We rented this beach house for a week for our family of 10, including 4 children. The house was 3 levels with lots of steps so grandparents stayed on the main level (2nd level) where the kitchen was to avoid too much stair climbing. We did have a toddler with us and the house had one gate for the stairs but you really need two. The house was spacious and everyone was able to have privacy when they wanted. The house isn't on the beach but it's a short walk down a gravel path to the wooden walkway leading to the beach. Our balcony overlooked the pool and they're were several rocking chairs which was very nice. There were a few minor repairs that should be done but nothing major. The living room sofa and the kitchen table should be replaced soon as they're showing a lot of wear. All told, we we're very happy during our week at this house and would return again.
