What guests are saying:
Nice house with everything you need and a great beach!
The home itself is wonderful and has everything you need. It is clean and well appointed. Looks just like the pictures. The beach right behind the home is wonderful!! Tough “stroll” over sand dunes to get to it (older folks may not be able to do it). It was fine for us. The reason for the 3 stars was that the main house was having a huge graduation party while we stayed next door. We were not informed of this ahead of time. They were up until all hours playing music and having a good time. There is no sound barrier at all between the two spaces. Add to that parking issues. I would ask before you rent this retreat, what’s going on next door. The house manager was wonderful and responsive. Probably would rent again if looking for a quick getaway and assured no parties next door.
Found this gem after a last minute change of plans. Plenty of room for our family of four with all the amminities you could need. Check-in/out was the easiest i have felt with. The property manager communicated the process in advance and was available during the stay if needed. The easy access to the beach was convenient with two young boys. We were able to make several trips between the house and beach to accommodate a sleepy four year old. The beach is advertised as semi-private, which, for us, meant the next closest group was 100 yards away in the middle of June. Our family makes an annual trip to the area and will be looking at this and the company's other properties first when planning our future trips.
