What a special treat to be able to stay at this house! It is beautiful and luxurious! Some places are so nice that you feel like you are walking on eggshells--afraid to touch anything because it might break. Not here; we were so comfortable. We were able to relax and enjoy the friends and food, beach and beverages, music and merriment. We sat on the comfy couches and played guitars and a ukulele we brought. One night, the adults played a hilarious board game at the dining table while the kids watched movies downstairs--that was after the ping-pong tournament in the garage. Each person in the party took advantage of the short walk to the beach and some of us flew kites. My friend and I even stepped out onto the private patio, where we sat in the cushioned chairs and enjoyed a quiet conversation and the spectacular view. The kitchen was large enough for a few of us to be in there together at the same time. There was plenty of room to put things away (loved the pantry!) so the counters could be clear for food preparation. Although I had brought a few food-prep items from home, I didn’t need them because the kitchen is so well stocked (mixer, slow cooker, lemonade pitcher, among many, many other things). My husband and I were the only two who stayed the last night. In the morning, we ate breakfast in the chairs by the view window--taking in the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful scenery. An all-around top notch accommodation. I'll be saving my pennies so we can go back again.
