Fantastic Getaway Condo

5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this condo for a quick getaway for New Years Eve and we had great experience. The bay views are incredible and the home was in pristine condition. We'll definitely be staying there again in the warm weather to take advantage of the kayaks offered.

Thanksgiving Family Reunion

5 of 5
This house was perfect for our family reunion. It had plenty of living space, bedrooms and bathrooms for our group of 14. It was a very comfortable house and everyone was very happy. Loved the location. Close proximity to town and beach-all within walking distance. Great vacation destination. Would definitely book again and recommend to friends.
