We booked this "blind," having never stayed there before or even knowing anyone who had.
Turned out to be a great choice.
Location - excellent. Walking distance to (Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket) ferries and many good restaurants. Has its own beach (albeit, not among the best on the Cape). Minutes from several good beaches (i.e. Craigsville) and all of the shops and restaurants in Hyannis. And centrally located on the Cape (about same distance east to Falmouth or west to Chatham).
Very nice pool staffed by a lifeguard (great to just send the kids on their own).
Most units have three decks, either overlooking Lewis Bay, or the pool, which are very relaxing.
Very quiet development and (most importantly to us), the walls seem to have been thick enough that nobody complained about my crazy kids yelling all the time (nor did I hear anyone else's crazy kids yelling)!
Garbage pick-up twice a day.
Price (compared to hotels and/or area resorts) was very reasonable, and we had TONS of room for our family of 6 (I'm sure we would have been on top of each other in a hotel).
Would DEFINITELY rent again.
