Terrific property for our mini-vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property for our family weekend, with two toddlers and grandma. The condo was well appointed and charming, and the beach access was great. When the battery died in the kids' smoke alarm (always happens at midnight) Dale came right after our text in the morning to replace it. Everything we could want was included, it was cute, updated and roomy, and we could walk to the beach and take a short drive to restaurants . Recommended!

Great place with boardwalk to beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo with the excellent beach access. Grandsons (eight years old) could come back to the condo by them selves if they needed to (not alone. Adults were there.) Everything we needed was available. Mary and Dale were right there to help. Thanks for everything.

Location, Beautifully appointed, and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. This condo was not only spacious but love the the updates!!! Ease of being on the 1st level was a plus. Being so near the beach and downtown made this condo a perfect fit for our family. Having the pool just steps away from the condo was right up our grandkids' alley. I would recommend this condo to my friends and family. Can't wait to come back next year!!!

Great Place Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Dale and his team were awesome. Met us despite our late arrival. The unit was exactly as advertised and very clean and neat. Not that easy of a task with all of the sand. Location is fantastic, right near beach marker 11. Drive your car and park right on the beach to transport all of the beach equipment, then walk back and forth between the unit with out lugging everything. Only $12 for season pass to park on beach. Our kids loved the free wifi!
