Very clean. Nice evening views.

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the beach house. The house had everything we needed. The house was very clean and the deck was wonderful to sit and enjoy our family. The golf cart was a must to get our gear to the beach. The private beach was nice but not very big. I am aware they don't mow to keep the sand from blowing but the grass was really high all around the house. The owner was great to work with and answered our questions quickly. The house was overall great and I am looking forward to future stays!

Perfect house!

  • 4 of 5

House is amazing very close to the buggy/car dune access... one negative thing was that there was no real access to the beach to comfortably lay out on the sand. Fire pit was a huge plus we made camp fire every night!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great stay!! Beach access is 500 yards to the south and the new golf cart was just delivered to help guests take down beach chairs, coolers etc. Glad you had some great weather to enjoy the firepit. Have a great summer!!

Beautiful and inviting home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 9 nights. I have 3 teenaged boys, this was "their" vacation and they enjoyed every day. The home was very clean, warm and inviting. Although the home is not right on the dunes or water, the yard is very private and you get a very secluded feeling with a fabulous deck. Views were spectacular every night! I am one who likes to enjoy my nights eating out on vacation and this is not something we could do here as this area does not have many dining out options. However, grilling and eating around the large kitchen table every night with friends and family was priceless! Owner was very accommodating and attentive to our needs. This home had everything we needed. I would definitely visit this home again.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

Good location, it was quiet but in the middle of a lot of activities. The house was perfect for our little family. We had parents and other family in for a home cooked meal in the kitchen.

One minor issue was that during the early evening the sun comes pouring in as the sun sets. All the great sunshine heats up the great room...bring a fan!

Our small dogs enjoyed walking around the circle with all the other vacation homes. We enjoyed borrowing the paddle board that was down at the little beach. We would definitely consider renting again.

Beautiful house, Nice views, Friendly renter

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 days and absolutely loved it. The inside was clean and smelled wonderful. We loved that we had access to clean beach towels, dishes to cook and grill with, and a few groceries! The owner was friendly (and has a hot australian accent) and was able to help us when we got lost.

The only thing that was disappointing was that the yard desperately needed to be mowed and cleaned up. Also the walk way to the beach needed to be weed eated.

Other than that we are 100% happy with our stay and highly recommend staying here.

The 'Aussie' Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time there. Rented the the beach house for a week and it was fully renovated and beautiful. Close to town with lots to do. The kids loved the dune rides and the jet ski rentals. Relaxing at night around the campfire was perfect. We will be coming back next year
