Interaction with guests
We are typically available upon arrival for any questions and a walk through, if requested. However, we use a keypad system so you can check in independently and get on with your vacation if you'd prefer! We live upstairs full time and can be easily reached via phone/text and you will probably see us coming and going or working around the yard. We are a quiet couple who love the simplicity of beach living and respect your comfort and privacy, but are also friendly and available to chat if you'd like to learn more about the area or just say hello!
Other things to note
*New home construction happening next door to us. Unfortunately, we do not know which days they will be working. So far the hours of construction have been approximately 8am to 4pm. Noise levels vary each day. We do have a fan and a noise machine available in the room.
*More than likely you will be able to check-in before 7pm upon request. We have this set just in case our schedules do not permit turnover. Please just reach out if you have any questions regarding special check in, etc.
