                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We had our annual ladies retreat at this beautiful home this year for the first time. We have stayed in many houses and I cannot say enough about how well thought out this house was when it comes to having this many people stay in one house. We had 50 ladies there at one time and we had a blast. They layout is such that those who wanted to go to bed early could without being bothered by those who wanted to stay up and play cards or talk. The majority of the bedrooms are at the back of the home or on the lower level and they all seemed to be well insulated. This was the first year I did not receive complaints about not being able to sleep because of noise. The ladies were so thrilled that we could all fit in the living area for our Bible study and singing with room to spare and Everyone had a comfy seat. The kitchen and dining is so large that feeding 50 ladies was the easiest it has ever been. We were not tripping over each other to get our food or drinks. Like I said, the lay out and the way the kitchen was put together was so well thought out that is made the job of organizing this retreat so very easy. The owner was so easy to work with and quick to communicate with. The home was decorated beautifully and the furniture very comfortable. We were there early in spring so while the sun was out, it was cool and windy so we didn't get on the beach much but we didn't miss it because the porches on this house had views that went on forever. A cup of coffee and a rocking chair on that ocean side porch was just the most peaceful way to start the day. We have stayed in many houses over the years and this is the first time that I didn't have one lady complain about anything about the house and that is saying a lot when you get 50 together at one time, I did, however have many ladies tell me to be sure to book it for next year. There was nothing but praise and amazement at how blessed we were to be there. If you have a big crowd, this is the house you want.
