About Frank Wallace
Chuck, David and I (Frank) , all retired educators, acquired Villa CREF (college Retirement Equities Fund :-} in 1998 as a retirement residence large enough to give each of us his own living space. I am in the cottage. David and Chuck in separate parts of the big house. It's ideal for our needs! 6500 square feet! We have had summer renters for 15 years, many back for several summers. They have all been great to have as guests. You would be too. By the way, our gardens were on the National Garden tour for four summers!
Frank Wallace purchased this Estate in 1998

Unique and Wonderful Oceanfront Gem
We've spent a number of wonderful, extended summer vacations here and look forward to coming back again soon. The spectacular location and spacious house with expansive kitchen makes this the perfect place for our family to unwind and enjoy the beauty of the ocean at our doorstep. Nights were spent on the upper deck stargazing and during the day we explored the surrounding area or just spent our time sitting in the hammock or on the porch reading taking in the sea breeze.
Our grown children joined us during parts of our stay and there was no need to look for restaurants - we just headed to the local seafood shop and ate at home most nights with freshly caught local fish and a bottle of wine on the patio with the ocean as a backdrop. There's even a garden that provided freshly picked herbs and vegetables to make our meals that much more special, along with the beautifully manicured flower gardens that added so much to the experience.
My favorite spot in the house was sleeping in the third floor room facing the ocean. We'd leave the windows open and let the waves lapping on the shore lull us to sleep and wake up to them in the morning.
Staying here is such a unique experience, it's hard to put into words all the wonderful memories we've made during our stays and we hope to make it back soon. Thanks again for everything Frank, Chuck and David
Gardens of Eden
We had several unique considerations when renting a house. First, it had to be handicap accessible, second it had to entertain 2 adolescent boys, third it had to be restful for overtired parents/caregivers and finally, have a view. This location met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations! The gardens were the best surprise of all- simply stunning! The house was well maintained, the pool was a blast- the views from the third floor bedroom were amazing. The hosts were available without hovering. I can not say enough about our experience. We were able to accommodate my mother in law on a first floor bedroom with bathroom. While the house has a step or two, my mother in law was able to be in her bedroom, enjoy the views from the living room and sit on the porch with little effort. The only challenge was getting into town by bike- not being used to such tight roads and blind curves, we were a bit intimidated at first. But we quickly overcame our anxiety and took on the challenge. We would highly recommend this house!
Than you so much!!
What a generous and beautifully detailed review.
We are in your debt.
Keep well... and come back some day.
