Decent property in a good location

This property was very clean. In a nice location on main Padre Island Blvd--only a few minute walk to the beach so this was great. Nice large driveway. Has washer & dryer in garage so this is a plus. Private pool is a bit small but having the pool and hot tub is great! Downside--the 2 spiral staircases are not ideal if you have small children. Nor are the stairs out front--railing is not adequete. Found many waterbugs & ants in the house! This was a bit unnerving as I HATE bugs! Property could also use a few more sheets/bedding & towels. This house has a fully stocked kitchen, and they do provide minimal paper products (a few rolls of toilet paper, 1 roll paper towels, 1 trash bag) so we did have to buy cleaning supplies, paper goods, all condiments, etc. Some private homes that we have rented do provide some essentials for cooking (like oil, salt, pepper) but this place was very minimal other than cooking untensils & dishes. It would have been nice if they at least provided dish soap and a sponge.. They do provide travel size bar soap & shampoo in the bathrooms and that is the extent of it. Nice front patio with a table & chairs. No back porch however, nor a nice grill. Not the best house if you are entertaining & plan on cooking out. Overall it was a decent stay but I would not go back due to having 2 small kiddos & due to having to buy every little thing. If you don't mind having to do so then it's a great fit. My older child appreciated the Playstation 2 upstairs (you must bring your own games though as none as provided).. And I would advise that the property management provide more instructions on TV/Pool/Spa, location of washer & dryer, etc--they have a nice binder with some info but it is all very vague.

Owner's Response: We don't provide cooking oil, salt & pepper because we feel it's not sanitary
to provide those type of items. If there is ever a bug problem and the
rental office is notified it will be taken care of immediately.
And someone can be sent out if a renter ever has trouble operating
the TV/Pool/Spa and they notify the rental office.
There is a brick BBQ by the pool.
We strive to make sure every guest has an enjoyable trouble free stay.
