We stayed 2 weeks with 6 adults and 3 young kids. It was very hot during the days so we made constant use of the pool and outdoor lounging under the ceiling fans. The A/C also worked great so we were always comfortable. The kitchen is small but adequate even for large meals, and has all the appliances we needed. People come by and tidy up the pool and house every other day, which was very necessary due to all the sand that gets tracked around the house.
For us it was about a 10 min walk with strollers to get to the beach. The road is gravel and dirt so it helps to have decent quality strollers that can handle that. The nearest beach entrance also has a rental place which is very convenient for renting surf/paddle/boogie boards. We had tons of fun playing in the surf and on the beach with the kids.
Colin was very responsive and also flexible with the arrangements.
Some minor things that could be improved:
- landscaping could be improved around the outdoor shower, was kind of hard to navigate around some logs
- maid could be more thorough with the floors and bathrooms, was getting grimy near the end of our stay.
Bring DIY popsicle kit for the kids.
We had a great time, and will recommend!
