Perfect for our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at this property and just loved it! It sits in such a nice quiet community, and the beach is great!! House and yard were plenty big enough for the kids to play. Very short drive to Warren Dunes State Park as well! The house is very clean and well stocked with anything you could need while visiting. Overall we had a great experience and would book this rental again!

Great stay! SO much to do!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, perfect for my family of four. We took a short 5 minute walk to the private beach which was so peaceful. If we'd wanted, we could have walked a quarter of a mile down the beach and we would have been at the beach near the Dunes. Silver Beach was great and our kids could have played in the Compass Fountain all day if we'd let them.

We did have to reset some breakers once while there but no big deal.

It might be a nice idea to stock the fridge with basic condiments but we were good because I'd brought my own just in case. Thank you for the stay and we look forward to visiting again!

Nice place near beautiful private beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice place, and AC window and portable unit worked really well. We spent most of our time at the south beach with our four young children, and it was wonderful, and easy to keep our eyes on them! Beds were not very comfortable, but overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

The house had everything we needed for our trip. It's simple and stocked with all the necessities.

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and stayed for a few days to celebrate our last month before a new addition to our family. We found a nice place to start a tradition! Love how close it is to warren dunes, the roads and terrain in the subdivision help preserve the natural landscape and the close proximity to the beach was just what we needed for morning and sunset walks with our fur baby and time during the day for the rest of us. We enjoyed grilling and a fire and the proximity to stores was great for where we were. Nothing like waking up to the birds and falling asleep to the crickets.

A wonderful home where the whole family had their own space, but could also be together.

  • 4 of 5

Easy beach access. Close to a small playground- which our children loved. Plenty of room for our 6 adults and 2 children. Kitchen well stocked with needed appliances and place settings.

Only negatives: there was quite a bit of dust/dirt on main floors...which was a challenge with littles crawling around on the first day.
