  • Great spot, Cozy visit!


    This was a very comfortable stay, beautiful house, with great views! my only reason for not giving a 5 is; the house smelled a bit of smoke from fire place when we first arrived and we lost power, popped a circuit, in a bedroom on the first night. it was fixed the next morning and all good after that. The Private access beach was very cool spot! Other than these two minor issues, I was very pleased with property and recommend for a quiet relaxing vacation.

  • Very dirty


    This place was dirty dirty. There was trash still in the bins from whoever stayed before us, and the Kurig had old stagnant water in it from who knows how long, complete with an old used K-cup still in the machine. There is dog hair on everything, like, everything everything. Globs of it under the beds. There is no heating in the house, and you’re given 1 bundle of wood when you check in to get you started. There’s no kindling, no tinder. Just a cold dark house, three logs, and half a box of matches. It took two hours to get a fire going the first night. There are space heaters, but most of them are half melted and we were afraid to leave them on at night. In the bedroom off the living room we never could get the lights on. So half the lights in the house just don’t work. The bathroom tub is stained yellow on the walls, it looks like it hasn’t been cleaned in a while. There was a massive spider living in the master shower, so that clearly hadn’t been turned on or cleaned in a while. All of the “clean” dishes in the cupboards are full of water, I’m not sure why. So everything had to be cleaned twice. The utensils are old melted plastic, so if you stay here I recommend bringing your own pan and spatula at least. I’d also recommend bringing your own pillow as the ones here are useless they’re so worn. There’s no lint trap in the dryer, but there’s plenty of lint built up. That’s how we finally got the fire going, so I guess there’s that. The fire place looked like it had never been cleaned out. There was so much old ash the vent was completely clogged up and blocked. We cleaned it out, because that’s a fire hazard for the house. Over all, the house gets one star for the hot tub and the view. Other than that, I would recommend the area, and staying anywhere else.

    Hi Lauren, we want our guests to arrive at a vacation home that is 100% ready for their stay, so we take the cleanliness of our properties seriously.
    - The homeowners assured us that the house is always professionally cleaned between each guest, though they apologize if anything was overlooked. The cleaning staff was in a bit of a rush to get the house ready before your arrival as the previous guests left the same day.
    - The owners recently visited the house and confirmed that everything is clean and working well. They also replaced the rugs.
    - The fireplace is brand new and was just installed over the summer. They apologize if you had trouble getting it lit.
    - The pillows are also still relatively new, and they did not see any that needed replacing.
    - The owners let us know that they were in contact with you regarding these concerns. They hope you appreciated their efforts to make things right.
    Thanks for your feedback. We are confident that future guests will find this home clean and comfortable!

  • Private beach access


    Pros: We loved the private beach access. It was so convenient. A few times we went down there, we were the only car in the lot. The hot tub was amazing with the view of the ocean. The house fit our group great. Cons: There is a major ant problem that needs to be handled. We had to deal with it multiple times a day. The beds and bathrooms were clean but the carpets had dog hair everywhere. Its not ideal at all to stay here for a week without being able to wash and dry clothes. The towels and our bathing suits were hard to work with without a dryer.

    Hi Ashley, we're so glad that you enjoyed the amazing location and beautiful views from the hot tub! We are sorry to hear that your stay fell short in other areas.
    - We followed up with the owners, who wanted to apologize for the ant issue. They have never had this problem before, and they hired an exterminator right away to take care of it.
    - They have also decided to start offering laundry services based on recent guest feedback.
    - The owners were surprised to hear that you found dog hair as they are meticulous with the cleaning. They have addressed this with their housekeeper.
    Thanks for your helpful feedback. We are confident that future guests will find this home clean and comfortable!
