“Nice location, not the best house”
Reviewed 20 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

The location of this house is great; but, otherwise, the home itself is run down and was not kept up very well. The back door to the beach was stripped and we had to learn how to pull and turn the knob to get in and out. I assumed that since the price was so much lower than some of the other beachfront rentals that we could expect it to be below par. However, we did call on day four of our vacation as the issues mounted. They came and replaced the doorknob same day and fixed some other issues we had with toilets running and not flushing etc., ants, and dirt in the pool. Yes, they did address our problems once we brought them to their attention. However, it was apparent that whoever inspects these homes after rental is not doing their job very well. The stripped doorknob had to be that way for quite some time. The exterior needs some help with rusted lights and construction type "garbage" lying about. There were numerous cigarette butts out front in the sand and makeshift ashtrays on tables out back that were filled with butts. We really couldn't go out back without suffering the overwhelming smell of smoke. It would probably be a really cute house if kept up better. They layout was fine and the beachfront location was definitely a plus; but, honestly it was a little more run down than we expected. Though I admit I didn't have huge expecations given the price difference on some other houses we considered. So, if you are ok with run down, then it would meet your needs. If you aren't, then spend a little more and probably get a nicer home. I won't be back to this one.

We try our best to address guest issues as soon as they are reported to us and we’re glad you found this to be the case. Again, we apologize that our inspection teams let you down.
