Completely renovated in 2014 with no expenses spared, maintaining the old world charm of the “beach cottage” style of days gone! Our “gem” is unlike any other on the beach! It features two distinct spaces, each sleeping 4, king size beds and 2 full size sofa beds, can be rented separately or as one space. The larger space is called Patty's Place.
