a wonderful week right on the beach in a warm and well equipped house with a great owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week with my 90 year old mother. The house is right on the beach with great views, even when just sitting on the deck (the lower level) and even my 90 year old mother who has trouble walking was able to get out and sit on the beach each day. The owner, John, is so friendly and helpful. I mentioned we were a few wineglasses short and voila with a half hour, he had purchased more wine glasses and then even some more the next day (in a different style!). He also told me I had a flat tire and came back with an aerosol can to fix my tire, which it did perfectly. I was floored! The kitchen is very well equipped, not like some houses that skimp on these things. It was quiet, restful and beautiful. I even had a few good swims at the beginning of October. There were some very nice restaurants not too far away, but also convenient shopping to eat at home. I liked the beach, nautical motif throughout--perfect for vacation lightheartedness. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Nice property. Beautiful location.

Only problem was leakage when it rained.

Had to use the towels we had to rent to soak up flooding. Would be better if owner either fixed the problem or provided towels for this situation so that we did not damage the rented ones.

Owner's Response: Amy B., your stay of May 11th doesn't quite match the name of the family that was staying during that time frame. That family has returned to the house multiple times. This May there has been a fair amount of rain. Using the word "flooding", I think, is a bit over the top. We recently became aware of one of the glider Anderson windows that needed attention and we committed $1,300 to an Anderson window distributor that will be installing a storm window in the very near future. We also have to keep an eye on the slider track that the drain holes don't fill up with sand. If you had simply called, texted or emailed us, we would have sent someone immediately to address the problem....and I believe the weekend that you were there, we did just that. It's sad that with the state of world that we live in that you chose to focus on putting a negative review out instead of focusing on how blessed you are to have spent Mother's Day weekend on the beach with some of your loved ones. All the best, John & Diane
