About this listing
Our sweet beach cottage is a comfortable home away from home and is just 2 blocks from the wide open beaches. Enjoy a peaceful get away with your dog and join our "dog wall of fame".
Waggin tails and beach fun. We are dog people and cater to responsible dog owners with well behaved dogs. We have tried to keep life simpler than at home in hopes to enjoy nature more, build relationships and have fun with each other. You can expect a clean 3 bedroom (2 bedrooms with doors and queen beds, 1 loft bedroom that is open with full bed and twins), 2 bath home with a fully equipped kitchen and dishes for up to 10 guests. Seating for 6 to 7 at the table and 2 at the breakfast counter. The Cottage is decorated in a simple but friendly Seashell Theme. It is light and airy and faces a cluster of trees for that "away feeling".
This is a perfect haven for bonding with friends and family members - setting new traditions and creating memories to last a life time.
