We are a family of 5, children aged 10, 14 and 16, and our grandparents joined us for the week too. The house is clean, and well stocked with everything you need. The view is absolutely stunning!!! There is a private walkway down to the beach. The beach walkway and the back yard is shared with the 1 bedroom rental. There was a couple renting it for part of the week, but we did not have a problem with the shared area. The beach is beautiful and very private...It's like having your very own beach!!! Every morning there are new turtle tracks and nests right outside your door. At night, you can go down to the beach and watch sea turtles come out of the ocean and nest. It's amazing! We even saw a few baby hatchlings make their way into the sea. Overall, a great house and we would definitely recommend it for you vacation getaway!

Small but more than adequate for 2 people and you are right on the beach which is beautiful and very quiet/unpopulated. We've been out every night to see nesting seaturtles. Really great place for nature. Thoroughly recommend!!
