The house was the perfect size for our huge group. It was cleaned nicely for check in around 5:00. We had no issues checking in or out. We really enjoyed the private pool as well! The beach is a little further than 250 yards like the description says. You can enter the beach at the end of Shirah Street but you have to walk another 2 blocks to the east before you actually get to the public beach area. So definitely bring a wagon and we suggest walking down the sidewalk the two blocks and entering the beach across from the cafe. And go set up your tents or canopies VERY early! We set ours up around 7:00am every morning and still never got the front row by the water. We unfortunately had 2 vehicles broken into one night. They were both locked but they broke in through the back windows somehow. Two guns were stolen. We never saw anyone suspicious around the area and all the neighbors were so friendly! It was just bad luck! I don't think it is a bad reflection of the area or the house in any way! We really enjoyed our week and we were all so sad to leave! The house feels like a home!
