“Nice house but missing finishing touches to make it great”

Our family (parents + 3 adult children with spouses & kids) enjoyed the location of the house... very close to the beach, and it has great views. My review is going to sound nit-picky, and that's because I was expecting more. The house was laid out pretty well and was very comfortable, but for the price we paid, it was missing some things: there were only 5 wine glasses (and only one of those was glass, the others were plastic); there was a broom, but no dust pan; there weren't any drink tables by the pool; the silverware and knives were awful; the lower level of the house (where the kids slept) smelled VERY musty/moldy; the sheets didn't fit the mattress properly and didn't stay on; some of the recliners in the theater room didn't recline, etc. These things are minor, but again, for the money paid we expected perfection. For about $500, the place could be completely updated and would have left a better impression.
