"As indicated in other reviews, as impressive as the photos and descriptions on this website portray A New World, this is one of those rare cases where reality will exceed your expectations.
The attention to detail, mentioned by other reviewers, was a major factor for my wife in choosing to celebrate her 60th birthday at A New World. She was not disappointed!
The home has a warm feel and is decorated with a pleasing, ocean theme aesthetic. The stocking of the home is well thought out: coffee beans, ready to grind; air freshener in each bathroom; very well stocked kitchen, with all the dishes, silverware, utensils, pots, pans, coffee makers, mixers, crock pots, two ovens, a gas stovetop, two refrigerated drawers for soda, wine (or whatever) in addition to a nice side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. It just goes on and on...even pancake mix and syrup! If you don't feel like doing any real cooking, there is a Papa Murphy's take n' bake pizza place about half of a mile from the house.
The open floor plan--with the kitchen, a very comfortable living room (with a large television), large "formal" dining room table, in addition to the dining table extending from the kitchen (which you will most likely use the most)---all provide spectacular ocean views.
Outside there is a Weber charcoal grill, as well as a wood fire pit with long forks for grilling hot dogs (a big hit with our guests). Spend a little extra for the Hebrew National hot dogs at Safeway--they are really good! Lots of chairs outside also.
As nice as the house is, and it is very nice, THE OCEAN is the star of the show. The view, from inside the house, will blow you away. For me, the wildlife that share the property were an additional unexpected treat. In the week and a half my wife and our guests spent at A New World, we were pleased to see deer, turkeys, very large rabbits, and a couple of grey foxes. Those were on the property.
On the beach below, you will see lots of birds; mostly seagulls, but geese, ducks, egrets and other birds will likely join the party. My wife and I were also happy to see a lone seal swim in front of us on one of our visits to the beach (via the private access).
Although all of my contacts regarding A New World have been with Lynda, I would like to commend both Bob and Lynda for their vision and hard work in discovering a diamond in the rough a number of years ago and turning it into a very special place.
My wife and I both look forward to our next visit."
