                                                              An absolutely gorgeous home. The photos do not do this home justice; every room is spacious and inviting. We were travelling with a group of 8 adults, and never felt cramped anywhere in the house.The kitchen is well stocked and leads to an extremely large deck that is so close to the beach. We could not have chosen a more beautiful home or better location. The owner was easy to work with on our arrival time, and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome.

                                                              Perfect stay at the beach . couldn't ask for a more perfect house on the beach the only thing that would make it a 10 would have been the weather. But the facility more than made up for the weather. Town people can,t be beat, friendly and helpful. We really look forward to our next stay.
