Great View and house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this house and have to say the accommodations were great. We were 2 families and there was plenty of room. The view was great of the beach and the ocean. Would recommend property to a friend.

A decade of memories

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been enjoying this wonderful beach HOME for a decade now. We have stayed on both the North and South sides, and sometimes we’ve been joined by other family members or friends and rented both. By opening the gate on the upstairs porch, the two houses turn into one big one. The North side provides an overlook to the street and driveway entrance. This side is great for kids, as they can enjoy playing in the parking spaces along side the house, or on the dead end street for an after dinner kickball or wiffle ball game, while parents can watch from the deck above. The South side has beautiful breezes, that allows us to turn off the air and sleep with the windows open and listen to the ocean waves crashing. This house has everything you would find in the comfort of your own home. Our family likes to cook almost all of our meals at the beach (with the exception of pizza night), and there is never a utensil or pot or pan that I can’t find. Love the addition of the Keurig machine this past summer! Love love LOVE the beach chairs, beach toys and boogie boards that are provided by the owners. What a great touch! The owners are very accomodating. If there’s ever a problem, or something broken, they will go out of their way to fix or replace an item immediately. My children love this house, as do we. Looking forward to another decade of memories!
