What an amazing place. The garden was more beautiful than I imagined after reading other reviews. Chuck and Kristy are wonderful. They do not intrude on vacation, but are around if you need them. They provided every kitchen item I could imagine, including glassware, serving pieces, foil,..., and wagons to take the umbrellas, beach towels, coolers, chairs, current magazines, they provide for the beach. The washers and dryers and the grill and hot tub were a bonus. The beach is not crowded in this area. If you are handicapped, the access to the beach is not easy, but worth it. Just be prepared. The sand is like powder, so you sink into it more than other beaches I've visited. It is beautiful. The location is across the street from the beach, and mid way between the bridge and Bean Point. I cannot wait to go back.
