Great Location, but several cons

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Awesome location! This house is literally across the street from Kids Corner Park, which was great for the kids every morning before heading to the beach. Beach access via stairs was directly across the park, just one block away. While this beach is smaller than the main South Beach by the pier, it suited our needs and it was really great to be able to run back to the house for forgotten items, additional food, the bathroom, etc. For our smaller children it was too far to walk to the downtown area, but there was always plenty of parking on side streets when we wanted to get ice cream. The house slept our family of 5 people very comfortably- two adults in bedroom one and three children in bedroom two (bunk beds and a twin). Two more people could sleep on the pull out couch, but the mattress is very thin and would not be good for anyone needing more support. There were plenty of pillows, bed linens, and towels and the washer/dryer was great for dealing with beach towels and wet clothing. TV has cable and a DVD player- bring movies to watch if desired. The Ducy’s were very nice and easy to work with, deposit was returned within one week.

Cons: No dining room table, so it was difficult to seat six of us for meals. No internet! There was an Xfinity hotspot near the park, which we could access at certain points in the house (like by the microwave), but it was unreliable. This is an older house so it's not light and roomy, but dark and living/cooking space was tight for the 6 of us. I wouldn't recommend this house for more than 3-4 adults/teens. The biggest cons for us were the dog hair, smell, and fleas. My husband and I had bites from sleeping in the master bedroom. Dog hair was all over our luggage, clothes, etc. and the smell was very off putting- especially in the bedrooms.

Of note: Looking through the posted pictures, a few things have changed. The living room no longer has the black sectional, but has a pull out couch and two other cushioned chairs instead. Also, there was no glass patio table with umbrella on the back porch. There were just enough forks and plates for six of us, but a seventh person would require some additional items. No napkins and not quite enough toilet paper- bring extra.
