Very nice views

House was clean and the best part was the water view from both balconies.

We had a great time and plenty of room for kids and grandkids. Walking distance to the ocean was ideal. All eleven of us agree that we need to gather here again next year. Thanks from the Shorter Family.

trouble-free vacation - priceless!

We planned a vacation for ourselves, my brother's and my cousin's families. We had 10 people and we chose this house because there was an actual bed for each person. What we found surpassed our expectations. The house was immaculate, well-stocked and everything worked. (We had a brief glitch with the WiFi and the owner contacted support immediately and we were back in business). The view from the deck is awesome. Lots of outdoor seating to enjoy the sun or the shade. We walked to the beach several times a day and an outside water source allowed us to rinse off before going back in the house. We had use of a charcoal grill and a gas grill was available if you have your own tank. There is a little convenience store nearby and a short drive along the seawall brings you to larger stores. We hope to vacation here again. Cherished memories begin with choosing the perfect environment. We did just that. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home with us!

This was a wonderful home for our family! There was plenty of room for the 10 of us. We loved the big den for relaxing in the evening. The dining table was perfect for gathering around to play games. We enjoyed the spacious porch where we had dinner each night. The close accessibility to the beach was a definite plus. The house was clean, and everything worked. A good time was had by all!

Fabulous Easter Week-End

Our family gathered at Amber Sand for Easter Week-End. It was a large family gathering and our first time to do a rental thing. We had a great time! The beach was a short walk away plus the "in town" sights were a short drive away. The house was clean and ready for us when we arrived. Bonnie met us with the key and it was smooth sailing the whole time. The weather was wonderful and we so enjoyed sitting out on the porch and visiting. We chose to wash the linens before we left and left, we felt, the house in good order. We got our deposit back promptly,so Bonnie must have thought so, too. Would recommend a stay here any time. It was all a pleasant experience.

Our three families had a very relaxing weekend at the beach house. We had sixteen people in our group and had plenty of room for everyone without feeling crowded. The walk to the beach was only 2 minutes away and was at a location where there were no vehicles allowed so it was not crowded. However, if you wanted to take your vehicle , that drive was just 1 minute in the opposite direction. Our family would definitely rent this house again and recommend it to our friends. We did have one small cliche but the owner took care of it in a matter of minutes!

Walking distance to beach

We Really Enjoyed The 2 Days We Were There. The Beach Was In Walking Distance. We Forget Our Own Linens, So We Had To Use Theirs, Which Mean We Had To Get Up Early To Do Laundry On Sunday So I Could Get My Refundable Deposit. Which I Did Reicved.
