Beautiful house and beach
Thank you for providing such a beautiful home at an awesome price to vacationers! This house was almost perfect! Very quiet and private- felt secluded without having to worry about being too loud for neighbors etc., yet not so secluded that you could not get to grocery, restaurants and beach easily.Publix grocery, high end shopping, restaurants and Walmart is an easy aprox. 6-8 min. drive. Gulf Place a short 2 minute drive or a 20 min. walk, and Baytowne Wharf about 10- 15 min. We enjoyed the easy walk to the beach, everyone was so nice about stopping to let you cross street- or a 45- 60 sec. drive to the small, but never crowded parking lot to entrance to beach. This home was spacious- loved the kid's room. I have never seen a kitchen more stocked with dishes for both kid's and adults- huge supply of linens also.Loved the salt water pool, small, but 7 kid's didn't even notice. Bring citronella candles if you like to sit around the pool or upper deck at night- it gets buggy. I say ALMOST perfect because there was an issue with the ice maker. We called the 1st day we noticed it. However, maintenance said it will start up by that night. Long story short, he never came to look at it, by the time the appliance co. came, owners decided to just get a new one- long story short, the new one did not come until Thursday, said it would take a day to make the ice, and then will need to dump a few buckets. We were without ice for the entire week! Owners were understanding ( I eventually contacted them) but, with my experience and based on previous comments, this is not the best management group! While things break and happen, it would have been nice to have a someone who could come out on that Sunday to see what the problem was and maybe then it would have just been a few days. Bathrooms were not cleaned very well, and floors were not visibly dirty, but when I went to wipe something off floor, the wipe was extremely dirty! It is a big home and I understand no way possible for 1 person to wash all the linens and thoroughly clean. Just would be nice to ask if vacationer would mind if they came bacApparently there was a group there before us who did not give much respect to someone's home and had left a few things broke- but those were being taken care of. Over all- we absolutely loved it here and I hope that anyone else who decides to stay will take care of it, we hope to be back! We have told so many people about it , guess we will have to make sure to book it early
