This vacation home is truly a "little piece of paradise". Once you walk in the door, you know you are on vacation. The privacy of the back yard is wonderful and well groomed. You don't see anything except the tropical presence. The house is well-furnished with anything you would need as well as beach chairs and sand toys to take to the beach. No, it is not right on the beach, but you just walk or drive to the end of the street (merely a few yards) to a nice parking area with shower and bathrooms right on the beach. There are several quaint places to dine including Alfie's just at the end of the street. They have the best seafood I have tasted anywhere! It is reasonably priced and they will do take-out if you don't want to dress for a great dinner! We would recommend this rental to anyone young or older. My 2 year old granddaughter experienced her first beach trip. She was particularly fond of the small lizards and a turtle that visited us nightly in the back yard. It was truly a vacation to remember!
