Initially thought the cottage was great. But it even got better as we were able to see a couple other cottages at Hawks Nest. The owner did an excellent job remodeling. Everything is new and very clean, compared to the others we saw. Very good beach environment for kids!! If we do another beach vacation, would definitely rent here again.
