This is a cute cottage and super nice location, however the whole place is in need of TLC and cleaning. There was dirty sticky silverware in the drawer, we had to move the microwave to get it to work and popcorn and seeds on the carpet. The counters and Formica is old and missing in places. While there is a small BBQ on the back deck it is non useable unless you want your food covered in rust. All the deck furniture is unusable. Either it is covered in moss or rust (hard to get out of clothes) in fact one chair is rusted through. Everything seems to work however for the price of $465 for a 2 night stay which included a substantial cleaning deposit we expected cleanliness and deck furniture we could use.
It was surprising difficult to find a pet-free beach house close to the amenities of Florence for a few days family holiday at the end of July. We like pets but several people in our family have pet allergies. Fortunately we stumbled upon this lovely home before we gave up our search.
The home was clean and comfy. Website pics and info should be updated to reflect that the wood stove has been replaced with an electric fireplace and the couches have been upgraded. The changes haven't diminished the charm and the views from the living room and front deck are amazing.
The property managers were friendly and helpful. Good info was provided ahead of time regarding check in procedures and house rules.
The closest beach access is a few minutes down a quaint but tricky path. Easier access is a quick 5 minute walk away, beside the resort.
Florence is a few minutes drive away. There are enough activities with shops, the State Park, and sand dune related activities to keep a family busy for at least a few days and several other towns and attractions worth visiting in either direction that are an easy drive away. Our focus for this trip was relaxation and we were able to achieve it in this beach house.
