Property conditions & facilities

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with group, Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
DO NOT STAY HERE!!! The property was filthy, broken coffee maker, exposed electrical outlet, outlets that didn’t work, a toilet that was leaking and plumber had to be called. Smelled like sewer but that might be a city problem. If the owner tended the property regularly and cleared out the pipes that might not have been a problem. The owner never responded to our request on a partial refund. You have been warned. STAY AWAY!!! The only positive thing about the rental was the awesome neighbor that lives next door
Stayed 2 nights in May 2021

5/5 Excellent

Perfect spot
Couldn't ask for a better all around experience. The free cart made all the difference! Grocery store 100 yards away, set right on the middle of town. Everything was a very easy walk. Loved it!

2/5 Poor

Pluses: great location close to everything, good floor plan for family of four, awesome that golf cart was included Minuses: bathrooms need remodel, toilets miniature, rusty gross shower and lighting, lightbulbs throughout were either burnt out or too low, NO hand soap provided, only one roll paper towels, main heater is in front room so bedrooms get cold, no porch so no where to sit outside.

5/5 Excellent

My wife and I enjoyed our and hope to do it again someday soon.

4/5 Good

Great location!
This is a very good property for a family with a great location (2 blocks to beach and 1/2 block to market) . The place is relatively clean and comfortable (new mattress/pilows in main bedroom). Twin beds are great for kids/teens. Sofa bed was uncomfortable even for my teen. Kitchen also tight for more than 4 (2 additional sets provided at the bar) . Kitchen well-equipped. TV service and wifi worked well. Many fans provided. Appreciated the toiletries. No outdoor lounging space unless you wanted to sit at the sidewalk. Very much appreciated the golf cart for 4! Would def stay again with just the 4 of us.
