FAQ: We have owned the home for nine years and have rented through larger agency in the past. We have had success through vrbo with another property and this is our first year at the beach. You can book directly on line or contact me. We can arrange to make three payments depending on how far out you book. Once the last payment has been made, usually scheduled two weeks before arrival date, you will be send instructions on address, entry, and other pertinent information on house. There is a 90 day 100% refund.

As far as the location of house to beach, please see posted pictures and captions. One picture was taken from house showing access between a yellow and a gray ocean front houses. The second picture shows a close up of access showing same houses. I hope that made sense. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions.
