“Captain Obvious” knows that you and your family are going to have an amazing time in this stunning vacation home! Located directly on the oceanfront, beautiful ocean views and salty breezes are yours to enjoy throughout your stay. With twelve master bedrooms and a wide variety of upscale amenities, your entire family will love making memories here. Dogs are welcome too, as this home is pet friendly.

The top level of the main home was designed for gathering, with an open concept great room. Views of the ocean out of the large windows serve as the perfect backdrop. Relax with loved ones in the comfortably furnished living area, which includes a gas fireplace for use during the cooler months of the year. Step out onto the deck to enjoy the ocean breeze, either in the sunshine or the shade, as there are sun decks and covered decks on the top level. There is a private den/library on the top level, perfect for those who must work while on vacation or those who would like to sneak away with a good book. Getting luggage and groceries to the upper levels of the home is a breeze using the elevator. The kitchen is equipped to accommodate your entire family, with three refrigerators, two ovens, two stoves, a wine cooler, and plenty of counter space. Enjoy meals at the large oceanfront dining table nearby. Barstool seating is also available. When it’s time to clean up after family meals, two dishwashers are a huge help. Everyone will love playing in the game room, which includes a pool table, shuffleboard, air hockey, card table, and an arcade game. There is one master bedroom on the top level, with a private bathroom, deck access, and a gorgeous ocean view. A half bathroom can also be found on the top level of the main home.

Three additional master bedrooms are available in the guest house on the third floor. Each of the master bedrooms has a private entrance, accessible from the covered decks on the west side of the home. Each of the three master bedrooms includes a private bathroom. Two of the master bedrooms open to a private covered deck. The master bedrooms connect via interior doors, making the guest house a favorable sleeping situation for families with small children. There are exterior stairs on the covered deck that connect the third and second levels of the guest house. Take family movie night to an epic new level in the theater room on the second floor of the guest house. The theater room is conveniently equipped with a wet bar, for easy access to snacks and drinks, as well as a half bathroom. A spacious screened porch completes the second floor of the guest house.

On the middle floor of the main home, there are eight additional master bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. Six of the master bedrooms also include access to the deck, which includes a hot tub. Relax and enjoy a restorative soak in the hot tub while gazing up at the stars in the dark night sky. The private walkway to the beach connects to the second floor deck as well. The laundry room on the second floor is equipped with a wet bar, so snacks and cold drinks can be available without going up to the third floor.

The ground floor was planned with outdoor living in mind. Take a dip in the generously sized private pool, which includes a swim-up bar and tanning ledge. Two additional hot tubs can be found in the pool area as well. If lounging around in the pool area is more your speed, there is a covered outdoor bar with a refrigerator and a ping pong table. On chilly evenings, sit by the poolside gas fireplace, which includes a water feature. The cabana area is equipped with a TV, so you can watch a movie or the big game while you listen to the waves in the background. On top of the cabana, there is a sun deck that overlooks the pool area. The sun deck can be reached from all three levels of the home via exterior stairs. Plan a big family cookout during your stay, as there is an impressive grilling area and an outdoor dining area nearby. There’s truly something for everyone in your group in the outdoor living area. Two outdoor showers and a half bathroom complete the spectacular outdoor living space. Dry entry to the home is available on the ground floor, as well as covered parking for up to eight vehicles.

"The view and proximity to the beach. We stayed at this house several years ago and noted the improvements made to it but it is still in need of some improvements. The house has a great layout and works very well for our family."

Laura Lee   ·  Stayed July 2022

"The home is comfortable with great views of the ocean. Family room with lots of seating, large dining table and kitchen counter with stools are great amenities. The well stocked kitchen and first floor refrigerator added to the enjoyment of meal preparation. The pool and hot tub provided further enjoyment for the families. This year, the pool table was a hit with the younger children. We especially liked the smart TV and being able to log into our own streaming services."
