Highly recommend

5 of 5
We are a big family of 20 and this was one of the few places I was able to find that would accommodate everyone. The distance to the beach and games room was a real winner for the kids and the house itself was well equipped for preparing meals. Donna and Mark were extremely helpful throughout and I would highly recommend staying here with a big group.
