About Sylvie Zesbaugh

I am a retired flight attendant and school teacher. I moved here from France and am a very good cook!! I love people and am very accommodating and attune to your needs as they arise!

Sylvie Zesbaugh purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Sylvie Zesbaugh chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

We are very determined to make this cottage a great place to come to and build great memories for those coming here! We offer much more than the standard rental in this area!

What makes this bungalow unique

We offer babysitting services in case the adults want to go out for a quiet evening on their own. We will do the grocery shopping for you so you can enjoy more shopping or going to the beach! We could also prepare the evening meal for you.

We also will provide, upon request, two beach chairs and umbrella!!

We are both licensed ministers and can perform the wedding ceremony if you choose to marry on the beach!!

This is a great cottage on a beautiful beach. Very clean, spacious, short walk to the beach. Comfortable and great hosts. Close to so many restaurants, grocery stores, etc. We are coming back next year!

We loved our stay at the cottage. The neighborhood is beautiful and it was so nice to be able to walk to the beach. The cottage was very clean and had a wonderful kitchen and bathroom. We would love to come back and stay again!

Beautiful bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and very well equipped. The kitchen had about anything you could need for cooking. The space was perfect for a couple, but there was a cute loft for added guests.

Everything was spotless and bright. I would definitely recommend to anyone. The beach was s short walk from the bungalow.

Very well located and neatly decorated beach house

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying with you even though it rained quite a bit (unusually much). The house is perfect for 2 people who don't have a problem sharing a queen size bed. The owners are very friendly, hospitable and helpful. The house looks very new and the garden is just lovely to look at. The beach is just 4-minutes walking distance and very nice and clean.

Just a couple of suggestions: The loft beds didn't have a lamp so you had to climb back down to switch off the light. A little lamp there would help! The temperature up there is also considerably higher than below, but not sure if that could be fixed. It would definitely be too small and crowded for 6 people. We would also suggest putting some cushions on the bench since it is made of wood.

Great vintage style ;) thx for making our stay so enjoyable!!
