Ralph was terrific! He was really good at getting back to me each time I had a question prior to our stay. He even let me drop off our bikes early. The place was clean and very well equipped. The kitchen had everything a cook could need including basic spices and coffee! Having more than enough linens and towels was a huge plus. The washer and dryer came in very handy in such hot humid weather. The yard is beautiful and very private. Mornings on the deck were lovely! The beach is really close but parking was tough all week, however, it was really hot and the beaches were more crowded than usual. Super comfortable beds and furniture. Lots of movies to choose from, surround sound and great music system. We really enjoyed having two living areas where adults could enjoy time away from the kids but still keep a close eye on them. Lots of room for everyone. The pool table was a nice surprise as were the large assortment of games. The only down side was the fact that the air conditioning worked hard to try and keep the back bedrooms on the second floor cool with minimal success even with fans in every room, but I have to admit that it was a really unusually hot week! Extra bonus, close to our favorite ice-cream shop, Holy Cow!! We definitely would return!
