We arrived at the Salt Shaker and went from room to room saying "wow! Look at that!" The whole place was amazing, from the fully stocked kitchen, wagons and beach supplies, comfortable beds, theatre, huge table, great pool, short walk to the beach, it was just so much better than we imagined. I would hesitate to try another home as this one had everything. The only challenge would be for families with children under 3. There are a lot of stairs and it can be harder for that stage, however there were baby gates supplied so that helped a lot.
