Absolutely Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent our Thanksgiving Break week at this wonderful beach house! It had everything we needed to be comfortable, had an ocean view, plenty of space for family time on the third floor and then retreat to separate spaces!

The children were enamored with the views and the house! The four grandgirls had a great space to catch up on all the latest news and our only grandson had a room to himself--for a change!

We enjoyed walking to the beach and even had beach toys and a beach wagon to pull the 3-year old in. The neighbors on the south side of the Mayan Princess were very open to letting us use their beach access walkway!

The trip was wonderful! We would come again!

Fantastic home with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Our annual 4th of July trip got an upgrade this year moving from La Mirage to this beautiful home. There are lots of personal touches that make this feel like a home.

The owner is very responsive and very nice, a real pleasure to work with.

The home was stocked well beyond our expectations with soft towels, clean linens, vacuum cleaner, and more than we needed to feel comfortable in the kitchen. Heck even the dishwasher was fantastic (so quiet).

With the kitchen and common area on the 3rd floor, the elevator was a treat - no backbreaking trips with loaded coolers or suitcases.

Grab this place - its a real find!!

Large, well decorated home for large family vacation.

  • 3 of 5

We wanted to do a four generation vacation week, and Stephanie's house was large enough to accommodate us. It was a beautiful home, very well decorated. The home was very well stocked, plenty of plates, utensils, pots, pans etc. Plenty of indoor towels and nice bed linens. Also a large number of sand chairs, beach toys, wagon, etc... Lots of fun stuff in addition to what we brought.

Owners were very accessible and friendly, answering my questions quickly.

I was initially very disappointed by the beach access, it is on the complete other side of the Mayan Princess hotel. However after being there, it wasn't as bad as I thought, just not the easy access I had expected. Since my 83 year old mother was with us, it made it a necessity to buy a beach parking pass so we could drive her to the beach. In fairness, an annual pass is just $12.

I was also disappointed by the configuration of the rooms. The room with 'four twin beds' was a room inaccessible from the house, except through the attached garage. What we expected to be the 'kids room' wasn't an option since all other bedrooms were on the second and third floors in the actual house. There was also an external door to this 'four twin beds bedroom' but the deadbolt was rusted open, leaving only a button lock on the doorknob to secure the room.

The management company needs to be more attentive to the house. There were lots burned out light bulbs, a broken ceiling fan, a broken disposal, and a disabled or broken smoke detector.

We did have a great time, but given the configuration of the rooms and the proximity to the water, I would probably consider looking elsewhere next summer.

Wonderful for large groups that want to hang together

  • 5 of 5

A great place for multiple couples as each bedroom has its own bath.

Great common space - The living & dining room were large enough for our entire group to hang out. Decor was beautiful.

Kitchen - It is really fully stocked. The only thing I would suggest bringing is zip lock bags, tin foil & more paper towels.

View - From the 3rd floor balcony the view was GREAT. You really can see the ocean & you are not starring into someones house.

Bedrooms - 3rd floor bedroom & bath was huge - King bed, shower and tub, double sinks. There is a 1/2 bath on the third floor so we didn't have to go through bedroom or go downstairs - nice. On the 2nd floor there are two larger bedrooms, one with a king and one with a queen. The king has a private balcony looking towards the pool. The third bedroom on the 2nd floor is the smallest - queen bed - not a lot of room to spread out in this bedroom. There is a 2nd balcony off the hall of the 2nd floor with a nice couch area. The laundry closet is also on the 2nd floor. The 1st floor is like a little en-suite. It is only accessible from the back porch or through the garage. Perfect for the kids- four twin beds (trundled not bunk), a huge closet (where the ice machine is located) and a decent size bathroom. On the back porch they have their own picnic table and covered area to hang out.

Beach - When you drive to the beach be sure to buy a parking pass at any store in Port A so you can go to the left as you enter the beach. This area was much easier to drive and park on - go down by marker 88 there are fewer people. Plenty of beach chairs in the garage!!

Negatives - Only a few. There really is no direct beach access unless you walk through the Mayan Princess hotel. Go through Admirals Row behind the house at your own risk - there is a not so nice man there that I believe his only purpose in life is to yell at people walking through. This is a negative but it is full disclosed on Home Away so its not like we didn't know. The beach access road is only a mile away and you can easily drive down the beach - we drove down the beach all the way into town - just because. There is no way to get a beach buggy from the beach to the house without illegally driving it down the main road the mile from the beach access road to the house (and you can't drive it one the side of the road really well either) The only other negative is the sink and fridge location - can't wash dishes & open the fridg at the same time.

The property was awesome! Everything you need will be provided. The weather was a little on the cold side, and the pool was not heated, but not a big deal. I would highlt recommend this house!
