This home is absolutely lovely and the location can’t be beat. It’s a homey space right on the water with a quiet beach behind it. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. The space is charming and eclectic. The main living room with its dramatic view was a stunning space to spend afternoons and evenings with my family. My kids and their kids all came to this house. It says it sleeps 10, but with 7 adults and 3 kids (1 3 year old and 2 babies), it was quite full. The pull-out couch was quite comfy and spacious and the upstairs bedrooms were airy, well-lit, and had comfortable beds with nice quality bedding and a “lighthouse” feel with the white walls and ocean nearby.
My family happened to be at the house during the first warm weekend of this year, and that meant some bugs came out of hibernation, but the hosts helped us locate their bug spray to use, and they let us know they generally keep ahead of these kinds of things with the help of an exterminator. The warm weather also meant lovely time spent in the water for my family, and a very beautiful weekend we’re sure to always remember.
The library room is amazing. It has what I think are all the best books, and even books I’d never read before. It’s a place to tuck yourself in and get lost between some pages.
It’s clear to see this place is cared for and the hosts take pride in putting their best foot forward to their guests. It’s an older home with lots of that kitschy old-home-charm. Skylights, squeaky floors, a fireplace, large windows, fun little nooks and spaces, and a little sunroom RIGHT on the water.
We had a slight miscommunication with the hosts over the use of the sea kayaks. We had been greatly looking forward to kayaking in the little bay area, and the listing made it sound like this was a very realistic thing to look forward to. Despite my son-in-law being an experienced sea kayaker, we were met with lots of impediments to using the kayaks and ended up not using them.
We had the pleasure of meeting one of the hosts on our last day, and he was so warm and kind to us. Thank you for hosting us at this AirBnb! It was a weekend filled with beautiful memories!
