"I opened the front door and was blown away.
As I looked to the left I saw the large kitchen was flooded with light from the high vaulted ceiling. As I glanced to the right I noticed the beautiful stone fireplace with four comfortable, swivel chairs upholstered in white linen set around a table.
Through these living spaces, I walked through French doors to find a magnificent family room with ample seating space, large tv with cable (which we turned on once when it rained) and brand new board games. Nearby was a full bath newly renovated.
Outside was a lovely backyard filled with flowering plants, whimsical statues and several shaded seating areas. Upstairs my delight could barely be contained as I found two nice size bedrooms, a full bath also brand new, and a seating alcove with views of the water. It was as if I had stepped into heaven and found that the Lord has asked Ralph Lauren to decorate it. Thank you, God!
The home is tastefully decorated in the hues of starfish, driftwood, and wet warm sand.
The owner mentioned that the entire home is newly painted and has all new appliances, fresh flooring, and brand new mattresses. He neglected to mention that EVERYTHING is new...from the pots and pans to the glassware, flatware, and furnishings. I finally felt as though I were home.
We will highly recommend this property to our family and friends, so long as we get first dibs-HA!
I also should mention that we were glad about the no pets rule. We love our goldendoodle but one of the reasons we love him so much is that he doesn't shed, scratch floors or misbehave. That is not true for others' furry friends, so I was glad not to walk into a place that smelled like a dirty dog or start sneezing from a cat's dander. But that's just me!
The home is an easy walk to the beach. One well known secret is to walk to the end of the road, turn left onto Border and take the wooded path to Bayberry Ave. Walk down Bayberry and you will find yourself on an unpaved road leading to the beach, and your walk will be filled with flowers, bunnies, and friendly folk.
The owners did a great job communicating with us and we're deeply thankful for their willingness to rent their beautiful home. God bless you all."
