This will have been the 5th property I have rented for my immediate family (15-20 attendees) in as many years. Far and away this was the best maintained property we have stayed at, and the array of amenities is really impressive. Being both on the beach, with your own pool and hot tub were really added pluses. Each of the upper floor bedrooms also gets a great view of the sunrise and sunset.
We have people from 4yo to 75yo. There is ample room for everyone to have their own space, but the living room and wrap around patio on the 2nd floor is really the hallmarks of the gathering. Surf City is also just about the right speed, you basically has the beach to yourself if you wanted to build sand castles or even setup a volleyball net.
The detached cottage is great as either a quiet place for an afternoon nap, or the after-hours club for the 20 somethings that seem to want to stay up until dawn.
It was a pleasure to work with Suzanne and this trip came off without a hitch. I can't believe how fast the week went.
