"perfect get-a-away location. The owner lived close by, so when there were questions he was quick to respond and even drop by. Quick walk to the private beach. Great for family / kids! The big deck was great play area for kids, and the spa was a nice touch for the adults in the evenings."Guest: paul b. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 18, 2014View listing

"Our family came and gathered from different parts of the country to celebrate our mom's 80th birthday. The house was perfect. We enjoyed a big family BBQ, swimming, playing games, hanging around the fire pit (with amazing views!) Plenty of beds and we loved the beautiful large kitchen area where we could easily all come together. The only thing we would do differently is stay a little longer!"Guest: Diane A.

"We had a great week at the house June 2014! It was plenty of space for 3 adults and 1 kid, and we used all the porches. =) We walked to Windandsea Beach and two a couple places for dinner. It was a good place and I'd stay there again. The house is very well decorated, and kids who like to touch things may get frustrated. The beach towels seem to have been replaced by white towels."Guest: Eliza Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 24, 2014View listing
