The home was a perfect quick get away. The pool was perfect for after beach entertainment. The room on the first floor did have a strong mildew smell. We ended up not using that room. However, overall the stay was nice and enjoyable!

Cabin was very nice and plenty of room. Pool was a great addition especially for little ones. We did not realize one of the bedrooms is downstairs--this was not described in the details. Not a big deal for us, but some might like to know this. Also, the bedroom with the bunks--there are no curtains or blinds on the windows so there is always light shining in during the day and at night because everyone has porch lights on. Other than that, we had a great stay and would book again!
