Fun at the beach for a family (or two!)

 Beautiful, spacious, well equipped, comfortable property in a great location. Excellent for our extended family for a weekend away. We all especially loved the spa pool - an extra treat in an already superb house. Hope to return in the future. 

Omaha Sands- Just the tonic you need!

 Lovely, spacious and tidy house. Had everything we needed! Beautiful view and surroundings. Very close to beach. Would certainly return! 

Omaha Magic- a beach house for all the family

 Comfortable house with great indoor/outdoor flow and lets not forget the viewing platform - heaven! Nice and close to beach and shops. Will definitely book again. 

*Omaha Stunning Beach House*

 Love the house and this is our second stay and won't be our last. Great for family, girls weekend and this last time it was our son's wedding. Awesome home well worth every penny 

Lovely sunny open plan beach house

 Fantastic location near gorgeous Omaha beach. High-quality, spacious, open-plan house. Well-eqipped kitchen. A few small glitches but those will probably be repaired soon. The garage has recently been renovated into a nice, large bedroom with ensuite-- perfect for teens or another family. Would recommend this house! 

Omaha Central, it doesn't get better than this!

 Good location, very handy to the Café, shop and beach. Great layout and very spacious, more than big enough for two families. Very comfy beds, and nice furniture. Was immaculately clean. In the spirit of giving feedback for things you could improve, we could have done with a couple more bedroom lamps (one in each room would have been good) and a decent frying pan but overall a great house! Would stay again. Thanks.
