This home is well-equipped and easily accommodated our group. It is in extremely close proximity to the beach and its location on the 4 x 4 beach allowed us to segment a portion of the beach to ourselves. Our family never returns to a house that we have vacationed in, solely with the intent of exploring different areas around the US, and after vacationing at this home, there was a suggestion of possibly returning to this house in a few years (if still available). Great experience overall!

Amy 6/6/2015

House has everything you'd need for vacation. Location is great and easy to get to. Furnishings and decor perfect for a casual beach vacation. Not afraid to put your feet up. We have spent the last three years at this house because we love it so much. This year we only needed 4 bedrooms, but still rented this 8 bedroom house.
