Downstairs there is a large built in picnic table perfect for getting out of the sun or enjoying the large grill for hamburgers, steaks or or the catch of the day! We try to keep charcoal and lighter fluid stocked for you, if you have any left over feel free to leave for next renters.

Check-in is at 4:00 p.m.

Check out is at 11:00 a.m.

We do not allow events. The house is not set up for over maximum occupancy of 11.

Any gathering such as a day party, BBQ, Prom party, Wedding or Reunions that exceeds the maximum occupancy for the home (11) is considered an event.

The house uses a septic system and has a maximum occupancy and therefore when exceeded, additional restrooms are required. If you violate this policy, you will loose your entire deposit and be required to pay for any damages to the septic system.

Youth: Reservations require one chaperone for every four minors (anyone that does not meet our minimum renting age of 25). Each chaperone is required to provide a copy their drivers license, be at least 25 years of age. All chaperones must be onsite with the minors at all times. If this policy is violated, the rental agreement is immediately terminated and you will be asked to leave the premises. There will be no refunds and each chaperone will subsequently be fined.

Please remember that parking is limited to six vehicles, which reduces the entertainment space underneath the house. Street parking is monitored, as well as limited, so in consideration of our neighbors.

Renting age: Minimum of 25.


We do not offer travelers insurance. You may choose to purchase travel insurance separately in case of unforeseen circumstances, and we highly recommend it. Example Access America - (URL-HIDDEN)

Storm: Refunds will be given if the state or local authorities order a mandatory evacuation in a "Tropical Storm/Hurricane Warning" and/or a mandatory evacuation order has been given for the "Tropical Storm/Hurricane Warning" area of residence of a vacationing guest. The day that the authorities order an evacuation order in a "TropicalStorm/Hurricane Warning" Area, we will refund any unused portion of rent from a guest currently registered. Any unused portion rent from a guest that is scheduled to arrive, and wants to shorten their stay, to come in after the "Tropical Storm/Hurricane Warning" is lifted. Any advance rent collected or deposits for a reservation that is scheduled to arrive during the "Tropical Storm/Hurricane Warning" period.

We will strive to work with guest to your satisfaction.

We would love to host you during the Christmas and New Year Holidays. However due to schedules of cleaning services being closed for holiday purposes the home can only be booked for the week of each holiday. Contact me if you are interested in booking.

We built the Sea Glass Shack seven years ago. With both of my children grown I wanted to move to the beach, so have decided to make this my new job. I plan in the future to build more beach homes for rental properties. I love the beach and want my guest to have the best possible experience.
