Great views, very close to the beach, but lacked amenities
This was a very nice building, that had morning sunrise views of the ocean and even views of the sunsets over the bay. The beds were comfortable, and we used the linen service. They provided ample towels, clean sheets, wash cloths, etc. The living room furniture was comfortable, and the dining room table accommodated our family of 6 adults and one baby. Parking for 2 cars undercover was nice and felt totally secure. We actually left our beach chairs, umbrella and sand toys in the back of the truck, with no fear of someone taking them. The stove, refrigerator, toaster, blender, knife carving set, and A/C all were great. These are the things that constituted the three stars
The downside was the other amenities of the house. The carpet was not clean, and for being the first part of July the expectation was that it would have been much cleaner. Path were visible, and stains were noticeable. The kitchen utensils were extremely limited, and the knives, forks and spoon were at best, substandard. I don't want to be mean, but these were an incredibly poor quality. The porch furniture was PVC, cracked and a very low quality grade. The outside deck area was lovely except it had a large patch of mold on a 6 foot square section of the porch in a corner. It's the beach, I get that, but a little maintenance is expected. Having my grandson with Cystic Fibrosis(lung disease), we were forced to create a barrier from that area.
Probably the more disappointing condition was the bathrooms. Each of the bathtub showers had drains that trickled when emptying. Essentially you stood in dirty water waiting for the tub to drain. We found a plunger and worked on each tub for 15 minutes to free it from sand an hair clogs. Not what I wanted to do, but the alternative was to complain to the real estate company, and wait. So we elected to address it, still not great, but it works. In addition the master bath had mold where the tile meets the shower base. All along the perimeter. These two things are the fault of the maintenance company, not necessarily the owner.
The house was very superficially clean when we arrived. The problem stems from it needing a deep clean and attention to details. Drains, carpet, mold, etc.

Great place to stay for a weekend trip or vacation. Zero complaints other than the building doors were a hassle to get unlocked. Highly recommended
