Very clean. Lacking in kitchen items and seating in living room.

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean house. Pool and outdoor area was fantastic. Bedrooms spacious and beds were great for large families. Kitchen Did not have some things that most rentals have. Needs more seating in living room. This house sleeps 15 I believe and sofa could only accommodate 4 comfortably.

This house is gorgeous! Very spacious! The pool was perfect for when we got tired of being in the sand at the beach. We grilled a few meals and cooked breakfast almost every morning. It was excellent! We would love to stay here again. Beach is not far at all! We walked once, and drove down to the crab trap and that public beach access every other time bc there was more room on the beach there. Only about. 3 minute drive. Worth it.
