The home was perfect and contained everything anyone would need. We really did not have to bring anything other than ourselves and foe and drink

- Paul 5/14/2016

This house is amazing the owners have thought of everything. The bunk room for the kids is perfect. The enclosed bar area next to the pool works great for those chilly days or to just get you out of the sun. The Gazebo on top of the dune was amazing also.

- Joshua 4/23/2016

We love the layout of the house and appreciated the owner extending our stay. This year we were able to take advantage.
