For the convenient location (close beaches and HEB Plus store), affordable pricing, and flexibility by Debbie and Carol to meet our basic needs, this small home was well worth making a reservation. My family had a wonderful time with our recent visit, and we will definitely look into doing it again. The listed pictures are exactly how the home looks like, inside and out. The best feature for us was the backyard deck that is mostly secluded and allowed us to enjoy ourselves. FYI, there is no washer/dryer but we did find a laundry mat nearby (Bay Laundry?). My Gramma also had slight trouble exiting the back door because of the steep steps with sand, but this could be corrected in the future with a rail installation. One thing we also learned firsthand was to NOT to lower the house thermostat below 70-72 because of the humidity, which will cause the system to freeze and stop working temporarily (in our case, one night). Withstanding these exceptions, this is an excellent find for "home away."
