Well worth the money. Convenient to restaurants and activities.

  • 4 of 5

My family of 16, aged 3 to 74, stayed a week at Chivas By the Sea. The house was very nicely furnished, including a commercial ice machine. All 9 of the grandchildren had their own beds and each family had a separate bedroom. The beach, right outside the back door was fantastic.

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the most incredible four days at Chivas by the Sea. The location was perfect and being able to enjoy the uncrowded beach right out your back door was one of the best for everyone. House was clean and well cared for. Sam could not have been more accommodating. We found him to be a very caring, friendly host who went above and beyond to make our visit memorable. He is customer service at its finest! Everyone in our group loved the place and requested that we come back to Sam's place in 2017.

We will for sure! We give this 5 stars and more and would highly recommend to your group!

Wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed four nights and loved the views and how close to the beach it was. The ice maker really came in handy fixing coolers for a day at the beach. Thank you Samuel for sharing your wonderful home with us. There were 16 of us. I had my Mother, Kids and Grandkids and everyone enjoyed our stay. Hope to visit again. This was our first trip to stay in a house on the beach and we loved it. Thanks again.
