Great location with potential
Great floor plan in a newer construction (open, spacious, lots of natural light). One wall in the common area is almost all windows! In a very private location on a dead end street. Lots of white walls and light woods which gave it a clean, open feel. The deck was spacious and furnished. Unfortunately, there were a number of carpenter ants and daddy long leg spiders. Also the deck would have been much more enjoyable had close growing trees been pruned to reveal the long distance view. The house is oriented in the right direction so that the sunset is viewable, but not with those close growing trees blocking the way. The kitchen also needs a detailed cleaning - there is a stickiness on the cabinets that you feel every time you open a door (no handle design), the floors look clean until you walk on them and feel your feet stick to them and the oven was really dirty. Also, the wireless internet was not working properly - definitely a bummer. Lastly, the DVD player was not working properly - it would work for a while, but then freeze and/or jump back a couple of scenes. We thought it might have been the DVD itself, but it played fine on the portable player we had brought for the car ride up to the Cape. The TV in one of the bedrooms was a nice plus, but it only had a VCR player attached to it which seemed a bit dated tech wise. Overall I would still recommend this property as is, but would really rave about it if the above mentionned problems were corrected.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our home - both great points and some to be addressed. The option to write reviews offers Homeaway viewers the opportunity to hear from guests - an important element when making a vacation property decision. We are eager to address issues raised by guests, and this is no exception. We leave a journal for guests to write comments and have frequent contact with our rental agent. Had we known of these concerns, we would have responded during their stay.
The kitchen issues have been addressed with our cleaning service - cleanliness is essential and this is the 1st such report we have ever received.
The DVD player will be replaced and the wireless Internet addressed - both before the next guests arrive in 3 days.
There were multiple spring and early summer applications of insecticide. In a wooded/sandy outside area, ants and daddy long legs are in their element. We will address this.
The trees surronding the deck can be seen two ways - either blocking a view or providing privacy. Some trees are on our neighbors property and some on National Seashore property. We will certainly look at these in the fall.
Thank you for your comments. This is our 10th rental season, and it is our goal to provide a home where each guest has a most enjoyable vacation!
