First I must start by saying that Sandy River Beach is a beautiful, special place! I could not possibly say enough wonderful things about The Sandpiper! It's super cozy, clean and well equipped! The kitchen and living room lay out is spacious, and the bedrooms are removed just perfectly enough so that when our girls go to bed at night, my husband and I can still enjoy a nice evening together without having to tip toe around. We love to eat on the deck and the yard in front is also a great spot for our girls to play while they wait for us to get ready to go down to the beach! The beach is absolutely glorious-not crowded at all! I love being able to watch our children run the length of the beach freely! It's our family time and we cherish every second we're there! And every year as we leave, we're already looking forward to the following year's visit!
