As this was my first time using VRBO I was a little unsure of what to expect as far as the house was concerned. As it turned out, there was nothing to worry about. The house actually exceeded my expectations! Although the deck was smaller than I expected there was plenty of room to enjoy the view in the backyard. There was also enough beach in the back that you could take a relaxing stroll. The accomodations in the house made it feel like home. The television in the living room was not working during our stay but there were working televisions in each bedroom. To be honest, we had no need for a television anyway. The best part is that there was an ocen view in every room. From the back of the house you could look inland and see mountaintops. Another positive for this particular house is it's location on the island. The main highway does not go completely around the island and the house is close to being halfway between the extremes of the highway. A nearby beach and town added to the convenience. As a bonus, my stepson and his girlfriend got engaged on the last night at the house. Overall, we had an outstanding vacation!
