                                                    The beach access was amazing and the views spectacular. We liked being close to the lifeguard station and having such amazing views. Spectacular. The kitchen was well equipped. The home smelled musty and we did clean regularly - but found a lot of sand (from previous tenants) under the couches and beds. The bath smelled and I couldn't scrub it away. The rugs were filthy. I didn't call about the cleaning as I didn't get great responsiveness from the call about our tv not working. There was a tub of linens in the driveway. We didn't order them or use them. We called in about the main tv not working and no one came out due to storm preparations. We were 24 hours without tv in the main living area - with a major storm coming in. We never got the tv (very old) in the one bedroom to work either. Disappointing service. We weren't sure if cable was down or we hit a wrong key. We never got help. After waiting for hours - we spent two hours time checking on it all ourselves - since no one helped us - we got it going. Not how we wanted to spend time on vacation. Nor did we want to be without storm updates! The washer dryer is on the lower level in a locked space. I was surprised by that. The dishwasher is facing the eating area. Both great to have and obvious add ons that aren't in the most convenient spaces. The cabin is small. But I was happy to have them. It's a rustic beach cabin. With amazing views. With great access. At a reasonable price. With air conditioning! So the rest is a matter of conveniences that are important to you. Cleanliness (I can clean - it didn't work) and the mustiness/odors were killing my allergies. The lack of responsiveness for the tv with a storm coming was a grave concern and was not handled. TVs are easy to mess up with all the wires, remotes and tech. Not ok! The front storm door was hard to close in the storm. Or use! The doormats had sharp

                                                    Dear Barbara, Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts about LA DOLCE FAR NIENTE! I certainly do apologize for the issues you had with the television and I am glad you finally pressed the right buttons to make it work properly. Hurricane prep does consume our staff as life safety is always our top priority.

                                                    The description and photos were an accurate account of the house. Definitely dated, a few changes could really 'cute' the place up a bit but otherwise it was comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. Be careful with the kitchen drawers, as it would be easy to pull them all the way out. The blender was broken and the dishwasher is on the wrong side of the counters (see photos) but otherwise the kitchen was serviceable. The cottage is located right next to the public right of way so it does get a bit busy on that part of the beach but it was tolerable. The life guards chair is stationed here as well which I always find comforting! The covered porch facing the beach was one of the best parts of the house. We spent many hours looking at the sea, watching a fabulous storm and enjoying the outside. The queen size bed was very comfortable with nice pillows. The most important factor of this house was it's proximity to the beach so we were happy. We could easily go back and forth to the house for a break or lunch etc which is what makes the whole experience so much more relaxing. Dogs are allowed, so I would say the house was clean when we arrived although the previous white, fluffy, fido hair balls were blown from under furniture etc by the AC! Again, not a big deal, as you are sweeping up the sand that always manages to sneak in anyway. There's a hose pipe near the front porch to easily wash the sand off as you come off the beach and an outdoor shower which makes it very handy to get the whole family clean without much waiting (given that there are two bathrooms inside as well). The experience is exactly what we expected with location being the key. Thanks for a great holiday!

It was also fun being able to watch everyone arrive on the beach since a beach access is right next to the cottage.
