The Perfect House
Submitted: July 3, 2012

Selecting a vacation rental for a family reunion is not an easy task.
There were 14 of us with a span of ages from 2 to 66.
We arrived in four packed SUV's with 16 bikes, two surf boards, and numerous baby strollers.
We descended on 226 Willow like a swarm of bees.
The house could not have been better for our needs.
The location was perfect, the layout of the house was great for a family with diverse needs.
Mary (owner of the house) had shared with me earlier that this was in fact their family home. All five of their children were raised in this house so yes, it was and is child friendly.
Some of the favorite rooms included the kitchen with a large circular table, great cooking appliances, and plenty of pantry space which also occupied the washer and dryer.
The second most occupied room was the upstairs TV/play room which comes with games, two comfortable sofas, and a large TV.
The two outdoor spaces, both front and back were used all of the time by all members of the family.
The house comes totally equipped with linens, bedding, and a great library which doubles as a office.
We all loved being in this house and for some reason I sense the house loves having families occupy it.
My husband and I were the last two in the house waiting to be checked out and we looked at one another and said...well maybe we could stay here longer, just the two of us...
Owner's Response: I agree I think our Victorian Lady loves having families stay. A lot of love and happiness has been shared in the house and the energy is very positive. Both the Crostics and Pathaks wrote lovely reviews and we appreciate them.
