"We had a family of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids)...we loved this house. Its pretty close to the beach, I will say with 4 kids ages 3-10 and adding all the beach stuff that its a lil much of a walk. There were so many of us adults that we could carry most of the stuff (pop up, boards, cooler, cart, bags, etc). Our kids did fight over the bunk beds. I'm not sure why there are not 2 sets, as it would take up less space in the small room. I loved how equipped the kitchen was, you can tell this is someone's 2nd home. Things like (matches, scissors, pen/paper, wine opener, cleaning agents, so forth were all there!!! The beds were nice (not cheapo bedding), the TV's all worked, furniture was nice. My favorite item in the house was the vacuum! I'm a SAHM, and it was a Shark, it was like Christmas. I actually came home and bought the same vacuum locally! The pool is smaller, but ample for our needs. Our kids used it a lot, loved that its fenced separate from the rest of the areas. The only thing we didn't enjoy about this place was the patio & the fact that there was NO bathtub (we had a problem since we had smaller kids with us which are used to baths). But the patio...Don't get me wrong it was nice, and we used it, but there was NO umbrella or shade of any kind so we could only enjoy it at certain times it was just too hot (melted citronella candles hot) which was a shame because it was so nice. The sidewalk leading to the pool was blistering hot so we used the water hose from the pool to cool it so our kids could walk on it. The outdoor shower was very nice too, it was clean enough, and not creepy feeling. This home is very well suited for 2 families with kids. Or a larger family & grandparents. If we come down again with the same amount of people I will not think twice about renting this house. Even the dishes, and cookware, kitchen gadgets were upscale. The beach access has a lot of dunes, so if you bring a beach cart be prepared to have some muscle with you. Its not a flat type access point, so with stuff & tired kids ( our 3yr old fell asleep everyday @ the beach) its a challenge climbing back up the dunes, but totally doable. Thank you for sharing your home, we enjoyed it, Penny was very accommodating and enjoyable to work with! This is not some rental home managed by a big time rental company...which is a blessing!"
