I stayed at the Cro's Nest for a week in August with my adult children and we had a wonderful time. The view was breathtaking and we spent many days sitting by the bonfire watching the seagulls and pelicans. There was an adorable chipmunk that visited us several times. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We only had to purchase a few toiletries and laundry soap once we arrived. We cooked or grilled on the gas grill almost every night and loved having dinner in the sunroom. The steps to the water were a little scary the first time I went down, but they were fine after that. I don't think I would recommend them for children though. My husband did a little fishing off the dock and caught several fish. We didn't swim off the dock since there wasn't really a beach area of any kind, but you could jump off the dock into the water if you wanted to or walk into the water on the large rocks. We swam at several of the local beaches and had a great time. The owner Jack was very friendly and helpful. The home was clean and ready for us to enjoy our stay when we arrived. We would definitely recommend the house. We all had a wonderful vacation and would be happy to return again in the future.
