I highly recommend this home if you are seeking a venue for a beach ceremony as well as a reception. We rented the home for my daughter's wedding and were able to accomodate both families as well as all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Having an elevator was wonderful as we had a few disabled guests at the wedding and they were able to access all areas of the home. It was reassuring as well to know that if it rained on the scheduled events, we had a beautiful, beachfront place to hold the events. That did happen for the rehearsal but the house is so tastefully decorated and furnished that it was no problem having it indoors. Having two floors also allowed for the bride and groom to stay on separate floors the day of the wedding until it was time for the ceremony. The master suite was wonderful as it allowed for 2 hairdressesrs to come to the home the day of the wedding. The owner and caretaker are absolutely wonderful, professional and available. This property made my daughter's dream come true.
