Guestbook comments from the owner
"Just wanted to let you now what a fabulous time we had at your beach house. The weather was fairly cooperative, and we enjoyed just getting away and walking on the beach and spending some precious time together. The house was absolutely great! The views were wonderful, even through the fingers of fog that greeted us each morning. We visited the beach at low tide and were able to see anemones and starfish galore! The amenities in the house were perfect, and even though we didn't take advantage of the hot tub, we probably would next time we visit. All in all, a lovely, but long drive, and wonderful times spent in the house and on the beach. Rick and I are hopeful that we can visit again and thank you for sharing such a beautiful place. We definitely feel like we've found the perfect beach getaway!"
