Great beach house, very spacious, walk over to the beach. Pros: Right on the beach, nice beach views from almost every bedroom. Cons: Walk over to beach needs cleaned up & broken wood pallet needs replaced. Worst part of our vacation...no hot water, never got hot water in the kitchen. Had to run the faucet water to just get some hot water in the showers. Overall, would rent this house again.

Place was perfect for our group... Very clean and ready to go as soon as we walked in! Suggestions: 1. Needs a new grill. Possibly a propane which should be provided. (Bringing everything from home is a chore) 2. Pictured firepit was not available. Brought wood, but couldnt use. 3. Fix/extend the boardwalk. Beach was not accessible. 4. Our group was there to fish. Sports guys could not watch the NFL Network. Possibly extend your cable package. 5. Too many remotes. Either consolidate or label and provide written instructions.
