Leave our beach chairs, umbrellas, 'toys', etc. tucked away in our private dunes during your stay and come & go to the ocean directly across from the house (no scheduling, driving, hauling!).

“Terrific Large Property!”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2016

This is a terrific house for a large diverse group (we had 18 people at one time) and three generations. We had plenty of room for all of us, and everyone was comfortable - from grandpa to the 9 month old grand baby. The kids loved the yard, the beach and the warm days with brisk nights by the firepit. A wonderful family vacation for all of us!
