average rating of 3.8 based on 15 reviews

Great location and cost, just a few things we noticed after staying a week...

  • 3 of 5

My family and I love using HomeAway and I always refer to reviews to help determine where we stay, hopefully this will help future families pick there home away from home...


1. The property management company, and it's employees, were great! They were top notch in their kindness, responsiveness and helpfulness!

2. Location!!! This property is directly off of the main road, we could walk to restaurants and stores with ease. Now, it is not a walk to the beach. But if you travel with kids and pets it is impossible to go spend the day at the beach without a multitude of stuff! There are 2 access roads to the beach within a mile of the property and there are cart rentals within walking distance. Which the affordability of the property means you can splurge and get a cart! The residents of the community were also extremely nice!

3. Cost!!!

4. The yard area is SO nice if you are traveling with a fur baby!

5. The bed is phenomenal!

Why I gave it 3 stars...

1. The AC unit cannot be set for lower than 72, and it struggles to maintain that temperature.

2. There was an instruction sheet explaining the refrigerator may take up to 24 hours to completely cool food?! Which was nice to know but seriously the first thing we did was go to the grocery store and dairy products do not fair well in a warm refrigerator.

3. Ants! They have overtaken the yard! Thank God they were not fire ants! Just irritating little 'piss ants' everywhere, mainly outside but our neighbors had them in their house.

4. The shower... UGH you cannot really move in the shower, trying to shave my legs was impossible while taking a shower. It is plenty tall but very small! The water temperature was also a major concern, it was very difficult to get the temperature at a comfortable temp. It went from scolding to cold with little in between. And the shower head was flimsy, an exposed pvc pipe held the head and it slipped out of its holder a few times causing everything in the little rack to come crashing down.

5. Privacy was a struggle, the sleeper coach has a direct sight line into the master bed room. The only interior door was to the bathroom and when that was closed there was no AC coming in.

Hopefully this helps you make your decision, the pros and cons really do balance themselves out. If you are wanting an affordable beach getaway this is a great location! The memories we made are priceless!!! I would book this property again if it was just my husband, the dog and I.

Weekend getaway on a budget

  • 3 of 5

Over all good experience. It was as expected for cost and age of the property. Location was good for getting around town easily but not so good on Sat night. We are not much on parties so we didn't care for the loud music coming from the Salty Dog across the street on Sat. night. Probably just should have walked over and joined them. AC seemed to be a little under sized to keep it cool at night and owner asked that you not run it below 72. At home we like to have the AC at 69 or 70 while sleeping. We didn't cook in the kitchen but it seemed to have the essentials. I would stay again.

I will use it again. Whatever is going on across the street from it is an eye sore, but I have no complaints with this property.

Quaint Affordable

  • 4 of 5

It's an okay place to stay and affordable.

The king bed is super comfy

The boys loved the living room couch/bed combo

Bathroom had poor lighting and the shower was kind of grim ( my least fav part of the place)

Pretty clean and like the fenced in yard for a pup.
