                                                              We had a wonderful vacation and are very grateful to the homeowner for providing everything needed in a well stocked home. The private beach is beautiful! There is a great fire ring, screened in area, deck with grills, beach accessories for kids, and multiple outdoor seating areas.

                                                              We will be back!

                                                              Great location if you're looking to get away from it all!.

                                                              Spent a week and loved it! Everything you need is there (and more).

                                                              Relaxing Christmas Vacation

                                                              My husband, my 3 year old and myself decided to get away for the Holidays. I'm so glad we chose this property. The house is beautiful with all of the essentials that you need for a week at the beach. Both of the bathrooms have been updated to be VERY nice. The beach front is open and vast and we had a great time looking for shells and digging in the sand. Due to our visit being in December, the weather was too cold to actually venture in the water however, the water looked beautiful and calm. I would recommend this rental to my friends and family and we would definitely visit again in the warmer weather months. Thanks to Nikola for being so responsive to our questions during our stay. It is greatly appreciated.

                                                              Beautiful and relaxing

                                                              Stayed for a few days, loved it and plan to stay again! Clean, comfortable, beautiful - love the scrub from the extended lot and the ability to just let the kids run around and be kids without having to helicopter. Only suggestion would be the pots and pans are a bit worn and no big pans - we love to cook. Other than that, it was great!

                                                              Everything you could want! My third visit here!

                                                              Everything you could want from nest and clan, fully furnished right down to having your own kayaks!!

                                                              Incredibly Private, Peaceful Oasis!
