It was cozy, comfortable and had everything we needed. We had a small bridal shower there one night and we had plenty of room for 12-14 women! Our grandsons loved the Foosball table and we loved the warm and cozy beds.
Loved the place, everything was clean and neat.
No words to tell the awesome experience
Five starts, will come back next time
This was our 2nd stay at the BlueButterfly and it was as Great at the 1st time we were there. We stayed for 6 weeks and felt like we were at our own home. The neighbors already knew us, What a Great vacation house, it has everything you would need for a short stay or for an extended stay. The location of the home is an easy 1 block walk to the beach. The neighborhood is very quiet and the people are very friendly. We plan to return and we would Highly recommend the BlueButterfly as a place to stay.
The house was great! With bedrooms on three floors, we were able to separate when we wanted and be together when we wanted. Well stocked kitchen. Comfortable furnishings. Great beds. Loved the location and proximity to the beach. Three generations of women had a great weekend at the house.
The family had a ball. Clean, spacious, and packed with more amenities than I expected. Our teenage girls loved the beach and we were lucky to stay there during the air & water show festivities. Definitely recommended, great place for families! We'll be back next year!
A cute and well kept house with a gracious host. The place is especially fun for kids with the big bedroom and foozball table. And good proximity to the beach!
