The photos definitely do not do the house justice! It is cleaned, roomy (with the top floor room with private living room, balcony, bathroom and a separate entrance through the balcony = perfect for a family with small kids if you want your own space and away from the rest of the house for a bit). The backyard is HUGE and provided us space for so many fantastic Corn Hole games. The balcony with seating and the grill make each of our dinner that much more exciting. (Just don't forget your OFF :)) We wished there was more lighting for it though.
Besides a short drive to Super Market, seafood store (around 3-5mins), or downtown (8mins, and you can UBER it! because you definitely don't want to drink and drive on a night around town). The house is also only a very short walk to Beach 2, and restaurants/bars/liquor stores around there (FLO is our absolute favorite!) When the moon was out we even walked to the beach at night to enjoy the scenery over the ocean. A great reminder why we leave NYC in the summer and come here every year.
Jim and Gail are also amazing hosts, the best you could ask for. Not only they were excellent with communications, they went above and beyond to make our stay fantastic. There was a little hiccup when we first arrived with the WIFI. As soon as the store was opened, Jim got all the brand new equipments and installed the WIFI in the house again before we even got back from the beach. And that's the kind of hosts they are.
We'll definitely be back next year!
