The home was in very good condition and we had a great time here. We stayed over the 4th of July and could see fireworks from the deck and also from the backyard...very nice to avoid the crowds! Cliffs are easy walking distance at about 4 blocks. One caution...we were told that the backyard was secure for a dog, but the fence on the side of the house is a 2 foot tall wrought iron gate that my pekingese (and I did tell them my dog was small) was easily able to slip through and be out front. We had gates in case we needed to gate her in the house, and were able to block it, so it worked out, but keep that in mind if you take any dog. Our friends had planned to bring their beagle but did not..but she could have probably jumped the fence. We had 12 people there-and were able to accommodate all without utilizing the couch in the master bedroom so that was nice. Gas stove was a little tricky but worked well once we got the hang of it. 2 of the bikes had flat tires, but we had enough bikes without them. Dining room looks much bigger in the pictures, but it is accurately described as seating 6. The seating area out back is very nice, we ate most of our meals out there. Service was good, we would definitely recommend this property.
