Seven people in my family stayed on this great home in August. We had a wonderful time. Everyone loved the house. It had so much space for people to find their own chairs to read (which is what most of us did!). My favorite was the small screened in porch in the front. I enjoyed sitting on the rocking chair at the end of the day with a cold drink relaxing. The kitchen was also outstanding. There was a gorgeous new gas stove, a butcher block island, and a huge pantry for storage. It made me feel like a professional cook. The back yard was very spacious with plenty of room for the kids and dog to play. The only thing I was missing was a garage or shed to store bikes and beach stuff away from the rain.
We really liked the town of Ocean Park with its simplicity and friendly, small town feel. Almost everyday we walked to the soda fountain to get ice cream cones. It was a short (maybe 8 min) walk to the beach, which was beautiful. There was a neat tidal river nearby that we body surfed in everyday with the kids when the tide was right.
Someone in my group broke the knob off the oven. I felt horrible. I texted the owner to let her know, and she reacted to the situation very calmly. I was impressed with that, especially since the stove was only a couple months old and very expensive.
We hope to stay again next summer, and would like to make it a regular vacation place to have a family gathering.
