Beautiful Home and Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was an exciting stay for my family. The location to the beach and center of town was great as well. The home was very clean and efficient, as there were no complaints from any of the adults in our group. We had a total of 11 adults and the home was plenty big. Only downside was the arcade game in the garage did not work, that would have been an added bonus. Overall I would highly recommend and stay here again myself.

Large house in walking distance of beach

  • 4 of 5

Overall, nice house and I'd stay there again. Beautiful and very spacious house for a large family. Large spacious closets (master has huge walk in closet and gorgeous bathroom). Love that the master bath door leads directly to pool. Great for bathroom breaks from pool for children. Also I love the suite above garage. It's like a 2nd master suite area. House was at one time an extremely nice house. Beautiful floors, extremely spacious, overall nicer than most beach rental homes, but it is need of some upkeep. Gas grill needs replacing-it hardly works at all(piece of junk basically). Steps going into house are breaking off at edge and are dangerous for elderly and need replacing. Back door facing leading into garage is rotten. Video game in garage does not work. Foosball table leg is unsteady and no ball is provided for playing. Small ping pong table, but no paddles or balls provided. Kitchen table and some kitchen chairs need to be made more sturdy (are wobbly). Kitchen has nice plates, cereal bowls, cups and silverware, but lacks in area of measuring cups, measuring spoons, mixing bowls, containers for left over foods, and grilling utensils. Pool is much smaller than what it appears in picture, but it is nice with deepest part being 5 feet which is great for small children. Beach access is only one block away, but actual available beach area is very limited in space. Only a very small area is designated for public beach use. Signs are on both sides of public beach area telling you those areas of the beach are only for condo guests. You hardly have room for large family beach tents. All of family (4 small children, 2 sets of parents, grandparents, and great grandparents went - total of 12). House was perfect for us. All families had their own bedroom and bath. Almost all bedrooms had their own balcony. Strong sturdy house. Tropical storm came through during our stay, and you could hardly tell the wind force inside. Nice patio table and furniture. Overall, very nice house. I would love to see owners do some upkeep to bring this house back up to its nicer than average capabilities. With a little upkeep, this house would definitely be the nicest beach home we have stayed in.

The property was ok.

  • 3 of 5

The property was ok . I think some upgrades should take place. Also things in the house are a little outdated. Other than that it was wonderful.
