I did something maybe a little crazy

Well not really crazy, but daring for me. So I have gone to this meetup group for singles over 50 and there is a guy R who is the organizer. I have seen him more over the summer cause we did some outdoor concerts and some dancing in a bar, so I have seen him 4x this summer. The last time we were together, we went to an outdoor concert & then a group went out to eat and we mentioned that we both had next week off. He said something about renting a place near the beach and "maybe you would like to come down." I said that would be nice, but didn't hear anything more so I wasn't sure whether he meant it. I also told him I might be going to visit my DD. Well as it turns out I'm not going to visit my DD, don't really have anything to do, so I just decided to email him to ask if he was still on vacation this week. If he said yes, I was going to ask him if he wanted to go to the beach or do something.
so he writes back & says that "we" are going to rent this beach house and would I like to come down for "one, two or three days." lol So I wrote back that I needed details and by the way, who is "we?" So the other definite person (who I assumed it would be) is a woman I know (and luckily like) who is also I lawyer. That would make it more comfortable that I know someone else. And then there are some other people who might or might not come. I asked him about the cost and he said "I invited you as a guest" but if you want to stay the whole week or several days, we could get a bigger place, etc., so I actually decided I am going to go for a few days. I figure I like both of them, he sent me the listing for the house, which looks very cute, it's right near the beach and I need some time to relax and it's only about an hour from my house and will be very cheap. But it is kind of crazy to decide to go away with people I don't know that well, but whatever...we're middle aged professional people, not 25 yr old partiers.
So either I am going to learn that I really like this guy as we get to know each other better...or not! lol And I'm not totally sure if there is a relationship between R & the woman but I am thinking not. If they were a couple, why not just go on a romantic vacation together instead of inviting people--and him inviting a woman would make it really odd. I do know the house has 3 BRs so I guess I'll just wait & see if they go to separate BRs then. Of the times we have been together, I haven't seen any romantic type gestures going on--no hand holding or anything like that.
