  • Great for what we needed


    It was great overall but the bathtub was super stopped up which made waiting for the bath/shower even longer than we already anticipated it being with 10 plus people. Plus, it was just gross because it was sand on top of water that wouldn’t drain. My husband said he knew what the problem was and if he had his tools with him, it would’ve been an easy fix. So maybe they’ll have it fixed for future guests. Overall, it was clean and affordable and provided sleeping arrangements for our huge family to stay and have a great 4th of July weekend :))

  • Misleading description of Rental


    The regret of reading the positive reviews and believing they were accurate- they must have been bots . This is NOT a 3 bedroom rental. One bedroom, a 2x2 hot box, and a living room with beds, no couches. We left early because we couldn’t handle the noise from the surf shop below.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Michael, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this relaxing surfside bunkhouse wasn't the one for you. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - The layout of the home is clear in our listing photos, but we are sorry if it caught you off-guard. The property is listed as a former fire station where we kept the open-concept bunkhouse as the pictures show.
    - We can assure all guests that the home is spacious, though apologize if the layout of the home didn't match your family's personal preferences.
    - We encourage guests to thoroughly review the listing before booking, to ensure they find the perfect vacation home for their needs.
    - There are several chairs available for seating. We like the suggestion of a couch and may remove some of the cushion chairs to create room for a couch instead.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Your feedback is important to us!

  • Great family experience!!


    We love Freeport beaches. Especially the little pedestrian beach we found since it feels a little more private. Our place was fantastic! We had 4 queen beds all in one huge room, on which 2 sets of adults slept and 2 sets of kids, then my husband and I slept in the private room with the king bed and still had plenty of room to set up a pack & play for our 21 month old to sleep in. The kids and even the adults said it was nice to all sleep in one huge room for a few days. It was like the most epic sleepover ever with all the cousins. It was also cool getting to dine together as a family in the mornings at the kitchen table :)) That’s something that typically happens on Christmas and MAYBE one other time a year so it was special to get to do that together for 3 days in a row.
