Giant 120-year-old house with lots of rooms and character

On the plus side: bright 2nd floor sunroom for meeting or talking, tons of rooms to explore, plenty of rooms for smaller meetings, all the modern conveniences including a "speed cook" oven, great location near restaurants and the beach, historical significance of the house, central A/C with digital thermostats throughout the house, plenty of beds for larger groups, walk to DiBella's Italian Restaurant, bright interiors with large windows

On the minus side: spotty WiFi on 2nd floor, some housecleaning issues (e.g., return air vents were covered in dust), quirky floor plan which lacks a big room for "hanging out" or having a larger group meeting, grounds have been neglected

The property looks just like the pictures. We walked to beach everyday, the family enjoyed the stay, and the staff was extremely nice. We had an issue with one of the air condition units but the owner stayed until it was fixed. We were less than fifteen minutes to everything.

Reviewer Comments:
Our stay here was horrible! We could not enjoy our vacation. First the ANTS was horrible we could not cook at the house because it was not clean the ANTS took over which caused us to spend extra money eating out everyday. As well as the house had very hot rooms that was hard to sleep in because you were sweating. We would never rent the house again!

Reviewer Comments:
The house was so dirty that we had to call the office and let them know that bath tubs and there were dust all over and the floors haven't been cleaned for weeks. We had a baby crawling in the house and we had to clean. It is not fair that we were charged $575 for cleaning and extras and the house was not cleaned.

Reviewer Comments:
This house is gorgeous. As a couple who loves historic homes with character and interesting stories, this was the perfect place to surprise my husband for our 5th wedding anniversary. We hosted friends and family and it was amazing. My only complaint is it could definitely use some cleaning. Walls, baseboards, and some curtains were not very clean. Maybe a cleaning service should be hired. With that said, I would definitely have rented the house again knowing what I know. It wasn't a huge deal, but it could be improved upon. My husband said I did a great job, and our guests did not want to leave. It was a wonderful weekend that we will never forget. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. It is something different than just another beach house, though it's not far from the beach. We will be back, for sure. Our family would like to make it a yearly thing. :)
