We just returned from out second stay at your beautiful cottage, it was fabulous. Weather was must better than last year making our stay even more enjoyable than last year.

You have the most wonderful sunsets to sit and watch with a glass of wine.

Looking forward to coming back next year.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at the cottage. Definitely something we will remember forever. The kids loved the house and being able to walk right on to the beach in the morning. Susan and her family made our stay coming all the way from California easy. Anything we needed, they were extremely helpful time and time again. From providing fishing poles, to boards for the kids, to extra towels, we had all we needed and more. Thank you so much! We look forward to a future stay.

Sunsets, Osprey & forever sandbars!

  • 5 of 5

Our annual stay in Ned & Sue's picture perfect beachfront home, is the highlight of our summer. The house is comfortable, clean, and well stocked, with a view that can't be beat. It's apparent, through the attention to the small details throughout the home, that Ned & Sue care about their renters having a good experience.

See you next year!

The beach cottage is a beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend a couple of weeks there over the past three years. Each year there has been some improvements, some large and some small, making the stay even more enjoyable. The cottage is close enough to stores and things to do, but private enough to enjoy the water and the sunsets. Ned and Sue are nearby and extremely supportive. I have enjoyed all my time at the beach cottage and plan to continue my stays there.
