Every place has a downside, usually. However, our party of 4 with small child grew so happy every time we walked down the grassy yard to the house after being away to the beaches, that we eventually wondered why we even bothered to leave in the first place. The snorkeling out the backyard gate was the best we have ever encountered on this side of Maui. The house was extremely comfortable and well-suited to two couples. The kitchen was the most equipped we've seen in a long time. We sat out every night for dinners that were wonderfully grilled on the outdoor grill. We even "toughed" out a hurricane that never really formed but blew hard and pulled down fronds. However, the real hit in our group was the outdoor shower! Go figure. We all just loved the ease of stepping under sun-warmed water (at least for a few seconds) and getting the sand and salt off without bringing it into the house, with our three-year old grandson prancing around like a naked jaybird after getting squirted off. We obviously relish the simple pleasures, but like I said in the beginning, we really found no downside to this lovely house and property.
