This rental was just as advertised—a luxurious main house and a guest house at the other end of the pool. That made it nice for our three generations of family—the younger generation (mostly in their 20's) stayed in the lower level kids’ room of the main house, where they could make all the noise they wanted without disturbing the older generations on the rest of the property. The bedrooms in the main house are all on the second floor, so it was nice and quiet up there, and the view from the master bedroom was spectacular! Everything was very clean upon our arrival.
The pool table in the main house was especially enjoyed by all, including my 93-year-old dad—who knew he was a pool shark?! The two pools were a nice feature, as was the semi-private beach (too bad the blustery weather brought so much seaweed, though). We used the outside grills a couple times, and the outdoor seating worked great for our large crowd. The kitchen was a decent size, and the two refrigerators were a definite plus. A couple of issues that should be mentioned—there’s no bathroom in the lower level where the kids’ room is, and the wifi only seems to work in the main house, not in the guest house.
Some of the features of the rental were a bit confusing, like the humidifier settings, the pool temp. settings, and the newfangled cooktop (we had to look at the manual to figure out what all the settings were). The owner, Bronia, was very helpful, though, and responded to all our questions and complaints fairly quickly, and was very accommodating to our needs.
We would recommend this place to anyone with a large group—it’s a beautiful, quiet getaway in a lovely town. Oh, and we’d definitely recommend a night out at the restaurant that easily accommodated our large group—The Tides—fantastic food and service—one of the best steaks I’ve ever had!
The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is because we did have to make quite a few calls to the owner about some maintenance issues--it really is a fantastic place, and if those issues are handled it will definitely rate five stars.

Owner's Response: I have labeled and put instructions for all the above mentioned items, including pool and spa heaters (definitely complicated, but better now with labels) and cooktop.
Thanks for the comments as it helps me make things better
