☆☆ GETTING TO THE HOUSE ☆☆
To ensure a smooth arrival, an all-wheel or four-wheel drive vehicle with at least 7.5 inches of ground clearance is required!! A tow from the sand is $400 and a lot of precious vacation time, so trust us and don’t try the drive in a 2WD vehicle!
Generally guests do one of 3 things to reach the house:
1: Drive a personnel or rental 4x4 vehicle. (We’re happy to recommend local rentals that allow beach driving. It’s recommended to stop at our satellite parking to reduce tire pressure approximately 10-15 pounds, before driving on to the sand. Usually, it is an easier drive during low tide, and when it is not extremely hot.
2: Guests without a 4x4 are able to park overnight at our satellite parking (1142 Ocean Trail Rd.) and then can be picked up by other members of their group that do have 4x4s.
3. Guests take advantage of the third-party shuttle service that costs roughly $250 - $300 for one side of the journey, and can accommodate up to twelve people at once!
