Beautiful spacious home, amazing views

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! My parents, his parents and my grandmother, sister and neice comfortably stated it was a trip to remember. Beautifully decorated and the immediate access to the beach can't be overlooked. Hope to be able to experience this home again in the future!

This beach house is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time over the Christmas holiday in this beautiful beach house! Our grandchildren loved the bunk room and the spacious decks were especially enjoyed when relaxing in the evenings. The house is very roomy and comfortable and we enjoyed every part of our vacation! We highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to just relax and enjoy the beach with family and friends.

Great Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 4 kids. Never felt crowded and ate like kings! I fried two 13 lb turkeys on Thanksgiving and did not have leftovers(dogs ate well too) Overall weather was great and we had a blast. Summer the owner was real nice and easy to work with. This has become a yearly tradition.
