We actually caught Melissa and her son in the process of setting up the house for us. And the moment we walked in, it was evident that they took utmost care to ensure that the house was comfy including well stocked bathrooms, kitchen utilities, books, and board games.
The house is just a few paces away from the closest beach and better sandy beach at Shore Road is less than a 5 minute drive away. Even restaurants such as Longshore (great dinner!) and Lazy Lobster (lovely breakfast) and a few minutes driving distance from the house.
Melissa is an extremely helpful person and was always prompt in responding to mails, queries, and also took care of mailing back my phone charger that I had left back at the beach house.
All in all, I'd highly recommend Melissa's home if one wishes to experience a beautiful homestay and a gracious host!
