5/5 Excellent

I don't think a location could be better situated than this one! The house is cool and comfortable with plenty of space for the 5 of us. Stepping outside you could feel the ocean breeze. It was lovely.

Great location
We liked the location, right across the street from the beach. The house was clean and alot of necessities were there in the house (towels, blender, silver wear, cups plates). The only complaint I have is the air conditioner right outside the bedroom windows. Every time it turned on it was so loud it woke me up. Other than that it was a great stay.

Nice, clean cottage. Comfy beds. Close to beach.
The cottage was nice and clean. The beds were very comfortable. Shannon was very professional and pleasant about taking care of some unfinished wet laundry. We had some difficulties with the icemaker and the warm water controls in the shower. But, overall we enjoyed our short vacation and will return for our next trip to the beach.
