"We loved returning to 7 Highland Avenue this year. The location is excellent, in a beautiful neighborhood within easy walking distance of Steps Beach, a 15-min walk to town, a bus stop 2 blocks away, and the wonderful "Something Natural" sandwich shop just 4 blocks away. We explored all parts of the island using the bikes that came with the house, which have baskets for carrying beach stuff or groceries. We were fine doing without a car for the whole week. I love the multi-functional, cozy living space. The living room is the congregating area at all times of day for meals, reading, chatting, playing cards. The ingenious wicker chairs have "lap boards" so you can read, write, and eat comfortably in one spot. Or you can pull out the folding table for additional seating. Personally, I like a bath rather than a shower and the bathtub is roomy and deep in that old-fashioned bathtub-with-feet kind of way. Be aware that the 3rd bedroom is upstairs with steep wooden stairs and a low ceiling, so it's best for kids who are old enough to manage stairs safely, but not fully adult-size yet. Lots of great memories for kids to create up there. Adults can fit upstairs, too, if they are young at heart, agile, and not too picky."
