This is a great house in a good location. The little kids beach is about a block away and it is mainly a cove for small sailboats. The walk there only takes about 5 minutes but it's on a slightly busy street without a sidewalk. Once you get there, the water was very warm (Aug) and there were tons of critters to see! Our girls had a blast collecting crabs, watching the schools of fish, looking for blue crabs, etc. It was perfect for a final trip to the beach before dinner. The house is about 10 min drive from grocery stores, CVS, shopping, etc. There's an amazing new bakery 3 miles away called Aime that has fantastic croissants/pastries and opens early. Loop Beach is about a mile away, but tends to have a number of pebbles, so we ended up driving 20 min to South Cape Beach, which has a more traditional soft-sand. We loved it and went back the next day. The house was perfect for our multi-generational group. They had great toys for the little kids (ages 1-6). The kitchen has everything you need to cook, which was very helpful, and the showers all have soap/shampoo/etc. Margy and Rick are very attentive and communicative. They are definitely the most "present" hosts that we've stayed with. They came to greet our group in person on the arrival day, and came to see us again 30 min before checkout. They also planned to come by sometime mid-week to collect garbage. In short, you'll see them around and hear from them. That being said, they're very friendly and hospitable. On a final note, we ordered boiled lobster take out from Roche Brothers and it was perfect.
