Very nice home

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice with a pool and all the accessories. Everything you needed was there for pool and beach. The pool water was a little chilly, but it was in March, so did not get a chance to warm up.

Very comfortable and accommodating home! We loved it very much and it was close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home. The master bed is so comfortable - the other bedrooms were the perfect size for our kids / only drawback would be having mirrors in all the bedrooms? 4 teenage girls sharing one bathroom mirror made getting ready difficult but there was literally everything we needed and more in the home! The pool was big and so awesome to have!! We would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to our next visit!! Thank you so much to the owners and the manager for being so quick to respond and making it very easy.

Lewis Center, Oh

Great location & Great Pool

  • 5 of 5

The house was just what we needed for a family with kids under 10 years. The pool was perfect and the garage was stocked with toys and beach necessities. Everything that you need/want to do is within a short drive (5-10 mins) and there is plenty more if your wanting to go even further. The ‘pay it foward’ approach to stocking the home with little things also helped tremendously when flying in from Ohio. Home is located in a very quiet/friendly neighborhood. Would definitely recommend and stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely 5 star review! We are glad that you appreciated all the items we keep in the garage. We have everything we need for a day at the beach and thought that others should also! We also appreciate all the spices, oils, etc. that are kept in the house. It makes cooking away from home, that much easier! We hope that you will stay with us in the future! Sharon and Jon

everything you need for a family and little kids

  • 5 of 5

The home is very beautiful it was like a home away from home and everything we need with the beach toys the pool toys it was very clean when we got there the pool was nice wish it was heated though the first couple days that we was there it rain so we couldn't really enJoy the pool because it was a little bit chilly the kitchen was fully stocked up with some food from the previous people that was there b4 use we wish the dishwasher work we was going to use it but the little door where you put the soap was missing and wish there was a TV in the guest room and wish we could have parked in the garage because it was raining and where they store the trash cans at in the garage when it's really hot out it starts smelling in there I wish there was lighting out by the pool so when you sit out there at night there is one light out there put a hanging one up and the property manager was the best but in all it was a perfect home I will most definitely say there again

Owner's Response: Hi Neal, Thank you for the 5 star rating! We wish you would have contacted us or the property manager. The dishwasher does work with the little door off. We took it off ourselves on a trip down in April as it was sticking and not opening up. But, it can and is used as it is. We, too, wish the pool was heated at times and hope to take care of that detail in the future. We hope that you will consider staying with us in the future! Sharon and Jon
