The separate dining room also affords its own ocean view. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. Another bedroom has two twin beds, while the third is equipped with two sets of bunk beds. A front deck includes patio chairs, tables, an umbrella and a barbecue with charcoal and tools.

Amenities: Just off the deck is a secluded sandy area that is bordered by iceplant and offers privacy. This 1100 square foot house is fully equipped with all major appliances, including a washer, dryer and dishwasher. Other amenities include a 36'' TV with cable and VCR, a newspaper subscription, all linens, soaps, paper supplies and normal household items such as a vacuum, brooms and garden hoses.

Great family beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to stay in during our vacation. We had 4 adults and 4 small children. It was perfect. The kids room had 2 sets of bunk beds for the kids. Very cozy and clean. No bugs. It also was stocked really well with the basic necessities. Towels, toys, chairs, pack n play, water boards, bikes, etc. it was a really great experience. We'll be back for sure!

I wish you enough

  • 5 of 5

This place....oh this place. I just cannot wait to go back. It was perfect for me, my brother, and my 4 children. They had everything we needed right there. The owners are so pleasant to deal with and answered my every question before and during our stay. The place is not enormous, it was just enough. I dream of being there still. The kids are still talking about it too and how badly they want to go visit again next year. We had quite the experience of a lifetime for our first ever family vacation. It wasn't too much, it was just enough:)

Heaven on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

I, my wife and two daughters have stayed at this beach house for 10 years. That alone should tell you something. What we like about it is that we instantly feel at home. Also, during most mid-week times, the beach is almost empty. Almost feels like we also rented a private beach. The neighborhood is relatively quiet and feels very safe and secure. The owners have provided everything you need to be comfortable and with a full size refrigerator, stove and range, there is no need to eat out if you prefer to eat at home. But if you prefer earing out when on vacation, there are plenty of good places to eat within just 2-3 miles of the house. I have personally recommended this beach house to friends and family and continue to do so.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We took our kids to this beach house for ten years and enjoyed every trip. Hope to start going back again soon after missing the last two years. The nice thing we liked is it feels like being in a home, not in a hotel. Also, sitting on the deck in the evening and watching the sun set over the ocean just makes the rest of life bearable.
