We enjoyed our stay at Take a Chance. It was pet friendly so we were able to take our dog with us and the deck had a gate so she could be outside with us without being on a leash. The property was clean and well maintained. There was easy access to the gorgeous beach, which we were able to walk along every day. - (Jan 2023 - VRBO)
