Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Home was perfect for what we were looking for in our stay. Clean, close to the beach, cozy, and well stocked. Owner was very attentive, easy to get in touch with, and polite. There was an issue with the AC during our stay, and he had someone out working on it in less than 24 hours (not that it was a big deal this time of year, the weather was great), but it just goes to show how important guest satisfaction is to him. We will absolutely be back.

Very nice, clean home

  • 5 of 5

Clean and cute. Great for our group of 4 kids and 2 adults. Love the wraparound porch with views of water between houses. Within walking distance of beach. Well equipped kitchen. Nice bathroom. Bring DVDs though. TV had no reception we could find. Landlord was communicative and responds promptly.

Gorgeous house very close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

Very lovely house with all the accommodations. A short 3 minute walk to the beach. A gorgeous view of the water from the deck! The owners were very friendly and helpful. The house was in great shape and had everything we needed for our stay. I will definitely be renting here again on my next beach vacation weekend.

Comfortable house near a pleasant beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over a long Labor Day weekend. The house is cool and convenient. We had 6 adults and 2 babies. The beach is in sight and short walk away. It is a peaceful beach, even on a holiday weekend. Francisco was very helpful and generous, making sure things worked out for us well. He was a great owner to work with.
