We wanted a laid back vacation with our daughters and our four grandchildren, and both the house and its location gave us exactly what we wanted. We lived in the general area for 12 years (20 years ago) and were easily able to entertain old friends at the house. There was a nice deck with a table and umbrella from which we watched spectacular tidal swings that provided ever changing views of the beach for the adults and new discoveries for the children every hour. (Kids ranged in age from 4 to 9.)
The house itself was clean, in good condition, well maintained (all the plumbing and water pressure worked perfectly as did the appliances and A/C) and well stocked with towels and basic necessities such as dishwashing soap, sponges, laundry needs, and garbage bags as well as plenty of dishes and basic kitchen utensils.
For outings, we took the train into NYC, went to Compo Beach in Westport, and some played golf at the nearby par three golf course, but mostly we enjoyed long walks on the beach during low tide collecting shells and watching sea gulls snatch crabs from the water, and swimming at high tide. We all thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation.
