The pool was awesome to have in our backyard for days we wanted to just relax and swim. The view of beach of not so great, blocked by power lines and a business across the street. Only downside was couches in living room and bed mattresses could be replaced. They were very worn down and slouchy - Very uncomfortable. Beach was just across the street, easy walk and not far at all. Which was perfect for our smaller ones and older ones. Everything was close by. We rented a golf cart for the week and used it less than a handful of times. I don't believe it was necessary since beach is right across the street. There is little breakfast restaurant two blocks down.

The pool and pool area were a great bonus and allowed the kids to have a place to enjoy the water without being in the ocean. Just two short blocks to the beach made it easy to make it down there each day. Nicole and her husband were highly responsive and wonderful hosts. I can't recommend this rental highly enough!
