Ratings & Reviews
We love this home, and we have rented this house for 3 years in a row because we enjoy it so much. It's nicely decorated, great furniture and room for everyone. The pool and hot tub are well taken care of. This house is located in a nice neighborhood (right next to a grocery store, which is very convenient) and there's a great walkway that takes you right to the beach.
