Nicely designed house VERY close to the beach and stores/restaurants. This home is well outfitted with dinnerware. Not noisy. Beds are comfy. The ice maker and wine chiller are a nice bonus.

This house was perfect for my family. We loved the location, the views, the layout of the house, everything! I wish we had another big family trip so I could go to this house again!

  27. How does the pool alarm work?

    Asked by Anthony 5/21/2013

    Answer Anthony, when a pool is alarmed, there is a button or switch on the wall or woodwork near all the doors that have access to the pool area, and high enough to be out of reach of children. An alarm will sound throughout the home if the door is opened without touching the button or switch first.
