The house is very roomy, decorated beautifully, and could not be in a better location!! Since we were just steps from the ocean, it was so easy for everyone to just come and go from the beach all day. We also enjoyed hanging out on the deck and on the swings underneath the house in the evening while we grilled. Wifi and cable a big plus, too! Overall, we could not have asked for a better vacation and highly recommend Lt. Dan to anyone looking for an awesome beach house!

The deck and beach chairs were our favorite spot while we drip dried from the "after beach" waterhose shower downstairs. Inside, there is plenty of room to move around, lots of sleeping space and the beds were all comfy, even the bunk beds. (the teens agreed) There's also a variety of movies and games to keep them entertained in the down times. In the kitchen and bathrooms, lots of linens, toilet paper, paper towels, dishes and cookware, utensils. There's even handsoap and dish soap. I was pleasantly surprised to see the cabinets had the basic staples like salt, pepper, miscellaneous spices, sugar, cooking oil and spray and even a few dry goods. The refrigerator had slightly used condiments like mustard, mayo, ketchup, butter, bbq sauce, even Aloe Vera gel for the sunburns they knew we'd get! Whether it was supplied by the house or just previous tenants, THANK YOU ♡ In turn, I left a few misc items that can be used again. We stayed on the island all 4 days and will be back as often as we can. The ferry ride over was free and relaxing. Bring your groceries or you can purchase everything you need and MORE at the Big Store down the road. Pack your personal hygiene items, sunscreen and bathing suit, that's all you need! The beach is about a block away so bring beach toys and enjoy the R&R. Mr. And Mrs. Graves, thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beach home. Sincerely, Terrence and Regina Ervin
