Older home that is well maintained, well-stocked and very clean. At first glance we were nervous about the window air conditioners and wood paneling walls, however the house was perfect! The window air conditioners kept the home cool and the wood paneling walls add character that is hard to find these days. Our 5 kids loved the beach and the private access. There was nobody around us and we had a blast dominating the private beach on a holiday weekend. The house had towels, toys, and chairs for everything beach-fun! Because we have 5 kids, we did have to purchase some additional toys for everyone. There were several "left behind" bottles of toiletries, spices, cleaning supplies, etc... in case you forget something (convenient if you need something last minute). We did have to buy toilet paper before our week ended but CVS was close by, so no worries.
The kitchen was updated and newly renovated. The living room furniture was a little worn but comfortable. The bedrooms have their own A/C units and could be adjusted. There was 1 bedroom and bath on the first level, and 3 bedrooms, 1 bath upstairs. We knew the 2 bathrooms might be a stretch for our family of 7 but we managed.
I would recommend getting up a little early and walking to The Lighthouse bakery for fresh doughnuts...yummy! Scooter, bike and boat rental was just a quick walk across the street. Restaurants were nearby (we drove but you could walk). The neighborhood (street) was quaint and friendly. We never left the house on The 4th and could watch more than 15 different firework displays...GORGEOUS and MEMORABLE!!
I gave it 4 stars because the house was a little older and there were some small inconveniences like: no A/C in the bathrooms and it got hot (but you could open the window), the paddle boat that was offered did not work, the canoe was unusable, and the laundry room did not connect from inside the house.
I would stay again because it was priced right, and the kids had a blast and didn't notice the small issues.
