Owner's Response: We are so sorry! But, the whole time you were there we didn't hear a peep out of you or anyone in your group. Why no one let us know is beyond our comprehension. We always tell our guests that we are available 24/7. We are locally owned and operated and we always have staff on call to respond to any need our guests may have. We would have been happy to respond to your complaints and we would have gladly moved you to another home. We only knew about the problem when you checked out and then said that the bedroom smelled and you had shut the door and didn't use it. Gosh we would have liked to have known and remedied the situation rather than having the bedroom closed up and with heat going in there it did smell when we opened the door. Turns out the water spigot outside the bedroom was leaking and after having to remove the carpet and pad and call a plumber to repair the leak, all is well now, but if we would have known sooner all that could have been avoided! Your group could have had a nice place to stay and we could have avoided a soaking wet carpet and added expense to the owner. Please, if you do choose to return, and for everyone else reading this PLEASE let us know when you encounter issues with any of our homes! Thanks! And we are so sorry.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed this lovely home, it has the old world charm with many new conveniences. The view is absolutely spectacular. We had perfect weather including a wind storm at night and beautiful sunlight during the day. The walk to the beach is close and well maintained. The house is so unique; wide open living space with books and treasures throughout, the kitchen is crazy fun to work in, the large bedroom with the reading nest is a great escape and the bathrooms are updated. The house was clean right down to the BBQ. Loved the covered porch! We didn't want to leave! We are coming back soon!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time! My daughter and grandkids stayed in one side and my fiance and I in the other. Dowd House provided lots of space for everyone, with the option of either privacy or togetherness; the internal door separating the two properties was great, we didn't have to go outside to visit between places. Both kitchens were adequately stocked, the furniture and bedding were nicely appointed, and the units were very clean and ready when we arrived. We had a small issue trying to figure out how to work the upstairs shower (operator error - nothing wrong with the shower), and a quick call to Bayshore Rentals resolved the issue. We had a very nice stay, and we even got lucky with about a week of sunshine. Thanks Bayshore for another great place to stay for vacation, as always! We'll be back!

Reviewer Comments:

The location of this house is great. The views of the ocean are wonderful. The older side of the house is quite dark, even with so many windows. It also has an old/musty smell. There are a LOT of decorative items in the house and old 70s style furniture. I felt like we were staying in a thrift store. The cabinets where the dishes are kept smells horrible - I didn't use any dishes or utensils without washing them first. There were also cobwebs in many places. The new side of the house is much nicer. We enjoyed the backyard and easy access to the beach a few door down.

Owner's Response: Dowd is an older home, we agree. It was built probably in the 1940's and we do advertise that it's older, also we feel the price reflects some of the deficiencies of the home. There's no excuse, however, about the smells and the dishes, although we have not had any complaints about smells before. Maybe we can find you another home next time that is more to your liking.

The Dowd House is perfect for us and our teenagers. Lots of bathrooms, bedrooms, and since we rent both sides, 2 laundry stations! The house is quirky and comfy. We just love it!

Small but comfortable. Tightly packed in amongst other rental homes. A lot of foot traffic through our yard and driveway. Pictures and description online need updating. Clean with everything you might need included except firewood. Rental company friendly and efficient.
