A good place to relax
If you want a family vacation without any disturbance and if you want to relax, this is a place I can highly recommend. The furniture, design, etc is so welcoming. Overall, the house is so warm and cozy. It was a home away our home from the first second we entered the house. When we talked to the owner on the phone, she told me that the pictures did not reflect the quality of the house. Well, she was absolutely right! We were five adults and one toddler, and it was perfect for six people.
There are 3 flat screen good size TVs and a DVD player. You will have a good internet access. If you have a little kid, there are lots of kid books (and some -age appropriate- kid DVDs, too) and my 3 years old daughter had so much fun with them because she is a fan of books. The hammock and the grill are in perfect shape. And of course the gazebo! It is perfect for family dinners, to read a book, have evening drinks, even to study, and you will not be bothered by flies, insects, etc. To sum up, you need everything to entertain your family.
The beach is a natural beach. If you are expecting as fancy beach with access to stores, activities etc, this is not your place. But, there are beaches like that pretty close. One of the most important thing for me was that I wanted to rent a house near the ocean and I did not want anything between the house and the ocean (road, other houses, etc) except sand:) You can have long walks on the beach, admire the ocean day and night, and smell the salt in the air all day:) The house was perfect in that sense. However, swimming, hanging on the beach for long hours, shopping etc, were not the things that I was looking for. If you are looking for these kinds of stuff, you need to drive to other beaches. There is a little store for food and house stuff pretty close, but I never checked it. There are stores (department store, liquor store, stores for clothing, etc) in 6-10 miles.
Overall, we, as a family, enjoyed the house. I recommend the house for those families (with or without kids) who are looking for a calm, quiet, relaxing time.
Families with Young Children,
