If this is the "Ruff Life" then who needs the Good Life? When you take your family, including your four-legged friend, on a much needed vacation to the beach, you'll find everything you need in this joyful 4 BR gem with ocean views. This home features an open floor plan, two queen bedrooms and two twin bed pass through areas for additional guests.

Enjoy dinner, drinks and the beautiful blue Atlantic view seated at the high top table in the front enclosed sunroom, or relax with the cook around the butcher block kitchen island. The open floor plan makes socializing a breeze in this 1 story bright, retro styled classic beach cottage whimsically decorated with lively paintings of furry and feathered friends and pops of color.

Your  beach access is located directly across the street! Since this house is located on a corner lot, not only will you have loads of parking, you'll have extra space for Fido to play fetch. When you've had enough sun and sand, come on back and enjoy a hot outdoor shower and hose off your pooch and all those toys.  

Sweet Dreams:
Two queen size rooms are located at the back of the home for peaceful slumber. Each room includes an additional pass thru space with a twin bed tucked inside for additional guests - what an innovative use of space! The shared bathroom may just be one of the cutest ones you'll see on the island - with rolling barn doors and sea glass colored tile.
