Has everything you need
We had an enjoyable stay at the house last month. It was great to not have to worry about bringing all of the extras (paper products, dishes, cookware, towels, beach goods, etc.). We just had to do a quick store run for food but otherwise everything else was provided. The house had enough room for our family of 4 and we liked having our own bathroom. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood with easy access to 1A; we were at Scarborough beach in less than 15 minutes. Nancy was responsive to questions and easy to work with. We would consider renting here again in the future.
Very Comfortable and has many things so you don't have to bring them with you.
The home itself was wonderful. The central air was very much appreciated, since it was very hot when we were there. I really liked that things such as dishwasher soap and detergent for the laundry and even plastic wrap and food storage bags were provided. There were sand toys and beach towels to take to the beach. I appreciated the washer and dryer and all the towels. Overall the house was very clean upon arrival.
However, this home needs some TLC. The bathrooms are outdated and need to be updated badly. For example, the shower head and the pipe, fell off in the shower when someone was taking a shower. The yard needs attention, there is a place to sit, but it is not at all inviting or taken care of. That's because they are out in the weather all the time, and it shows. The furniture in the living room should be replace as it isn't very comfortable. It has hardwood and tile floors except for the stairs, and they are stained and dirty.
I would say overall I would give it 3.5 stars, but because of the positives that we did appreciate, I gave it 4.
Lastly, the location isn't the greatest. You DO have to drive everywhere you want to go. It is located in a strictly residential community. Getting around meant getting in and out of the car. Not something I am fond of.
I'm glad you enjoyed all the amenities included with the rental. Thank you for your suggestions.Since your stay we have replaced the shower head and the faucet in the master bathroom. The living room couches are only 5 years old but definitely are in need of new covers and we are in the process of replacing them. Unfortunately the outdoor furniture cushions are left outside all summer but are replaced every year. The carpeted stairs are steam cleaned at the beginning of the season and then vaccumed and spot cleaned weekly. Thanks again for your suggestions . We definitely appreciate them.
Has become our home away from home!
We have just returned from our 4th year staying at this wonderful house. This house is perfect for my children & I (now 6 & 9) and is always so welcoming & comfortable! The rooms are great size, everything that you could possibly need is there and it is an easy ride to all beaches & towns. I love the fenced in yard for my children to play in and having the washer/dryer on the main floor is SO convenient for throwing in beach towels & suits after a day at the beach. Nancy has got to be one of the nicest people that you will ever rent from!! I have already sent in my dates for 2015!!
Great vacation home
My family and I rented this house from 7-30-11 to 8-6-11... I was very please with the rental... I have a 3yr old and having the backyard fenced in was just perfect... It was great knowing that she could go outside to play and could get out of the yard... I also loved the fact that the doors beeped everytime someone came in or out of the house. The house was full of everything 1 could possibly need to have a wonderful vacation. I would highly reccomend and would love to rent in the future:)
Wonderful house & fabulous vacation!!!
We absolutely LOVED staying at this house. It was so comfortable & lovely - exactly what I was looking for!! The perfect size & everything that you need is provided!! My kids & I were so comfortable, I think we slept better than we have ever!! I loved having the fenced in yard so that the kids could go outside & play and I didn't need to worry at all. We had the greatest weather & were able to enjoy the beaches every day!! Truly, the only negative part was that we couldn't stay longer
Our heartfelt thanks to Nancy who was so friendly and easy to talk to. The house was first class all the way and every detail was taken care of right down to the chilled glasses in the freezer! Neighbors were friendly and it was close to everything we wanted or needed. We relaxed, got to the beach every day and truly enjoyed our stay. My only regret is that we didn't book long enough!!"
