As two couples, each with a small dog, we were seeking a weekly rental that was spacious, comfortable, quiet, dog friendly, close to the water and easily accessible to town. The barn more than met all these requirements. Everything you could possibly need was inside, and if something was not (in our case, a knife sharpener - we had two fussy cooks), the owners ran out and bought one for us. Looking at the map we knew in advance it would be approximately a 15-20 minute walk into the center of town. The walk on Commercial Street however is lovely, and when we so wanted, calling for taxi's was a snap. Other than driving to the ocean side beach and grocery store, we left the cars in the spaces that came with the unit. The bay beach is only one block away, and it was wonderful to walk there in the morning with the dogs and a cup of coffee. Of course, the sunsets were fantastic as well. Bonuses included a washer/dryer, plenty of towels (separate towel supply for the dogs) new bbq, large deck, with gates to keep in the dogs, property abuts a community garden filled with flowers. Overall, a very comfy beach house.
