Parents will love this spacious living areas inside (the living room features 2 separate seating areas that are bright and airy thanks to the wall of windows, but fitted with shades to enjoy a movie night on the plush couches) as well as the multiple balconies on each level of the house - perfect for your morning coffee. Relax with an outdoor picnic or BBQ cooked on the grill, or whip up a family meal in the gourmet kitchen, which has large granite countertops for plenty of counter space, and there are even 2 dishwashers to help with cleaning up.

The residence has plenty of toys for children under 10 and is a great family space with a living room large enough for wheeled toys.

Children aged 6 and up will enjoy the loft sharing room that is equipped with our growing collection of fun games, a foosball table and arcade game. For days at the beach, guests can borrow the handy trailer, beach gear or bodyboards. Ask the hosts if you need to rent additional baby essentials, such as a crib, pack-n-play and more.

Style Notes

Supersized beach hut. Bright, light, modern and sophisticated, this home blends classic coastal influences with more elegant styling, to create a luxurious take on the traditional beach hut hangout. Breezy beachy artwork references the island-style surroundings, while neutral colors with accents of blue complement the sea-side location. We love the rustic textures and natural wooden materials used throughout, as well as the cute blue painted porch with cozy egg-shaped outdoor sofas and the super large breakfast bar.
