Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed in a home away from home.... the only thing nicer than the property was the owner himself. An overall joy. We will be back!

Great location if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, fun vacation. Steps from the beach and Tom is a great host. Couldn't ask for anything better!!

Great location and great amenities

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. This was our first venture with VRBO and we were very happy with how easy the process was once we settled on a place that had availability. Tom was quick to answer our questions and easy to work with. We showed up at about midnight which was no problem because we found the keys in the lock box and we got settled in right away. We really loved how much room the condo had and can never go back to a regular hotel room for the four of us again now!

We really loved all of the water toys that came with the place (chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, resort style beach towels, Frisbee and more). We also loved the covered parking which kept the car shaded from the sun and out of the rain. The beds and living room furniture were comfortable, and the kitchen had all of the utensils and cups/plates/bowls that we needed. The cabinets even held some leftover spices and such which is extremely helpful.

We couldn't go a full 5 stars though for a couple factors. One was the construction right next door. There are 2 houses being built on the lot north of the condo. They didn't start until 8am, but given we came in from AZ it felt like 5am to us. You could hear it in the northern bedroom and it of course interrupted the quiet when we sat on the front porch to watch the waves and drink our coffee and eat breakfast. Also, the bedrooms are located right up against the main road so you hear the traffic in the rooms. Lastly, I travel quite a bit for my job and have grown accustomed to light blocking curtains on the windows. The north bedroom had only thin blinds and the other had the thin blinds and sheer curtains which let lots of sunshine into the rooms in the morning. I wouldn't necessarily let any of these factors prevent me from renting this unit again, but I would be better prepared for them next time.

Overall we are very happy with our experience and already wish we were back.

Tolles Apartment für Strandliebhaber

  • 4 of 5

Wir (2 Erwachsene und ein Jugendlicher) hatten eine tolle Zeit in dem Apartment. Da es keine Hotelanlagen in der Nähe gibt, ist der Strand schön leer, nur zu den spektakulären Sonnenuntergängen füllt es sich ein wenig. Wer Spaß hat, Vögel beim Fischen zu beobachten, ist hier absolut richtig. Wir haben auch Delphine gesehen und Meeresschildkröten legen im Sand ihre Eier ab. Grill, Strandstühle, Sonnenschirm, Luftmatratze usw. stehen zur freien Verfügung. Auch Standup-Paddelboards können ausprobiert werden.

Tom, der Vermieter, wohnt gleich nebenan, ist unkompliziert und sehr hilfsbereit.

Die Wohnung und der Balkon sind genau so schön und großzügig wie auf den Bildern abgebildet. Das Apartment ist allerdings in zweiter Reihe direkt an der Straße und da die Schlafräume zur Straße liegen, empfanden wir es nachts als etwas laut, daher ein Stern Abzug.

Ansonsten würden wir das Apartment immer wieder gerne mieten.
