Vacation Rental Summary
We have been coming for over 50 years and this time we stayed in a house w/great view. House could use some upgrades, need another access to bathroom(take down mirror). Location was perfect.
The house is very nice. I think we must have been the first guests to rent with the new furniture. The kitchen was well stocked and we needed that because we had 12 people for dinner. All of us would specifically want to stay here again. The only "look-out" to the owners would be the plumbing system needs to be replaced. The pipes are old and the water pressure is being affected. I am speaking from experience here.
When we arrived we were so excited to see the best view ever! We spent most of our time on the patio. It was nice to be near town. The downstairs bedroom was Ok but having to go outside to get to it was strange but worked out. The mirror in the hallway that covers the door to the bathroom needs to be removed so that the bathroom can be used without going through the bedroom.
I rented this house to celebrate my son's graduation from college. Boy it was amazing! First the view is so breath taking you never want to leave. The house had everything we needed to be very comfortable. The size of the house was perfect as well. I would definitely refer this house to everyone! The location was ideal, just a short walk to the store and shops and restaurants. There are a couple of things that would have been nice to have available, a golf cart for sure! Walking up that hill a couple times a day can really wear you out. Beach chairs would be a nice touch as well. Other than that, it was nothing short of perfection. I will definitely be back!!
Renting through Civr was great - they were very accommodating. The house's location and view were spectacular - just as advertised. The home was pretty much what we were looking for - more a home than a rental (though bathrooms/kitchen were a bit outdated). Very roomy. What we didn't understand is that the downstairs bed/bath were completely separate - you had to use outside steps to get to it. It worked OK for us (grandparents stayed downstairs), but if I were looking for the 3rd BR for kids, that wouldn't have worked. The master bath upstairs/toilet part should have its door put back in so it opens to the hall - would be more convenient than having to go through a BR to get to any bathroom. There were some lights out (over stove, hallway, kitchen) & directions to using the oven would have been helpful! Overall, I'd give it 5 if the kitchen/baths were updated, and can't give it a 4.5 stars, so that's why not a perfect score. Though that view - outstanding - we stared at it all day!! We'd rent it again!
