Everything you could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome place for a family vacation! We had 6 adults and 4 kids and never felt like we were "stepping on each other's toes". There was plenty of room for everyone to lounge and enjoy the spacious living room & kitchen and the pool/deck area was fabulous! The views of the ocean from the deck area and back of the house were incredible; and it helped that we had perfect weather while we were there! The pool was a godsend when it got windy and the ocean was a bit too rough for our younger kids. And we loved the Sonos system while out on the deck area. Everything we needed was provided. Between the beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, kayak, and noodles, we didn't need anything else! We loved the fact that it was right on the ocean and we didn't have to worry about the kids walking down to play on the beach. Even though there are houses on both sides, you wouldn't even notice it as the trees create a feeling of seclusion and privacy. We did experience an issue with the fridge, but Mike made sure that someone was out the next day to fix the issue. We also appreciated Mike walking us thru the house to make sure the "finer points" of the A/C, TV, and pool controls were explained. Mike was great to work with! We will definitely make sure we come back!
