This was our first time renting a house at the beach. We have always stayed at hotels. This was the best vacation our family has ever had. We rented through Spectrum Properties. They were very helpful. The house was great. The A/C was cold. Everything that we needed was there. We were able to cook breakfast every morning. There is a gas grill on the porch where we cooked two meals. We were also able to do all of our laundry. The couch converted to a full sized bed, so the boys slept in front of the TV. The beach was a very short walk. The ocean is in view from the back deck. The neighborhood was very quiet. The only problem we encountered was the DVD and VCR players were not working. The steps are also kind of steep if you have problems with stairs, but most beach homes seem to have similar steps. I hope to stay here again next year.
