Amenities & Room:
The bathroom was so small
The electricity in the bed room with the bunkbeds did not seem to be operating
The other major issue is the refrigerator
and the view was spectacular
It was a little annoying that all the windows could not be opened because they were nailed shut
our stay was after Labor day so can't imagine the traffic jam during high season- clean

Water comes within 6 feet or so of the blue picnic table very neat at night with full moon
VACASA made everything so simple Maintenance was easily reachable and super friendly when light bulbs blew
The 5 of us girls had a wonderful weekend together
very small Main bedroom slept well
but for us the house a bit too small for the 5 of us adults
The level of the tide in the marsh during storm surge was a bit disconcerting but still cool to watch Study your tide charts
The beach is easily accessed Handy to restaurants
The location was great 5 minute walk to the beach
fair conditions need to update mattresses steps too steep on entering and exiting building
Right on Wildlife estuary High tide comes right up to within a few feet of the house
It was in the perfect location to sit and watch the birds on the marshland or walk to the beach - 200 steps
