My family of 15 came from all over the East coast and descended into the Katydid. (9 adults, 3 boy teens and 3 girl grade school) There was plenty of room for all of us.
The bedrooms are spacious and separated from each other, so you don't feel like you are on hearing everything in the next room. Two queen pull out sofas for the boys. Three full bathrooms clean and 1/2 bath on first floor.
We loved the two balconies located in the front with a view of the ocean...beautiful! We were there every morning and evening. They provided much entertainment from the storm that rolled in, to the moonlit sea and the sound of the ocean at night. The balcony on the back of the house provided additional eating space.
Kitchen well supplied and large enough. Living room space was accommodating for all of us. Appreciated the 1st floor laundry room/bathroom/pantry. Back staircase entering into the kitchen was useful as well as an outdoor shower and rinse area for sandy feet.
The house location is near grocery store and ice cream shops. I would recommend renting a golf cart. Our older boys enjoyed this very much and provided great fun for exploring the island and hopping to the grocery story. The house has an outdoor outlet to plug into the golf cart.
The beach is right across the street, which was a new experience for this family. We loved the convenience. You never know what you are going to get when you see pictures on line. You kind of just hope for the best. We got exactly what we wanted and it was the best! Thank you to the owners for opening their house to us.
