Adorable beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really loved the little red cottage! The place was clean and very roomy with all the conveniences of how, with washer dryer, cable, wifi and fully equipped kitchen. Steps to the beach, comfy beds, screened porch and a large open room upstairs to fit all the kids. The jette, camp Ellis shops and village feel. We will def be back!
