We loved that the beach was so close, and we could walk back and forth many times during the day. We watched the sun rise on a few occasions, and spent countless hours walking the beach. The pretty, quiet, cool secluded back yard was a bonus that was not expected. It is close to everything, and there are quite a few trolley stops near the property. The kitchen was well stocked for just about anything that you needed. The cool night breezes were fabulous! There were tons of books, and many games to play, and we even completed a 1000 piece puzzle during the week.
