Steps from your front door you can play with the local dolphins or watch whales swim by! It truly is paradise.

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

Michelle's house feels just like home. This was my 5th year visiting. Michelle & Rollo are always accommodating and available for any questions or anything that may go wrong. The house has everything you could possible need except your own clothes. We only bring groceries they have all the pot, pans, dishes and plates etc...as well as the spices you need to cook and more. The beach is so close you can run back and forth all day if you choose to stay at the beach. This is our family tradition that i don't see ending anytime soon. Thank you again Michelle and Rollo.

A great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this location. It was perfect for the 7 adults and baby. We loved the location to the beach. Walking was so quick and easy. We appreciated the use of all the beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, bikes as we flew in from New York State. Loved how it was equipped with paper products and other things we could use as well. The place was very comfortable. Loved the private back patio as well as the table and barbecue in front which we used every night. We had a lovely time with our kids and their families that are spread across the country. The best vacation ever! Very relaxing! Thanks for everything! Nice to be able to add a night to our stay. Very accommodating! We would come back!

cozy and sweet

  • 5 of 5

i loved this cozy little home, with a warm and inviting living room, plenty of room and two little doves in the courtyard. being close to the beach, i got plenty of beach time in. it was quiet at night, with a little bustle on the street, but was not overly distracting. the home was very clean when i arrived and had plenty of furniture to lounge in and space to eat in the kitchen. parking my car in the garage worked, but it was a little hard to pull in to. it is difficult parking on the street in this area during the summer, so it was great to have the garage space. i also really loved watching the doves in the courtyard!! thank you rollo for being so helpful and michelle for a lovely stay!

Great house, awesome location! :)

  • 5 of 5

We got this rental VERY last minute and totally had a blast! It is very close to the beach and conveniently located to other great spots. We brought our own bikes (we have 2 young kids) and we had a BLAST riding up and down the path along the beach! So much to see and do!

It has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place! The amenities are fantastic! There's beach chairs, boogie boards, kids toys, and bicycles. Inside is everything you need except groceries! The place is very clean, plenty of seating for everyone, and even a private patio area. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room for everyone. The beach is only a block away, and stores and restaurants are nearby. We will definitely come back here again!

Relaxing family time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacationed here at the beach house. The house is very clean, and comfortable. Just a short walk to the sand, not crowed. We had an awesome time. My wife and I took a little time to ourselves on the beach and relaxed on the sand. All our chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, for the beach are provided, that is very nice. Michelle was available for any questions and very helpful. We definately hope to return next year. I would recommend the place all my family and friends.
