This is a large home with excellent facilities to feed and entertain a large group. The house sits just a short walk from the beach (you cannot see the water from the house). The main floor has a great open plan with a large kitchen and dining/living area. The two stoves, two microwaves, two refrigerators and two dishwashers along with tremendous counter space make it ideal for feeding a group. There is a small deck with a small charcoal grill, if you prefer to cook that way (we did).
We traveled with a group of 14, and the house easily accommodated them. The bedroom layout is a little odd, with two very large suites upstairs and the remainder of the beds in a lower level bedroom that can be split in two with a sliding privacy wall. The lower area is basically a bunk house of sorts. This set up is perfect for two families, where the adult couples each have a room upstairs and the kids all bunk together. We had multiple families, so it was a little crowded on the lower level. We were able to partially make up for that by one couple sleeping on the main floor on a futon. There are actually two futons on the main floor, but one had a missing slat that precluded using it as a comfortable bed. That did, however, allow us to double up the futon mattresses on the remaining bed. Water pressure is great throughout the house, and the toilets really flush well--no worries there. Plenty of towels and bedding were supplied.
Large windows throughout the house provide lighting to make up for the relative lack of indoor lighting, and give the already large house an even bigger feeling. They also provide great ventilation. When we were there, the house appeared to be under partial renovation, but it did not detract from our enjoyment of the place.
