I have been lucky enough to be a guest of friends staying at the Seaside Rendezvous. Every rental has it's positives and negatives. This is a nice home with lots of room to roam. The 4 star rating is based on the 5 star for the positives and 2-1/2 stars for the negatives.

Let's get the bad out of the way. 2-1/2 stars for the bad. Seaside Rendezvous is comfortable, but in need of TLC. Let's face it, things break or wear out and need attention. It's normal wear and tear. E.g.: window screens, glassware, small and large appliances, indoor furnishings, outdoor lounge chairs, the list is not long, but important for comfort, for your home away from home. This house is an upper end rental, that is said to have been decorated by an interior designer. It probably was, in the 70's. The upholstered furniture and throw pillows need a deep cleaning, then add slip covers. The carpeting in a couple of the bedrooms are stained and badly worn. Valance brackets are visible in one bedroom, but no valances. One 40"ish flat screen TV, not HD, is set into the oversized entertainment unit, (lacking entertainment value) located in the living room. The TVs that were in the guest bedrooms broke down and found their way into the garage, but, they were never replaced. There is an old tube tv in master bedroom and one in the lower level of home, along with a stereo unit which would be appreciated on the main level.
The interior is in need of a paint job. Not just a touch up with an off color paint. Forget the comforters and bedspreads (that are not laundered between renters) just add simple wall color and wall hangings to brighten the bedrooms and use easily laundered white bedding.
Now for the good. Five stars for the good. Location, across from a beach access, located in a residential area, on a great stretch of beach. Screened in, heated pool, hot tub (when operable), 4 bedrooms with comfortable beds, 3 baths, kitchen equipped with most everything you need, screened lanai with large table and 6 chairs for dining. Towels and linens are plentiful. Water toys for the kids as well as misc. bikes and scooters. The landscaping creates a lush privacy barrier between neighbors. The outdoor shower is handy to clean up after beach time. Extra, lower level refrigerator is handy for a month long stay, without having to shop for groceries each week, allowing you to have fun with friends and family at the house or the beach. YOU'RE on vacation!
Both the rental agency and Brian the homeowners handyman provide fast friendly service.
