Perfect for and Extended Family!

  • 5 of 5

Two sets of grandparents (PA & MD)parents and 5 year old son (CO) a set of aunts (TX) and one uncle (PA) - plenty of room for all without using the lower level space. Well equipped kitchen, plenty of seating for family dinners, tons of books, clean and maintained. Not fancy, but a few steps to a wide, uncrowded and guarded beach. We had a wonderful stay!

  • 2 of 5

i was very disappionted with this property the was a very offensive smell as soon as we opened the doors and in one of the rooms there was water damage on the walls and the whole house smelled like mildew we had to clean up with 409 spray and also buy airfreshners to make it a little better the freezer and fridge had rust all over which i think is not good since food is stored in there.spider webs where all over the house but i did like itcause it had a lot of seating area and 15 of us were very comfortable so thanks
