Cozy...very clean (in and out)...private...and close to the beach. We want the house to meet the standards we expect in a beach rental (yes.. we've rented many ourselves!)

Cozy Coastal Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place we enjoyed every minute of our stay this beach house is conveniently located in a nice neighborhood ,walking distance to a few stores and restaurants. The décor is very nice and the house is really clean. The private back yard and outdoor shower are great. The owners were kind giving many recommendations in the area and very responsive to any questions I had. The accommodations make it an extremely comfortable stay would strongly recommend it!

THE PERFECT Beach House !!

  • 5 of 5

This house is tastefully & expertly furnished.As you step into the interior you are immediately transported to your favorite days of lazing about on the beach with the aroma's of sea air & suntan lotion whirling around you.The home is VERY close to the Beach so even on cool or slightly rainy days you can walk the beach.The kitchen is well appointed with all the necessary appliance's and easy to maintain.The living room is very comfortable with plenty of seating for long conversations.TV has a large screen & directions to operate easy.The bedrooms also beautifully decorated and comfy.The closet's & drawers clean & ready to use.The bathroom sooo cute and very clean.The inside shower very good.The outside shower was fantastic.We loved it and used that shower almost exclusively.Overall this "Charming Beach House" was warm & inviting and was enjoyed very much by all guests on this memorable visit!!
