                                                  Perfect week!

                                                  Jedediah S.

                                                  Perfect location, easy in and out from the beach and town, also quiet with good privacy.

                                                  Great place on the beach

                                                  Melanie C.

                                                  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

                                                  Deborah D.

                                                  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.

                                                  The perfect beach house. Old school like when I was young!

                                                  Deb L.

                                                  Could use some work. Wish outside shower was enclosed.

                                                  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!

                                                  Gretchen M.Vienna, VA

                                                  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.
