If you are looking for a place to stay that is away from the downtown area with an almost private (public) beach area, this is the place to stay. We stayed at this property during spring break & our part of the beach was pretty much wide open. We saw the beach down by the times square area & it was packed. We had none of that. The only way we would have known that it was spring break was by the line of traffic that slowly crept by the front of the house in the early evening. The house was a little bit older, but it was perfect & had everything that we could have ever needed.
