Renters who exceed Maximum Occupancy will be charged a $200 fine per additional person to the credit card on file, along with immediate termination of the rental.  


Early check-in and late check-out is not available during busy season (May through August) as our homes book reservations back to back and we want to allow the cleaning company ample time to make the home perfect for our guests. Early check-in and late check-out is based on availability during the off-season. Please inquire a day in advance. May be subject to an additional fee.

OCCUPANCY: Max guests for rates listed is 6 in beds. Exceptions can be made for the pullout couches for up to 4 additional guests (max of 10) and must be approved with owner. $25 per additional guest per night. No exceptions.

We came down to celebrate my daughters 16th birthday and the house was perfect! We enjoyed being so close to the beach! It was great to watch the sunrise in the morning from the porch while enjoying my coffee. We also enjoy relaxing at night with the cool breeze while looking up at the stars over the water. Great Trip, we would definitely like to come back here

This is my 2nd stay in Faith's beautiful cottage and I highly recommend it. We had a minor issue with the cottage upon arrival and Faith had a team of professionals in action to resolve it immediately. The location is perfect. The cottage is beautiful, with modern furnishings and technology, and very clean. Lots of extras are provided to make your stay super comfortable. We will definitely be back.

The overall experience was great. The host made me feel extremely welcome & was very accommodating. All of my questions/concerns were addressed-within minutes, even late at night. The house was very clean & well kept-exactly as pictured. It is obvious the owner has put a lot into the maintenance of the home. One interesting/unexpected aspect involved the other beach goers. We saw a lot of confederate flags/skull & cross bones/Trump supporters. I have absolutely no issues with self expression/freedom of speech. It was just unexpected. I never once felt my personal safety was at risk or that my rights were infringed upon, it was simply something I had not been exposed to for some time. Given the climate of the times, it definitely made the experience a little less relaxing. Just something I think those considering visiting this area in the future should consider.

Beautiful house - very clean, spacious, and a short walk to the beach. Porch had a beautiful view, could have spent the weekend on the porch alone! There is also a gate on the porch before the stairs that is nice to have if you bring pets or kids. Plenty of parking (3 cars can fit at 1 cottage) and road side parking next to the property. Recommend to bring your own shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Also, there is an additional charge of $135 to wash the linens. (This is optional, you can also choose to wash and dry everything yourself. We chose to do this which put extra stress on our trip. Would recommend to pay the fee.) Even with the cost, overall price is great if you have a group of 6 or more. Faith is very responsive and helpful. Would recommend this place and would stay there again.
