Welcome to our cozy beach cottage! Steps to ocean with public beach access, 'party size deck' with view of waterway to enjoy morning coffee or evening sunset views with glass of wine. Unlike condos, we have a yard for the kids to play, or to enjoy a cookout, and parking for up to 5 cars. Walk to the harbor to watch the fishing boats come back with their catch, walk to restaurants with outdoor seating and live music.
Privately owned and managed this is a single family home that offers easy beach access, dining room, large deck and fully equipped kitchen to cook all your favorite meals including a microwave and filtered water. Washer and dryer are also included in the rental. A home away from home!
We prefer to rent on a weekly basis, but may be able to accommodate shorter stays if you check with us about a month before you plan to arrive. We know you will love our home and to make your vacation more stress-free we included linens/towels during your week stay.
