We wish we could stay longer- clean, nicely decorated and comfortable accommodations. We enjoyed the private access to the beach. The hot tub and pool are nice as well. Bring beach chairs!

We booked based on location and the pictures, but the walk to get to the boardwalk was quite a ways away. It says it sleeps 7, but couldn’t find extra linens. There were no coffee filters. The place is a little banged up and a little dirty- chair was dirty, pillows were stained, throw pillows dirty, just needs some more tlc and for the price you are paying it should be spotless.

Was a wonderful place to stay. So roomy and clean. Hope to stay there many more times in the future. The beach was easily accessible. Lots of nice restaurants in the area.
