  • Girls weekend getaway!


    We enjoyed our stay at this house! There was plenty of beds and the weather was perfect for us to have a bonfire! The wood provided was a little green but burnt well after we got the coals nice and hot. The beach was a quick walk away and a great place to relax and catch some sun. There was plenty of great beach stuff at the house but the umbrella was older and looked broken so we didn't take it. I would rent this house again! If your looking for a place that has a lot of places to eat or things to do, this isn't your area. It was fantastic for laughs and relaxation for a group of friend whom go away once a year to forget the real world for a few days.

  • get away to the beach


    property was very nice and as described, Quiet neighborhood and close walk to the beach. Beach was very nice. Did not expect boats to park so close to the beach- too many boats. House and location great.

    We wanted to be close to the Dunes, and I have never stayed closer in my life!!! This was a gorgeous little house, with lots of beautiful beachy vibes, family focused, and so close to the beach that we walked to/from for meals without having to worry about a thing. It also has a wooded backyard that makes it feel secluded, private, and like you are in the forest (while listening to the waves!). The hostess was extremely responsive when we needed her. We will definitely be booking this same residence for a later family trip. We took our 4 kids and everyone had a bed, which NEVER happens. So many happy memories. THANK YOU!
