Beautiful home with decent size rooms and a short walk from the beach

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of renting this property for Memorial Day weekend and it was everything my group and I could have wished for. The property had a great kitchen and dining area. The rooms were of average size and each accommodated 2 people comfortably. The property also had plenty of outdoor seating and a nice deck, perfect for BBQing and eating outside. The owner was also nice enough to allow us to utilize the bicycles on the property as well as the beach chairs located by the deck. Amanda was very responsive and her home fit our needs perfectly. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to have a relaxing weekend by the beach.

The house was not accurately described online

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

1 - The house was a short walk from the beach and the ferry

2 - I went with a group of girls for a bachelorette and it rained the first day so we spent the day in the house. The living room is a perfect size for 8-10 girls to hang out in, it didn't feel cramped at all.

Cons:

1 - The house was short one bed from what was listed online.

2 - The master bedroom downstairs reeks of old cigarette smoke. We febreezed and lit candles and no matter what, the smell is overwhelming.

3 - The pictures show a hot tub. There is no hot tub.

4 - We were advised to bring as much food as possible over with us instead of buying it there because of how expensive it is on the island. So we brought coolers of food and supplies only to find the fridge full of the owners own food that we couldn't move. So we had to squeeze ours in

5 - The owner's daughter also came by unannounced in the middle of the day to get a credit card she had left in the room. She didn't knock on either the front door or the bedroom door to get what she needed and walked in on our friend who was changing.

6 - The toilets are very sensitive and don't always work

7 - Enough hot water for one or two showers in a row and then it's cold

Owner's Response: there are so many untruths to the above comment. There is enough hot water for 6-8 people obviously depending on how long you shower. The downstairs toilet needs to be held down the lever for two seconds. This does not constitute plumbing problems. As far as the cigarette smoke no one has ever smoked in there it was my clothing. It has been removed and the room has been painted. Regarding my daughter, I texted the renters asking if she could get her credit card. they never responded. My daughter waited outside for 20 minutes but still no response. She walked in after knocking and they were eating dinner. Not changing as the review says. The hot tub was mentioned that it was not working it was never featured as an amenity. As far as the food in the refrigerator, I put my food in the drawers and leave the four shelves free. I am sorry the above renter was so disgruntled, everything was exaggerated.

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.

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 !
