Promises of Peace

Review submitted: August 25, 2013   Date of arrival: August 19, 2013

Out of the Blue is a charming upside down cottage that sits quietly back from Ocean Avenue with it’s own private driveway/parking. The house is light and airy providing a peaceful, relaxing environment. We especially enjoyed the cool fresh breeze coming across the upper deck and windows, making it very comfortable whether we spent time inside or out. We appreciated the nearby culinary delights, the morning walks along the beach and the cultural offerings of the area. The location of the house was perfect for our needs. Diane and Chuck were great to work with. They provided us with peace of mind by making their home available to us just as they promised. This was our first VRBO experience and it was a positive one. We look forward to returning to Out of the Blue.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
