We are very sorry that you found the house a little run down post hurricanes and regret any inconvenience or disappointment you may have experienced. We are most grateful for feedback from our guests. Please be so kind as to let us know what you found lacking, so that we may amend the situation as quickly as possible.
You are quite right that there are are many much more beautiful beaches on the island. While we do not have the most beautiful beach (nor do we so advertise) we do have one of the most private, which many of our guests appreciate.
As to the suitability for children, this will depend on the preferences of each family. While some parents might not find the situation ideal, over the years many families with children of all ages (from infants and toddlers through teens) have stayed with us and loved the experience. We suggest that anyone with questions about suitability for children, see the review posted on this site by Jennifer, who stayed with us last February (of course, other reviews by parents and children are available upon request). We are happy to answer any questions parents may have regarding the features of the home and property so they may use their best judgment.
Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to share your thoughts. We endeavor to do everything possible to make everyone's stay with us enjoyable, and regret any flaws you may have experienced.
