Perfect large family beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home is absolutely perfect for a multi-generation vacation. Everyone has room to spread out with a large common area when all want to be together. Very clean home! The kitchen is well equipped and lots of shelf space for food supplies for a large group. Beach access is perfect and the large decks are amazing. Might want to bring a flashlight for nighttime access. Our large family was so happy with this home and the owner was wonderful to work with.

Thanksgiving with family and friends

  • 4 of 5

We were 4 families that spend Thanksgiving at the house with a total of 8 kids. The house is in a great location and the views out the windows are amazing. We had enough room for all of us and the kids had fun playing. We used the family room as a kids sleeping room, which was perfect. Some things in the house are older and not functioning anymore, but that didn't have an impact on the fun we had. The owner is doing some repairs and once they are done it will be even better.

Fantastic location and view, whale watching

  • 4 of 5

Had plenty of room for 12 adults and 2 teens. Good layout for folks to have their space but also gather together for meals inside and out. Cannot beat the view. Saw several whales spouting from decks throughout the weekend. I was in wheelchair and was able to get around main floor ok but some corners a little tight. Hot tub did not have enough water in it and had to add some so that jets weren't shooting water like a fountain outside of tub. Only worked when slightly overfilled, but jets not adjustable so would still shoot water out of tub. Lights did not work in Hot tub and seemed to lose temp quickly. Microwave and BBQ were gross, had not been cleaned in a LONG time and were not used as a result, which was disappointing as we had planned to bbq. Several lights did not work for porch or outdoor patio downstairs. House was not well cleaned upon arrival...chips/crumbs under the couch, dirty linens under futon and other garbage. Would be better if house had extra linens / blankets for use. Thankfully we brought an extra set of sheets and a couple of blankets just in case. The direct beach access in front of house wasn't the safest. Slippery and only a rope tow line to hold onto. Addition of steps would greatly improve safety and access for relatively low expense.

Even though some of the items above were disappointing and did not live up to expectations based on home description, we still had a great time and loved the view/location.

Nice big house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our group of 12 adults and 3 children. The house was for our big group. The owner is easy to talk to and easy to get a hold of. We enjoyed the ocean view and the easy access to the beach. We would totally stay here again!
