Charming Beachfront with all the Comforts of Home!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place! Perfect size for our family of 4. Set up well to live simply, cooking our own food if we chose to. Close enough to shops and restaurants if we chose to go out. Relaxing on the beach was our favorite pastime for sure! Thank you for allowing us to spend a glorious week in your home... it truly was a week to relax and recharge!

Great location with easy access to the beach. Needs a few upgrades. See review .

  • 2 of 5

Relatvely clean older Beach Front location, but owner is trying to cut costs based on our recent 4 day stay.

Towels are frayed and have holes in them. They look like rejects from a budget hotel. And the owner made a big deal about making sure they are not soiled when you leave or you will be charged for replacements.

Owner needs to stock more than one roll of toilet paper, trash bags.... Supplies included one very small bottle of dishwashing soap and dishwashing detergent for the dishwasher. A sponge (Blue Sponge w/ scrub side) would have been a nice upgrade. And plan on bringing your own salt and pepper along with any cooking supplies. Pots and pans are old and Teflon skillets are not safe to cook on.
