"We took a week vacation with our twin, 20-year-old sons, and grandparents, and were torn if we should rent directly on the beach, or on the bay side. This house ended up being the perfect match for our laundry list of priorities. We needed a home on a single level for my father in law who has mobility issues, we needed to be near enough to the beach and other things to do for our sons, and we needed a full kitchen and good size dining/gathering space as I have celiac and prepare most meals for the family myself.
The home has a very spacious, open feel to it, and the gathering places (kitchen/family TV/pool) are all connected, with easy access to bedrooms, bathrooms, and garage. We used the large dining space to finish a monster puzzle over the week, a long standing family tradition. All but one meal was prepared in the full kitchen, the appliances are of good quality, and the cookware and utensils were adequate. We used the grill several times, and ate almost every meal at the dining table by the pool. The grocery store was a 5 minute drive and had everything anyone could need, even for me. One night we ate a delicious meal at Euphemia Hayes, including a trip upstairs to their unbelievable dessert room.
My father in law was able to sit with us by the pool, watch our boys fish off the dock, and could put his feet up in a comfy chair in the evening, so he never felt isolated. Our boys absolutely loved having the bicycles available, and took off to the beach and to go explore quite a bit. The bike paths are fantastic. The beach access was like having a private beach, it was so quiet and the water was so clear. If the boys weren’t on a bike, they were jumping in the pool, and all of us enjoyed the floats provided.
The bedrooms all had good mattresses, and high quality linens. Towels, including beach towels, were plentiful, and the house was very clean when we arrived. Parking in the garage was a bonus, getting the car out of the hot sun was a blessing for us Northeners.
Overall, we couldn’t have been more pleased with this rental. Marcia checked on us several times to make sure all was well, and answer any questions we had. This property truly felt like home from the time we walked in the door, and we would definitely plan to stay again in the future."
