bedrooms were all good sizes and very comfortable and having individual air conditioner units downstairs made the bedrooms pleasant to sleep in. My grandchildren loved being able to play on the beach before dinner and we loved being able to eat dinner together in the screened in porch. We had a small issue with the garbage disposal and when we called Greg he had a plumber there within a half hour and it was fixed. I loved the location and size of this cottage and plan to come back next year.

It is all about the proximity to the beach and the view. This is a renovated older beach cottage. We enjoyed the screened in porch, gas grill & ping pong table. Reasonable walk to town. We liked the private community and less crowded beach. Most of the home has been nicely renovated and family artwork has been use in the decor. Some of the furnishings are showing some wear and tear.
