Humble, clean home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

While I would not say this house was "fancy" by any stretch of the word, it is a perfect beach house! The comfortable furniture and beds make it easy to feel right at home. The views from the deck are amazing and sitting on the deack to have a cocktail and listen to the water are experiences my group won't soon forget. I saw another reviewer mentioned there isn't a place to swim - this is untrue! While the current is too strong for swimming between the pier and the bridge, it is fine for wading and cooling off. Also, if you are up for a short walk, once you go to the other side of the bridge, the current seemed calmer and we were able to swim and paddle board without a problem. We would definitely recommend this house for anyone who needs a get away!

AMAZING family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this beach house for 4 days and 3 nights... we didn't want to leave!! This house has everything you need and is set up perfectly. The kids enjoyed the loft, their "playroom", immensely. Every morning they would climb up there and watch movies. The house had all the essentials for everyday living; extra blankets, enough pillows, plenty of towels, washcloths, dishes and other kitchen items. Access to the beach was easy. It was a short walk down a path around the rocks and there we were. The view from the patio was everything we wanted. We enjoyed our morning coffee out there every morning watching the waves. I would definitely recommend staying at this home during your next trip. It is secluded, which we loved. It isn't a busy beach with a ton of people. I do want to clarify that on some of the other reviews it talks about the air conditioning not working well. We had absolutely NO issues while we were there. The house stayed nice and cool the entire time. Ok so on the con side because no place is 100% perfect, some of the furniture pieces needed to be retightened because they were loose and seemed to be coming apart (easy fix) and the shower head in the bathroom off the room with the king sized bed, needs to be replaced. It is tiny and it is positioned so far down, my husband and I had a very hard time using it. These 2 very minor things still doesn't deter me from this recommendation AND from us wanting to stay here again.

The house and accommodations were satisfactory.

  • 3 of 5

The description of the property was not accurate re: the beach and access.

We received Rules of the Beach after our reservation, indicating No Swimming on the beach in addition to "walkover" access, where no access exists today.

Overall we were pleased with rental property.

Beautiful views. Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We spent Memorial Day weekend 2016 at "cottage by the sea" and had a fantastic time. The house was very clean and loved the decor. We spent a lot if time just sitting on the front deck enjoying the views. The direct access to the beach was a plus and a short walk from the house. The house had all the amenities we needed. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beach home and it was fabulous. We all had such a great time. You can't get a better view of the ocean and the access to the beach was great! We shelled but mostly just sat and watched the water. The neighborhood is so quiet! We all have decided that we must come back to enjoy this home again. The property manager was great to work with. The home was super clean and comfortable. We all highly recommend this place to stay if you are looking for a great time at the beach.
