Thank you for opening your house to us. We enjoyed the beautiful location and fabulous home. Your home was very comfortable to live in. The exterior pool and hot tub area was great place to spend time. Thank you again for sharing your home.
If you are looking for an all-weather beach rental, consider renting Black Pearl from Twiddy Rentals. Black Pearl has a heated indoor pool and a large outside pool, hot tub, and sauna in addition to outside and inside gas fireplaces. It is a semi-beach front home, with access to beach only a few feet from the front driveway. All of the furnishings and amenities are plentiful and in good condition. For our family get-togethers we take turns cooking, and our cooks for the week raved about the completely equipped kitchen that did not want for anything -- not even storage containers for the leftovers. Enjoy the convenience of the ice-maker and wine cooler. Bedrooms are spacious and all have private baths. We did not use the rooms designed for the kids, but there were several. If you are older, like we are, you will appreciate the elevator to get your supplies to the top floor. The master bedrooms have a balcony or direct access to decks via sliding doors. A Nor'easter was blowing for part of our week,
It had everything that you need. shopping was near. The beach was real close
