The home is in a perfect location. You really don't need a car since everything is a 2 -10 minute walk. The beach, bike paths, restaurants and shopping right at your doorstep! I thought the home could stand to be given a little TLC. The house was clean, the beds were clean & quite comfortable and there was ample room for the 5 in my party. The stairways have narrow treads & risers which may not be great for the elderly or small children. Small, inexpensive repairs or just attention to detail would dramatically improve the overall guest experience. Here are two examples, there is a wonderful glide rocker in the living room which squeaks very loudly every time you glide or rock. A $3.50 can of WD-40 could easily alleviate this issue. The noise created by the chair is annoying when you're trying to have a conversation or just watching a bit of television. If you like to cook or like to cook while on vacation, don't make any grand plans to do so while renting this home. The pots & pans and prep ware are not so good. Anyone who considered themselves a "real cook" would be very disappointed. I attempted to use a garlic press that looks like it was manufactured in the 1940's!! That didn't work out so well. Once again, a quick trip to TJMaxx or Marshalls for a decent set of pots, pans & cooking utensils, would have improved my guest experience. Despite these situations, I really enjoyed my vacation. It's really a wonderful house, I just wish the owners / care takers maximized the potential of such a lovely space in such a great location.
