  • Inside chaos in outside paradise

    3/5

    This house is situated in a gated community-the first house in-which according to the owners does not get good WiFi. I’m doubtful their router was up to date nor did they have boosters but the WiFi does work sometimes in certain areas in the house. They were clear on that, however, unfortunately my cell service (Verizon) was also extremely spotty, which I found a bit unnerving to be cut from contact. When arriving there was no toilet paper at all in the downstairs bathrooms and almost finished rolls on the top of the house. When you’re paying a good amount, you expect some paper products but there’s none. The microwave downstairs also does not work.I have no way to describe this house except to say it should be completely redone. The dark, cavelike downstairs consists of a spare bedroom with a mural, washer/dryer, a vanity, shower and a toilet in the HALL (toilet is behind bifold doors), a master bedroom that’s frighteningly red, has a lady mural, and a half bath. There’s also an outdated stainless steel kitchen, a pool in the living room, a bar, and small dining area. The Wi-Fi works mostly only in the master bedroom and upstairs. The pool cannot be used as a hot tub because you cannot turn it up, nor use it as a swim spa because owner has that locked up. You can stand in lukewarm water and that’s about it. Pool goes off ALL the time throughout the day and night and makes loud noises. In fact, this house is so noisy, it’s scary. There are so many odd noises-one almost replicates the turning on and off of a lock. I was so frightened we ended up buying some Brinks door security bars. (We did have an incident of a trespasser from the not private beach on the property.) The upstairs has an open bedroom, two living rooms, a deck, kitchen, dining room, and two toilets, shower/bath combo. It’s all out in the open and privacy is limited. It’s also decorated strangely and does NOT give you beach house vibes. The color red is a theme and my sister said she wasn’t sure about the stability of the deck. It has one table out there that has seen better days.I rented this house for the outdoor bath and it did not disappoint. Taking baths outside, under palm trees in a hut was extraordinary. There are two outdoor showers, the beach out the back door is a long walking/shelling beach (public access is very close) and I very much loved being on the outside of this house. Good restaurants nearby.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Christine, we want all of our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we're sorry that you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    -We always try to accommodate our guests and the charm of the property is its location who want to escape the city and stress of everyday life and tune out the world, enjoy nature and relax by the beach. There are plenty of activities and restaurants and shopping within a few minutes away.
    -Cable providers are not available to this private community. Our Wi-Fi is provided by Via-Sat and the cable is the best we can find in our location. This is fully disclosed under the description of the property. We also installed a booster for better cell service and we have not had a problem inside the house.
    -The microwave is new and in good working order. If there was difficulty in using it, assistance could have been provided if notified.
    -We have a professional cleaning crew and new toilet paper is left before each stay if missed, we wish you would have contacted them to replenish supplies.
    -The pool is indoor and has an air-conditioned space and not a spa/hot tub. Its kept at eighty-five degrees and does run on a pre-programmed cycle for filtration purposes.
    -The property is surrounded by woods and many trees. There is a bird sanctuary to the north. There are nature sounds that one may not be familiar with. The lock noises heard are the electronic locks that are set up for safety. They automatically lock after a short period, assuring that the main doors are locked.
    -This house was completely renovated three years ago. including the kitchen, electrical system, a/c, plumbing, and other structures were redone or newly built without changing the character of the original home.
    -There are three bedrooms in this house, meant for no more than six guests. The upstairs is the honeymoon suite. There is a fully locked door between upstairs and downstairs. This allows for total privacy and enjoyment for a couple upstairs. It boasts his and hers private bathrooms, two sitting areas and is self-contained.
    -We are sorry that you did not enjoy the décor. Our photos depict the listing accurately so the guests can decide before booking if the style matches their preferences.
    Thanks for your valuable feedback as we continue to improve for future guests!

  • Eclectic stay

    4/5

    This house was very eclectic, but was perfect for what we needed! We took our son and his new bride for a family vaca! Beds are comfy, both Kitchens were great, lots of toilet options and showers! My favorite was the outdoor shower attached to house! Son was the only one who used the spa like shower in the zen garden, said the water pressure wasn’t very good! Shower in upstairs master was not my favorite, only because it was odd…we LOVED the fire pit and used it every night! Little things prevent me from giving it a 5 out of five! Please keep in mind I’m OCD soooo I fixed the shower curtain in the upstairs shower, it wasn’t looped right(I warned you I’m OCD) I also noticed the curtains that separate the upstairs master from the living space wasn’t pooped right, didn’t have the energy to re hang the whole curtain. My husband and son are the cooks and they felt there could be more staples in the kitchen, I.e. spices and more staples! This could be due to pandemic, which in the case please disregard! We loved our time and the location is perfect! Thank you!

    The view of and proximity to the beach were incredible. There were many gathering spaces to relax and visit with friends. The house had everything we needed.

  • Peace and Quiet

    5/5

    I don't know if you can find a better property on the beach for peace and quiet. It has all the creature comforts anyone would need for a nice relaxing vacation. If you are with a group, and your over 6 feet tall, then you need to take the upstairs bedroom for the taller shower head. Also, check out Mimosa's for a really good breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay there.
