The "Peach House" on IOPA friend of mine owns a house at the beach that she rents out.
She recently had it repainted so she asked me to come and take some updated pictures.
Renters were confused when the house color didn't match what they had selected in the ad.
She is a "hands-on" type landlord and responds quickly to feedback from her paying guests.
"I advertise as the owner - I don't use a rental agency - so I can charge less for a real bargain seaside," she explained.
She and a few other nearby owners cooperated and built a swimming pool exclusively for their guests.
"That has been very popular, especially for families with young children" she smiled.
The Guest Book in the living room shows visitors really appreciate her pet friendly approach.
The spacious 4-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom floor plan means more "humans" can split the cost and bring along Fido for a true family getaway.
Combined with convertible sofas, the place can accommodate 10-12 people.
It comes with a wealth of amenities so vacationers can really relax and either cook there or pop out to nearby dining spots.
There is parking for 6 vehicles, so there's no shortage of parking.
The lower space is shaded with tables, chairs and several rope hammocks were just hanging around.
The beach is a short stroll away and wasn't very crowded the afternoon I walked around, looking for angles to display the house and its surroundings.
Offshore, a Para-Sail was quietly soaring and floating in the bright blue sky.
A nice day at the beach.

As Summer comes to an official close, check out prices for beach rentals.
We live in an area where the outdoor season lingers even as the humidity sinks.
And for that, we thank you.
