Not the ideal beach house,is a Baseman apartment.
When we decided to rent a beach house is because we expect a home away from home. Our first impression was not a positive one. We where expecting the ideal beach house is describe on the website, instead we where very deceive. We end up getting a basement apartment with an infestation of flies not only that, the place was dirty, period. from the floors, the bathroom and the kitchen. Starting on the kitchen, the coffee maker disgusting, the fridge was dirty and ice maker not working the oven needed to be clean almost started a fire because of the old grease was not clean, the temp knob is mess up could not get setup to the right temp. You post fully equip kitchen, for a family of eight people ? not of some necessary things we need in a kitchen like a colander, a good size baking pan, a spatula, no cereal bowls, your pots and pans are in really bad shape, i don't think you would dare cooking with those. The bathroom was dirty, no rug for stepping out of the shower. The bedrooms, first of all no linens, specify on website you provide linens, well if we didn't called the day before we came, it would of escalated into a bigger problem for us. The dressers drawers where dirty. The doorknobs aren't working on two of the four bedrooms, nowhere to hang clothes (no closets) Its supposed to be a beach house and we had NOWHERE to hang our towels. Since there wasn't a dryer the least they could have done were to provide towel hangers. We didn't found a DVD player which it would of being nice to watch the movies we brought on the rainy day, you are aware that the furniture was not in the condition described, and the futon couch was full of animal hair which caused me to have an allergic reaction. The patio and grill area was another turnoff, surrounded by flys and other bugs because of the trash cans being right next to it, the grill was disgusting. If we were looking for just a location we would off rent a couple of rooms in a motel. Also, the owners upstairs are very noisy, specially in the morning is very annoying.
We don't want to be picky about this place but, what they describe on the website and what we found in this place where two total opposite. We don't think this place is worth the amount of money they charge and when the cleaning service is not available why should we pay for it. The only positive is the location. But better off staying in a hotel than this place. We do not recommend this place to anyone. We were a family of eigth with teens.
Owner's Response: This is so ridiculous I hate to even respond to it. From the minute this woman arrived and realized she didn't have the whole house, everything became a problem. I don't know if it was due to a language barrier or simply because she didn't read the lease which clearly states in the heading in bold print "Lower Unit of Two Family House". She was given the option to leave which she didn't take. So she stayed, made up complaint after complaint, and then demanded a $500 refund or she would write me a bad review. Well, it is obvious I didn't submit to her threat. The house was completely renovated from the studs out from Superstorm Sandy damage and was just completed in May 2013. Please see my other reviews for an accurate representation of the rental.
