My wife, dog and myself are experienced VRBO travelers. At Ryder Farm, we enjoyed all the animals and the soft approach of Harriet, the on-site owner. At first, we had trepidation about staying at a property where the owner was actively living. Within minutes were were comfortable with Harriet and her personality. She has a true sense of balance, where you enjoy a brief, easy conversation and then feel comfortable passing by her on the Farm without much more than a smile. And the place is way-cool. Just a small walk to the dunes and the expansive beach! The accommodations are 'beach' style, but comfortable. If you need a lot of "resort pampering", this may not be your style. If you enjoy rustic, country/beach time, animals by your window throughout the day, and a charming (& clean!) living space, you will certainly enjoy what Harriet has to offer at her Ryder Beach Farm.
