Family friendly and so close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a quick trip away - opens onto a veranda and in a minute you are at the beach. Simple and clean and great if you have kids.

Loved this little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this little apartment so close to the large, beautiful beach. I was slightly worried about no central air, but the window units kept the apartment plenty cool. Clean, comfortable and close to everything. Barely heard or saw our neighbors. Loved the easy walk up over the dunes to uncrowded beach. Loved Shoreline Brewery and Matey's. Heard the new Fish Camp Restaurant is excellent. We will be back next year!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as listed -clean, comfortable, and great location. Literally just walked around the corner to the beach access. We enjoyed visiting the dunes and parks on the holiday weekend - easy access to state and national lake shore. We loved our dinner at Shoreline Brewery. The parking was not ideal - no dedicated parking, so had to search for a spot in the area a couple of times. Also, there was no battery in the smoke detector. The coffee pot was cracked when we tried to use it the first morning, and the owner was quick to respond that a new one would be delivered - but it never arrived. Disappointing but did not ruin our stay.

A little gem almost on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the location 100 yards from the fantastic six mile walking beach. The unit was not large, but large enough for a family of 4 to 6.

The outdoor patio with a grill was a nice feature. The place is very homey and has a wonderful beachy feel with the white and blue color scheme and decor.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Perfect for my family of 4. Apartment was as described. It had all necessities. Internet worked great. Tv worked great. Only 5 minute walk over one sand dune to beach. Easy to go back and forth for bathroom breaks or lunch. We enjoyed not having to drive to the beach. Lots to do within short driving distance. We enjoyed playing games on the patio and grilled on the propane grill one night. Everything was clean and worked as it should. We did one load of laundry with no problems. Great memories and we Would return to stay here again. Thank you!
