We just finished a week long vacation at Sea-Shellter and we had a great time! The boardwalk to the beach is just a few houses down. We were so relieved to find the beaches uncrowded, with just a handful of other families in the vicinity. The pool is larger than it looks in the pictures, and definitely a huge plus if you have kids that can't handle all day at the beach. We ate on the screened porch for most meals. I loved the gas grill by the pool. It was so convenient! FYI, there is an adult and children's bike in the garage, as well as several pool toys (boogie boards, noodles, beach chairs, etc). We had a problem with the air unit (even though it was new) and Lloyd was quick to get it taken care of, even sending the super nice housekeeper over to check on us. We were very pleased with Sea-Shellter!
