Reviewer Comments: Aside from having extremely loud neighbors, we had a great tie staying at Santorini. The house was perfect for us, clean, cozy and so perfectly close to the beach!Seascape properties was very friendly and accomodating.

                                                              We enjoyed our stay at this house. Great view of the ocean and private beach access. Only a few minute walk to the beach. House was clean and had everything we needed. Adorable and comfortable furnishings. Very easy to deal with the owners and property manager.

                                                              Just what we needed. Space for family time.

                                                              Great family home near Camp Lejeune, beaches, and restaurants in a nice neighborhood. Perfect place for our family to reunite and enjoy family time sharing meals and playing our favorite games. Flowering landscape was beautiful and wooded lot that begged to be explored. Owners live next door and were very welcoming and helpful.
