The 46th parallel is located on the best street and in the best neighborhood in Ocean Park. If you don't believe us just ask our few but fantastic neighbors. Please help us maintain that relationship by respecting the neighborhood.
To keep guest cost down we ask you to strip the sheets off the beds and run them in the washer first. The super-guest gold star challenge is to then start the bath and kitchen towels in the washer before checkout. Our neighborhood host will do the rest.
One clean and well behaved medium sized dog under 50lbs is welcome to accompany your group with a $35 fee. Please don't leave them alone inside or outside the cottage. They want to go to the beach too! Please keep fido off the furniture. There is a really posh dog bed provided...that is the only one dogs are allowed in. Dog towels are out on the patio in a green bucket.
Sand will murder our washer and dryer. Please do not contribute to senseless washer abuse by washing sandy items or beach towels. We only provide bath towels, you will have to bring your own beach towels.
