About Audrey Penny

Thank you for your interest in my home. I purchased this home at a young age and lived there for many years. Memories include bringing my babies home, them riding their trikes down the driveway, many walks to the beach over the years, parties at the park, and good times with friends and neighbors. The house has been lovingly renovated and upgraded over the years and we continue to 'go back home' now and then. I hope you feel the warmth and love of this home when you walk through the doorway. Thank you for your interest and I hope you choose my home to create your special vacation memories.

Audrey Penny purchased this House in 1996

                                                                  We enjoyed our stay here very much. In town for a wedding in TC and decided to stay the whole week. Nice, clean and private location. The kids enjoyed the playground nearby and the house was nicely stocked. Would definitely come back. Thanks Audrey!

                                                                  Very nice, clean, and appropriately furnished.

                                                                  We were a family of 4 taking a 4 day (3 nights) family vacation. Unfortunately after the first night of stay, two family members, due to medical reason, could not stay at the house and returned to our home town to get treatment. The other two who stayed in the house were pleased with their stay, had enjoyed the surrounding. They think the house and the area is so nice that warrants another attempt to vacationing there.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I am truly sorry that you were unable to enjoy the vacation with your family due to unforseen circumstances. I do hope there will be another time you can return and enjoy the area.

                                                                  Nice and neat
