About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

The ocean views and sunrises from this house are breathtaking. Walk down the steps and you are on the beach. Great fishing, surfing and skim boarding not to mention the sea glass available, right in your front yard.
This house has a master suite with a bar and entertaining area that can also be closed off from the rest of the house, making it perfect for 2 or more families to share. The other 3 bedrooms open to the kitchen dining and living area at the opposite end of the house. There are 2 queen beds, a pyramid bunk with a double on the bottom and a single on the top and the master has a king bed. There is ample single row parking for 5 cars + making access easy for everyone. A pool pass may be purchased daily or weekly for the private salt water pool across from the cottage, if desired.
The kitchen is well equipped. A linen package is available for an additional $130.00 per week.
Cable, wifi, grill, washer/dryer and stair tamer for loading and unloading are available to enhance your stay.
We do not allow pets or smoking in the cottage. We offer an insurance package for $59.00 per week as an alternative to a deposit to cover accidental damages up to $1500.00. We are local and available during your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1971

About the owner: This house has been in our family for 42 years. Last year we did an extensive remodel. This is the first time we have ever offered our property for rent but look forward to sharing the beauty and tranquility we have enjoyed. When my dad built this house he drew the plans on the top of a shoebox and he just kept drawing until he filled up the entire top of the box. Hence the name and the its shape. Our family owns Charlie's Family RV park across the street and this is our 50th season there. Charlotte and Jerry
