My wife & I have stayed at this house five times now, four times before 2011 and again for the fifth time just last week, and we have enjoyed it each and every time. We noted no real deterioration of the property and in fact did note that there were several new additions such as outdoor furniture and a newly laid top deck and roof. We have always found the house to be clean upon our arrival despite knowing that it has been only hours since the last party to occupy the house had only left hours before.
The rooms are plentiful and comfortably furnished, and plenty of bathrooms. There is a hot tub which honestly is not something that we gravitate to, but the pool is nicely laid out and relatively set to afford privacy, which I see somewhat lacking at other neighboring houses. What we especially love about the house is not only its very close proximity to the beach (the access literally just across the road), but also to shopping, restaurants and tourist interests (all beginning about a mile away).
One big thing was that there appeared to have been a recent fire across the street that took out two homes which resulted in two things: 1st, because of the winds that normally accompany any beach front area, there was some occasional drifting of fine material that did settle into the pool area, but this did not detract from the use of the pool in the slightest which was more than likely due to the stepped up maintenance by the pool 'dude'. It is just something that you can only keep after as best you can, and that seemed to be the case here. The 2nd affect created by the fire was that it left a MAGNIFICENT view of the ocean. I know this sounds crass, but hey, it is what it is.
We love this place and would not hesitate a second staying there again.
Spent most of the first day cleaning the house.Cleaning people did a poor job at best.Pool was dirty upon check in.Pool light and lights in pool area did not work.Furniture in house is old and deck furniture is broken and in poor condition.Outside of house is full of spider webs and bugs.Yard needs a good clean up as well.Outside shower by pool is disgusting and looks like it has not been cleaned ever.I am a Realtor and would never rent a house to anyone in this condition until the many items are attended to.
