FFR110 - Sand, Sun & Fun

The unit we stayed in was perfect for us! It was fresh, well-cleaned and had every kitchen item we needed and plenty of comfortable seating. Not to mention just an absolutely wonderful view of the ocean!

FFR209 - Beach Hideaway

Awesome condo with excellent ocean views. The hot tub was a perfect addition and we enjoyed countless hours in the hot tub watching the surf. It would have been nice to have had a TV viewing guide so we could easily find the channels without searching.

FFR315 - Seas The Day

The beach front balcony is just the best. We spend a lot of time there when not on the beach. We also appreciate GREATLY the ability to do a Sunday to Sunday rental as the traffic on Saturdays is so bad in the DC area. For us, Saturday morning on the beach when most guests have left is just wonderful. We practically have the beach to ourselves! Don't really have a least favorite comment. The fresh paint at FFR looks great btw.

FFR107- Tranquil Treasure

We love being right on the beach and being able to bring our fur babies. The layout and furnishing are calming and lend themselves to the most relaxing vacation. Best of all is the wide balcony that we used for every meal, for reading and for for just hanging out. I�m ready to book again for next year.

FFR205 - Beach Therapy

We loved the condo, property, and location. Can�t wait to come back next year

FFR208 - Sea Breeze

Sea Breeze is a great property, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is super clean, well-maintained and has a great view of the ocean. The couch and bed are comfortable, and the shower has great water pressure. The only thing needed is extra hangars,(there were only 5), and some big knives to cut a watermelon. It was hard with a small knife. The kitchen has plenty of Tupperware containers to pack snacks for the beach.

FFR309 - Beach Bliss

The property is very well kept. We were very pleased with the condition of the condo. This is one of our best rentals we have ever had. I was so pleased with it all.

FFR108 - Max's Sandcastle

We enjoy our time @ First Flight year after year-it never disappoints! We rent beach front, the views are amazing and we love the easy access to the beach. We have been in several different units and they are always clean and comfortable. The central location is easy travel to restaurants & shopping! Highly recommend and will continue to return yearly!!
