Beautiful Home!.. the best stocked kitchen of any place we have ever stayed. Large house allows everyone 'space'. Walk way and gazebo to ocean nice feature. The pool is rather small for such a large home.

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

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.
