Vacation Rental Summary
This is the first time I've rented a home instead of staying in a hotel, but I would certainly do it again with this large of a group. Although well used the place is extremely clean. The kitchen is fully stocked with even some of the basic staples included in the refrig. We were even able to BBQ one night - the BBQ is a basic Weber, so it was great for hot dogs and burgers one night. My mother uses a wheelchair to get around. There are two steps as you go in the front door which she was able to navigate fairly easily. The rest of the house was easy for her to get around. I will look into renting a golf cart for her next time. This unit does not come with a cart. The "kids" room had a double set of twin bunk beds. It worked great for the 4 boys - the only thing to watch is there is an exterior door in that room. Very easy for the older kids to sneak out. The windows didn't all lock - but that wasn't much of a worry. These houses are close together. You can hear all the activity out on the street at all hours and can hear your upstairs neighbors if they walk heavy or snore. Even though we did hear our neighbors it didn't seem to bother anyone. This house is on the main street coming up from the pier - so the location is great. Easy access to the beach, quick access to all the main shops and restaurants - close to the grocery story and you can walk up to the golf course as well.
Thank you for putting in the washer and dryer. We have rented this house for over 20 years. Love coming every year, location is perfect.
We enjoyed the stay, comfortable and lots of beds and long table, full equipped kitchen is a plus. Bathrooms are clean.
House worked great for a stay with 4 Kids. Kitchen well equiped and we eat all but three meals there at the house.
This house was perfect for our needs. We had four kids and four adults and we all slept soundly and had a seat at the dining table. The bathroom and kitchen are newer with nice appliances There is a grill, a wagon, lots of towels, and books and games provided. Having a house really made our stay because we were close to everything but could go relax and have a break and cook our meals which saved a lot of money. We will be coming back again!
I was pleasantly surprised that the rental was fully outfitted for any need we had. We could have walked in with the clothes on our backs and been comfortable. Charming and comfortable. Highly recommend.
I would definitely stay in this little house again. It is close to everything and it is fully loaded with dishes and clean towels for the family. My family will definitely stay there again.
This was a great rental, it lived up to how it was described in the info and it was close enough to town. I look forward to staying here again.
My family stayed here for the last two nights of summer before going back to school. We had a really nice time. This was our first time staying in a rental, as we have stayed in hotels in the past. The rental worked out better for us financially because we are a family of 5 (3 teenagers) and my in-laws came with us, make it a family of 7 - which would have meant three hotel rooms. The kids shared the bunk room and my in-laws in the front room and my husband and I in the back. The layout was nice, a lot of space. The location was great! My father in law is 80, so location was very important to us. The property was clean and very simple. Perfect for a family. We had a really nice time, we ate out for the most part. It was nice to have a full size fridge for cold drinks (purchased at the local Vons) and other snack type items. The property has everything you would need to prepare meals, we just chose not to. Check in/out went very smooth. Overall, was a very nice time for us! We will be doing this again!
We have stayed in this unit every summer for 30+ years. It is comfortable and roomy. The fact that the owners completely remodeled the bathroom a year ago really is a plus. They also delivered a new sofabed (for the living room) this year. Next up: Hopefully they will install a washer/dryer!
When I arrived on Tuesday morning, I was very happy that we were able to check in early. At that time I tried to arrange to have the sheets changed on Friday. I was told I needed to call the office on Wednesday. I did call the office on Wednesday and requested the sheets be changed on Friday - I was given an "ok". But no one came, the sheets were not changed.
Very close to the pier. Clean and loaded with cooking supplies and essentials. Cozy , felt just like home!
