Rental Locations Explained


No units between the Oceanfront unit and the beach. The distance to the water may vary, but there are no units between you and the ocean. With very few exceptions, most Oceanfront units have a good view of the Ocean with an easy walk to the water. View our oceanfront vacation home rentals.


Units are located between the Ocean and Beach Road. While a few of these have an unobstructed ocean access, all are near and easily accessible to the ocean without crossing any major streets. Most of these have some ocean view. Most houses on the Oceanside have a very short walk to the beach. View our oceanside vacation home rentals.
