We chose this house for our family vacation. We had 7 adults and 5 children ages 9 months to 8 years old. The location was wonderful we could go across the street to the gulf side for bigger waves but the kids really enjoyed just playing in the water on the Mississippi Sound which was easily accessible from our back deck. They spent a lot of time catching hermit crabs which they truly enjoyed. We took one day and went to Gulf Shores via the Ferry stopped at Lulu's which had a lot for the kids to do plus they loved the ferry ride across the bay. We also took a day and went to Louisiana for a gator tour and then to New Orleans for dinner. The rest of the time was spent on the Island playing in the sand. We did visit Fort Gaines and the aquarium on the island which were both very enjoyable. We were able to build a bonfire on the beach and make smores. It was a wonderful vacation. I would highly recommend this house. It is furnished beautifully and has everything you need. Lots of beach toys, high chair, pack n play, games plenty of things to do. Thank you Carol we had a wonderful time!!!!!
