The house has been newly renovated with updated decor, 2 plush queen beds, and 2 plush XL twin beds; All linens are provided. There is a screened in porch to keep you away from cousin skeeter (that's southern talk for mosquitoes) or keep you out of the sun. There are two tvs with premium (HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax) cable, a roku, an apple tv, a dvd, and plenty of movies. All bedrooms, living room, and screened in porch have ceiling fans. It is close to restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, boat ramps, piers, lighthouses, a movie theater, putt putt, and ....of course...the BEACH.
