East or West End of Goose Rocks Beach??

We are looking to rent a house at the end of June at Goose Rocks Beach. Last September we stayed at the east end and loved it - lots of hermit crabs, small tidal pools, sand bar when the tide went out as well as Nice, wide beach and not too many people at that time. We do have young kids so it's nice for them to have some others to play with, but not looking for an insanely crowded beach where it's overwhelming to keep an eye on your kids in the crowd either. Considering a rental house on the west end this year. I've heard it's less crowded but does that mean desolate at the end of June or there will still be other kids to play with? Is the beach small at this end of there is still plenty of space to play even when the tide is in? Also are there still tidal pools, hermit crabs etc down at that end? Huge hit with our little boys :) Would love to hear pros/cons of staying at the east vs. west end of Goose Rocks. Thanks!

We have a house at the west end of the beach, so we are partial to it, but we rented for many years at the east end so know the fun tidal pools you are mention. The west end had huge tidal pools last year and also has the feature of super low tide and being able to walk about a half mile out into Goose Fair Bay. Our house, which we rent, is very family friendly. Lots of room for everyone with separate living room, dining room and tv room plus game area, three bedrooms and 1.5 baths. Very light and airy. One deck and one screened porch. Our yard is grassy and has a wooden picket fence and we have a hot shower in the back. Take a look. sanddollarrealestate.com/vacation-rentals/…

We rent through a realtor but I'd be happy to answer your questions. Our kids are grown now and we know it's a house that welcomes little ones.

Enjoy. Ellen Nichols
