Nice Location, But Read The Fine Print Before Considering This House

Anytime you read a online review, you need to take it with a grain of salt as you never know both sides of the story. The previous review on this house was extremely helpful as it made us aware of something we have never experienced before when renting a house. Most times, when you rent a property, you pay XX amount of dollars for the cleaning service at the end of your stay. There is no cleaning service with this house. You are expected to clean the bathroom, vacuum, sweep, etc. We have never heard of vacationers needing to do this after staying at a rental.

Now, if you don't mind cleaning at the end of a vacation stay, this place is for you. For a two bedroom, the apartment is huge. There are two decks - one indoor and one outdoor. The apartment is walking distance to the center of town and it is not on a busy road.

If you decide to rent this apartment, make sure to read the fine print before sending your deposit.

Great location, low on frills unit

If the three most important things in real estate are 'location, location, location', then this house has got it going. It is a very short walk from downtown york and the beach. A great place to stay to walk to the zoo, the restaurants, and the ocean.

But outside of the location, the house leaves much to be desired.

The house itself is old and rickety with lots of low ceilings to bump your head into and stairs that are very narrow and on the verge of dangerous to walk down.

The other piece to be aware of is the minimal stocking of the house. We had to provide our own toilet paper. And despite the fact that we washed all of the dishes, cleaned all of the linens, and swept the entire house, we were knocked nearly half of our security deposit to pay for them to clean the unit.

I've never rented a house before where so little was provided and where they used they expected the tenant to basically do a professional clean of the house.

So, if it is location you are looking for, this is a nice unit. But beware of everything else.

The place was awesome!! Nice spacious kitchen I cooked dinner 5 nites out of 7.. Kids (Three teenagers) sit at the table and we all chatted while I cooked..Good family bonding time!!.Game nite and puzzle time on the enclosed porch every nite...plenty of space for everyone to have their own space to chill if need be.(and with three teenagers -- always a time when one needs to chill!!)
The deck and views were incredible..

Great house!! And Location!! I had rented two bikes (5 miles away, nice ride to/from rental place) and the girls got up in the morning and rode to the beach to watch the sunrise...would walk to the beach every morning, I'd come back at lunch time and make lunch and bring it back to the beach!! One overcast day took a short car ride up to Wells and played mini golf. We had such a good week!

The kids are still talking about "our" week!!

Would love to come back!!

Sure will be back in touch with you!!
