The house is very well kept and very clean. The beach is literally across the (very quiet) street, and it took us about five minutes to get down there. It's very close. The house had everything we needed, except for actual beach chairs. It had lawn chairs, but if you want real, low to the ground beach chairs, bring some! My only comment is that this house may not be perfect for families with babies/small toddlers. The living area is upstairs, with the bedrooms downstairs. The stairway is wide and tiled. Our baby gate wouldn't actually fit across, so we had to move the couch in front of the staircase and move it out of the way every time we went up or down the stairs to prevent my twelve month old from taking a nasty tumble. Not a negative or the owners fault, obviously, but something that other people with babies should be aware of! Loved the house, would definitely come back!
