The views are amazing. The private walkway with built in seating is a great place to hang out. The king beds with the memory foam mattresses were sooo comfy.

Loved the house -location, space, was great. plenty of space for our family of 19!

Brenda 6/28/2015

The location is fantastic. The inside wonderful and well kept and the amenities were great ( could use a few more pots and pans though). The beach area where it is located is one of the best areas in Whalehead. Easy access to the house itself and the elevator was a great help in luggage transfer. Pool is a little small but was nice and with the beach just a few steps from the back of the house a huge pool is not necessary.Inside the house has huge rooms and bathrooms. How much did with like the place? The answer is we pre reserved without hesitation for next year. We recommend this house and the price is right for its location and everything it has.

Bob 5/31/2015

It is a great home with great views and the movie room was great when it rained, would definitely rent it again for a week
