Perfect Private Beach w/Warm Water - Walk to Town
Immediately on arrival, when we opened the front door and stepped into the house, all we could say was "wow". The views in every direction were crystal clear waters, diving Ospreys, colorful gardens and an occasional kayak, sailboat or motor boat pulling kids on a tube going by. The kids quickly got into their bathing suits and headed straight to “our” private beach. There was an ample supply of water and beach toys so they stayed busy while we unpacked the cars. We could monitor the kids playing from the combined kitchen, dining room and living room area, with the adjacent full wrap around deck which also became our private waterfront restaurant later in the evening. The location, and extremely well equipped kitchen, made it so we rarely chose to get in the cars to go out for meals (although some of us did walk to the Black Dog a couple of mornings for breakfast at their beach) and the beach sand and water was perfect, so we really lived at the house all week
The house was very clean, but not so pretentious that we felt a little sand from the beach, or a kid with a wet bathing suit coming into the house would be a problem for the owners and when the kids got wiped out from the beach and water activities, there was a nice family room at the beach level with multiple couches, a ping pong table and a wide screen TV/entertainment center that kept them out of the parents way while we enjoyed preparing the meals and enjoying some wine and conversation upstairs.
A couple of nice evenings, we all walked into town together and got ice cream at Mad Martha’s which the kids are still talking about.
I could go on, but needless to say, the location (beach, warm protected water, nearness to town), the house (kitchen, decks, bedrooms with water views and numerous bathrooms), and the patio (fire pit, charcoal barbecue numerous sitting areas and colorful gardens) will assure that we will certainly return to this spot next year!
