Great location - less than stellar accommodation

  • 2 of 5

I want to start out saying that the owners were very nice and tried to be accommodating when I initially reserved the rental. I really wanted to rate this property well but I encountered so man disappointments with the rental of this home, I couldn't overcome them to give a good review.

The good: The Location is absolutely awesome.

The bad: There was apparently a miscommunication regarding my linen order for the property and was never placed, so no sheets or towels were delivered. An honest mistake yet I could not contact the owners because they were out of the country on vacation. It is incomprehensible that there is no one to contact in case of emergency after hours. The first night I had no linens of any sort in the house, no sheets no towels for shower, nothing. I had to sleep on top of a probably not newly washed comforter. Luckily the surf shop was very helpful and pointed me in the right direction to order my own linens - but that was not until the next day.

In addition when I arrived the home was not clean and there was a cockroach in the bathroom. There were food crumbs in the cabinets where the dishes are stored. There was absolutely nothing in the way of the slightest amenity. I would expect at least one roll of toilet paper in the bathroom, a roll of paper towels for the kitchen, a bar of soap, a sponge at least? There was no iron and no hair dryer, all things that are usually available in a rental home.

There are instructions in the listing that there must be a thorough cleaning of the home including sand removal before leaving the house at the end of the rental period yet there are no cleaning supplies, garbage bags, or even a dust pan to go with the broom.

Also there were no instructions in the house especially with regard to the hot tub - we were unable to figure out how to turn it off. The light bulbs were burnt out in the main bedroom and I had to search around for a lamp from another room to have light in the bedroom. The listing said there was a baby gate available - however there was not one here. I expected to be able to use it for my small dog on the deck.

And, to top it all off the Wifi ceased working 2 days before I was leaving because of an unpaid bill.

The management of this rental leaves much to be desired. Although the location is fantastic - I would be hesitant to rent here again.

Two stars solely for the location.

Really enjoyed our stay. The beach access and ocean views were ideal. The house had everything.

Cozy house, clean and in a great, relaxing location. Would definitely recommend it and rent it again.

Nice Place, Right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The house was nice, right on the beach and only a short distance from restaurants, stores, fishing piers, etc. We even caught a few fish from the beach right in front of the house. Late October ... the weather was nice and the beach had very few people on it. We would go there again.

Great location, needs maintenance

  • 1 of 5

The location is ideal, as was the weather. Bathrooms are nice; beds comfortable. But alas, the house has problems:

-washer and dryer need a check-up - one must set water temp on hot to get cold wash

-dryer's low heat setting meant no heat, medium setting not much better

-dishwasher racks seriously rusty and cracked

-lack of closet space in 2 of 4 bedrooms

-there is a fine outside hose but no faucet handle to enable use (I forgot my pliers)

That said, the living/dining/kitchen area was very comfortable for the 4 of us and the decor is VERY interesting - and quite unique. The saga of obtaining the key is another story - and not a renter-friendly one.

Nice homey feel. Love being able to see the beach every day from the deck.

  • 3 of 5

Had a great time. Friday was a little unsettling due to heavy wind and rain. Thought high tide was going to reach the house. It didn't thankfully! Only downside was having to smoke outside. Not fun in the wind and rain 😢

Desperate need of repairs and maintenance

  • 1 of 5

Nice location but house has severe cockroach problems. Had to vacuum and mop house myself before settling in. Owner did minimal cleaning. All beds need to be replaced. One was but it was more than halfway through our vacation. There was no indication that a partial refund would be given considering the conditions. Would not recommend this place
