The house is close to the beach, within walking distance (no car needed, and my children didn't complain once about the walk). The house is perfect, and I actually don't think the other reviews gives it enough credit. There is a small room to the right for a single person, and bunk beds for my children that they adored. The master bedroom was ideal. Not only could you sit and have coffee out there in the morning but you could see the ocean while doing so. The other really great option is the sun porch. We had every meal out there. The breeze through the room was amazingly perfect. The outdoor shower was great for a final rinse before going in the house, and the clothes line helped with beach towels and bathing suits. We spent a good portion of our time at the beach but we did venture out, there is so much to do so close.
