This was a good choice for us to spend time with our family. It's an easy walk to the beautiful beach, and we made good use of the pool, which was larger than we anticipated. We didn't realize that the shed near the gate contained beach and pool stuff, so we added to the collection with our purchases. The house was comfy, and a nice fit for our family. The construction going on next door was a pain at times (e.g., contractors blocking our driveway), but the good news is that they finished working on it while we were there. We were turned off by the condition of the barbecue grill -- it should really be replaced for safety reasons. All in all, it worked out very well for us. Read more

Hello "Beach House Value"!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your vacation at this house. You are correct! The pool has a nice size to refresh and swim a few laps. Thanks for bringing the grill condition to our attention. The house next door is now totally done and available for rent as well!

The house was awesome. My kids loved the huge pool, and short walk to the beach. I could sit on the front porch and watch them walk down to the beach. My family begged to buy the house so we could live there year round.
