Great time at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great time at this beach rental. It feels very private and cozy. We liked being close to the pier for the great restaurants and the kids loved the beach, even on cold days. We truly felt at home and felt the hosts wanted us to have a great stay.

Great location and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

While the apartment was small it worked great for myself and my 3 kids. Just two blocks from the beach and walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Parking was a half block away and we were able to easily find spots. The host checked in on us and had many beach items for my kids to use.

Cozy Bungalo less than a minute away from the beach

  • 5 of 5

I was reluctant at first to book with Helen and Chris due to going through PayPal and the deposit, but I didn't have any issues. I received my deposit back the day that I left with no hassle.

The bungalow shares a wall with the main house, but its only door opens out to a common patio making it still feel private. There is a decent little kitchen, and the grocery store is a 5 minute walk so it is easy to eat cheap. If you want to eat out, there are tons of places nearby but be ready for higher beach prices.

All in all I would definitely stay here again. Nice family, nice location, nice house.
