I took my parents and young son to the beach for a few days and we had a lovely time. The cottage has everything you need including an outdoor shower, great gas grill, and a comfortable and attractive living area. It gets nice bay breezes through the new windows which all have working screens. By beach cottage standards these were very comfortable beds with comfortable linens. I read some older reviews which expressed concerns about the gas stove not having low burner capacity - we didn't find that to be the case on our visit. Another review mentioned they don't have a bath which sometimes can be challenging with young children but my four year old loved taking rinse offs under the trees in the outdoor shower, which was very private, had hot water, a bench, hooks, and plenty of room to rinse and dress. The house has central air, although it was so breezy we never needed to turn it on. Although the cottage is great, the very best thing is the short stroll to the bay beach. This is a perfect kid beach - has a few swings, a slide, shaded picnic tables, no surf, and lots of nice sand. We had a great visit and hope to go back one day soon.
