“Great place for beach vacation with kids”

We stayed there a week in late August. Well, this is probably the best family beach vacation we ever had besides all inclusive resorts, and this is despite the storm that robbed us of a couple of beach days. It's a bit pricey, but it is well worth the price.

House is spacious and well equipped. We are two adults and three kids, and we celebrated our daughter's birthday there and had a few visitors, for a total of four adults and five kids. No problem accommodating everybody, but this is probably as many as it can take.

House literally sits on the beach. Nothing separates you from the bay. During the week, there is nobody around, the nearest neighbors are half a dozen houses away. People come for the weekend, but they are not noisy or disruptive. No crazy jets or speedboats, and no jet fighters either. Very peaceful and calm.

Water is great and always warm and for a couple of hundred feet it is no more than grown-up waist deep. You can sit on the porch seeping a cocktail and watching your kids swimming, kayaking, and what not. If you want to swim yourself though, you have to walk these couple hundred feet.

Nearest life is about 15 minutes away by car. You have Food Lion, Walmart, ABC and a bunch of local specialty stores available. It's a bit hard to find a local seafood, but still possible if you ask around. BTW house has a gas grill on the porch, which makes cooking seafood much easier.

Owners are very nice and helpful, and easy to deal with. We forgot our set of knives there, and they mailed them back to us at their own expense.

The only darkish spot is the laundry. Checkout time is noon, and you are required to wash, dry, and fold all the bedding and towels before you leave. Unfortunately, the washer and especially the dryer are dramatically undersized for this job, and there is no way you can finish with the laundry by noon - unless you get very creative with your planning and wash and dry all what you can the day before, and get lucky with weather so you can dry your laundry outside. There is the other way around it - the folks down the beach will offer you to take care of your laundry for $35.

Overall, we are very satisfied, we will certainly recommend this to a friend, and yes, we are considering this house for our next beach vacation. Thank you Mikey and Susan :)

Many thanks for your family visit to our beach home. We appreciate all of your feedback. Despite our rural setting, we will find local assistance for linen/towel laundering and add as an option to our guests. Thank you for the helpful tip to streamline the departure day for our guests !

We hope to see you next year.
