Another Stay, More Happy Days!!
We have been staying at Joel and Dana's place now for about 4 yrs, going in all 4 seasons of the year. This is my second review see ("sittin on the dock")
As I see the new, and only negative review, I felt I had to comment. You have to remember this is a rental just as any other on H.B, meaning many people use it.
We were there the week after (7/13/13) and DID NOT encounter any of the problems the previous reviewer mentioned.
Walk down or around the corner of house to Laundry ? Yes! big deal,!! You can walk to the beach but can't walk to the laundry room?,REALLY? Weeds leading to laundry room?, in 4 yrs, I have never seen the grass not having been cut anywhere.Shared Laundry?, it's a Duplex!! If you stay at a hotel do you pay to do your laundry? again yes!
In the good reviews here, and in the comment books in both upper and lower units,You will see everyone says how great a time they had, and enjoyed the house, EACH and EVERY week!!!..
Joel and his family are super people and will help with anything they can "IF YOU LET HIM KNOW.".. He does offer a good deal ,and a nice home,to boot!! The canal, and close walk to the beach can't be beat.!!!
Every place on the beach could use a little upkeep I'm sure, as once again, they are ALL RENTALS
We love the "old style " beach house feel that this duplex provides, as I have been a beach bum for 40 yrs, with my parents owning a house like this, back in the 60's, 70's,early 80's until "Hugo".It too was used by many renters, when we weren't using it ourselves and did show the "'usage" that all rentals do as well.
.We consider This Homey Beach House as "our home away from home", just as does Joel and Dana. and we treat it as such!!
If you want a five star hotel, I suggest you look at the more expensive rentals on the beach, and leave Joel's place to those who will appreciate the home and the way it is!!!
I write this review to deter anyone who may decide a "no go" due to one bad review on a very nice rental unit,on the canal, with fish cleaning station, boat dock and 3 minute walk to the beach.A very nice rental in my opinion. If I were to add anything it would be a ladder on the dock to use after swimming in the canal to help get back on the dock for those who can't jump!, yes! you can swim in the canal!!
Thank you for taking the time time to read my lengthy review in the end ,I hope it helps in your beach going decisions, and not let 1 bad review turn you away!!!... Jerry McClanahan
