Awesome Week at this Home!
This house is amazing and extremely clean! We are a family of 20 and never felt cramped or crowded. There is an adorable enclosed porch we used as the 'reading room', plenty of seating for everyone both inside and out. The deck is awesome with plenty of seats and a large table. Cute bistro tables in front of the house - another get away when you want quiet. The screen house was wonderful! It was at least 10 degrees cooler and also impeccable. The bedrooms were fine and the huge TV was awesome!
The only disappointment for us was the private beach area. There is no real beach sand area for spreading a blanket. However, you can walk a few minutes to a better beach area. Great yard! We set up a volleyball net and the old folks could watch either from the deck or in lawn chairs on the ground. There was plenty of room in the kitchen to prepare meals despite the fact the cabinets were all filled, so basically not available for storing supplies. We used the counters and tops of the washer/dryer. We did bring large coolers we left on the deck because we knew one fridge wouldn't hold all our perishables (and the beer, of course!).
This was the best house we have rented. No unpleasant surprises. I would highly recommend it as long as you aren't looking to lie at the beach. The owners respond quickly to all questions via email and made the whole process pleasant. Took off one star because we thought the private beach would be better than it was.

There is one hundred foot frontage of sandy beach with some pebbles, some shells, but certainly enough room for a blanket, so the review mention of not being able to spread a blanket was confusing. We also have a deck right on the beach with plenty of room for sunbathing, eating, conversation, etc. Anyone interested can Google Earth Kingston Bay to get a better idea of the area, if that is helpful, or they can come by and see the beach for themselves... The cabinets were not all filled. There was a small amount of canned goods on the bottom shelves. Oh well!
