This was a home away from home. Washer and dryer, front and back deck, outdoor pool. We made friends with the neighbor and just had a ball. The beach is just across the dunes so you can run to the restroom or grab a bite to eat easily if you need to. The owners were very nice when we sent them a thank you. Great location on a two-lane street. Close to a convenience store and restaurant but in a nice residential street.

I work at an award winning hotel so I know how things should be and this place was SPOTLESS! Exactly as nice as the pictures! We enjoyed everything about this house, especially the big front porch, close beach access, and outdoor pool! Having a washer and dryer was very nice too! The kitchen has everything you need as well- even Tupperware to store your leftovers in! There are spouts in the garage to wash off after coming from the beach which was nice. The one thing I will mention is that the door from the master to the back porch is tough to close- don't know if that can be fixed or not. Also the paring knives were dull. We had such a blast and even met the neighbor and became close with him too!

Fins Up is the cutest beach house and it actually looks like it does in the pictures! Great view of the ocean sitting on the front porch and having a private pool was the best! Everything was very clean and the decor was great. Kitchen was stocked with good pots and pans, just bring all your tp, paper towels, detergents and so on. Can't wait to visit again!

The house and pool were just as advertized. We enjoyed the beach access and the sparkling pool. It was just right for the vacation we needed. Thanks!
