Excellent gathering place for family and friends! We love to see generational families gathered here. Beautiful beach walks and star lit beach fires.

The tidal pools have been teeming with fish, crabs, starfish, etc. The sunroom is a cozy room to watch the sun rise and set, and the wild life activity on the water. Rain or shine, the sunroom gives you an amazing waterfront view of the ocean and its ever changing view. See herons, seals, fish jump, bald eagles, mallards, geese, bunnies, deer, and many more varieties. There is a fire pit outdoors, surrounded by lawns. There are four separate outdoor spaces created, allowing room for all to enjoy either the sun or shade. The main sundeck is huge, with hot tub, shower with hot and cold water!, bar style seating, barbq,

outdoor furniture, and conversation table with fire pit

Take time to relax in the hot tub 25 ft away from oceans waves,on the large upper deck, and soak away the days activities. Hot tub cover has an easy lift system to remove it.

Another wonderful family visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at Nola and Brad's house by the sea. We come here with our children and grand-children and the house and location are perfect for family times. Everything is provided both in house and yard for adventure seeking, quiet games or family memories sitting in what we call the "seaside room" sipping wine and losing at cards to our grand-kids! Whether you are an "indoors" or "outdoors" group, you will find everything you need to have good times. Thanks again Brad and Nola for your kind consideration on our visits.

Vacation on a nature reserve!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Nola and Brad's place in August 2017 with family and friends from Germany. We absolutely loved it! Every morning we grabbed our coffees and sat on the deck, watching the beauty of nature at our doorstep. Bald eagles, deers in our yard, seals swimming by, fresh oysters off the beach. It was heaven! The house was well-equipped and the owners were very attentive. The beds were very comfortable and the linens and towels were all in great condition. The house also came with an amazing amount of beach equipment - kayaks, life jackets, floatation devices - a sandbox loaded with toys. Thanks again Nola and Brad for a wonderful week!

What a wonderful place to spend a week! There was plenty of room for our whole family including small children. Nola and Brad pay attention to details: there were playpens, strollers and a high chair which made things easier. We could fence off the road so we did not have to worry about the little ones. We spent a lot of time in the sun room and on the deck! The property is incredible, and having access to kayaks and plenty of toys for the kids made it all the more enjoyable. All we had to bring was food and clothing. Nola and Brad were just a telephone call away, should we have needed anything. We would definitely go again!
