Grill: There is a propane grill with propane provided. Grocery Store: 10 minutes in Garden—great meat market there! Handicap Friendly: YES! Let us explain what we mean by handicap friendly…there is a zero-1 step entry into this home, and it is one level (a ranch-style home). The bathroom is not up to official handicap standards and do not come equipped with special apparatus to help those in need. There is no hallway—it is an open floor plan. Wheelchair should have no issues getting around the home. Hunters: There are posts to hang your kill. Bird hunting in the fall is also very good. Internet: Yes, there is internet, but it is not always strong. Linens: Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival.

Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we'll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.

Sometimes when renting a home, you are never too sure about the terrain: is the home on top of a hill, is parking on a steep slope, are there 100 steps to the beach or the unit, etc. This home gets the FVR approval for the young at heart!
