The house is direct oceanfront & is spacious, very clean & well maintained. It definitely feels like a home, not a vacation rental. The ocean can be seen & heard from every room...very peaceful sleeping! It was wonderful to sit on the deck w/our morning coffee & see dolphins. The kitchen is very well equipped with anything you could possibly need. It has a great gas grill too! The elevator was a Godsend to us between bad knees & a leg amputee in our family. There is a hot tub but we did not use it but it looks very nice. The grocery stores aren't too far away. You can choose from Food Lion, Publix (brand new!) & just a teenie but further is Harris Teeter. Staying here was very relaxing & a perfect place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our kids & grandkids. We will be back!
