Our vacation 2017

  • 4 of 5

I took a family vacation with my sons,daughter in law and 2 grandchildren and we had a wonderful stay. It was a great location for us. Everything was so handy. Nick and his wife dropped in the evening we arrived and were very sweet couple. If there was only one thing l would complain about it would be the pool. I pool needs a lot of maintaining . I know cause l have one. This one was good for 3 days but after that we couldn't swim in it so other then that it was all great..

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review - We enjoyed having you and your family as our guests! We tell all of our guests to please let us know if you need anything throughout your stay and we are more than happy to take care of anything! We want everything to be prefect for you. If we had known that the pool needed some care we would have gotten it back to pristine right away! Unfortunately if our guests do not let us know, we have no way of solving the problem. Normally they just send us a text or email and we come right over with chlorine. Since you had a little rain during your stay it must have diluted the chemicals (as you know because you also have a pool). So glad you had a great stay regardless and hopefully enjoyed the ocean as well! :) Thanks again!

Bike Week Stay

  • 4 of 5

Good location just off Dunlawton Avenue with easy access to many venues. Garage was a plus for keeping the bikes dry and secure. Washer and dryer were used after getting caught in the rain several times. Kitchen had everything we needed. Queen bedroom needs a dresser and mirror. Owner Nick was quick to respond when we asked for the hot water heater to be adjusted. Too cool to use the pool, but we did sit out on the patio at night.

Total Package

  • 5 of 5

The owners are Fantasic! They are helpful and understanding, anything we needed (Time, questions, extra beds, etc...) they provided. The house was roomy,Backyard is fantastic to grill and had enough space to play our games in the backyard. The location from the beach was perfect for us (spring breakers). RATE: 10 out of 10

Spring Break Stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice, well furnished and very beautiful. The location was great and near to the beach. We felt very safe there and had any amenity we needed nearby. The main complaints included how dirty the floor was. Five minutes walking around barefoot on the first day and our feet were black on the bottom. The washer and dryer function, but you have to do a lot of work to get them to clean clothing. The washer has to be manually put to a rinse and spin mode and the dryer takes two hours minimum to dry clothing. The back light on the porch does not work so any time we were outside on the patio at night we needed to bring flashlights. The pool does not filter, but we were not in the pool much since it was still a little too chilly for that. The biggest concern that we ran into was the water. The hottest temperature is luke-warm for showering.

Overall, we gave four stars because everything that was wrong was mild compared to many other places you could stay at, also the location and nearby people were wonderful. For the price of this house you are getting more than what you pay for and you will definitely enjoy your stay. The furniture was nice, the kitchen was adequately stocked, the air conditioning was easy to work and definitely kept the house at a comfortable temperature. I would recommend staying here to a friend or family member who is looking for an affordable beach vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I want to address some of your concerns that you experienced - I clean the house between each stay and always mop the floors so I was very dismayed to hear you found the floors a bit dirty? Perhaps it was dirt that came in on your shoes. With a group of over 10 people this can definitely happen! The washer and dryer work well for me each time I use them to wash the linens in between guests and I've never had to manually put the washer to spin mode. I believe the concern you had with the dryer was you need to empty the lint out of it between loads (it was full when I arrived after your check out). The light on the back porch requires batteries so it just needed some new ones. If you would have informed me of this issue I would have been glad to change them for you! The pool does filter so I am not sure what you meant by this? We have it serviced by a pool tech to make sure everything is running well. The water heater was just serviced and the previous guests confirmed it was working well. Again, if you had voiced any concern I would have been more than happy to help you. My neighbors were concerned that there were more than 10 in your group and were upset about the loud partying until 4:00 in the morning. The fact that the bed frame was broken upon our arrival (and the state the house was left in) proved there was a lack of respect taken to our home. I tried to contact you twice during your stay with no response. I hope that if you stay at another person's home in the future you will be more respectful and courteous.

Great hosts, close to the Beach and fishing. The house was great for our needs. Our grandchildren and family came to visit and it was just what we needed. Thanks Val and Nick and we will be seeing you soon.
