We took a one-week family vacation at this gem of a beach house in the end of May/beginning of June 2014. This house was everything we could have asked for and more. We had a group of 6 adults, one 3-year-old, and one small dog, and we had room to spare. The house was extremely clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. The house sits directly on a beautiful, quiet stretch of beach. We walked on the beach, sat on the porch and watched the waves, and had the pleasure of seeing plenty of dolphins, fish, and other sea animals during our stay. The house was quiet without feeling isolated, and we were just a few minutes' drive away from an excellent grocery store and a great pizza parlor. We also drove into town a couple of times (about 15-20 minutes) because there's a fantastic park with a carousel that my preschooler adored.
A few things the house description doesn't mention: first, this house is very kid-friendly! There are books for kids and a great collection of beach toys that kept my preschooler occupied and happy. For older kids, there are also board games and puzzles. Two of the rooms are even decorated to appeal especially to a younger crowd. Second, the property manager is fantastic. One day we wanted to grill and the grill wouldn't work; within several hours the property manager had replaced the grill with a new one. Finally, unlike other VRBO homes, this manager and homeowner really worked to accommodate us. From letting us check in on any day of the week to even extending our time at the house with very little notice, we felt completely taken care of during our stay.
One thing I would suggest if you stay with young children is to ask for a baby gate to be installed at the top of the stairs. It wasn't a problem for us because my child is used to stairs, but it could be a bit stressful for other families. The house had bed rails in every closet to prevent kids from falling off of a bed, and I think a baby gate would be a great addition, too.
We would return to this house in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for the best vacation we could have asked for!
