The house is privately situated with trees & fence on the road side, garage to the rear with bikes & toys, large front yard facing the beach, and another cabin to the opposite side. As shown in the photo, there are trees blocking some of the beach view but providing privacy as well. The house was completely stocked with anything & everything we needed from spices to a million towels, to "soft" toilet paper, etc. We couldn't have asked for a more "move in & relax" kind of house. We loved the goodie basket and even visited the winery which is so close. We had some rainy weather so the screen porch was nice. The mosquitos were bad due to the rain and trees so bug spray was a must. The beach is lovely & the low tides are really low allowing the kids to explore all of the pools & sandbars without us being right there (more sitting & relaxing for moms & dads of young kids). The seals were an added bonus to the allure of the beach. We could see the lighthouse & Wood Island Ferry from our beach. A Canadian park is practically next door so the kids could play on the playground & we could run the park. The house was so close to the beach, I could let my baby nap in the house while I was on the beach & yet easily check on her often. Crabby's seafood at the ferry had excellent seafood to cook at home. The restaurant in Murrey Harbor (in the house-can't remember name) was delicious & the train station restaurant was decent too. Peppers Pizza in Monteque was delicious. Ricks up in St Peters had the best fish & chips I've had on the island. Overall the house was conveniently located to explore the quieter areas of the island, was fully stocked & decorated so cute, great yard and toys for kids, easy access to beach (right in front of us), etc. I would definitely recommend and would love to return some day.
