Great place!

We had some problems with pushing our reservation to the 25th instead of the 17th. We called and got this wonderful house at last minute and we rented two of the units. It is right in the middle of all the action!

My wife and I booked the Sunrise and it was everything we needed. Rick and Kay are very friendly and met us there with a smile. Location was great and our trip was perfect . We will definitely be visiting again.

Thanks The Lowreys

I booked the Sunrise after a surprise wedding was planned for my sister (I wasn't part of the planning) on extremely short notice. I LOVED the location of this house. I had to make this trip alone with my kids and I felt very safe walking to ALL the amenities the location had to offer. The size of the apt was just what we needed. Gave us enough separation but not so much that I was constantly worried about not being able to see them. For the price point, defiantly worth the money. I will be staying here again in the future.

We rented this home for a quick weekend getaway and fishing trip. We really enjoyed all the amenities the home offered and the quaintness of it all. There was even coffee in the fridge! The only suggestion I would make is perhaps some darker curtains and some door/curtain/etc. from the front room to the bedroom so there is the semblance of privacy. Overall, we enjoyed the home.

Clean, clean, clean. Best deal on the seawall, and a short, short walk to the pleasure pier and beach. Full kitchen and cold air conditioning. We look forward to returning again.
