This beautiful beach house is exactly as described. All of the pictures are accurate. The only way this house could have been better, is if it were right on a dune!

Either the previous tenants had OCD and kept it very clean, or the cleaning staff did a really nice job prepping the house. We arrived around 5 on Saturday and aside from Bluebeard Road not being marked on the main road, we were able to locate it easily. This house is beautifully maintained. The details make it feel like home. The first floor boasts a pool table, full size refrigerator, half bath, flat screen and laundry. It was a great place to gather and throw the kids toys for them to play. Very tastefully furnished. Second floor has 4 immaculate bedrooms, all with deck access. I can honestly say that I haven't been in a beach house this clean and well furnished. Bathrooms were very clean, modern, and beautifully decorated. The furniture is absolutely gorgeous. The third floor has a large dining table, a beautiful, modern kitchen and all the amenities of home. There weren't any window coverings, but the view was stunning! You can see the sound side and ocean side. The king suite has a double sink, which I thought was an extra detail that set it apart. The furniture was in great shape, no noticeable stains or markings. The large area rugs were immaculate. There was a vacuum on every floor, and they actually worked which was a nice change from other houses we've rented. The pool is large, clean and easily accessible for young children via the steps. Hot tub was clean and like new. We even saw some friendly frogs! When we couldn't access the pool lights, we placed a call into maintenance. They were there within a few hours to flip the breaker. I was impressed that they responded so quickly! Carpet, woodwork and decor were clean and like new. There were just so many small, convenient details that set this house apart. The only downside is that the location does require a little more work to get to the beach, but in my opinion, that's a fair trade! With small children, we spend a lot of time close to the pool. There was a convenient public beach access path just down the road. We walked it many times, and it really wasn't too bad, just required some careful preplanning. You could still sit on the deck and hear the waves in the evening. We had a fabulous family vacation and I would definitely stay there again!
