Even better than the pictures! This house was spacious, well lit, very relaxing. Between the large yet cozy kitchen and the sun drenched porch, we had plenty of places to hang out. Twelve scientists stayed here for a conference, and not once did we feel crowded. The house is definitely not as close to the beach as other comments made it sound, but the pool makes up for it. A really, really nice place, although you do need a car, since it's a bit tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. This house was also well furnished in small household items like sponges, papertowels, trashbags, toilet paper, etc, which made the stay much easier.
