Please note that Kathryn Rose maintains a smoke-free and pet-free environment. Also, because Beachwalk is family-focused (Nightly 10 p.m. Noise Curfew), we do not rent to prom groups.
Our goal is to make every guest a repeat guest, and we work year round to maintain our home and its furnishings. Our cleaning crew, repairman and yard crew are thorough and keep us informed re: repairs, replacements needed.
