Beachside Vacations LLC
A rustic gem
An 1811 building is what you get. It is less than 50 yards from the water and a great sandy beach. The kitchen is well set up. With 2 fridges you have enough space for food and beverages.
The only things that I would improve would be the sofa and love seat in the main room. They have seen better days. All bedrooms but one have twin beds. If adults out number kids this is not ideal.
I will return despite the furnishings because I am there for the beach not the furnishings.
Glad to be home
House was older than expected and located on part of beach that wasn’t ideal. The yard (front and back) was an eye sore. Window units did their best to keep up with the heat but most of the house was often hot. We won’t be back.
We loved it! It was built in the mid 1800s' and has survived the ocean which is just yards from the porch. Very original inside and exudes charm. Be ready though if you expect upscale kitchen with bells and whistles and marble bathrooms. We were there two weeks and cooked in about half of the time it may not be Martha Stewart but very adequate. Come expecting a wonderful experience, chill and enjoy, well not too much chill only the bedrooms are air conditioned.
Overall a great time. However!
Very rustic, but was expected. However, did not expect to find that only the bedrooms had A/C, and that was window units (very loud). Beautiful views, right on the beach, convenient location. If you can handle the hot temperatures and high humidity without A/C in the house you will have a great time.
Old-fashioned beach house
Do not rent this house if you require what most high-end beach houses offer now: elevators, high-end appliances, central air, media rooms, etc. This house is super-charming and quirky and old. It is more like a big cabin, with wood floors and walls and old doors and windows. It has an awesome smell like your grandma's house: not moldy or dirty or anything, just...old. We all loved it. It has been freshened up with lots of white paint and linens, painted furniture, etc. So cute! I took lots of pictures for our own cabin. The layout of the house meandered due to apparent add-ons over the years: it was wonderful. The rooms are nicely sized (big) for lounging and sleeping. It is clean and the beds are comfortable. The baths and kitchen are clean and white but are definitely cabin-grade, if that matters to you. The kitchen has a pantry and two sinks and two refrigerators. There were a few bugs; we kept all food in the fridge. The screened front porch is AMAZING and so is the view. There was a near-constant breeze through the house as it is right on the water and there are many doors opening onto the porch. I imagine on a still August day it could be a little less charming as the a/c is from window units. The house could use a Sonos and new binoculars.
The perfect beach house!
We had 9 women in this house for 5 days and we all loved it. The location is amazing. Water views from everywhere and views of sunrise and sunset from the very large screened porch. Beds were very comfortable and stayed very cool. All was wonderful and we would definitely go back.
