Overall we had a wonderful stay in this house. Our vacation was a bit over shadowed by the hurricane's this past summer. The owner had a care taker on island who was very helpful in getting us prepared for the [what turned out to be a non-event] and sharing evacuation details with us.
That being said this house might not be for everyone…I will break down the pros/cons.
--Location was perfect. Short easy drive to town, right on the ocean with a swimmable beach less than 5 minutes walk away.
--It easily accommodated our party of 8.
--We had beautiful ocean views and could watch the sea turtles right in front of our house.
--Kitchen was adequately equipped.
--Lots of outside furniture.
--Owner was very responsive and easy to work with.
--Price was incredible for what you got and the location.
--Windows were showing wear and tear from all the sea salt [some couldn't really be opened/closed]
--The worst part was only having AC in bedroom and not one in the common living area. The hurricane made it hotter and muggier than normal, but we had to close the windows every time we left so it got pretty hot. Although all the rooms had fans and it did cool of some at night it was uncomfortable, particular in the separate mother-in-laws bonus room. In all fairness we knew the place didn't have AC throughout, but I thought the trade winds would do a better job of cooling the place down.
--There was a small mix-up regarding having the place ready for our check-in. The owner quickly remedied this and refunded us the first night because of this delay.
