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.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful. It was steps from a private beach, easily the best beach front around. The screened in porch was a great asset. My husband was also impressed with the grill. He loved looking at the ocean while grilling some fresh fish that we got just a short walk away. It was nice to be able to walk to the fish market and produce market as well. I really can't say enough about this property. The owner, Greg, was very accommodating and answered any questions or concerns in a timely manner. We will definitely be back.

Really peaceful and so close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised. The ocean view was amazing! Loved the large screened in porch to eat and hang out looking at the ocean while staying away from the sun, the wind and bugs. There is also a large deck great for grilling (really good gas grill) and for washing and storing all the sandy toys.

The kitchen is big with lots of storage and very good appliances.

The bedrooms are pretty big too with comfortable mattresses, lots of pillows as well as storage and have very cozy blankets.

Water pressure was great everywhere.

AC and heat were very efficient.

One last thing, the owner has always been helpful and answered any questions/Conscerns in a timely manner.

Overall, we are really happy with our stay and would definitely recommend this property for rental.

Another beautiful week at this 5 bedroom beachouse

  • 5 of 5

Another beautiful week at the beach. The house is next to the walkway to the beach and is beachfront. The improvements to AC kept everyone comfortable. The new floors were perfect for my 8 month old grandson. Beds were comfortable and showers have awesome pressure. Everything you need is there. The best part is the screened in porch. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. Feel very safe on this private beach. Greg is quick to reply to emails and/or texts. We will be back for our fourth year in 2016!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Greg for having our family for a great week. We loved that we are right on the beach (with small kids thats a plus). Told you about screen and you came to fix it right away. You were always easily reached from the start. Can't wait until next year. We will be back.

Thank you,



and Hahn
