We have been to SPI 5 times now and this was our first house rental. We will be doing this again and will be staying at this house. We rented the upstairs unit with is the 3/2.
This house is on the same street as the movie theatre and only 2 blocks from Blackbeards. It is a half a block from the beach and a great paved access to the beach up until the dunes start.
Our best surprise? A great view of the Friday night fireworks from the upstairs porch.
The house has tons of beach toys and a variety of umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards etc. The best thing is the wagon with huge wheels. There is also an outdoor shower to rinse off before you drag all that sand into the house!
The home itself is nice and relaxing. Big living room/kitchen/dining so everyone can be together without being on top of each other. The bedrooms are beachy in theme and all have tvs and storage space. They also have a good supply of games and books in case you forgot anything. The bathrooms are nice and towels were very soft.
The front porch is great for catching a breeze and just hanging out. We ate, played games, and had a late night drink out there. Nice and big so everyone fit comfortably.
Richard and Claudia live next door and you see them coming and going. They are super friendly and quick with any suggestions you might need.
