5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Home!
This property is really nicely furnished and is very comfortable for a family stay. The kitchen, though on the small side, is a cook’s dream with top- of - the line appliances and ample cookware and utensils. The bedding and beds were super comfy and the porches front and back great for hanging out with the family. Property management was super helpful and accommodating. The ponds out front give a mystical feel to the property and we enjoyed watching the “pet” koi! Brother in law did take a dip in the pond and said it was great. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars across the board is that the property is on a fairly busy road directly across from a public beach park. It can get noisy at times with kids partying- music and loudness. It really didn’t bother us too much and the kids were mostly respectful and cleaned up after themselves. Just noted for those of you who this might be sensitive to noise. The beach area is lovely though. A great stay for sure!

5/5 Excellent

Awesome stay
Warm welcome from Pepe, great location right across from beach parks where you can find sea turtles

5/5 Excellent

Unique, cozy spot across from the ocean
We had a great stay here. The layout is a bit odd, with two of the bedrooms accessible from the outside, but it worked for our kids. Very nice porch to view the ponds and plants as well as the ocean across the street. Only issue was there were a bunch of pretty noisy kids for much of the time across the street. They had loud music and were squealing their tires over and over again, but otherwise they seemed harmless. Not sure how typical that is. Aside from that, it's an ideal place to stay and Pepe was extremely helpful and accommodating.

5/5 Excellent

100% Recommend
Absolutely no complaints. To keep it simple everyone was very happy with the rental and we’ve decided to make this a yearly thing. Just found my new favorite beach house!!!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely Family Stay-cation
This beautiful historic home was a joy to be able to stay in for the weekend. We felt so blessed and grateful to be able to stay in this residence. The pond in the front is the cherry on top. We would stay in this home again in a heart beat. Thank you to Pepe and his wife.
