Great beachside getaway at twin lakes. Walking distance to beach, awesome hot tub and grill, great beach cottage decor. Absolutely perfect in every way!
Lovely place, very clean, excellent location. Hot tub is a plus. 5 minute easy walk to a very nice beach. Quiet neighborhood. Nancy was very easy to work with. Would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for a great week. Perfect place for my husband and I. We will be back!
Nancy was a great hostess. She made sure that we had everything that we needed to check in, and upon arrival, there was a binder with further information about the area. The home is basically on the beach...so close! When you walk in, you're in the living area. On one side of the living area is a bedroom with a full bath and washer dryer in it and on the other side of the living area is the kitchen and then the master bedroom with a full bath in it. It was perfect for our family of 4...and Nancy even provided a pack-n-play for us so that we didn't have to rent one or figure out the sleeping situation for our newborn :) I would definitely stay here again. Oh, and she refunded my deposit less than 12 hours from check-out. Highly recommend!
My husband, son and I stayed in the cottage for a week and had a great time. It's well maintained and and has a cute outdoor space to dine. We really loved being able to walk to the beach. Nancy was really thoughtful leaving us a bottle of wine to start our vacation. The house has all the necessities for making dinner and we really loved going to the Crows Nest for a meal -- that view!! We can't wait to return.
