Two weeks of peace and quiet
We spent two weeks here; the first week with my brother's family and the second week with just us. For the first week, we had plenty of space with the cousins all enjoying sharing the room with the bunk beds and the two twins. The kitchen is compact, but we made it work for our meals while also grilling most nights.
The best part of the house is the location. It really can't be beat. You can hear the waves from the lovely yard or one of two porches.There is nice privacy and the bird watching was fantastic. The walk to the private association beach is very short and it was never crowded. As most of the other reviews said- water shoes are a must as it is very rocky near the shoreline, but there was plenty of sand for the kids to play in near the dunes. It was also a treat to bring wood down to the beach and make a fire for smores one night.
The lighting in the house was gorgeous and you have water views from one bedroom upstairs and a stunning view of the stars and moon from the other upstairs bedroom. Overall, it was a great stay and the owners were responsive with any requests. There was plenty of beach chairs, a beach cart and the kids loved the outdoor shower.

We are so glad you had a peaceful and refreshing stay at Helen's Dream House. Peter's mom, Helen, loved to watch the birds, thus the bird baths. It is nice to hear the ocean at night! Thank you for the excellent review too.
