As this was my first time booking I was worried about what to expect. I can say Lori was very friendly, warm, and available to answer our questions. The property was on the back side of the strip, but very quiet. easy access to the beach, with steps only a minute or two walk, no joke. We had the comforts of home to cook with utensils appliances, etc., and having laundry was a big plus. It was a little smokey from a previous tenant, but not Lori's fault and she was up front about it. I'm sure with open windows it will be no problem. PS we had great chowder at the Sea Ketch, I recommend getting some!
