Good house for active group, not ideal location

  • 3 of 5

We booked this house because of it's good amenities for children and somewhat close distance to the beach and other fun activities.

Pros-The pool, hot tub and gaming areas are good for a family or group to spread out and have something different to do when not at the beach. The house is roomy and adequately appointed with all living spaces on the main floor separated by a long hallway. The open area underneath is sort of a man cave basement and has a bonus bathroom. It has enough bedrooms, TV's and bathrooms for a group to feel comfortable. I would use this place if I had 5 or more active people, multiple ages to keep occupied.

Cons- The kitchen has limited counter space and baking pans if you're a big cooker so grilling out is more the way to go but kitchen is adequate. The house is located in an area with a some boarded up houses (post storm damage?) and down the street from a pocket of lower income properties. This was really our only real complaint, as it was not the type of place you'd take your kids on a stroll down the streets to look at the cute front porches after dinner and that's what we expected from our stay and took the wind of our vacation sails. Cars coming out of that area were booming their stereos.... you get the idea. It's a shame as the house it self is really good option otherwise.

If this doesn't bother you, then go for it. I'm hoping someone will come in and work on this area, as it has a ton of potential.

Nice large property

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this location, it fit nicely with our large family, (two parents, three grown children and spouses)

PROS: The house was exactly as described and had a secure parking area behind the house. The A/C was cold and they had plenty of pool floats, towels, outdoor folding chairs and ice chests for outings. TVs in all the bedrooms, The washer and dryer is conveniently placed in the kitchen, not in the basement (yay) House manager, pool manager and owner were very pleasant to deal with.

CONS: The listing stated there was coffee, tea, sugar, creamer, trash bags , foil and laundry soap provided, we couldn't find any of these items. We had to run to the store several times to purchase items, including hand soap. The pots and pans need to be replaced, someone has used metal on the teflon and all the food we cooked stuck to the pans. The house did not have a cookie sheet or any baking dishes. The wifi code listed on paperwork was incorrect, the correct one was on back of wifi modem. There are three pull out cots but no sheets for them, we could only find blankets. I did leave a note in detail about these items. I think renters most likely take the items by mistake and then the owners do not know to replace them. Maybe they need a checklist?

Overall, this house was great, I would highly recommend it for 6 adults and a few small kiddos.

They really are very hospitable ,just come prepared to bring or purchase the missing items.

I would recommend that the owners move the air hockey table in the basement and make that room another bedroom, maybe even two sets of bunkbeds to comfortably sleep more. I would have given this location a 5 star if the listed items were provided.

We will definately rent this house again if available.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing weekend at this house! Its a beautiful, home and it was so relaxing. Very quite neighborhood, looks rough but the neighbors were friendly. We went for our 'pre wedding' party and had a few friends come and stay, and it was amazing and soooo relaxing! Dr. Mike was very quick and responding to my emails and very understanding of my situation (I booked the day of) and he helped me out! Also, the property manager Donna was very helpful and very sweet. They weren't all in our business but called after I stay to make sure our stay was good. Has a good security system, pool, hot tub. Overall, amazing! Definitely recommend this lovely home!!!!!
