Nice place to rent a home for the summer
If you’re willing to pay the price, this is an amazing place to visit during the summer. The houses are all beautiful and everyone is so friendly, even to the seasonal visitors, of which there are many. There is a strict rule though, that people can’t visit for the day, and the rule is enforced.
The area is expensive for rentals and the prices keep going up. If you book way in advance, you can rent a great place for the summer season, but don’t even think of driving around here! You’ll be walking here more than in Manhattan.
The Sugar Shack restaurant is a great hangout for kids/families. People play volleyball and baseball and other sports all around the neighborhood and on the beach. It really feels like another world.”
