About this listing
Ours is a bright and sunny upside down house, with distant harbor views and lots of unique artwork. Just three miles from town, it affords privacy and a quiet due to its frontage of trees. The wonderful bike path is just across the road.
The upstairs has a deck with a gas grill and seating with views of the sunsets and harbor. The first floor has a deck with a porch swing. There is a living room/dining room that opens to the kitchen. A play loft is above the kitchen and is accessed by a ladder. A carousel horse looks down over the great room from the loft!
There are entrances from the front door, most of the bedrooms, as well as from the decks.
Interaction with guests
There is a caretaker whose name and phone number are left for guests should they have questions or concerns during their stay. All information is in the Renters' Handbook, left out for each group of visitors.
As mentioned, we are on the main road, but it's a quiet spot since we're out of town.
The bike path is across the street, and the bus stops just a few houses away.
No sidewalks are in this area. It's more country-like.
We are on the bike path and bus route. Cabs are easy to find, too. However, I cannot imagine being out of town without a car if you are staying for a length of time. The grocery store is probably two miles away and town is three. Getting to the beaches is a ten minute car ride. We've rented the house out for the past five years and everyone has brought a car.
Other things to note
The house is fully furnished and includes a very well equipped kitchen (Cuisinart, mixer, microwave, double ovens etc). Washer and dryer are on the first floor. Guests will find sheets, towels, blankets, beach chairs, a cooler, and beach towels. We are on a well, so the tap water is cold and delicious.
We rent by the week from Saturday to Saturday.
Twelve guests are the limit unless cribs are brought in for babies. We don't allow smoking and do not want pets. We ask that the house not be left unlocked. There is a lock box out front so multiple guests don't need keys. The code is given out before people arrive.
