Everything was perfect! The house is wonderful, very tastefully decorated, everything you need is there, from beach toys and towels, to kitchen, bathroom and laundry supplies. Thanks to Jim, life was made very easy and cosy for us during the whole stay. We were 4 adults and 3 children, the space was perfect so that each family had its own space and privacy.
The backyard is a little paradise where the kids could play safely on the deck and in the pool and where we could also have enjoy great evening around the pool and bbq.
We will definitely be back!
