"Love staying in this house out on the 4x4. Perfect size and location for us and our dog. Our second year in this home and nice to see the updates being made. The little extras available like the light up dog collars and flashlights were great! Such a relaxing place! We will be back!"
"Great access to beach and dog friendly."
"We love the location on the beach."
"New updates to kitchen and living room. Really cute house, great location!"
"We would rent again! A very nice house for a smaller group. The kitchen is very well appointed and supplied. The owner obviously care for their house."
"Owner upgraded water system and appliances. Much needed and many thanks. House is perfect now!"
"This home was perfect for our family of four plus our two small pups! There have been many updates to this home and many items in comments addressed. The walkway to the beach is wonderful, the layout of the home is very convenient, and the amenities were plenty! The house is surrounded by empty lot areas and the horses loved to graze there daily. There is an outdoor shower and foot spigots, a hot tub, plenty of nice chairs on the deck and a wonderful screened in table and chairs for meals. We enjoyed the tvs in each room, the washer and dryer, and the reliable Wi-Fi. We did bring water to drink due to reviews about the sulfur smell but some filtering must have been put in place because some areas were worse than others. Our dogs did not have a problem with the water and the ice in the fridge tasted fine. This was an amazing week and we will definitely be back and book this same home as a small oceanfront home is hard to find in this area."
"Loved staying out on the 4x4 beach. House was comfortable and clean! Perfect getaway for my husband and I and our pup! Kitchen was really well stocked and many updates had been done since the photos were posted. Beautiful views, relaxing hot tub, a quick walk to the beach down our own boardwalk! Saw lots of wildlife each day."
"We will be back!! This house was exactly what we were looking for. It is not a huge house but perfect for our pup, my husband and I. Could have fit at least another couple plus one more super comfortably. Home has had a few updates since the pictures but it’s still an older house with tons of charm. There are plenty of chairs to sit in on the decks and a nice bench at the end of the deck on the beach. The deck walk out towards the beach was helpful so we didn’t have to trek through the sand. The kitchen was equipped with everything to make a meal. It had all the pots and pans and appliances you would need. Bring normal convenience items such as paper towels, trash bags, tinfoil, dish soap, etc. but that seems pretty standard with these rentals. Do also bring bottled water, the water there smells of sulphur. I assume that’s just one of the disadvantages of 4X4 beach living and it definitely did NOT hamper our fantastic time. Every room had a Roku TV and comfortable seating. Beds were comfortable as well. It looks like the owner may be updating things one at a time. Some of the kitchen and some flooring looks new. The bathrooms are a bit outdated but there’s plenty of space for your personal items. Anything in this review that reads as criticism to anyone…it’s not at all. Just letting you know what to expect so you know what to bring. We had the best time here and will definitely return to this home."
"We have stayed at this beach house over many years and have always had a great time. It is such a lovely property and a rare find. It needs some loving care and clean up on the outside and down below, a new grill would benefit the house. The new owners pulled out the carpets downstairs and put in new flooring, easy to sweep. Kitchen was equipped sufficiently but appliances getting a bit worn. Twiddy was very responsive overcoming an issue with the water and had it immediately fixed. We also had a smoke alarm that needed batteries on a weekend and they had someone there right away. Overall I highly recommend staying here as always Twiddy takes great care of their clients. We will be back."
"This home was perfect for our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids and 1 dog)! It looked like it was recently updated. The only issue we had was that the house did not have a hose to rinse things off. Thanks for another great stay in 4x4!"
"Loved this awesome little beach house! the perfect beach getaway."
"We loved our stay at The Semantic Drift cottage. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything needed to prepare a meal. The upstairs Queen bed was comfortable but the other mattresses need updated as well. It's a short walk to the beach on the wood deck. Loved the views from the upper deck. The water is quite foul and we went through several cases of bottled water and ran low the last few days. Definitely need a water softener. Would be nice if linens were supplied as well as complimentary items like trash bags etc. It makes for a hard trip traveling from Ohio and trying to pack everything for a 7 day trip."
"This is a very cute oceanfront house. Our biggest complaint is that the water is bad with sulfur. We didn’t drink or even use it for cooking. Other then that the house needs minor repairs. The outside light on side porch doesn’t work. Also, there is no screen door on sliding glass doors. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here."
"Always a nice time at Sandbox Cottage. Reasonable price point and nice location!"
