We just returned from our third stay in this vacation home. Our family is already asking if we can go back, which we definitely plan to do next summer.
The house is absolutely perfect for our family of 8 adults and 6 children (ages 9mo-11yrs). There is even a crib, high chair, pack n' play, stroller, and even a doorway jumper for the baby. It is very comfortable and clean and very well maintained. While there are a few quirky things about the house (old electrical system, funky master shower) they actually add character. The floor plan works very well for those wanting some privacy and for lots of togetherness. There are no worries about the children's safety. There is a beautiful front lawn, fenced and secure; an inner courtyard, completely visible from kitchen and living areas; and a huge back yard with covered patio, open flagstone area, and large grassy area with an outdoor shower, also completely fenced and secure. There is plenty of space for parking, both in the garage and driveway. The hot tub is a major plus for everyone! The kayaks, paddle boards (and life vests), ping pong table, and bikes are also a big hit! There always seems to be plenty of beach toys in the shed, so bringing those is not necessary. The kitchen is well equipped. We cooked meals every day. The living room is huge, the master bedroom is large as well, and all the rooms are very comfortable.
The location can't be beat; directly on the bay, very short walk to the ocean, walking distance to many restaurants, stores, activities; two doors down from the Catamaran Resort. The grandchildren loved going to the bird show there. There are private houses on either side, so it is very quiet. The fireworks from Sea World every night can be viewed from the back yard.
Both the owners, and the property manager were very helpful and wonderful to work with. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone (but not on my week)!
