5/5 Excellent

Clean and spacious spot, perfect for a large gathering!
I rented this property during Memorial Day weekend for a wedding that was taking place in the area. The price was right, the location was perfect, and the house was incredibly spacious. As a testament to what a comfortable living situation this house offered us: it ended up pouring the entire weekend, ruining our beach plans, and we still had a fantastic time. The kitchen and it’s provided supplies were perfect for cooking up large meals for us all to enjoy together, the house was warmly decorated, what more! And to top it off, the house has a little bit of history behind it - a New York governor once lived here! One week out and we are all still raving about what a great weekend we had. This was my first VRBO experience, and I’d recommend it for get-togethers like ours.
