The house was very nice/clean and the area was great. It is truly close to everything yet far enough away from the madness if you want to relax. The upper deck is the highest one in the immediate area and offers the best view of the beach w/o viewing the neighbors. We would absolutely rent this house again. We rented very early in the season and there were no life guards yet until Memorial Day Wkend, so there was nearly no one around during the week. There were issues we had, which were minor, yet annoying but we figured it was because we were there so early in the season that the owners just didn't get around to making some minor repairs: 1) the screen doors to the main porch were broken or off the track so the doors didn't close all the way, there's a 2 inch gap at the bottom - not really a big deal until the evening when hundreds of small flies get in through the opening and settle on the ceiling above the dining room light. 2) the master bedroom bathroom shower was hard to work and there was hard water build up on the shower heads, which looked terrible even after I scrubbed them. All in all we loved our stay and the little problems were no big deal.
