  • Perfect for a duel family vacation!


    Beautiful cottage near the beach! Perfect for two families with a total of 9 people. Floor plan was great and the cottage is well decorated. It had everything we needed from a well stocked kitchen, board games to play with the kids and beach gear!

    The owner was attentive and very nice to work with. Thank you so much!

  • Great location and plenty of space.


    We had our annual family/friend vacation at the cottage. There were 9 in our party and we had plenty of space. The walk to the beach is easy and short. The listing is as advertised. Great place for a larger family!

  • beautiful place, great location


    We stayed for 3 nights in April for spring break, after a visit to New Orleans. The unit is exactly as pictured, very clean, modern & beautifully decorated. There are two sets of bunkbeds besides the beds in the bedrooms so easily sleeps 8 if 4 of your guests are kids. You'll have everything you need for the beach which is about a 2 block walk. Overall a great trip and we had a very comfortable stay.

    Property was just as listed- and AmAzing! Perfect for our combination of adults and kiddos. Pool is clean and well maintained. House/cottage was clean and had everything we could possibly need. Beach was close by. The location is Fantastic! We will definitely be back!
