Great Beach House
Submitted: September 7, 2012
Stayed: August 2012
We had 8 adults and five children under the age of six. The home and cottage handled this number of guests very well - enough bedrooms, enough bathrooms,several common areas, internet, and large kitchen well stocked. The owner has done a great job with interior decorating. We loved the screened front porch. It helped make it feel like a beach house. Proximity to beach was great. Two beach/cruising bikes are kept at the home and all adults loved riding around town on them. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub as well. Funland, just down the boardwalk, is a terrific amusement park for young children and the rides are cheap. You feel like you've gone back in time. The owner prior to our arrival was very responsive and there were no surprises. Our biggest complaint is having to rent or bring our own linens. Given the cost of a week's rental for this home, linens should be included. The basement (where there is a second refrigerator. washer/dryer, air hockey table) and cottage are quite musty. Charming landscaping, but it was in need of a good clean-up and pruning.
Families with Teenagers,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Even though we didn't receive a 5-star rating from you, and for that we are truly sorry, nevertheless we wanted to update you on a major renovation we have completed over the winter to weatherproof and reinvigorate our basement.
The heavy rains incurred in Rehoboth last season, which while atypical of the summers there, nevertheless caused a significant rise in the water table, and as you commented, it was causing a slight musty odor in the basement. We've now addressed that, by installing new commercial-grade "membranes" on the inside of all exterior walls, a totally-new perimeter drainage system and heavy-duty sump pump (with backup) around the foundation, and also have installed a commercial-grade dehumidifier to eliminate any evaporative moisture which is the primary cause of the "musty" odor.
We take all of our guest comments seriously, especially the not-so-perfect ones, as we want to make everyone's experience at Seahorse Crossing as pleasant and memorable as possible. Thank you for staying with us, and for providing excellent feedback. Should you decide to return, please contact us for a special Discount Code we've got just for you and your family!
