Jan's property is such a gem, that I almost want to keep it a secret. How can you go wrong being beachfront on Chesterman's? The deck is huge, and high enough that you can sit and watch waves rolling in. The house is cozy and well equipped, and the additional guesthouse was a wonderful bonus of extra space. (It was super cute too.) At first we thought having the hot tub enclosed would be a bit of a bummer, but after our first soak, it turned out we enjoyed the protection from the elements.
We were a group of 8, and were totally comfortable, but you definitely wouldn't want more than that. To keep the living room free for lounging, we had two people on the floor in the guest house. It was tight, but worked great, because we weren't hanging out in there anyway.
Jan was always very quick with communication, and when we needed assistance with a couple of things, they were resolved within minutes. He also had a bottle of wine there to greet us, which was a lovely touch.
The only thing I would change would be to have more deck chairs, but if that's the worst I can say, you know it's got to be pretty great. So great that we are already talking about coming back next year.
Thank you, Jan!
