I was in charge of finding a house on the beach for 6 adults, a 7 year old and 5 month old. It was almost impossible to find something that was somewhat "affordable" and either on or close to the beach. Then we came across the "Affordable Upscale Cottage". Well, it had the word "affordable" in the name so it caught my attention.
I then clicked on the link and after looking at the pictures and the description of the house and what's around, I realized that this was the perfect house for us. We contacted the owners, Mark and Susan and they were quick to respond. Mark and Susan were such a pleasure to work with and accommodating so we were very excited for our one week stay.
I must say that the house is a slightly smaller than what would probably would like but for the location and the price, you can't beat it. It's within a 2 minute walk to the beach and about a 3 minute walk across Hwy. 98 to the outlet mall! What more could you want... shopping and a beach! The pool is very close to the house so we had a few options on things to do. There is a cool new restaurant called the "Surf Hut" about 1/2 a mile, which you could easily walk to... and we did.
The master bedroom is very spacious and the 2 other bedrooms are perfect for children or a couple. The downstairs is spacious and great for family time and dinner.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and the location. I'm sure we will stay here again!
