House is well maintained, waliking distance to fishing pier.Short drive ( maybe 3-4 blocks) to gulf side beach not inhabited much on weekends and hardly at all during the week. would stay again next time. very enjoyable vacation. Screened in porch was a plus,could hear the waves in the distance at night. Barbra was a breeze/pleasure to deal with.

My wife and I chose this place to get away from the big city for a weekend and just unwind. Overall, this place provided that accommodation perfectly. The main reason we selected this place though, was the ability to accommodate our two dogs without any issue whatsoever. Very pet friendly.

“The Hunky Dory was awesome”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the hunky dory. The screened in porch was my favorite part. We could sit around the big table and visit. Next time we will rent the golf cart. But the fishing pier was within walking distance as well as the beach. the house was very comfortable and the only thing we could not find was spatula to turn the burgers we cooked on the grill. Barbara was very easy to work with and answered all my questions promptly. The location was away from the hustle and bustle of the town but close enough you could be there in a matter of minutes..Thank you for letting us stay in your home..Cathy

“Hunky Dory was peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed August 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

The house was clean and comfortable. We were close to the beach but still private enough that I could have peaceful morning coffee on the deck. We used both the screened in porch and the upper deck and listened to the ocean and the birds. All in all, a great way to unwind and enjoy the last bit of summer

“Hunky Dory is very nice”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Hunky Dory is a very nice little peaceful place off the beaten path. The house was nice and very clean and to be honest I feel some of the other reviews were just mean and not accurate at all. We never saw a single bug and the place was well maintained and cared for and Barbara was a gem to deal with. There is fishing a short walk away and the beach is just a couple of blocks away. It was exactly what we were looking for to go and relax away from the main stream beach hassle. There is a convenient store just around the corner also. I would highly recommend Hunky Dory.
