Loved the house and the location

5 of 5
This house is clean, spacious and cute. You can tell the owners put a lot of thought in to how it is stocked and decorated. It is well-maintained. Our favorite things about the house were outdoors. We enjoyed the large yard, the hammock, and the outdoor shower because we had a very hot week. The kitchen has everything you need to cook at home. We enjoyed eating out on the breezeway and the patio. It was nice that there was a TV with cable and a DVD player. We even took advantage of a book on the shelves and one of many games on hand. The location was wonderful. Close to the beach and away from the traffic. We didn't feel that we had to pack up everything to go to the beach, because it took just 3 minutes to walk back to eat or whatever. No need to pay for parking either. They had beach chairs available, so we didn't have to find room in our car for them. We enjoyed the Skipper Restaurant and the views from there. Also Seaview beach and the beautiful sun rises. A couple of restaurants we were disappointed with included Giardinos and the Pancake Man. Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with and answered all my many questions before and after booking. I would recommend this property to others.
