Great place to stay in OOB!

5 of 5
This was my first time renting a house up in OOB...the place was great! Perfect location...only a few houses down from the beach, and a short walk to the center. The apartment is super-clean, and nicely decorated. Loved the fact that there was a front porch to hang out and relax on. Will definitely stay here again. =)
