Salty Pause. When life gets hectic, it’s time to take that Salty Pause. We’re dog friendly so bring your beach-loving pooch & his Salty Paws too.

As you choose one of 3 Entrances into your Salty Pause, you notice that there are 2 Screened Porches & 2 Outdoor Decks (1 Covered/1 Open). From the Upper Screened Porch enjoy the Ocean View. The lower Screened Porch has a Table for Alfresco Dining or Playing games. Inside you find an Open Concept Living Area/Kitchen. With lots of Comfortable Seating in the Living Area you can Watch your favorite shows on Cable or Stream that Movie you’ve been wanting to see. If you are a Harry Potter fan (or never had the chance to see them), you will find the complete set of DVDs. There are some additional Movies including some younger Kid Oriented. There is a Wide Assortment of Puzzles & Games with a Large Coffee Table to play them on.

Too many cooks will spoil the pot is not applicable here. This Large Kitchen will allow all the Family Chefs to work together to make Memorable Meals. Cook on the Charcoal Grill & challenge your opponent to a game of Darts downstairs. Be sure to turn on the Light on the Scoreboard for an enhanced experience. The Bar in the Kitchen seats 4, the Dining area seats 6 & the table on the Screened Porch seats 4. There is a Highchair to sit the Little One. Make a pot of Drip Coffee & drink a cup sitting on the Front Deck to see why Southerners love their Front Porches with Rockers.

3 Bedrooms & a Loft sleep 11. On the Lower-Level Bedroom #1 has a Queen, Dresser/Closet & USB ports to charge your devices in the evenings. The 2nd Bedroom has 2 Full Beds, Dresser/Closet & USB Ports. As you ascend the stairs you find a little Reading Nook. In the Loft, there are 3 Twins in a Bunk style. Access to the Upper Front Deck from the Loft. Bedroom #3 is the Primary & has a King, USB Ports, Dresser & an Extra-Large Walk-In Closet. With Private Access to the Upper Back Screen Porch, you can sit in the Comfortable Seating & Enjoy an Ocean View. Between the Upper & Lower Sleeping Areas are Jack & Jill Baths with Rain Shower Heads in Tub/Shower combinations.

This cottage has Beach Chairs/Umbrella to take with you on the Short 3 Block Walk to the Sandy Ocean’s Edge. There are Bikes & Golf Carts available to rent on the Island if you want to go exploring. When you return, rinse off the Sand/Salt in the Outdoor Shower. Then toss all those Swimsuits & Towels into the Full-Sized Washer/Dryer to be ready for the next day’s fun. There is a nice Shady Natural Backyard (Fenced-In June 2023) & even a Bag Dispenser & Scooper to conclude your pup’s “business meeting”.

As you leave, you realize that you & your Salty Paws friend, both enjoyed your Salty Pause & will want to rebook for your Next Getaway.

4/5 stars
We enjoyed the beach house. Loved the open space. The gift bag was a nice touch. We do have a few suggestions for the benefit of your future tenants. We understand their is a new owner and thought this would be helpful. 1. Need new frying pans, all were deteriorated. 2. Window blinds were inoperable in most room (could not open and close). 3. Blinds need to be put on the window and door in the area where the bunk beds are. 4. Toilet seats in bedroom baths need to be replaced. 5. The A/C unit capacity was limited. We set at 69 but it never went below 73. 6. The water hose downstairs needs to be replaced. Overall, it was a very nice place and we enjoyed our stay.
