The pictures online do not do this home justice. The view is breathtaking everyday. We spent a lot of time on the lanai next to the ocean eating our meals, playing games, and enjoying the view. We used the hot tub on a daily basis and really enjoyed sitting in the hot tub while we watched our son surf on the waves behind the home. The fire pit was an unexpected bonus that allowed us to make smores and enjoy a fireside/oceanside family experience. In the evenings the hot tub was a great retreat for the adults to retire to and enjoy a glass of wine and a relaxing outdoor night experience that is indescribable.
The neighbor/host family has a lovely little dog that is very well mannered that we all enjoyed spending time with. He was always excited to see us and the children loved spending time with him.
We had 21 people in the home and never felt crowded. Eating meals on the lanai gave us plenty of room when everybody gathered together at once.
Tip: We were the first ones to arrive at the house....so we got to choose our bedroom first. Choose the "Sunrise Room". This room is on the second floor and has two large windows that present the ocean to you in a breathtaking manner. You can lay in bed and enjoy watching the sunrise out of the ocean every morning.
