About Dena Baysden

My wife, Wanda, and I have always enjoyed vacationing with our dogs in tow. We have traveled the greater part of the 50 states, so imagine our surprise when we rented a cozy oceanfront cottage only 1 hour from our house and fell in love with this oceanic oasis! Since obtaining the property, we have made several upgrades, all while maintaining the historic character of the property. My niece, Dena, will handle your reservation needs. We welcome you to experience the beauty, peace, laughter, and love that this house has harbored for us over the years.

Dena Baysden purchased this cottage in 2006

A great house and exactly as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

This house is an all season house. When we got there, it was cold and windy so the sun room was the place the stay and enjoy the rocking chairs and the view of the ocean. As it warmed up, the little deck was the place to be, protected from the chilly wind. In the evening, the living room was cozy and inviting.

This time of year is the best. The beach was not crowded at all, in fact, stretches of it were completly empty allowing for quality off-leash romps for our dog. The seagulls were his favorite! He enjoyed the stay and was always safe with the thoughtful gates that allowed him to be outside. We plan to return.

Lovely home, beautiful beach - we couldn't ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

Morning coffee in the sunroom and evenings outside on the deck. Such a quiet area; minimal traffic. Beach is wide and clean - pretty shells and a few pieces of sea glass. Great walks.

So nice having the toys, charcoal and grills, beach towels furnished - nice knowing we did not need to pack these things. This is our third year in the lovely home, and we're looking forward to next year.

The house was all in order - having everything we needed for our vacation away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The house was right on the beach - hearing the Ocean waves every waking moment is so relaxing to me. My family and I had a wonderful time scanning the beach for shark's teeth and shells -The people on the beach were all very friendly and open to talking with us. This is my idea of a relaxing vacation.

The perfect beach house for our family

  • 5 of 5

2 parents, 2 toddlers, 2 grandparents, 1 yellow lab...NONE of us wanted to lug stuff to the beach and with Next to Heaven we didn't have to. We were right on the beach with waves lapping at the steps and even under the house during high tides. We saw the turtle patrol help a newly hatched turtle safely leave its roped off nest one evening, we got to watch surfers from our balcony, shrimpers on the horizon, occasional helicopters patrolling overhead. This house has everything you need - all the charm of a cozy beach house and the owners have welcoming touches everywhere. We were blessed with great weather in between Hurricanes Irma and Marie. The washer/dryer kept the sand out of our suits. Thank you for making your beach house available - we had an awesome time! Kudos to Dena.
