Nice Family Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Lemon Drop. We stayed with my siblings and their families (9 adults, 6 kids and 2 babies). The house was very nice, furnished beautifully, great location and the owner was wonderful at responding to our needs. When we asked for a few missing items, she responded and supplied them within hours.

I would like to point out to other large families considering this home that although this house slept everyone very comfortably with all the bunks, we felt a bit crammed. The dining area consists of a table with 6 chairs and a card table and 6 extra chairs are provided. We brought extra folding chairs for the patio. We used the kitchen chairs adjacent to the sectional couch in the main area to be together. We all have small children, so we did spend a considerable amount of time in the house and had the kids go to the basement to play or watch TV or the side living room.

The park out back is super to have so close. Just know that it is down a hill (with a cool slide from the house to the park) with foliage in between the house and the park, so you do need to actually go to the park with the kids if you want to watch them. Also, it draws many other people, so there will be noise from the park. The noise wasn't so close that it bothered us, I just had to question if it was our children or someone else's :)

If you sleep in the bedrooms in the basement, you will enjoy the coolest air (obviously), but you will be wakened by footsteps and noises from above. No surprise, normal in a home, but if you're figuring out who should sleep where, keep that in mind.

Lastly, this picture of the Lemon Drop is outdated--there are other homes on the street. Bring your bikes so that you can ride to the pool and beach. We used our vehicle to drop our items to the beach, then used the golf cart and bikes to get there. Bikes were best, as we had a child carrier that we hauled our stuff all the way down the long boardwalk to the beach.

Thanks lemon drop and Melissa!

A bit run-down and dated

  • 2 of 5

While the house had adequate sleeping areas (for up to 14 or 15), the kitchen was small and the condition of the outside of the home was not well kept. The layout, especially of the upstairs master was a bit odd including a stairway to a 'bell-tower' viewing area that was not screened in. The Direct TV was not functional and the owner/manager had an attitude that the renters would / should act as on-site service personnel reporting to her all problems (otherwise the renters would be blamed) including poorly functioning plumbing and a golf cart with a loose/ broken back seat. In short, adquate but the attitude of the owner made it a less than ideal rental.

Nice house in great resort town but management must be spread too thin

  • 3 of 5

The house was as described only with the added perk of newly installed internet! Space was ample but the layout posed an issue when eating with large groups.

The playground off the back was a huge plus but you'll be sharing it with more people as the street has seen recent development.

There were some minor issues with our stay. The house lacked kitchen towels and a coffee pot. There were no additional linens and some beds did not have a bed pad. Many bathrooms did not have the bath mats put out. The front and back porch lights were out. Some of these issues were addressed and management was nice in correspondence.

The larges issue was a non-working golf cart. Since road parking is nearly impossible, the golf cart would have provided much needed transportation to the beach and pool. Management did call out a mechanic but after that it appeared as though there was no effort to get it going during our stay. I can only assume it remained broken for the next renter as it sat in the same spot all week.

Owner's Response: Management is not spread too thin or I likely would not have been able to address your concerns within an hour of calling me. We absolutely have a coffee maker- a Kerig, just as described. You had plenty of bath mats and kitchen towels you guys just wanted more so I brought them to you along with changing the burnt bulbs I overlooked, my apologies. Every single bed has a mattress protector. The golf cart had a mechanical issue and was picked up during your stay so every attempt to address the issue was done. Thankfully there is a free trolley that was able to pick you up at the front door as many times as you guys requested.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lemondrop over Labor Day weekend and it was perfect for three families. We loved the fact that there are two bedrooms in the basement with lots of bunk beds so we were able to have all the kids sleep downstairs. There was plenty of space for everyone and the house was well appointed. You walk out the back door and there is a slide right down to the park which was great fun. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thank you Julie for the great review! I truly love the slide off of the back deck as well (more so my son), but he has talked me into it a few times as well. Hope to have you stay at Lemon Drop in the future!
