A Truly Relaxing Weekend Away!
Submitted: March 27, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
My friends and I LOVED this beach house. There were 11 of us total (three couples and five singles) and we each had an actual bed, which is hard to find. Two of the couples used the 2 queens, my husband and I stayed in the bunk bed room with the single lady of the group, and the four bachelors stayed in the single beds in the loft. Worked out great!
Overall, the place is exactly as described. It's a nice home with no neighbors on one side and just steps from the beach. There was enough parking for 6-8 cars really easily. There was enough sitting room inside and outside for all of us and the kitchen was well-stocked with nearly everything we needed for cooking. We were impressed with the amound of dishware available, which we put to use since we grilled on the provided charcoal bbq every day. It was just a great setup for a weekend away.
As for what's around, I would suggest bringing everything you need since the closest "real" grocery stores are about 15 miles away. But we made the trip along Seawall Blvd several times since we didn't plan out food very well. It was a nice drive, so it wasn't the end of the world. Also, there is a great putt-putt golf course around 81st street and Seawall Blvd that was fun when we went Saturday evening.
Before you go, I would suggest making sure you have enough food, toilet paper, charcoal, and lighter fluid for your stay. Don't forget spices or condiments. There are more than enough plates, silverware, and blankets at the house. They even provided a towel and face cloth for each of us as well as a washer a dryer we used when we liked.
Our only issue ever was the sound one of the toilets made when flushing (the one next to the bunk bed room), but it flushed fine. We just made a joke that it liked to scream at us when used.
If our biggest problem was a plumbing noise, I'd consider that a super successful stay. We'll definitely be back.
Owner's Response: We are so glad the house met the needs of you, your friends and family. Thank you for your positive comments. And that screaming toilet is now on the maintenance mans list to repair. Thanks for letting us know.
