Quality location, with old-fashioned family cottage feel, with amenities.

  • 3 of 5

Cottage served our needs well, with its location to the private beach and surrounding areas. We loved the screened in porch and appreciated the A/C, dishwasher, washer/dryer and WiFi. The grounds need some work and It could use a deep cleaning of the stove and windows, but was generally clean. Beds were a bit uncomfortable.

Comfortable and convenient to the most beautiful beach.

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean and every need was anticipated and as frequent beach renters we appreciate the little things that make a rental good. The beds were made up for us. There was enough toilet paper for the week. There were plenty of good quality bath towels available. Plus there is a dishwasher and a washer/dryer. The walk to the beach is short, unless you need to haul a cooler, in which case a parking pass is provided. Very nice rental.

Summer Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at this home. Every summer we plan a girls trip for a bunch of us that met in college and over the years have spread out. We always look for something either with a pool, or on the water. Although this house wasn't "on" the water, it was just a short jaunt up the hill and around the corner. The beach was absolutely beautiful and was not overcrowded. In the evenings we grilled out and enjoyed relaxing by the fire pit. The house accommodated 8 of us comfortably. It has a spacious kitchen area for multiple people to cook and gather. I would recommend this home for anyone looking for a relaxing enjoyable weekend!

Perfect for our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at this property and just loved it! It sits in such a nice quiet community, and the beach is great!! House and yard were plenty big enough for the kids to play. Very short drive to Warren Dunes State Park as well! The house is very clean and well stocked with anything you could need while visiting. Overall we had a great experience and would book this rental again!
