We had an awesome time at the beach house! No need to bring anything cause this lovely house is fully stocked with all the essentials and plenty of fun things to do. We felt like we were right at home and the owners were so welcoming and gracious. We would go back anytime!

We had a great time at Gary's beach house
Even it was it was cold, cloudy and rainy,we enjoyed our stay from the minute we arrived!
The house was more than we ever expected, clean, well equipped, it even had bikes to ride, gas grill, beach toys a full kitchen to cook your own meals .
But the best was the nicest vew to the beach from the two balconies located on 2nd and 3rd level of the house with plenty chairs and beach furniture!!!
It was just awesome!
BUT WHAT WE APRECIATE THE MOST IS THE ATTENTION FROM THE OWNER MR. GARY JOHNSON, MAKING SURE WE WERE OK WHEN WE ARRIVED ASKING IF WE NEEDED ANYTHING TO MAKE OUR STAY BETTER
IT WAS JUST A GREAT STAY EVER...
THANK YOU GARY!

“Sea Side Relaxing”

When we arrived to the Seaside home the feeling was so nice. You can smell the salt in the air and hear the waves as if you were on the beach. We couldnt believe how close to the water we were.
Gary was supper nice and answered all questions I had via e-mail very quickly.
I only wish we knew of the very narrow spiral staircase prior to the visit. We had two in the group with bad knees and no way they could make it up those stairs.

Clear detailed instruction on keys, where things are, setup for computer, DVD etc. The elevator was so convenient for getting all of our things to the main floor. Wow the outside deck is setup for comfort and fun with such a great view.Inside it is decorated to the max in the beach theme. Delightful pictures, accessories throughout the whole home. Smelled great and thoroughly clean. The view of the beach, the water, stunning sunrises. A short walk and down to the sun, water and sand. Each bedroom is decorated to be special. Gorgeous view of the water from the front porch where you can relax in loungers with cushions, table with seating for dining outside. Toys, grills, bikes so many extra things. Dishes, glasses silverware, shampoo, detergents, sheets, blankets, loads of extras. Awesome location and a cozy beach home. We loved it!

“Comfortable house, very clean and well equiped close to beach with great views”

Comfortable house, nice and clean; lots of space for 6 adults two babies and two dogs. The deck is huge with lots of comfortable furniture and a nice hammock; perfect for spending time outdoors enjoying the wonderful scenery the house has to offer! The dogs were very safe staying on the deck most on the time, as there is a locking gate at the top of the stairs. All of the provided amenities made our stay that much more enjoyable; boards to play in the water with, bikes to ride around on, and a BBQ pit to cook on! The only "con" I can think of would HAVE to be the mosquitoes! Not that they are something the owners can control, of course...so bring some spray with you (although that was also provided) and be prepared to use it. Other than those pesky blood suckers our stay was above our greatest expectations and we would be thrilled to stay here again in the future! So bring your family, your board games, and your willingness for some R&R...you won't be disappointed!
