We stayed here for 3 nights and wished we could stay a little longer. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. The price was well within my budget. We will definitely stay here again.
Everything was great. Owners were very easy to work with, parking under the house which is a huge plus and steps from the beach. We had a great time and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will definitely book again!
I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed this house! It was spotless upon arrival. The decorations looked like a Pinterest page! The kitchen is very well stocked. It has every utensil you can think of. Knowing this, I see a shrimp/crab boil happening on our next stay. Make sure to bring trash bags and extra laundry detergent. No need to bring towels. There are more than enough provided. It has a completely unobstructed view of the beach. The walk to the water is very short. There is a well-worn path through the dunes. Look for snakes! There is a beach access road one block over if you don't want to lug everything to the water. Very little seaweed on the beach right now. Claim your real estate early in the day. The weather was perfect and it was Mother's Day weekend when we stayed. The beach filled up quickly. Terri was very nice! She touched base with us after check-in. We did not have any reason to reach out to her after other than to say thanks. We are regulars in Surfside. This is by far the most reasonable and nicest property we have stayed in. We will definitely be staying here again. Make sure to grab a burger at the Jetty Shack during your stay. Best burger in my book!
This is a beautiful, well-planned house just steps from the sand. For me, the best part (outside of being so close to the beach) was the outdoor shower with warm water under the house (all the houses are on stilts). The four bedrooms are tucked away down a hallway, so babies could nap and adults could sleep in without being bothered! My mattress was a little uncomfortable, but I tend to prefer a firm mattress, and everyone else thought their beds were fine. Tip: We had small children with us and there were lots of beautiful beach-themed knick-knacks, so we took pictures of their locations, put them up and away during our stay so they wouldn't get broken, and then put them back before we checked out. The kids loved all the sand toys and enjoyed hanging out on the deck. Terri (the owner) was incredibly responsive, kind, informative, and accommodating.
The outdoor shower and picnic table in the shade under the house, as well as the huge bin of sand toys and fast, easy access to the wide, flat, un-crowded beach, made it a perfect place to take our young kids. When we went in May, the ocean was warm and shallow, only coming up to our knees for several yards out from the water’s edge, and the waves were gentle, which was perfect for our young non-swimmers. The house is not super-new or high-end, but was clean and comfortable and has plenty of space. The owner was flexible and very responsive to questions. I highly recommend this place to anyone taking a vacation with kids!
This is not a family friendly or clean property. It smelled of cigarette smoke when we entered and my 4 year old found confetti in the shape of male private parts within minutes of arriving. After several lies the owner admitted there was a renter a few weeks (later she said months) ago that had a party and smoked inside. She said it was thoroughly cleaned after but if that’s true how did my 4 year old find the confetti and why did it still smell so badly (this is coming from someone with a horrible sense of smell). Also, this is listed as non smoking but we found a used ash tray on the property. The comforters and pillows smelled of mildew and/or urine. After spending 4 hours trying to air out/clean the property and salvage our weekend getaway, we came to the conclusion we could not stay there. My husband and I and our 2 daughters could barely stomach being inside. I would have rather stayed at a motel. This house needs a deep cleaning and completely new bedding. We have rented several houses over the years and have never had a bad experience or complaint. The owner insisted nothing was wrong and would only refund me a quarter of what I paid, despite telling me before we left that she would refund me all but one nights stay. I have filed a formal complaint with HomeAway since the owner is not working with me at all. She has blatantly lied to me several times and does not think I had any reason to leave. Any person in their right mind would leave after smelling what we did. This house is absolutely disgusting and the owner is completely unhelpful. Please save yourself the trouble and money and find another house to stay at. I wish someone would have posted an honest review before we booked this rental.
This spacious beach house was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and we had everything we needed, including an ocean view! We loved the charming floor plan and decor. It was the perfect getaway for my husband and me to enjoy some rest and relaxation. The main tv had 100 alphabetized, recorded movies for our selection, and my husband enjoyed reading one of the many books that were available. Our dear friends stayed with us on our third night, and we enjoyed playing games around the dining table and eating popcorn. This cozy beach house made us feel right at home, and we highly recommend it!
