This was our second stay at this house? It is a great house for our family with four children and a dog. They loved being able to swim right outside at the small cove. They swam, played with the dog (he swam too), and searched for sea glass.
We really didn't ever to leave our little spot, though we did go to the beach for serious waves.
It is a quick drive to town, though the distance would be walkable if the children were older.
