Just spent at week at Tucked Away and it was perfect. Just a block from the beach and yet "tucked away" from the road. Had everything we needed and would definitely rent again!

About the neighbourhood
Close proximity to the ocean is only one of many reasons this property was chosen for location of our family beach house. This very spacious property was a wonderful choice for family gatherings and activities. During a time when most beach homes depended on the coastal breeze to cool their homes, this property includes several grand old oak trees which graciously caressed our home and kept it cooler than most oceanfront dwellings. The large yard allows 25' boat/trailers with enough room left over for several cars. Golf cart rental store at other end of the street.
