Great place to stay. We enjoyed our four night stay over the Georgia/Florida football game weekend. The home was spacious with three large bedrooms and an open kitchen-family room design. The place was spotlessly clean with amenities provided. The fenced in yard and deck were a bonus with our dog making it easy to allow her to run free.

Wonderful cottage on the beach The home is right on the beach and the ocean views from inside the family room and master bedroom are stunning. And the full length synthetic plank deck offers the feeling of being on the beach. The home is well supplied with most household products needed for the stay. A great place to stay. Plenty of space for 5 adults.
