This is a family owned property. Four sisters own the oceanfront lot that holds Hillside & the other buildings on our property. We have been visiting the area since we were babies - we are very fortunate.
The Owner purchased this estate in 1975
Thank you for sharing your home with our family. What a special place!as the temperatures crested over 100 degrees back home, we appreciated the Colleen evenings and afternoon breezes.... Whew. The girls throughly enjoyed the trampoline and the swimming pool and the many adventures with their cousins. We appreciated the time to unplug, and the tennis court!
We (10 of us-5 adults/5 teenagers) just spent a week at this property and absolutely loved it. It was a perfect place for the whole family. We loved the pool, the tennis court and the waterfront views.
The house was very clean, spacious and offered everything that we needed. The owners are friendly and answered any and all of the questions that we had.
I would highly recommend this property to everyone.
