What A Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific cottage. Big rooms, great yard and an AWESOME porch. It is so close to a great beach. We were either at the beach or hanging around in the porch. I can't wait until our next visit!

We LOVE this place!

  • 5 of 5

The Butterfly Bungalow is the perfect place to unwind and have some family time. We will definitely be coming back. The description is accurate with the house and the house was just immaculate. The screened in porch was the highlight for my family! There is a bakery and small grocery store just a walk away. The beach was so close with a convenient walk to and from. We highly recommend this to any group of people!!

Charming beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this charming home. We could easily walk to the beach as well as the Union Pier shops. It was extremely child friendly -- already stocked with plenty of beach toys and quiet bedrooms for naps.

The best feature in the cottage is the enormous screened in porch. It was the perfect spot for all our meals, entertaining friends and game nights. Looking forward to coming back!
