This house was everything we could want and more!! My family of 17 traveled from all over the US for a reunion in mid May. We knew the weather could be questionable, so we wanted a house to fit all kinds of activities for all ages.
The kitchen was HUGE and equipped with every single appliance you could ask for (food processor, Kitchen Aid mixer, pop corn machine, toasters, toaster oven, grill, etc!!). With large grocery stores only minutes away, we never went out to eat...and we never wanted to. It was great to have a family dinner together (picture included) every day and to be able to graze for the other meals since everyone was either at the beach, in the hot tub, or swimming in the pool.
The pictures of the house posted online do NOT do this home justice. Every person who walked though the door immediately said, "WOW!!". We looked though the photos in anticipation of the trip, but everything is so much larger when you are there. There was more than enough room for all of us to stay comfortably. My parents are in their 80's and said they slept better there than at home. Everyone loved their accommodations.
Some days of our stay were hot enough to swim. The pool is crystal clear! When the sun went down, we just switched our location to the hot tub. It's large enough to seat 7. A bathroom and extra fridge (we called it our "drink fridge") are on the first floor and easy to access when you are lounging by the pool/hot tub.
With decks wrapping around the house, it's easy to watch the sun rise over the beach and set on the bay. Comfortable outdoor table seating and Adirondack chairs make it even easier to enjoy the beautiful views. The ocean is in clear view and only a few short steps from the house.
I've stayed in many house rentals before and so has my family. This house ranked top on our list because of location to the beach, cleanliness, size, vast amenities, comfort, and absolute value. It was way more fun and far more economical than renting a hotel or even a condo.
I've included some photos of our stay. We are already planning our next Chillaxin vacation! I guarantee that the only frowns you will see during your stay would be when you leave.
