Let me start by saying that we really enjoyed our time at this home. Our group consisted of 2 families (4 adults, 2 teenagers & 2 kids in their 20’s). The home was plenty spacious for us all, and was well stocked with towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs, etc. We chose to have the parents stay in the upstairs unit, and kids downstairs. Access to the nearest beach is just about 50 yards down the street, and we spent countless hours on the back patio, enjoying the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks at the edge of the property.
The home is conveniently located, but not in the typical “tourist” areas. You’ll find yourself primarily amongst locals, not resorts and hotels. In fact, I’m not sure I saw a building more than two stories tall. WalMart, Target, and several grocery stores are near by, convenient to provision your stay.
Josh, the owner, was extremely accommodating. He allowed us to arrive a little ahead of our scheduled “check-in” time, and checked in with us periodically throughout our stay. It’s also very apparent that he’s continuing to maintain and improve the property. Even during our stay, he was having a very nice privacy fence installed at the edge of the property; helping to buffer from an unattractive property next door.
Lastly, I’d advise everyone to have appropriate expectations. This is a home that IS at the edge of the ocean. If you understand how salt and wind impacts a home, then you’ll understand that there will always be some amount of “weathering”, even with constant maintenance and upkeep. If you need the Ritz Carlton, this home is not for you. If you want clean, comfortable, private, and to be immersed in the local environment, it’ll be a perfect fit.
