Our family of 11, including our 4 young grandchildren, had a wonderful time. The house was spacious. The two upstairs bedrooms were perfect for the four children and their parents. When the children went to sleep, the rest of us could comfortably visit in one of several downstairs areas without disturbing them. Our entire group walked to the sandy beach and playground on the bay side, as well as the wide sandy beach on the ocean side. Despite this proximity, the area surrounding the house is quiet and restful. All this made for a great family shore vacation!
