We love staying at Gauntlett House. This was our family's second year and we're already looking forward to returning next year! Celeste and Dexter are wonderful hosts. The house is truly well stocked. I usually pack extra paper towels, garbage bags, toilet paper, etc when we rent vacation properties, but we didn't even need to bring any of it. Our family enjoys riding bikes up and down Lakeshore Drive. West Side County park just down the road has a nice playground for younger children. The location is perfect for driving to Earl's or Crane's for donuts and berries for "second breakfast". The private beach with the shady palapa is the highlight of this property. It is a delight to have your own space away from the crowds during the day. The bonfires on the beach at night are very fun and something you can't enjoy at the public beaches.
