I grew up going to this beach. We love this complex because it is affordable oceanfront and everything you want or need is close and convenient! There are always plenty of things to do and see in the area, even if it rains.

Jennifer Collins purchased this studio in 1998

We chose to buy at this complex due to the amount of beachfront (600 feet) and green space, privacy, family-friendliness, and affordability of the LOCATION, LOCATION!. This property has one of the very few pools with a deep end and we recently converted to a salt system, so the water doesn't burn your eyes so your skin smells and feels wonderful and your suits don't fade. There is an on-site coin laundry room which is also very convenient. The walk to the beach is about 75 steps!

This property has renters that come back year after year once they have found out about it! Guests are paying less than a hotel costs but have the convenience of a full kitchen (not all units here do) so they can have breakfast in their pj's if they want to and save a ton of money because they don't have to eat out every meal. Many of the owners and renters are second-generation who grew up coming to this complex and now bring their children. Everyone is pretty friendly. We have a wonderful on-site manager. The best cooking charcoal grills I have ever used are brick and mortar and located beside the pool and they get pretty busy during the summer. The local restaurants are fabulous, but if you are on a budget, you can cook the best meal ever on the grills in the ocean breeze beside the pool and then walk 4 steps to the picnic table and sit down and eat. There are bathrooms located beside the pools. The gazebo (there are two) is large and is a perfect place to go sit and enjoy your morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail or read a book. We have an almost football field size green grass space between the buildings and the dunes and around the pool which is wonderful for active kids as it is fenced and a safe place to play. If you don't see the date you want available on my calendar, send me an email anyway because I may be able to hook you up with a different unit at this same complex.

Quaint, homey beach side condo

The condo is small but very well organized. We had everything we needed and did not miss the extra space of a larger unit. The condo is just a few steps from a gorgeous, under-crowded beach. Jenn is very responsive and addressed all our needs beyond what we expected. I was very pleased with our interactions with her and with the condo. We highly recommend it and look forward to staying here again.

Lovely cozy clean studio efficiency. Just a few steps to the beach. Super comfortable bed, and really cute beach decor. Very efficient use of space. Really enjoyed the wi-fi connection. Great location...close to everything. Short jaunt to Beaufort and the great restaurants there. Property well cared for and well-maintained. Great value for a fall beach getaway.

Thanks, Jen! We had a wonderful vacation at this property. Proximity to the beach was awesome, quiet and conveniently located area (grocery store, dollar store, and restaurants are a five minute drive away, aquarium is less than fifteen minute drive away, gas station around the corner, etc). Had the beach and pool almost to ourselves! The room was thoughtfully furnished so we could eat in, then easily fold the table away. The room is quite cozy but it had enough space for us to set up my son's travel crib and leave it out without tripping over it. The listing is perfectly accurate, there were no surprises and Jen was amazingly helpful and answered all of my questions promptly and thoroughly. We also received our security deposit back in less than two weeks from returning home! Talk about customer service! We hope to return again next year!

My husband, 1 year old son and myself stayed here for a week this past August. What a wonderful location! The condo is only a few minutes away from the aquarium. The beach is excellent. Lots of room and its a private beach so it was never crowded. My son had the best time. He could run around and i would never have to worry about him bothering anybody. The room was just the right size for our family with a queen bed and a sofa bed and very clean. And I can not say enough positive things about Jenn the owner. She is fantastic. She really goes out of her way to make your stay great. We will definately be returning.

Notes:
I do things A LOT differently, things you won't find with any other rental. All provided bed linens, pillow & mattress protectors are clean and used only by you. All bathroom surfaces are sanitized as are all doorknobs, handles, & switches. HVAC filters are cleaned weekly. Dish Detergent, liquid hand soap, coffee filters, trash bags, salt & pepper and more are provided. Even with providing your own paper products, you'll find a full roll of tissue in the bathroom. There's outdoor cushions for the gazebo, nets, shovels, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella, Bocci Balls, trays for transporting a cookout, and long-handled utensils for grilling. IF you don't find an item you need, please let me know! Also, I provide TWO keys because I have overheard way too many seriously upset arguments over 'WHO has the key and where are they?' over 15 years. Gee, a $1 key would have fixed that. I only ask that you leave everything they way you found it & where you found it & how you found it : )
