We visited Ocean View three years ago and loved it so much that we returned for another week. Room three is still lovely - clean, well decorated, with a large bed and bath tub. Hosts have thought to provide everything for a comfortable stay.
On the downside, personal touches have disappeared. When you arrive, you find a note tacked to the door welcoming you (same for another guest arriving same day). You would think that a returning one week guest would merit a short welcome, sometime during the first day especially since we had indicated our arrival time. Outside of the 30 seconds taken each day to deliver your breakfast, there is no other contact whatsoever. To be fair some people may appreciate this
The wi-fi is spotty at best (even worse than 3 years ago!!). Not good enough to hear that BT could not fix it and they have scheduled a return in 12 weeks, especially when everyone has wi-fi now.
Finally, getting an automatic email 3 days before arrival pointing out that full payment is due before arrival is not appreciated - taking a deposit of 20% months in advance should be enough until the first morning. Besides, there was no one to pay it to on arrival!! We did get an automatic form e-mail after departing - the letter was impersonal and incorrect but, hey, at least the computer thanked us. Looks like owners are using Ebay too much as a role model.
