The proximity to the beach was great, but other than that, this house was expensive for what it is. It’s so incredibly small. The air conditioning in the bedrooms barely works. Every night we were sweating so bad. The house sways, so when you’re sleeping, you can feel the bed moving. The master bathtub does not drain and it feels like the floor is sinking there. The water and ice in the fridge didn’t work which was a huge added cost when having access to trustworthy and clean water is basically a basic need it was ridiculous that the house didn’t have it. The kitchen size was insane how small it is. It’s clear that whoever own this hasn’t put a lick of work into the home in decades. There’s mold growing on the sink in the master. There’s one measly picnic table downstairs, so we couldn’t even eat down there with our 10 people that the house allowed. Given that it allows 10 people, the kitchen only sits 6. The couches, which there were so many of, were such disgusting material that sitting on them was just disgusting because it was that thick like wool material that collects sand and dirt. All the roku tv channels were expired because Netflix and Hulu weren’t paid for. Idk the house was so expensive for what we got. If I were you, I’d get a nicer house a step or two back if it meant walking a little further to the beach but having a nicer space. Or, just come with like 2-4 people max because the bedrooms are also so incredibly close. The grill had gas ready for it but it wasn’t almost comical because the grill was decades old and didn’t work. We let it heat up for 15 minutes, put our meat on, and let it sit for over 10 minutes and it did nothing but put old black grill marks on uncooked meat. I personally would never stay here again.

It's the perfect beach house. Roomy open concept main area; 3 bedrooms with a king and 2 queen comfortable beds; felt like home. Two large balconies (front and back) and under house deck area with tables and seating. The bonus, the house sits right on the beach! You walk out from the under deck right to the sand and feet from the water. We stayed during the week, so the beach felt private.
