"Everything was great"

by Mari B.


Everything was Great. Easy walk to the beach. Great yard for the kids to play in. Very nice house with lots of natural light and many places to sit. We have no complaints about this rental. Whenever I had a question, the person I emailed was quick to answer. We would LOVE to stay here again in the future.

"Wonderful getaway spot"

by Andrea B.


We loved the large yard and fire pit. The house was great for our needs. The walk to the beach is short (we were worried it would be longer than advertised, but it was great!). The house was well stocked for our needs other than the hand soaps were pretty much empty, which in the time of Covid-19 seems key. But the location, the home, and the overall experience was excellent!

"Wonderful home, yard, location!"

by Mike G.


Great house and outdoor space for us and our 2 adult kids. Relaxing screen porch, front deck and yard with lots to do. Fire pit, hammocks, beach sunsets. Loved it all.

"Great quirky little house"

by Kelly P.


Fantastic screened in porch and yard. Spacious and great location. Just wish it had been more thoroughly cleaned. We will come back!

"Nice get away"

by Chad D.


Really enjoyed property. Huge yard for games and screened porch was perfect place to sit at night

"Perfect location and super clean"

by Christi H.


Meant to Beach was a great 4-day weekend rental! We loved it. It fit our family of 4 plus my in-laws (3 more adults) perfectly. The house was a short walk to the beach and tucked away off the main road. It was clean and ready for us when we arrived. The kitchen was well stocked.

Great yard, close to the beach and wonderful screened in porch!

"Great place - we loved it!"

by Jill C.


We stayed at Meant to Beach with our family of 4 and had a wonderful time! The pictures do a nice job of representing how cute and spacious the house is. It is a perfect vacation getaway and just a quick walk to the beach. The beach itself was great and it seemed like we had to place to ourselves most of the time. The house had spacious bedrooms, a nice kitchen and eating area, great porches, both screened in (two) and outside and a large yard. The house was a two minute drive to a local corner store and a bakery. The house was also adorably decorated and put us right in the beach mode and ready to relax and enjoy our time - which we thoroughly did! We would definitely stay at Meant to Beach again! If I could offer one suggestion, I would say to add blinds to the glass portion of the front door and the small windows in two of the bedrooms.
