Ratings & Reviews
This is the third year we've stayed in this house. We love the oceanfront location, and it's very conveniently located near supermarkets, restaurants and shopping. The great room has lots of windows to let in the sun and ocean view. The liked the decor, and the kitchen had all the utensils we needed for the basics.

Yes. The house was perfect for our family of 3 children 2 parents and 2 grandparents. The master bedroom had a king bed and huge bathroom with tub and shower and a dune view with sliding glass doors to a balcony. The queen bedroom also faced the dunes and had a sliding glass door. The other king bedroom had a door to the balcony but faced the side. Everything was there that we needed and more including movies, pool toys, beach chairs, boogie board, sand buckets. I would stay here again anytime the kids loved the pool I loved coffee on the top deck facing the ocean. Very close to 2 shopping centers/ grocery stores and Duck Donuts. We walked to the little lake nearby and my granddaughter loved feeding the turtles. I was worried it might smell like dogs but it did not.
