Thank you for opening up your home - we enjoyed our stay tremendously!
I made Thanksgiving dinner there and brought most of the food down from the Bay Area, the kitchen worked very well to feed my family and a few friends on Thanksgiving.
The hot tub is a big plus because my kids surf and needed to warm up after being in the ocean.
The gas grill is very important to the way we cook.
Bikes are good although we did not use them this time.
The new code/lock and no keys is very good - I worried about losing the keys last time.
The four big beach towels were great this time - not sure if you had them two years ago.
Kitchen dishes/supplies were about right for our family of 6.
Washer/dryer is great to have.
Beds were very comfortable and the sheets were comfortable since the night air was cool.
The chairs and bar on the outside porch are so inviting - the kids did homework, ate and relaxed out there a lot.
The large TV was great for watching college football and movies.
Bocce ball was nice to have - don't think that was available two years ago.
Of course, being right on The Strand is amazing - the ocean is so beautiful
1.With three kids in college and one in high school, the kids prefer to sleep separately. So if you ever need to replace the sofa in the room where the bikes are stored, to replace it with a daybed would be good. We did see the air mattress and I also brought one down - but did not use them. One son slept on the living room sofa with sheets.
2. Netflix? We wanted to start watching Christmas movies like "Elf" and assumed it would be on. Possibly having a movie subscription would be nice but not necessary.
Again, thank you for opening up your home to us - it is an experience that I would not have ever expected our family to have and now we've done it twice!
