  • Bring your Own Body wash and hand soap


    The house is nice and spacious; the owner gets an "F" for communication and hospitality.

    He told me we would get house key code 24 hours in advance and when I still had not received 22 hours in advance I had to text him again to get the code.

    He also never informed us that the house did not have some basics like pillow cases for 2 of the pillows in one bedroom. We received one towel per person" as it was only a 4 night stay "; despite the house being close to the ocean that other neighbors were enjoying. We discovered after we arrived that no soap for tub and we appeared to have hand soap in 1 bathroom; but when used it discovered it was water with a little soap in it. It was frustrating to have to make multiple trips to the grocery store.

    The house was hot when we arrived , but cooled off quickly as soon as we opened the windows . Owner did provide working ceiling fans in the rooms and box fans which kept the house comfortable.

    Owner needs a good management company as a different attitude and a few basics could have turned this into a wonderful 4 or 5 star experience. After much communication; owner informed us that we could find a pillowcase in room behind living room that he had asked us not to go into; we did find 1 pillowcase in a cabinet in there. But he had been telling us to use dusty pillows from the couch for pillows because 2 pillows had no pillowcases. The off limits room also had beach towels which we did not use.

    Owner expected us to take out all trash and take trash and recycling bins to the curb. Owner wanted us to strip beds and start 1 load of laundry prior to leaving which we did; but we would have done even more if owner had been more pleasant. It would also have been helpful to have information on grocery store and restaurants he sent in his text on a laminated sheet on table or kitchen counter.

  • Wedding weekend


    Rented place for my groomsman for my wedding weekend, house and location are great, lots of room to enjoy the day and was close to all the venues we needed to get to to, weekend was incredible. Just remember to buy fans as the upstairs does get pretty hot in the summer time, house has crank windows that don’t fit ac’s. We managed just fine and it was fantastic.

  • Not worth the money


    The location was perfect and the house was cute, however, POORLY maintained. The deck was in horrible shape with the built in bench falling apart and covered in moss due to over hanging trees, the gutters were overflowing and the swing is a liability waiting to happen. The house was incredibly hot with only one room that had the AC turned on (it was controlledby the home owner) which started blowing out hot air shortly after arrival. When I messaged the home owner they turned it off, and when asked to turn it back on later in the evening in hopes it would be working correctly, the home owners stated when they lived on the property they barely ever used the unit but did end up turning it back on for us. Upon further inspection, the AC unit had vines growing in it so we used it sparingly. The rest of the rooms had fans which barely made a difference. There is only one tv that is connected to streaming services in the living room so if you need a tv to fall asleep to, you’ll need to bring a tablet or use your phone. Additionally, the ants were terrible and be prepared to spend a ton of time trying to figure out which light switch goes with what, there’s a ton! Lastly, I’ve rented many houses in the past and for the amount of money spent, to have to strip beds, start a load of laundry and do a load of dishes in the dishwasher, I ended up leaving with a house cleaner than what I arrived to. These are all things I would regularly do, however, have not been asked to do so with any other rental property. The location was the only perk as it was right by the water with excellent views.

  • No AC in any bedrooms


    Come prepared to sweat and wake up with the birds at 4:30am every morning. 0 effort put into any outdoor space, so you're spending all your time inside. Just a very basic house with not much more than a few beds, couch, etc. 1 clean bathroom and 1 old and in need of renovation.
