"I hesitate to write this review only because I want to keep the knowledge of this hidden gem all to myself. This house was simply perfect for our family of 7 (we have 5 kids under 7 years old). The inside of the house was comfortable, kid friendly (there were no low placed knickknacks for us to have to rescue from our toddler), and provided plenty of places for all of us to sleep comfortably. The upper bunk beds do not have a guard rail, so we weren't comfortable letting our kids sleep on those. But they loved the two lower bunks and the large air bed (there are tons of air beds and sleeping bags in the upstairs closet). Our kids absolutely loved the closet filled with kid and adult board games, and we spent 2 late nights laughing and playing games.
The kitchen had everything we needed, including plastic plates and cups for kids. There were plenty of blankets and pillows for everyone.
The absolute best part of this property is the proximity to the beach. It is literally steps away. Yet the property is fully fenced, making it possible to keep rambunctious little ones safe. Our kids loved digging in the rocks in the yard. We made a fire in the fire pit and enjoyed hot dogs and marshmallows. There is also a large grassy field right next to the house perfect for kite flying.
The island itself is wonderful. We explored Double Bluff beach (amazing sandy beach) and Fort Casey.
Everyone in our family is talking about when we get to go back to the beach house - mom and dad included!"
