You’ll enter Puffin Place through a covered front porch, with four chairs (2 rockers) and a small table for resting your beverage, where you can enjoy ever changing views of the tidal marsh. You will love the open floor plan with great flow through the kitchen, dining and living areas that lead into the inviting screened porch through sliding glass doors.

The living area opens onto the screened porch where the dinette set under the ceiling fan invites you to relax and enjoy the stunning view. The screened porch then opens onto a small open deck with a mesmerizing 180 degree view across gently waving sea oats on grass covered dunes to the sparkling ocean beyond. Stairs off of the deck take you down to the grassy common area.
Propane and charcoal grills are available for your use (propane is provided, charcoal and lighter fluid are not), and a large picnic table is tucked into the shade of the carport.
