The house had a good layout with just about anything you could need
Only one dish drying cloth and no drying rack Couldn't figure out how to work cable TV in the den
You often get what you pay for but in this case Dune Nothin was still a bargain
Dune Nothin had lots of positives - one house from beach access close to Food Lion coffee shops and ice cream
well Furnishings were comfortable too A few CONs:
