Great house. Could use some major updating on patio furniture, really old and seems to be falling apart. The kitchen could use some new pots and pans and cooking utensils. Great location and very clean though.

Perfect for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we could have hoped for; indeed " A Bit of Paradise"! It was beautiful and roomy enough to accommodate our large family. The lovely deck was utilized every evening. The beach was a quick walk across the street. The children loved the "bunk room"! The entire family loved the house! We hope to return in the future!

Unbeatable location...smallest amount of TLC needed

  • 4 of 5

Pros: The location of this property is really unbeatable because you get the best of both worlds--beach and boat. It's across the street from the beach (you can hear waves crashing from the front porch). The beach is privately owned by the HOA so it is not crowded at all ever--SO NICE! It's a long walk, but you can walk all the way down to the Back Porch from this beach. The property has two boat slips and we rented a pontoon from Boogies that we kept at the house all week, which was fantastic. Beach in the mornings, sunset cruise in the evenings all without needing to drive anywhere. The homes across the street from the beach are a MUCH better value than beachfront, plus you get canal access. Bring a wagon to haul your stuff to the beach. The main floor of the house is really nice and comfortable. It was very clean and well-kept and the furniture is nice and beds very comfy. Towels and sheets were in perfect condition. We loved the front porch swing, although it was a little worn out (see Cons). Be aware that the bottom floor bunk room has two doors that go directly outside (possible safety issue for kids) and that the only set of stairs down there is a steep spiral metal staircase. An older person could not manage this. That wasn't such a big deal for us. The grill is not brand new but works fine.

Cons: The outdoor furniture is is serious need of replacing. A lot of it was broken, cushions torn, etc. We overlooked this and had fun anyway, but this is really too nice of a deck to neglect. Also, the plants and general landscaping in the back where the patio and boat slips are in need of replacing. They have automatic sprinklers but other than that this area has obviously had no care for quite some time. Also, the downstairs game room and bedrooms have no windows at all, meaning it is pitch black in there and the lighting is really bad. It also smells really mildewy/musty downstairs. Again, this could easily be fixed. Vanity stool in master bath is missing and there was an issue with the toilet downstairs not flushing properly, which is a problem if you have 5 teenagers!

Even with the cons, I would definitely rent this property again because of the location and the overwhelming positives. I hope they fix all of that!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this home. It is amazing!!!! The decor is beautiful, it provides a boat slip. We thoroughly enjoyed that. It is straight stairs for older folks.
