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.

Management response:

Thanks a million for the nice review. Come back soon!
