The pictures don't do justice to the BEAUTIFUL location of this property. The hot tub was a nice place to relax after a day on the beach. These are the main reasons I could have given the home a 5 star rating (location-location-location…). We were 4 families, 7 adults and 3 children. Although there are 4 bedrooms and 4 queen beds (one of the 4 is a sofa sleeper), there are only 3 bedrooms with queen beds (the upstairs room has a queen bed & queen sofa sleeper in the same room). It “worked” for our 4 families because one of the 4 family’s was a single parent/child combination that worked well in the room with the trundle bed. The best view in the house from the upstairs bedroom unfortunately wasn’t available because the hurricane shutter doesn’t work and it is stuck in the closed position ?.
In general the house was in disarray upon our arrival (there were some clothes and personal property in some rooms and not in others) and the overall cleanliness was not what I was expecting for the price I paid (the carpets could use cleaning, better organization of the house as a whole – there were books, games, and various items seemingly spread throughout the house without rime nor reason…). There lots of flashlights & battery operated lanterns in the main hall closet, however none of them had working batteries ?. Seating on the deck for dinner was great (citronella candles provided in the main hall closet to ward off bugs – which were never a problem for us during our stay…), as was the use of the sea kayak, snorkeling equipment, and lots & lots of beach toys for the children (this was a big & unexpected plus…). The bathrooms were clean, but the water pressure in each of the bathrooms left A LOT to be desired… The complementary bottle of wine for our first night was an unexpected treat ? !
Although I could not rate this house close to a 5 star resort, neither would I place it on the other end of the spectrum either (it’s NOT a “dump”), rather I would rate it middle of the road (I would have given it a 2 ½ star rating out of the possible 5 as opposed to the 3 star rating provided above if I could have).
The sunsets were BEAUTIFUL from the deck, we collected many, many sharks teeth while beach combing, and observed dolphins, rays, and numerous birds from either the deck or while walking on shore. We did take home many wonderful memories, we had a great time, but probably would not choose this house again for our next trip.
Owner's Response: All the deficiencies identified have been rectified including the carpets, storm shutter and organization of the house.
