The perfect summer getaway!
This is an absolutely perfect home away from home - I stayed for four days with my husband and another couple, and we could not have been more comfortable. The location is great. An easy ten minute walk from the beach (a fact we took advantage of regularly, made easier by the healthy stock of beach towels that were provided), from boating, and from a bunch of wonderful restaurants. Harrison is lovely, and staying here meant everything was easily accessible - but we didn't have to deal with the crowds and noise of staying out at the resort. Being out in the quiet suburbs was much more relaxing. I have to say, I'm in love with the kitchen. It's huge, and it had everything we needed even for some of our more esoteric late-night cooking ideas. We could have put together a pretty nice dinner party, but to be honest, we spent most of our evenings curled up in the big, comfy couches watching netflix. Even in the absolute heat of summer, the house stayed cool and comfortable. There's an AC in the master bedrooms and fans in the others, so sleeping through heat-wave nights was no problem. The hot tub was also a surprisingly delightful way to beat the heat. Speaking of the (ridiculously large) hot tub, it's a great place for watching the stars - we were here at just the right time for the persied meteor showers and I've never had a clearer view of them in civilization. Everything was spotless when we arrived, and our hosts had left us with a charming welcome package (thanks, Lori!). The furniture is all very comfortable, inside and out, and while everything looks properly rustic, it's all sturdy and new. After we left, we didn't have a single complaint, but the owners were more than happy to take our feedback and a couple small suggestions we had for them. They're a delight to coordinate with, and they made sure we had everything we needed. All in all, I'm more than satisfied with our stay. I'm sure we'll be back next year - I can't imagine why we'd want to stay anywhere else when we could stay in such a comfortable, well-appointed home.
