About the Property

4 bedroom 2 full bath, super close the beach fully updated and all new linens

Bring your flip flops, beach toys and swimsuits and relax at Steps to the Sand. This fully furnished 4 bedroom 2 full bath updated home recently featured on a popular HGTV show has two master bedrooms one with a king bed and pull out sofa and the other with a queen. Two bunk rooms for the kids one with a double twin bunk bed plus trundle and the other with a twin bed plus trundle. New stainless steel appliances, updated cabinetry and solid surface counter tops appoint the kitchen located off the dining area. Unlike some of the houses we provide the normal items like a full set of real pots and pans, Ninja blender for smoothes, full set of stoneware plates and cups, plastic beach glasses, spices and condiments, coffee maker and coffee, bbq/smoker and you wont be short on the little things like bath towels, paper towels, toilet paper or garbage bags. If you want to prepare a full dinner, bbq your fresh catch or just wake up to a full size pot of coffee we have you covered. We also provide beach chairs and a few sand toys for the kids that you are welcome to use while your stay. We will consider 2 or 3 night stays on Sunday thru Wednesday night or if only 2-3 night stays are left available because of previously booked reservations.The system will not allow you to book online for stays shorter than what is stated on the website so give us a call if you are interested and we will let you know if we can accommodate your stay. We include the use of our 2014 6 seat gas golf cart with owner approval and proper insurance for guests with a drivers license and over 21. For reference on the value the golf cart adds to your stay, local golf cart rentals are $175-$200 per day for a six seat cart that will be a few years older and you have to wait in line to get it all set up. The quickest way to the beach on those busy weekends and events is to walk down the private boardwalk and in less than 5 minutes you can park yourself on the beach and start to unwind. After you get done at the beach or for the sports fans that can't miss a game we have a 50" flat-screen in the main living area with surround sound plus flat screens in 3 of the four bedrooms. We have full cable, dvd player, HBO and Netflix plus "real" high speed internet for catching up on work items and streaming your favorite music. We have an fully enclosed outdoor shower located behind the front steps to wash off the beach you brought back. The back patio area with a table, umbrella and 8 chairs that is lushly landscaped with hibiscus and gardenia. Our rule on the back patio is the first one in the hammock wins and although we don't count that as a bed it is perfect for reading a book or taking a quick cat nap. Bring a brisket, ribs and your favorite wood chips and you can smoke till your hearts desire on our full size pit.
Our calendar is always up to date so if you are looking for a last minute trip or looking at 6 months from now you can book it now with confidence. If you need to ask about golf cart usage policy or are looking for a last minute booking feel free to contact us by phone or email, if we don't answer on the first call we will return calls and emails in an hour. We do ask that someone over 25 book and stay at this property for the duration of the rental and are interested in renting to responsible families. Our home is well maintained, handy to the beach, close to down town and perfectly suited for two families with children. Reservations are considered "booked" when they have the deposit or entire stay has been paid, we cannot "hold" dates. To book dates 25% down is required with the balance being paid no less than 30 days out from arrival unless alternate arrangements have been with owner. Owner has the right to decline stays that encompass two weekends if you are staying less than 13 days. An example would be we can't accommodate during busy times is a Saturday thru Saturday stay that is 7 nights. Major Holiday weekends are a minimum of three night stays unless otherwise approved by the owner.Feel free to call, text or email anytime if you have a special request, we will respond within one hour. If the website shows the house is available it is ready to be booked, we update the website availability within one hour of bookings so you can feel confident in the book it now feature.

CANCELLATIONS - A sixty (60) day notice is required for cancellation. Cancellations that are made more than sixty (60) days prior to the arrival date will incur no penalty other than the "vbro" booking fee. Cancellations or changes less than 60 days from arrival that result in a shortened stay will forfeit the full reservation deposit.
