A Great Holiday Getaway
My wife and I enjoyed our stay with our pup. The beach was really accessible and was a great walk even during the winter time. We enjoyed a nearby park and the Christmas lights. The house was clean and had plenty of space. We would highly recommend!

Holiday Celebration
Our family rented the property to celebrate the Holidays as a family. The property exceeded our expectations. The hosts were very responsive to all of our questions and even went above and beyond to add a DVD player to the home so we could enjoy a family Christmas movie together. The weather was perfect in December and we were able to walk along the beach :) We came off season, but I bet this would be absolutely stunning in the summer. We had such a great time, we will be renting again next year!
