Fantastic home, location and amenities! We had a young family in the attached unit, and six in the main home itself. We walked to the beach every day, and ate out on the large deck for almost every meal. Plenty of room inside for a family of ten to visit and play games. Mary Ann, the owner, was extremely helpful thru-out the entire process. Hopefully, we can return for another family reunion soon.
