Not clean

  • 3 of 5

The common areas were decent but the all seasons room looked like the floors weren't cleaned in months. There were huge spiderwebs in the entryways and the basement bathroom had around 15 alive bugs in the tub and on the bathroom floor. I'm assuming the bathroom was cleaned at some point maybe weeks ago but there is a bug problem. We also didn't have the password to retrieve the key and got no answer via phone for a half hour so my sister had to crawl through an unlocked window to get inside. When I read the check out instructions on our last day I saw the password was located there to put the key in its place. This would have been helpful in the check-in instructions. The outside area could have been cleaner and there is a hole in the concrete below the patio. There wasn't lighting to enjoy the outdoors at night. The grill was charcoal which wasn't ideal and it had all of the ash from the previous users still there. And the grill was rusted. If I knew this was the circumstances I would have chose a different house. Would I return? No. Would I recommend it to family and friends? No. And on top of it all, Frank is gone too.

Needs some attention!

  • 4 of 5

I was thankful that we had a home to stay in for 3 nights versus a hotel, but with everyone paying their cleaning deposits, it could have been a little cleaner. The front door where you enter is full of cobwebs and dead bugs, same as the back porch and patio. A quick power washing could make it looks more appealing. We were disappointed too that the pool was down for the first two days that we were there and could not use it. One of the reasons I rented this home. Also felt I had to wash dishes in lower cabinet before using them as I found mouse fieces in the silverware draw. That is a total turn off. Also, someone's left over food in the refrigerator and used bar soap in the bathrooms. This is not sanitary. Those could have been left by previous renters, but should have been disposed of. Otherwise it was very convenient to the expressway and what we were doing over the weekend. I would love a partial refund, but I know that is asking a lot. First time doing this and may do it again, not sure.

Great location and close to many great beaches

  • 3 of 5

Overall good experience. Quaint and neat. Space was more then enough for what we needed. Bedding was marginal but sufficient by that I mean the mattress on the northwest corner needs to be replaced. Our family had a great time and would definitely return

House was not 100% ready when we arrived.

  • 2 of 5

We arrived at the house 30 min early. So we got in the house took a quick look around and inside the house was good. Then the owner showed up ( no email or call for a heads up)and said they had a part to put on the dishwasher and they would be out of there. Fine with me no problem. Then after getting most of our bags inside I go to the back yard to check out the pool and it was dirty with a lot of leaves in the pool. So I spent 30-45 min skimming the pool and the owner hooked up the pool cleaner. The outside deck was not even swept off, it had leaves and spider webs on it. So after cleaning the pool the owner stuck around for about another hour hanging lights by pool, watering plants and doing other stuff. The house is right across the street from the highway so you hear trucks flying down the highway all day and night. I assumed when renting a home for vacation when you arrive everything should be ready to be used and everything should be clean. So day 2 I get a call from the owner and she wants to know when it would be a good time to have a cleaner come by to do a quick walk through so she can get a price for cleaning? So I tell her we are out of the house at the moment and she asked me if I could call and set up the the time for the cleaner to come over and get her quote, I was caught off guard by this strange request and trying to pay a park employee to park at the same time and told the owner I had to go .It's not a bad house for a couple day stay close to beaches but from my experience I would not stay at this property again due to the fact that the home was not ready, the owners hung out with our family for a couple hours on our vacation and the trucks flying up and down the highway all day and night.

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great our dog loved the area. The house is nice and clean. Indoor and outdoor hot tub was very convenient. It was a little chilly to get in the pool but a few people did. Landscaping was beautiful. Wineries and beach are about a 10-15 min drive. We had about 10 adults and a dog and had plenty of room and towels. Overall a great weekend. Thanks!
