This is a tiny house (490 square feet) with living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and one bathroom. We have a driveway for one compact car. We provide two on-street parking permits.
A full-size washer and dryer can be found on the ground floor with access near the foot of the back stairs. A key to access the laundry room can be found by the rear door. In the laundry room you'll also find beach toys, a beach cart and a Weber charcoal grill. Please lock-up after use.
The front door has a coded lock for self check-in. A temporary code will be provided before your arrival. I'm available anytime by text or phone.
The Blue Crab is ideal for solo adventurers, couples and small families.
