Great location, beautiful home and clean environment!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as well as unit D for our whole family. We couldn’t be more happy! The house is walking distance to the beach, food and fun. You can see the beach from the window. The house was super clean. We love to cook and the kitchen was huge and had all the utensils we needed. There was a washer and dryer available which was nice with so many kids. The host was available if we had questions and made our arrival and check out super easy! We will definitely be coming back!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The place is just wonderful. Perfect place for families. Loved our stay. We had 3 families and each had a room plus the nook for an uncle. The 2 end rooms are generous in size and there is room for the little ones to sleep on the matts provided. Teenagers slept on the hide-a-beds downstairs.

We had such a fun time with the beach so close. We spent the whole day there building sand castles and boogie boarding. Lunch time I would walk back to the house (it's that close) and gather lunch ingredients and then put it all in the back of the car. I parked in the roundabout, lifted up the trunk and we had a yummy little 'tailgate' lunch each day.

Thank you Alana for making this a time with family we will always remember.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast this last week at the beach! Everyone was so impressed on how roomy this rental is. Plenty of room for everyone. All the rooms are spacious and the dining and living area are large enough so everyone can visit.

There were so many little touches that made our stay so great. Beach chairs, toys, towels, surf board for the days at the beach. Plenty of clean towels in the bathrooms, and great appliances to use in the kitchen. Our favorite thing to do was go to the Farmers Market on Thursday morning and the Sunset Market Thursday night. Absolutely worth coming a day early to go to or visiting during a week long stay.

I love how close it is to the beach and kids and adults can come and go as they like. My kids can't wait to go again!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 enjoyed our stay immensely. The bedrooms on the second floor with each having a full bathroom was a huge plus. No one had to wait long for a shower after the beach. The closeness of the ocean/beach and pier was an added bonus. We will be back next summer. Alana was so great to work with which made our visit even better.

Clean, roomy, picturesque, relaxing

We enjoyed our week long stay and wish we could have stayed forever. Kitchen was large and well equipped. Tons of beach towels and equipment. Big bedrooms and bathrooms. One block from the ocean. Had all the comforts of home and a fantastic location. Will definitely be returning!
