This home was so clean and well-stocked. We had everything we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving meal. We loved that that the beach was so close. We had a family of 18 and the two homes allowed us to be together around the centralized pool, but have separate time when needed. We were comfortable and the one level front house was perfect for my elderly dad who can't manage steps. We will definitely return again and again!
