                                                              Charming beach getaway

                                                              We had a wonderful time at this charming beach getaway. Enough space for our extended family. Just a short walk over the dunes to the beach for great shell hunting or do a little kayaking in the ICW right off the dock. The accommodations were clean and spacious. Loved the hot tub and tiki bar. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again soon.

                                                              Needs some improvements but overall all ok

                                                              Had a good time. Nice location. Owner very helpful and understanding with some,problems

                                                              Truly a pleasure.

                                                              The Unicorn of Beach Houses

                                                              Jonathan J.

                                                              I've searched up and down the coast for a beachfront house that also has a boat dock, pool and hot tub. There are not many but this one seems to be the best to me. It's casual and relaxed, not luxurious but ample comfort and convenience, even if there is a little "water bug" problem. It would be perfect if you could see the beach better from like a crow's nest or something, but there really isn't much to complain about. 8/10 - Would rent again.

                                                              A great fall vacation with the family.

                                                              Everything you want: beach, boat dock, pool, hot tub, 5 bedrooms, sunny porches, shady porches and sunsets from the Tiki Bar.

                                                              Just the ticket

                                                              Just as described. Left the boat at the dock for the weekend. Picked up a bushel of oysters and 2lbs of shrimp at Grants; enjoyed the hottub, played games and cooked instead of going out. Short easy walk to the beach.
