Thank you for providing such a spacious and well equipped house. Everyone in our big family party (14) was happy there and I heard zero complaints about anything. All the thought that had gone into making this a nice place for children was especially appreciated: the scooters, basketball hoop, swing set, beautiful back and side yards. It's an ideal place for multi-generation family reunions. This was probably the first time my three daughters (living in Amsterdam, Atlanta, and Boston) have been able to spend a whole week together for about 15 years. Whether it was sunny or rainy, the house just worked. We loved the big open kitchen, which is well arranged for several people to be working in it at once and the generous dining space off of it. Also, the double living rooms were great--you could be in the thick of things or quietly reading, whatever you preferred. Your descriptions of it were very accurate.
The house was clean when we arrived, and nothing needed fixing during our stay.
We explored the neighborhood on foot and on the bicycles we brought and it didn't take us long to discover the the great beach that you get to by turning left at the end of Deep Hole Road. It’s so close that you can just drop off the folks with the cooler and beach chairs (thanks for providing those) and then cycle back.
The only vacation houses Victor and I have rented before have been in France, since we have two now European daughters, and I'd say yours compared favorably with those. We'd certainly come back to you again if we decide to have an American family reunion.
Thanks again, Michael. Your historical antique house is a great place!
