The cottage is as described but much roomier than I expected - plenty of storage in the kitchen as well as bedrooms and other areas. The kitchen was well stocked - I found everything I needed and the owner was extremely helpful. We walked the boardwalk and to the inlet (only 7 houses away) to watch the boats and the fireworks on Thursday were spectacular - only a short walk to see them. I would definitely recommend this cottage at the shore. The surfing beach is the closest to this house so we did have to walk a bit to swim but honestly, I would definitely stay again. Clean, well kept and the deck was a wonderful amenity. The convenience of the washer/dryer and outside shower is definitely a plus as well. Five stars!!
