Cozy Space, Super Close to Beach/Bars/Restaurants

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this property. It's small and cozy, perfect for two people. The beach is a 5 minute walk. RedBar and Chiringo's are just as quick. You really feel like your in a quaint neighborhood. The porch was the perfect spot to drink coffee in the morning, or listen to music at night. The decor is rustic and cute. Would definitely stay here again.

Cute little shabby shack

  • 4 of 5

Loved the place, old shack nicely updated. Would be 5 stars if it were not so close on one side to a giant brand new home that detracts some from the rustic charm of this place.

The most charming cottage. Great locations.

  • 5 of 5

Love the historical charm of this cottage. An unexpected pleasant surprise, amongst some of the newer larger homes . A perfect romantic getaway. Close to the famous Red Bar and AJ's. Walking distance to the beach.

Interesting place, just not for me

  • 2 of 5

I left two days early, hard to explain but I just wasn't comfortable in this adorable house. It was well decorated and clean but something wasn't right. The construction next door wasn't great but it happens, no big deal. The lack of landscaping was a bit odd and wasn't inviting at all to enjoy the deck or porch. Of course the overflowing construction dumpster didn't help with but that's not anything the owners can control. The front rockers were old and weathered and looked fragile, the overgrowth was just too much and hid the porch. . It gave the place an unkept feeling. The value for the off season and construction next door could have been better. Loved the special seashell framed picture but Wasn't a fan of the old lady photograph in the living area. Access to beach was good, an easy 5-10 minute walk. Next time I will go for something less rustic. This place had everything needed, new linens, kitchen well stocked. Odd review I know but it was an odd experience.

Construction next door

We arrived to find they were constructing 4 houses within 20 feet of the house. We requested another rental.
