Guestbook comments from the manager
The beach house was very nice. My favorite was the downstairs apartment with a full kitchen and dining area. There were 3 refrigerators which really help with all of the groceries. There was plenty of seating area in the dining and living room.

The owners had the beach house for 30 years and they are a very nice retired couple that spend most of their time traveling all around the world and the caribbean.

Marisol Mendez purchased this house in 1983

This beautiful oceanfront beach house is a great place to relax and enjoy a great time with the family and loved ones. The deck is all around the house. There is plenty of seating area in the decks over looking the ocean.

This beautiful beach house has the benefit of having oceanfront view. The house has 3 refrigerators and two big flat screen TV's.

Not enough changes

I agree with a review given a year ago that the cabin is nice with unobstructed view of the ocean. Lots of space but filled with the crummiest furniture and cheapest knick-knacks imaginable. Cabin needs to be cleaned up, redecorated and properly set up for guests. Although initially shocked at the condition of the cabin, we made do and ended up having a nice time. Cabin has great potential, but I would never rent this cabin again as is.
Get rid of all the crummy Goodwill furniture and cheap knick-knacks. Just toss it all. People like clean uncluttered space. The 1970’s tulip lamps, naked mermaid end tables, plastic elephant tusk Asian end tables, Jesus clocks etc. ad nauseum are all tacky eyesores. Toss those ancient tube TVs. And get a better cable package with at least CNN and ESPN. There was no DVD players downstairs where the family gathers.
Clean up the front office area of all your personal office. It’s got the best view but totally unusable. Add bar height furniture for dining and viewing the ocean. the little table does not allow all the people that fit in the house to sit for a meal together!
The deck areas are really nice especially the third deck, but there’s no furniture to enjoy the space (only bare plastic—no cushions or padded chairs like in the picture). Buy some tall PVC furniture to allow guests to see the ocean above the railing. Patio table at ground level is rusted out with no seating. Buy two picnic tables so people can barbeque and enjoy being outdoors.
Stick with plain solid color sheets that can be bleached. Get rid of all the gross throw pillows, bath rugs and toilet covers. Porcelain surfaces are easy to keep clean. Do some basic maintenance and buy some higher quality appliances: the $10 coffee pot breaks in your hand when used.
Clean up all the junk lying around, 1/2 burned candles and higher a different cleaning crew:this one is not getting the job done.
You moved freezer from dining room to the top level! try moving food through the precarious steps a few times and you can end up on the floor.
The good things are great AC, decks, unobstructed view of the ocean, lots of beds and showers, 3 refrigerators, 2 charcoal barbeque grills, nice indoor washer/dryer, comfortable living room couches and big screen TV (although the mounting location was weird). You are very demanding with your rules which give renters the sense that this is a VERY nice place.
Marisol is great and has a very hard job.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely recommend this property and am already planning our reunion there next year.
Having dealt with a few other property owners, Marisol was definitely the easiest and most professional.
There were 18 of us staying at the beach house and all of us had a great time.

Fishing Weekend

  • 5 of 5
This is the first time we rented this property, and we were very pleased with it. We had a fishing trip planned and a little mini family reunion. The whole family enjoyed the ocean view, the house was clean, and a/c worked wonderfully. We will be renting again next year! Thank you R. Mathews

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this house for the last two years and I went back to stay this time and the owner had done some changes to the house that I really liked. The house has 3 refrigerator which were very convenient for all of our groceries. We had plenty of room there were 8 full size beds and 5 full baths. We look forward to next year.

Lots of potential but not ready for guests

  • 2 of 5
Cabin is nice with unobstructed view of the ocean. Lots of space but filled with the crummiest furniture and cheapest knick-knacks imaginable. Cabin needs to be cleaned up, redecorated and properly set up for guests. Although initially shocked at the condition of the cabin, we made do and ended up having a nice time. Cabin has great potential, but I would never rent this cabin again as is.

I’m pretty sure we were one of the first renters so I’m going to try to be constructive.

Get rid of all the crummy Goodwill furniture and cheap knick-knacks. Just toss it all. People like clean uncluttered space. The 1970’s tulip lamps, naked mermaid end tables, plastic elephant tusk Asian end tables, Jesus clocks etc. ad nauseum are all tacky eyesores. Take down some of the mirrors. Toss those ancient tube TVs. And get a better cable package with at least CNN and ESPN. There was no DVD player…or books, games, toys.

Clean up the front office area of all your personal office items--medicine cabinet (really gross BTW), file cabinet, oxygen tank(!!!), exercise equipment, etc. It’s got the best view but totally unusable. Add bar height furniture for dining and viewing the ocean.

The deck areas are really nice especially the third deck, but there’s no furniture to enjoy the space (only bare plastic—no cushions or padded chairs like in the picture). Buy some tall PVC furniture to allow guests to see the ocean above the railing. Patio table at ground level is rusted out with no seating. Buy two picnic tables so people can barbeque and enjoy being outdoors.

Stick with plain solid color sheets that can be bleached. Get rid of all the gross throw pillows, bath rugs and toilet covers. Porcelain surfaces are easy to keep clean. Do some basic maintenance. Apartment shower handle and main floor toilet handle were broken.

Clean up all the junk lying around—stuff on top of cabinets, pots with no plants in them, greasy burner covers on the apt stove, etc. You have a two car garage but no place to store beach items. Clean out all the trash in the garage and make it usable space. Move freezer from dining room to garage. BTW, don’t leave mouse baits in the apartment because they smell bad.

The good things are great AC, decks, unobstructed view of the ocean, lots of beds and showers, 3 refrigerators, 2 charcoal barbeque grills, nice indoor washer/dryer, comfortable living room couches and big screen TV (although the mounting location was weird).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your suggestions. When you lease the house the house was under a different management. All of the stuff has been corrected and the house is ready now. The house looks great! Thank you
