I just spent two days and two nights in this home with 16 young people (senior high) and 5 adults, and we had an absolute fantastic time. The home was exceptionally clean and very comfortable. The common areas were a little crowded with that many people, but that only added to the warmth and closeness. I guess if I had to describe it in one word it would be "cozy". The kids loved the place and they all want to return. The best part about this rental, however, is not the home but the owner. I often go through VRBO to find accommodations for groups of young and old and this is the best owner I have dealt with. She is very friendly, caring, and accommodating, and I am certain that she is that way with all her guests. The best part, though, was the way she encouraged us. Working with young people can be difficult and, in Susan, we found a homeowner who really urged us to continue our endeavors. We will be going back, probably often, and we can thank the owner for that.
My family of 16 people (6 different family units) fit comfortably in this spacious home. It was comfortable with many nice amenities (a great screened in porch, huge deck, games, beach chairs/towels). The rooms were cozy and decorated creatively in keeping with the period of the home. The owners were helpful and prompt with daily needs and recommendations for activities in the area. We all had a great time and would recommend it to anyone!
