Very nice, well maintained home. Kudos to the homeowner for regular upkeep. We have taken our dog with us for many years and it has been difficult to find a nice place that also takes dogs. We will likely be back to this property!

A great home with awesome amenities. Convenient location - centrally located - within minutes of shopping, dining, tourist attractions yet far off the main road. This home was a great value and accommodated our group very well. No problems encountered during our stay. All items in the home worked as they should - HVAC, appliances, televisions, hot tubs, door locks ... we would definitely rent this one again!

Hi, Can you see the ocean from the gazebo or do the dunes obstruct the view? Do you have to use public access for beach or are there steps on the other side if the gazebo? Thanks!
