Best time ever

Tammy J.


The pictures did not do the property just. It was just beautiful and just a 5 minute walk to the beach. The location was outstanding, all our favorite restaurants very close by, The fenced in backyard was a beautiful oasis. We come to the area 3 times a year.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The location was perfect area for going to the beach and all other activities we were attending. The house was very comfortable and spacious. It was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed for our stay there.

Very pretty house! (Family Tides)

Tyler R.


The house was very pretty! We had an awesome time! The only complaint I would have is, the power in the laundry room went out two days before we checked out and was still out when we left. Wet towels in a suitcase aren’t fun. Other than that, it was an awesome vacation. We would consider staying here again.

Cute and updated house

Dana R.


Upon arriving, the house had a “musty” smell probably due to the age of the house and being closed up. Once we got things opened up and the air and fans going it was not even noticeable. Overall the house is very cute and updated. We did not have a blender but the rental agency promptly got us a new one. I would say the 2 main downfalls, which we knew ahead of time, is no washer and dryer and no dishwasher(kinda gross not knowing how well the previous renters cleaned everything) but we just used all paper products and scrubbed the pots before use. The house was very well stocked with towels so no washer & dryer was more of an inconvenience if we wanted to wash our beach towels or clothes. The house was very clean and the location to the beach is great! Plenty of room to park cars. Only giving 4 stars because I think the addition of a dishwasher and laundry equipment would make it prefect. Overall, a great stay and I would recommend.
