Beautiful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of all women stayed in this amazing beach front house for a week. We felt like we had won the lottery! The house was absolutely beautiful and spacious and the views were to die for! Everywhere you looked there was the ocean. The beach is literally right off the deck stairs . The white sand called us each day and the ocean was warm and calm. The beach chairs, umbrellas and floaties provided by Tom made the beach the best!

As if the house itself wasn't enough, Tom was a great host and did everything he could to make our trip perfect.

We hope to come back to this house again and again!

This house is everything that it says it is. Tom and his family are great people!!! We really enjoyed the location of the home. We were down for a wedding on the beach, everyone was so impressed with the house. Our family felt very honored to be able to meet Tom and we have felt we have made new friends for life. We will be back to enjoy the Beach House again!!!! Highly Recommend!!!

Beautiful Week

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Tom's home with family and had a fantastic week.  The house was immaculate and the ocean views and sunsets are beautiful!  Our 8 year old daughter spent hours playing in the warm water!  We made lots of memories and look forward to returning in the future.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonder family trip. This house was perfect for our family with 3 young kids. The house had everything we needed for living comfortably and relaxing on the beach. There were many toys for the kids to play in the sand with and lots of chairs, umbrellas and coolers for the adults. Tom was very helpful and responsive to all request we had. We will be making this house a yearly destination for our family.

I can't say enough about the Beach House". The accommodations were superb, & the location couldn't have been better. I wouldn't recommend it for handicapped or the infirm, since there are a lot of stairs. The weather was fantastic while we were there. My goal was to listen to the surf & the birds & enjoy the sunsets…mission accomplished!
