Another Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this location. As before, everything turned out great. It is perfect for family . . . walking distance to the beach, town and kid's corner, great yard for dog, multiple grills, nice kitchen etc. Upgrade to central air and fast internet connection were a pleasant surprise.

We hope to be back again next year, maybe to stretch it out for two week stay.

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described. It had everything we need and was very roomy and comfortable. The location was perfect, you can walk or bike just about everywhere. We really took advantage of the nice grill and outside seating area. The house and yard was very dog friendly. It was the perfect place to stay with my family. I really hope we can make a trip back soon.

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for family and dog. Great location for going to beach, park and town. Nice back yard, deck, multiple grills and great kitchen

Only downside was intermittent internet connection, but got over that after the first couple of days

Hope to be back again soon maybe a couple weeks next time

Great Memorial Day Location

  • 4 of 5

We booked this rental rather at the last minute and were very pleased. My husband and I stayed with our toddler and our babysitter. The house was great for cooking: everything we needed was there, and we used the gas grill outside. There was even some vanilla extract in the pantry; I had forgotten mine (for French toast). There was a small slide for toddlers and my daughter loved it. We brought our dog and the little fenced in yard was great for her. (The fence is low, though, so be aware if you have a jumper.) It is easy walking distance to the beach and to downtown. Unfortunately, it was unseasonably cold and we couldn't take advantage of the beach. The only area for improvement might be some of the amenities you might want if it isn't a good beach day. There was a decent selection of board games and books, but the TV/DVD player and internet could use an update. While the TV and DVD player worked, they are VERY old. We had a lot of difficulty connecting to the internet; the signal was very weak and the only place the laptop could connect and stay connected was if we put it on top of the microwave. Also, two FYIs that were unexpected but not a problem: there is no dishwasher, so if you plan to cook, plan to wash dishes! Second, the one bathroom is on the 1st floor. Our babysitter slept on the fold out couch, so it would have been awkward to have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Overall, we had a lovely time and would stay again.

Beach Bums Review

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we had at this house! It was a cute little cozy cottage with great decks and fenced-in yard perfect for our small dachsund. With washer and dryer in the bathroom, we returned from vacation without the usual laundry overload. The air conditioners kept the interior cool and comfortable for when we returned from our four block walk to the beach. We walked downtown every evening. The rental process was easy and enjoyable. Anytime I looked for something at the house, it was there. We certainly enjoyed our stay there.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week and were thrilled with the location of the house, which is just a few blocks from town or the beach. The house worked for us and our dog with the fenced in yard being a real plus. We spent most mornings eating our breakfast on the back deck which was spacious with nice patio furniture. The house has a washer and dryer which was also a huge plus for us since we were there for a week. The two bedrooms are upstairs and the one and only bathroom is on the main floor. That was not a problem for us, but it could be for some families. In terms of cleanliness, I would say the house was fairly clean upon our arrival with the exception of the bathroom tub which was somewhat moldy and is in need of recaulking.
