Amazing space!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic time at the beach house. The floorplan is perfect for large families with kids who can play and the bunkroom is ideal! The kitchen had everything we needed and was better stocked than any condo/house I've ever stayed (i.e. plenty of large pans/skillets and utensils). The beds are super comfortable and the decks and view can't be beat. The linen service was delivered by the time we checked in. Happy to be just a couple of minutes from The Big Store, which had everything we needed. We bought most of our groceries on our way, but this was a fantastic option for all the little things we forgot. The owner was super responsive answering any questions throughout our stay. We'd totally stay here again or any other home with the same owner.

Great views on house

  • 4 of 5

A few things to make this house great/be warned when you arrive.

The $120 linen fee does not include making beds. You get to make 6 bunk beds. Plus no one wants to see a bare mattress.

The water in the fridge doesn't work. There is a separate ice maker but no water, bring bottles so you don't pay island price for water.

The fridge and freezer in general doesn't cool well.

A stick vac would make keeping house wood floor and sand clean up much easier.

Great place and views, all 3 of the families loved the visit. There is a gate at top of wrap around deck to keep in kids and dogs- nice touch! Plenty of seating for all.
