Owner's Response: We are thrilled this family thought the home was an awesome rental and that the location and space were to their liking. We have chosen to keep the areas of the backyard which border the sand dunes in a more natural state. We love the feeling of being right on the beach and the natural dunes and vegetation are appealing to us and we hope others agree. The back patio area and private dune walkover are well maintained for outdoor relaxation and easy, private access to the beach.

We have just returned from an amazing week at your beautiful home. The house was even more gorgeous than the pictures showed! We had 14 women sharing this home and it was more than large enough that everyone had plenty of space to themselves. The decor was amazing and being able to walk right out to the beach was an added bonus. Loved the oversized kitchen where we could all sit together to enjoy a meal. Would definately stay here again. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful home with us!!

We rented this house for my beach wedding! The house is amazing we loved having so much space. There were so many people in the house & yet we all had our own private area. Amazing views, very close to the beach & great community pool just down the street. Great family reunion house.
