My family and I stayed at this house as part of a birthday celebration. and we had a fantastic time. The house was exactly what we expected from the listing. It was clean, in good repair, well stocked, and the lay out of the home worked wonderfully for our needs (8 people including a 5 year old, a 16 year old, and adults up to age 45). The closeness to the beach, shopping, and to Ocean Shores made planning our days very convenient. Our kids loved the hot tub just as much as we did. Perhaps the best part for me was that we were able to create some fantastic meals in the well stocked kitchen, and the open floor plan and view made it easy to include everyone in the process. Anything that we could have needed was available; dish soap, laundry soap, hair dryer, extra pillows and bedding, pots, pans, a slow-cooker, gas BBQ, utensils, beach toys and chairs, salt and pepper, etc. We would be happy to stay here again.
I can only think of 2 things that could have made our stay better. Having easier access to the back yard would have been great. Maybe some stairs from the deck would be an option. Also, the master bedroom faces the rising sun and the white window blinds did nothing to keep the bright sun at bay. Maybe some thick curtains would be helpful for those that want to sleep in past sunrise (like my 5 year old daughter and husband).
I would recommend this property to my friends and family. It is great for both adults and kids. The property is also pet friendly. We have not had dogs for a few years now, but if we did, they would have loved the large fenced yard, running on the beach, and sleeping next to the fireplace.
