Adventure and Serenity

5 of 5
It is a long,bumpy ride to arrive, but once you do ahhhhhhhhh. Peace, quiet, huge expanses of beach that feel almost private, horses at your doorstep, views galore, dolphins, pelicans, I could go on and on. My parents, three children, one old golden retriever and I stayed for two weeks, and we only went into town twice. The house and surrounding area had more than enough to entertain us. The kids loved the tide pools and the horses and great kite-flying. The dog loved the freedom. And we "older" folks just loved the relaxing and being away from it all. The property is very accurately listed, nicely clean and well-maintained, and the owners were very accomodating. I would definitely recommend this property as long as you are willing to make the long, sometimes harrowing beach drive - it is not for the faint of heart! Also, we recommend the lighthouse climb. Again, a bit terrifying, but quite the experience.
