The Southern Veranda is more than incredible. Our family ranged in age from 1 yr to 66 yrs and none of us could have hoped for a better house and vacation. This is a house/property you just melt into and will not want to leave. Photos are exactly what you get. This is a house you can live in and honestly feel as if it is your own while you are there. Yes it is near railroad tracks and my grandkids loved it. House is exactly where it is shown to be and it combines being a "rock throw" to the beach and still has the feeling of being remote. had one maintenance issue and it was resolved immediately. Could not have asked for better response. Not only have we already recommended the house to several others, we are already planning our next visit. 5 stars is not enough to adequately state how our family felt about The Southern Veranda. Love Love Loved this house!!
