This home is very spacious and clean and exceeded our expectations. Finishings are very nice. Beach access was amazing. The location was perfect... no crowds. A true getaway property. Description is accurate. Kitchen was well equipped. There were an excess of bath towels of various sizes. We never had to dip into our personal stash of toilet paper, hand and dish soap, or kitchen trash bags. As for the front door lock that everyone complains about, it is not broken or stuck. We fell victim to the door lock also, until our son pointed out the label clearly adhered on the inside of the door with instructions. The only thing I would recommend is to bring your own bath soap. They do provide a prepackaged bar for each bathroom, but it's quite thin for a long stay. Check in was easy and the staff was great. The check out process is very simple. I've stayed at many places where you have a list of things to do before you leave. Their checkout process only had a couple of minor requests. Made for such an easy and relaxing morning the day we left. We loved this beachhouse so much and are already planning our next stay for 2024.

Nice house with beautiful view of the beach and great access to the beach as well but if you're coming with a large group be sure to bring extra toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags. We ran out 2nd day of our trip. Also be sure to bring laundry detergent because you will need to wash and dry towels at least once while staying. There are not enough towels for a large group.

Bring extra towels and washcloths. Bring extra toilet paper and paper towels and trash bags. We loved our time there! It is a public beach so get your vehicle or chairs out early to save your spot in front of the beach house. Kitchen is very well stocked. Ice cream man drives by twice a day! We didn’t need any maintenance. Front door and back door are tricky so get instructions on how to open.
