Perfect family wedding vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful at Michelle's beach house!! Rollo was fantastic and a wealth of information! The beach is so close and the neighborhood is very friendly!! I would reccomend a coffee pot that turns off after a set period of time. Also, the lock for the orange bike doesn't seem to open with the code on the cheat sheet. However, 5the accommodations were perfect in every other way with plenty of beach toys, umbrellas and chairs!! We loved it and will definitely be back!!

The proximity to the beach & safe bike paths, and all the equipment to enjoy it made this a wonderful week for ourselves, our children & their spouses and grandchildren from ages 12 to 3. Generous numbers of beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, bikes, coolers, and the fully equipped kitchens made it easy to enjoy our stay & feel right at home. Perfect spot for us, with comfortable indoor spaces along with BBQ & spacious outdoor dining. Highly recommend this rental!!

Family Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

Great location with comfortable and clean accommodations. Extremely responsive to any needs! They have everything you need to enjoy the beach and it includes bikes to get around to the many stores and restaurants close by.

This was our 3rd year - we stay for 2 weeks every summer and have had a great experience each time. We're looking forward to next year!

our stay was a perfect place for our family who loves the ocean and a perfect place for us.

  • 5 of 5

The vacation home is very clean and has all the accommodations a family needs to relax and have fun, bikes, beach chairs, and all the extras needed. Our family would highly recommend the home to friends and any one who loves the ocean which is steps away. The owner is very accurate in the description of the home.

Cozy, spacious and great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 days in May at this rental with my large family of 16 (4 children) and we could not have been happier with the selection. We rented both units (upper and lower) and the setup of the rooms and beds was perfect for us. The units are very well decorated and furnished and were very clean upon our arrival. The units were stocked with all the dishes and utensils we could possible need which made preparing meals easy and delightful. Dining was well accommodated by plentiful inside and patio seating. While we did not spend a lot of time in the units due to the proximity to the beach and restaurants, the unit was equipped with high speed wifi, satelite tv, a giant chess/checkers board, and plenty of interesting books that were enjoyed by our group. Both Michelle and Rollo (owners) were very helpful and responsive and were committed to ensuring we had a wonderful stay. Rollo met us at the units on time and was very helpful getting us settled in (and even threw a history lesson of the area for good measure).

Overall, we were very happy with these units and would definitely rent here again.
