Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The unit was quiet and cozy...less than 5 minute walk to the beach. It was clean and well kept. Watch out for "Billy" the squirrel...will follow you and try to come inside. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

My wife and I had a great stay here for our long anniversary weekend.

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice place. It was clean, and well stocked with the essentials when we arrived. It was right across the street from the beach, and close to some good restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping centers. It was a very nice stay for my wife and I.

Nice clean property.

  • 4 of 5

Not really beachfront as advertised but close to the beach. Overall the stay was great the studio was clean and enough space for two people. The bedding had a funny smell but we just took the top cover and it was fine. But overall great!
