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!
