not for a family for sure!
Of course this house is at 5 minutes from hampton beach and the beach is very nice but the house not well situated. At the end of a very bumpy road, this cottage is dark, with no light. In almost every windows, stands a air conditionner. We didin't have to use it because it wasn't that hot. But, we would of appreciate opening a window or sometihing. The first night we arrived it was rainning. The rain clapping on the 3 air conditionners was awfully noisy. We couldn't sleep at all. We had to put a towel on the AC so the noise would be smoother. Next day, the wind whistled through the AC and was very anoying. We couldn't do anything for it. The internet did not work anymore because of the wind so we called the owner who was suppose to repair it. It never was even if she gave us the neighbord's keyword, we only had internet in the living room. Also, there is no space really to be outside while eating. The BBQ and the picnic table is in the driveway witch is a bit weird and not inviting. the rooms are soooooo small. It might be ok for one night but a whole week it's not ok at all. There is a room with only a small window and there is an air conditionner in it. And the last thing: The owner seems to control the water temperature for the shower so it is very not hot enough. We had to take hot water from the bathroom sink and put it in the bath. Was I camping or what? Creepy. At least it was very clean. I'm sorry but I do not recommand this place for families who is planning to save money and eat at the cottage, it's not inviting.
Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at the beach. We take pride in ensuring that our unit meets or exceeds the needs of families and have always received positive feedback from our renters. With the house’s location on a quiet dead end street that is mostly owner occupied, it may have felt a bit deserted during your off-season visit, and unfortunately the weather did not cooperate.
With regard to your concerns:
• We installed small window AC units in each of the rooms based on feedback from previous tenants. Besides the AC component, each unit also has a fan that circulates air from outside, and there are other windows without AC units in two out of three locations that can be opened. In addition, each room has a ceiling fan to enhance air circulation.
• When you notified us of an issue with internet we provided you with the code from another house that we own, so that you would not go without internet access. The internet was back up and running for your unit within 24 hours.
• We appreciate your feedback on the shower temperature. Given that this house was just built two years ago, hot water temperatures were set according to local and state building codes by the builder. This is the first time anyone has raised this issue. We have had a plumber out to check for issues with the faucet settings. We only wish you had said something during your stay, as this would also have been addressed.
As owners of rental units, we strive to insure that we provide a safe, comfortable rental unit with a variety of amenities (washer and drier, AC, flat screen television, microwave, dishwasher, and access to a gas grille) that support a pleasant vacation and a great family location a block from the beach.
