This home was great for our family beach week get together. It worked very well for two families to sleep upstairs and Grandpa to have his own room on the main level. We had six kids (ranging in age from 2-15 years) and five adults. It is an older home, so worn older floors, functioning but outdated appliances in the kitchen (fridge & dishwasher are newer) and clutter under porch and in garage, etc., but everything works fine and the living space of the house was bright, clean and updated with new paint (washer/dryer were also new and bathrooms updated). The house was VERY well stocked with soaps (dishwasher, dish, hand soaps, laundry, shampoo, body soap, etc), linens, towels, ziplock baggies, Tupperware, toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, plastic utensils, basic condiments & spices.... Linens & towels (including a few for the beach) were in excellent condition (new). We have rented several times through VRBO and never has a house been so well stocked upon arrival. So considerate of the owner and definitely not typical.
Each room has A/C unit and fans, which was wonderful on warmer days. Some obstructed ocean views across the street from the front rooms, but we could smell the salt water which was so nice!
Owner lives close by and was prompt in addressing minor issues with the home.
The house sits on a quiet street with a sidewalk to the beach--literally a 5 min walk to short sands & the shops and restaurants and kids could ride bikes/scooters safely & easily to the beach. The back yard is great with a nice grill and huge back yard for the kids to play (yard backs to dead end road where kids could safely ride bikes & play). We parked the car and didn't need it other than runs to the grocery store.
Parents--the house had a pack & play and kid gate (which we uses at the top of the back stairs as they were very steep & dangerous for the 2 year olds).
