Waking up early to watch the sunrise ... on the beach. Watching a storm roll in ... on the beach. Enjoying a campfire ... on the beach. Taking a nap ... on the beach. Walking for miles and miles ... on the beach. If you are like me and look forward to a relaxing/ do "nothing" vacation all year, this is your place. If you travel with others/teenagers/kids that require more action, you are not far from whatever they can dream up. Fishing, biking, kayaking, shopping, restaurants ... it's all there. Still, my answer to the ubiquitous "What are we doing today?" is always the same: "THIS. THIS is what we are doing. THE BEACH. Sarah has done a wonderful job renovating this awesome, authentic beach house. It is lovely, comfortable and highly functional ... if you crave a week at the beach, you will be in heaven!
We stayed here Labor Day week 2017. One of the nicest homes we have rented in a long time. From grandparents to grandson, it was comfortable in every way. A pretty, updated home located directly on the water. Easily sleeps 6-8, fully stocked kitchen, decorated with the beach in mind. Sarah, (owner) is a wonderful host. We enjoyed the beach, golf nearby, and great restaurants. This home is located before the bridge, which made our travels so easy. Located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood, going to bed early or arising before the sun was very important to us. The canal is approximately a mile away, allowing for incredible views of the ships. We would prefer to rent directly from an owner rather than a real estate agent. We find that it is a better experience and gives us piece of mind. This is truly a gem. Definitely will go back.
When we arrived on Saturday we took one look at this adorable cottage and couldn't believe our luck - and that was before we walked up and saw the amazing view from the deck. The ocean truly is just steps away.
The interior of this place is unbelievably charming, and you can tell how much love and care has gone into this house. Our host was so thoughtful, every detail was taken care of so we could truly just enjoy our stay.
This is one of the most gorgeous beaches we've ever stayed on - a long stretch of soft sand perfect for walks, and being private keeps it quiet and uncrowded. Perfect for a good book and a nap under the umbrella.
We barely left this place (with a beach like this, why would you want to?) but there are great shops and restaurants a quick drive away.
We had such a wonderful stay, it was one of the high points of our summer and we will definitely be back.
