Wonderful stay in Irish Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Irish Beach! We left a message at the rental house regarding our stay; we did not find an evaluation form to complete.

Please let me know when you will refund our security deposit.

Thank you,

Maxine Smith

The Ocean View - WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for our lovely stay in your Manchester beach house. What a wonderful way to start the New Year. This house has the most amazing ocean view. We had reservations to go out for dinner ~ but chose to stay in the house and clink our champagne with the setting sun. It was so beautiful!

The house is very comfortable. There were a few things that could be fixed, changed or added ~ the second bedroom on the left side of the house didn't have heat ~ brrrrrr! ~ but, over all ~ this house had everything we needed. There is a COMPLETE kitchen with everything that a cook might want. There are comfortable beds, a great fire place that adds character to dining ~ sitting ~ even watching t.v.!, and two tables and chairs on the porch. The porch is amazing. It surrounds the house so that you can see ocean from the entire front of the house. We would love to go back!

Beautiful views!!!

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with this property. The deck and the view were the high point! There were a few fixes that I will recommend to the owner but nothing major. The kitchen was very well stocked and we had everything we needed. Everything else made our stay very comfortable. The weather couldn't have been better. We saw lot's of wildlife.The beach was wonderful and the dog especially loved it! I would definitely stay here again. It was a great family getaway.

Awesome View, which is #1 to me. Nice house

  • 4 of 5

It was lovely, we really enjoyed our stay!!

However, may I please make two suggestions?

1. New deck furniture would be greatly appreciated. They make some really wonderful, extremely sturdy Plastic/resin? based patio furniture that really stands up to weather and comes with pads that are stored inside.

2. The Gravel that goes all the way up to the steps to the deck is very troublesome. Luggage and Coolers with wheels don't work and some things are quite heavy. Also, my 92 year old mother fell and injured herself which I'm quite sure wouldn't have been the case if it was paved.

Lovely home, lovely view,

Thank You!!

Incredible View

  • 3 of 5

The view is spectacular! The home is very comfortable and dog friendly. There are many sliding glass doors for easy in and out from all angles. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and staples. We were glad that we took our own deck chairs. The charcoal BBQ was new but the patio furniture was not really usable. Overall great trip, nice place for the price and certainly pet friendly which was most important to us. We would stay again.

Peaceful Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first time using a vacation rental and everything went perfectly! The home was peaceful and perfect. None of us could think of anything we would change about the home. The owners responded to all my questions and always gave clear answers and directions. We used this home to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and she was over the top happy with everything. She didn't know anything about the place until we pulled into the driveway. She loves to crochet and brought it and didn't work on it once the whole time we were there. No tv either. We didn't even miss it either. We spent a lot of time in the deck. The view is the best! We saw vultures, hawks, seals, bunnies and deer. The beach access was easy and not crowded. We plan on staying here every year and starting a new tradition. So thankful for this family opening up their home to us.
