Like visiting your cool aunt who lives @ the beach
This house had everything we needed and more. If you accidentally left something at home, "Auntie Fishes" has one you can borrow - extra beach towels, bag, even boogie boards - Plus all the small things that made it more like a home ranging from books and board games to dust pans and plungers and a kitchen full of pans and dishes, both breakable and plastic sets for all ages. The owners are super responsive which is greatly appreciated as questions were bountiful in planning a trip for my family of 8. First impression was clean, and that's always a good way to start off a trip. We had toddlers, kids, teens and a senior, and there was plenty of space for us to convene for fun or sprawl out to separate rooms, decks or porches for serene time. I was nervous about distance going to beach w/ all our kids but after first trip was pleased to find it was an easy walk. The access we used did have a full flight of stairs down to the beach; our grandma just took it slow, but that might be something to consider depending on who's w/ you. I was especially grateful we brought our beach trolley to help haul our stuff. My only suggestions for improvement for this house would be to have a cart for the house, and it would've been nice to have a gas grill. There is a new and nice charcoal grill that we used once, but we usually came off the beach ravenous and impatient to wait for charcoal. The laundry appliances were dated but 100% functional and we used them daily. I did think the king bed was beyond firm, so when choosing rooms that might be important. Again, those are minor things. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we liked finding the little touches of their fish theme throughout. My kids loved the jetted tub, there was always plenty of hot water for one after another showering - even in the outside shower. Overall, we all felt comfortable in this house and we definitely would rent again.
