"I stayed with my family, which includes 2 small children. The house was perfect for us. There are enough rooms to accommodate multiple families comfortably. The back deck was very large and the hot tub was a great feature. At night the deck lights made rainbow colors, the kids loved this feature!
This listing did not have a lot of reviews when we booked, so I wasn't sure about a few things, but was happy that we found this listing last minute.
Some info for future guests:
-About a 7 minute walk from the ferry. Shorter walk if you are going from the house to the start of the town (opposite side of ferry).
-Same amount of walking to get to the beach. The house is on the bay side, there is one swimming option for the bay side, it is off the deck closer to town with a lifeguard present.
-There are most things that are needed in the kitchen. Random spices, coffee filters, tin foil, pots/pans, reg coffee pot and Keurig machine. There are only ice trays, no ice maker, so plan accordingly.
-It was mentioned, but the room with the blue couch is on the other side of the deck, so kind of detached from the house. We only used it for the bathroom when in the hot tub.
-Plenty of towels! Also, extra blankets, and pillows if you need.
-All AC units worked well.
-WIFI worked great in the house.
-Small soap, shampoo, and conditioner provided.
A few suggestions that I have:
-New pans for the kitchen. They are very scratched up and the Teflon is scratching off. This may not bother some, just something I noticed.
-There are about 4 beach chairs. We only used 2 of them, so I'm not sure of the condition of all of them. But they did seem like they were on their last leg, and some, missing the back pack straps to carry with more ease.
-There were NO beach umbrellas. I specifically asked about this (because it was not listed on the listing), and was told there was one.
-Neither umbrella on the deck works properly. The large navy one did not open, and seemed to be missing a major piece. The tan one was on such a wobbly stand, that it was a danger to have open. It is hard to enjoy the beautiful deck, when it is very sunny and hot.
-The couch with the blue cushions was very nice, but can use some upgraded cushions. They were very flat and it was uncomfortable to sit on.
-The hot tub did not get very hot. It was comfortable, but only went to about 85 degrees (this could be a pro or a con).
-The WIFI router is on the opposite side of the house, which made the reception a"
