Okay house. Inaccurate main picture.

  • 3 of 5

My stay was from July 15-July 18, 2016.

Pros:

-The stay was comfortable because of the air conditioners located in every room of the house.

-Nice long dinner table.

-Comfortable leather couch.

-Working 'Direct TV' satellite tvs in living room, master bedroom, and 1 upstairs bedroom.

-WiFi is present.

-Washer and dryer in the 1st floor bathroom.

-Many towels, I'd guess and say there are 15 to 18 towels.

-Directly on the corner and only one block walk to beach (south) or to the calm bay water (north).

-House has a lot of beach chairs, toys, body boards, large beach umbrellas.

-Two indoor showers and one outdoor shower.

-Large outdoor wooden table/metal frame with 6 outdoor chairs and umbrella for table.

-Gas grill with more than enough gas tanks. I didn't use it because I like cooking with charcoal.

Cons:

-The main picture of the listing with the red cushion seats and hot tub is very old. Picture must be from when everything was new. THERE IS NO HOT TUB! Owner said hot tub was broken and removed. And, the two small cushion back-less seats are missing from the house. However, all the other pictures depicting the rooms, bathrooms and living room are 100% accurate. Only one change... the fire pit is different but the one they have at the house now is better than the one in the picture.

-The freezer is only as cold as the fridge. Owner said it needs to be fixed but that obviously was no help to me. Ice cream melted. I planned on buying multiple bags of ice to keep in the freezer to avoid walking 6 blocks to the market every day I needed ice for the cooler but that fell through because of the broken freezer.

-They have 4 bicycles but only 2 work and 1 of those need air in the tires.

-Leftover sand on the couch in living room from previous vacationers.

-Many pots, pans, cups, trays are dirty. So dirty they looked like they weren't used in months. I guess now more are clean because we cleaned many.

-Dog hair found in pots and stove. Also, the filter of the dryer when I cleaned it was full of dog hair.

-This is obviously a con for every house on the island: Spiders had to be killed daily in the bathrooms. We tried keeping the doors and windows closed at all times.

Conclusion: I think that for the price I paid the fridge should have been in perfect working order. I also didn't like being mislead about the hot tub. Owner said that "hot tub" wasn't listed as an amenity. They shouldn't use old pictures.

With broken fridge, would not recommend. Fix pls.

Owner's Response: The fridge is working perfectly. It was 100 degrees out. And it was being opened every five min.

Bachelorette weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Although one of the bedrooms smelled like smoke, the rest of the house was clean and the rooms were perfect for our bachelorette party. The location was ideal, just a block away from the beach and a few blocks away from restaurants, coffee shop in the morning and the ferry/water taxi. With enough beds for all of the girls we were able to comfortably fit with all of our luggage. The grill worked great for lunch during the day and the kitchen was a good size to make breakfast in. I would recommend this house to girls looking to get away.

great weekend stay for 11 girls!

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for a weekend getaway of a bunch of girls! 7 minute walk from the ferry- 2 minute walk from the beach!

Amanda was very sweet and there were a ton of extra towels and sheets etc. Extremely relaxing weekend and I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a nice getaway. Great outdoor area and perfect grill !

Horrible, dirty, smelled

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival, there was sand all over the floors. The "clean" sheets were filthy and stained. We have pictures. The master bedroom wreaked of smoke (owners knew we were bringing children). Stains, dust, dirt, sand, mess everywhere. Couch in living room - stained. They should be ashamed of themselves. Stains on sheets. No way worth that kind of money in autumn. We wouldn't let our kids sleep in the beds. So bad, we left after the first night - didn't stay the second night. Smell of "smoke" was overwhelming. Complete nightmare.

Good value and great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here as part of a long weekend with 4 couples. The house is relatively new, clean and fully stocked with the basics (towels, pillows, paper towels, etc.). The location is ideal as it's only a short walk to the ferry and is a good value for those looking to get away for a short trip. The owner is very responsive and reasonable and is able to help assist on any ad hoc questions that you may have. I would recommend to others.
