When my family (my parents, sister and brother) made plans to spend our summer vacation together, along with our respective families, we knew it would be best if we had separate houses. We love each other but we knew that spending 2 weeks under the same roof would be too much!
This property was ideal because the main house allowed us to organize big family dinners, while the cottages enabled us to have quiet times. Plus, there was the location: directly on a private beach! With young kids, we could not have asked for more. As my sister said: we have a great schedule here "breakfast, beach, lunch, beach, dinner, ...".
We had views of the ocean from all the houses. Even from the cottages. And although there are many cottages surrounding the property, it was very quiet at night and we had a lot of privacy.
Finally, I really felt that the owner wanted to make sure our stay would be to our satisfaction.
