This home exceeded our expectations. The pictures and description didn't do it justice. It had the "WOW" factor. We had four in our party. My best friend of 30+ years and our husbands. The property is literally steps from the beach. The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. The home is huge and we all wished our children and their families could have joined us because there was a huge portion of the home we didn't use. We knew how big it was but we all wanted a beautiful place on the beach and boy did we get that and then some. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need so far as dinnerware, pots, pans, etc. a few pantry items as well. There were beach towels in a basket that was nice since it saved us from doing wash every day. The only problem I found was there were tiny ants that frequented the bathroom upstairs and the kitchen area near the window. To be honest, it didn't bother any of us since The home is literally so close to the water we expected to have some of Gods creatures visiting. If we had found them a nuisance we would have picked up some spray. When I say they were tiny, I mean they were TINY. The grounds are gorgeous and very well kept. Beautiful pond and flowers. The backyard itself felt like an Oasis. The bedroom upstairs with the lanai is beautiful. It has a huge window that shines the beautiful sunlight throughout the day. There aren't many houses along this beach so we felt very special and very lucky this home was available. One of the best things I loved was going to sleep and listening to the waves crashing and waking up and hearing the same thing. We kept the widows open to let the wonderful night breeze flow through. If you have children, they will have fun watching the little crabs dig dirt from there holes n the beach and scurry back into them. They are quick critters indeed. There was only one downfall and it had nothing to do with the property. We had wished there were more restaurant choices closer to the home. There was a few fast food places otherwise you had to drive about 30 min to get some place decent. However, it didn't bother any of us that would make us not want to stay there again. We are hoping we have the opportunity to rent this ocean front beach property again in the near future. It was truly a vacation in paradise. Mahalo, for sharing your beautiful home with folks like us who truly appreciate the beauty of the home and it's surroundings.
