This house is the best especially if you have young or not so young children. No spending hours loading up your beach bags, packing your cooler and traipsing to the beach, just step right outside your own back door and play and swim in the water off the back patio! We rented a paddle board and played on rafts all day long. We did make it over to the beach side once or twice (which was beautiful), but honestly, this house has the best location for a week of fun, splashing and swimming right in its own back yard!
Nice location, stores are in walking distance, my teens ride the trolley they loved the experience and it was free. We enjoyed the amazing views, porch and balcony, "the backyard ocean water" was wonderful for little kids, and if you like fishing this is the place for you. Owner was very helpful and very courteous all the time.
House was big enough for all of us, including kids.
I would recommend to the owner to get a few more pots and pans, we were a big group and there wasn't enough for all of us.
From the beginning, booking and staying at Bucks rental was by far the easiest experience I have ever had. Buck was quick to respond to inquiries and did a great job making sure me and my group of 15 were ready to vacation at the property. With the use of TripAdvisors rental protection it added an extra "no scam" feeling that made me know booking was protected.
Getting to the property was very easy and with a big group parking four cars and a motorcycle was no problem. Access to the house was simple and everything was ready for our stay. Plenty of towels, linens and pillows for everyone and with 6 queen beds, 1 king bed, 2 pullout couches and 2 futons, nobody was left without a place to sleep. The house included every kitchen item you would need, including blenders, dishes, etc. It had a great dishwasher, stove and oven and one fridge which filled up pretty quick, so consider bringing a few coolers for a big group. Bathroom space was never a problem with three showers and double sinks in the upstairs floor.
While the property was not located on the beach side, the view was breathtaking into the bay and from the upper deck and lower patio, everyone enjoyed every part of being outside, and the opportunity to use the grill and bbq was an extra bonus. Additionally, there is a lower sand section off the back patio and if the water had been warmer would have made for a great swimming location.
In terms of walking to places, most restaurants were around a mile away, but it was an easy walk, and public beach access is just up the street!
Overall we had a great experience at this property and it will most definitely be on my list of places to visit again if I get the opportunity. If you have doubts, get over it and talk to Buck, he made booking the place so easy, and was very flexible with our group.
Enjoy your stay!
