Even at full capacity this house has enough of "common space" and "private space" to make an extended family vacation enjoyable. The 1st floor bedroom/bath was perfect for my mom (in her 70s) and my sister with CP who could not navigate the stairs easily. The beach was great - people along, but not overly crowded (as opposed to the high rise hotels and condos with wall to wall people). Had a really nice time. Communication with the owner was effortless.
