Not maintained

  • 2 of 5

While location was great there were several issues among which were a broken stovetop in the arrached apartment making it virtually useless. The property did not appear to have been kept up as it needed painting, new cabinets in some baths and several other updates. The large hot tub was not working and needed to be repaired while we were staying there

Owner's Response: The ceramic stove top in the 2nd kitchen in the attached apartment does have a very thin hairline crack in it but all burners are fully functional. The Swim Spa is intended to be a pool and not a "large hot tub". These guests had a lot of children who tried to set the heat to a higher setting, as if it were a hot tub instead of a heated pool, by mashing the control buttons. This actually caused the control panel to fail requiring an expensive replacement part and installation charge. The controls were replaced the next day after we were notified. As noted in a prior review we replaced some drawer slide tracks in one bathroom none of the other bathroom cabinets had any issues. Painting of rooms in the main living areas is scheduled for January during the off season.

House was spacious enough for our large family.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous week. The house was large enough to give us plenty of space for our large family. We encountered a few issues with a shower and the washing machine. We called and they addressed the issues promptly. Only real complaint was the condition of of several drawers in kitchen and bathrooms that fell apart when opened and the stove top in the owner’s appt. was cracked, so we were afraid to use it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! We do try to handle things in a timely manner. Since your stay we have fixed the kitchen drawers and the bathroom drawers that needed new slides. This tends to happen after a long year of rentals. However, now that things have slowed down we have had time to get in there and take care of these issues.

Owner's Response: Thank you Brenda for your 5 Star Review! We appreciate your kind words about your stay in The Surf Drive Beach House! Your comment "Excellent" is a tough one to live up to but we strive very hard to make sure everything is as expected when our guests arrive for their well deserved vacation. Yes as you noted with a 5,500 square foot house there may be minor issues but when we are notified we have our own maintenance men to handle whatever may be your concern. In your case it was one TV that needed a new cable box and you needed assistance accessing the wireless router. It was our pleasure serving you and we invite you to come back again next year and stay with us again!

Pros and Cons. It's all about the experience

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had an amazing weekend. The house was large enough to fit our family of 24. Direct access to the beach was definitely a plus! However, this house definitely has issues. The maintenance on the interior is not up to date by any means. The cabinets in the kitchen didn't close all the way, the doors to the bathrooms didn't shut properly, the water in the shower took forever to drain. The last day we were here the ceiling was leaking water which was due to the air conditioner. The hot tub wasn't working and the first 3 days we were there we had different maintenance people in and out of the house which was a huge inconvenience for us.

Excluding all these, We definitely we had a wonderful family time! Family is what it is all about for us and that fact that we could all be under one roof was ideal!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments especially where you said "Overall we had an amazing week. The house was large enough to fit our family of 24. Direct access to the beach was definitely a plus!" Unfortunately there is one cabinet drawer that won't close all the way and cannot be fixed. All of the doors to the bathrooms will now shut properly. The master bath shower had hair in the drain after your stay. We removed it and it now drains fine.. It was in the upper 90's the week you were here and the upstairs air conditioner compressor failed the last day you were here but it was replaced the next day when the part was shipped in overnight. The hot tub was working just fine when it was serviced, drained cleaned and refilled on Saturday before you checked in. Unfortunately, someone in your group pushed the wrong buttons on the controls and got it set in "sleep" mode it would circulate but not heat. This was fixed on Monday after you calles us.
