“silver not gold”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Been coming to EI for past 21 yrs and stayed everywhere from condo to platinum rated homes, This is definitely not a gold . Hot tub does not work, porch furniture though plentiful is worn and rusted. Ice dispenser in frig does not work and elevator while we were there did not work. Kitchen is small especially for large family. Location is great and ocean views are excellent.
House is clean.

“Fantastic beachfront home!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have rented many, many beach homes over the years, this one is in the top few favorites. Right on the beach, which is not always the case even with beachfront homes as most build well behind the dunes. Outdoor areas are awesome, multiple levels, well maintained, two pools and a hot tub. Furniture outdoors and indoors well maintained, not showing all the wear and tear of most rentals.

Beautiful elevator making the home fully accessible, amazing views, home and kitchen well furnished with many tv's, game rooms, separate living and dining areas to accommodate large families, etc.. Comfortable, well maintained and clean - the big key so a great vacation rental.

The beach is wonderful, wide, soft sand, gentle waves, safe and family and dog friendly. Location is good as we could go either direction and find great restaurants 5 - 25 minutes away.
