Lovely deck space, great for big families!

  • 4 of 5

This house was simply lovely and gave space for large families. The decks gave lots of room; some with shade some without, some screened, some not. Beds slept well. We made use of the loft futton as well as the sofa couch. Walking distance to dock or beach was easy. Only thing is we would have liked a view.

Rainbows End was as advertised-- a great home

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 little girls and 4 adults for all of the week plus an additional 3 adults to 3 days. Home was very roomy and plenty of room for all. Decks and porches were very nice and made to home feel much larger. Easy to get to and from the ocean with our group and the beach was terrific with private access and not too crowded. Lots of windows gives great views. Outside shower could use a light. We would definitely rent this home again.
