Guestbook comments from the owner

My family has used this home for the past several years; my kids sure have enjoyed the summers on the water. Swim off the dock into the river, warmer than the beaches. It is 'on the ocean' yet quiet with almost no boat traffic. A great place to pop the sunfish or catamaran or kayak into the water.

We go to the beach boat, a wonderful 'putt' up the river, you can 'park' the boat right on the beach.

This is the 1st year we are offering it as a rental, hence no reviews.
