We booked this specifically so that we could use the heated pool. Unfortunately, it was not turned on until the day we got there and never heated up enough too use it until the day we before we left. There were a few chairs by the pool but nothing to lay on so we bought some lounge chairs to lay in the sun. The house, itself, is nice and it is clean. Although it was very bare and a bit uninviting. There were very few basic amenities in it. Not even dish soap to wash up the few glasses we used. The bed was okay but the sheets didn’t stay on the mattress and we had to adjust them throughout the night. The biggest disappointment was the heated pool. The property manager was very nice but did say he was sorry that he should have turned it on before we arrived. In all, I know it is “off season” but we were expecting more based on others we looked at.
We loved that this place was within walking distance to the beach and we really enjoyed the private pool. The house had plenty of room for our family of 7 and we would definitely stay here again!
We thoroughly enjoyed the house. The accommodations were perfect for 2 families of 4. Luckily we both have kids the same age. So sharing the room with the bunk beds was fine for them. We enjoyed having a pool and hot tub at the house. We did have to call and find out how to turn the hot tub on and got a very quick answer. But once we did that, everything was very easy to use. We cleaned the pool after a few days and that was also very easy. We are pool owners too, so maybe that's what made it easier for us.
A few recommendations would be there needs to be a book to let the renters know what needs to be done when leaving. We swept (brought our own broom because we had read previous reviews), pulled all the sheets off and washed them (they were in the drier when we left), started washing all the towels (texted to let them know they were in there), wiped all the counters down, turned the thermostat up to 76*, closed all the blinds, turned off the lights, made sure the hot tub was off, took out all the trash & locked the doors. There are also no cleaning supplies. We brought those items as well. I texted the local person to let them know what all we had done and that we were gone.
Another recommendation would be the kitchen has very minimal cooking pots and pans. I would think if someone is renting a home, it would be assumed people may cook some. There is 1 frying pan, that has seen better days, and maybe 3 boilers. We made do and did everything we needed to. We rented for 5 days/4 not nights and cooked breakfast every morning and supper 2 nights. We did bring plates, cups, napkins, bowls, plastic ware, & seasonings. A few nicer cooking pans would be great to add.
There are a few minor things that need to be repaired, i.e.: the toilet paper holder in the half bath. But honestly that did not bother us either. We did end up buying toilet paper while we there. With 2 families of 4, well, you can imagine. :)
The washer and drier in the garage was a major bonus! I like to wash towel and suits after a full day at the beach and that made me very happy. They both worked very well & efficiently. They actually are making me reconsider a top loader for my home! We brought washing pods as well.
The neighbors are awesome too! We really enjoyed ourselves. The house is in a perfect location for everything you may need. I would give this home at least 4 stars and would definitely stay there again. All questions were answered very quickly and professionally. We enjoyed ourselves a lot and definitely made great memories!
Would recommend more of a family trip, instead of a group of friends. Very nice house, fit all 8 of us nicely. Only thing was that the outdoor area was not very well advertised. The pool was very murky and could not see the bottom, and hot tub did not heat up very well. The only way to get to the pool was through the lower bedroom, which made that lower bedroom hard to stay in. No cleaning supplies, only a mop with no bucket. Had a wonderful time, but the pool needed to be cleaned and with no cleaning supplies, it was hard to keep the place clean.
The house is bug free and clean. It was ok great location and the people were easy to deal with. The deposit was steep but you get it back if you don't break anything. Pool was nice to be heated and the hot tub is part of the heated pool. The only complaint was the beds were all squeaky.
I arrived much earlier than expected, but Sal, the manager, and the cleaning staff showed up very soon after they were called. The house is spacious, just right for my family. Clean and bright, furnishings and appliances in good order. Too cool at the beach for swimming, but the heated pool and bath satisfied the children. Close to some restaurants. Short walk to the beaches.
The house is located on a quiet street, close to everything! The beaches, bars, and restaurants are all within a 2 block radius. The house has 3 spacious bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer and 2 full baths. The weather wasn't great but we got to spend some great family time together. It will always hold a special place in our hearts..on the beach down the block, our son asked his girlfriend to marry him and she said "Yes"! The whole trip was wonderful!
