Such a great house!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I walked into the house I felt so lucky to have found it. So well kept and bright I knew me and my friends would be comfortable staying there. Every night we ate dinner on the back patio, love the huge table! The speaker system throughout the house was a great way to listen to music and a nice feature you don't normally see. Everyone loved the outdoor shower as well. The house comes with everything you need to head to the beach. every day we loaded up the beach trolley, filled the cooler and enjoyed the incredible weather we had. I grew up spending summers on the Connecticut shoreline but none of my friends had ever been there. They loved that you walked out the front door and could see the water.

We rented paddle boards at Action Sports who will bring them right to the beach for you. Don't forget to go to go to Christys for pancakes!

Sarah couldn't have made herself more available when I had questions. I had a great week and hope to repeat the same vacation next year! I like a house that you feel comfortable in and this one is like that.

Nice but needs a few things

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at your home at Chalker Beach from August 13th to August 20th. It is a lovely home with a very nice patio off the back slider. The Kitchen is well supplied even with some paper goods. I believe the wording in VRBO was totally renovated inside and out. Anyone staying there knows this not to be true when viewing the granite counter top you see the rusted places on the sink that was not repaired or changed. Appliances are older but usable. You specifically state that your home is not handicap accessible. I am not handicapped but had my knee replaced 3 years ago and handle stairs and walks. But your description of “steps to the beach” is a bit of a stretch. Four house and large lot and then turning to pass 4-6 houses depending upon which beach access you use. Maybe VRBO has a definition for “steps to the water” that would help all of us be fair. Then in your redone home there is 4-6 inch drops from several rooms with no warnings and the first step to go upstairs is very steep (I'm unsure of building codes but this is a stretch). Then the slope on the upper stairs was very steep and my six foot tall husband banged his head on the ceiling going up and down till he got the hang of it. One of the most annoying thing was having to bring all our own linens. Houses in your price range all supply linens in our many years of experience. The beds and mattresses were wonderful and we did appreciate them. The front “sitting room” had only one chair and a bench with no back. I guess you were to sit alone. It is difficult to be too accurate because weeks ago when we tried to refer back the your write up for the advertisement, but you had removed it, “to save money since all the weeks were all filled”. The home was clean and parking was adequate. Small fans in the rooms were a nice addition.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our home. We have some comments/answers to some of the renter's comments. 1. Yes, there is a small step in the kitchen and the family room. We bought the house that way. We will make sure that future renters will be informed of this step in our welcome documents. 2. Our home is truly "steps to the beach" - situated exactly 0.1 miles to the closet beach (which is also documented in our ad). We actually timed the walk, which took us 2 minutes and that was with children in tow and pushing a beach cart. 3. Renter was aware that we don't provide linens. If there was an issue with our policy, we would have been happy to work something out with them. 4. The wording on our listing does NOT say TOTALLY renovated - it states the home was recently renovated. It was brought down to the studs and sheet rocked and freshly painted. Almost every piece of furniture in the house is also new, including the beds. Additionally, there was no rust near the sink, although it could be confused as such as the granite does possess rustic tones. Lastly, our home is up to code, including the riser on the steps to the master suite. 5. As far as not being able to view our listing on VRBO or Homeaway we didn't renew our policy right away as we were not sure if we were going to list with them in 2017. When the renter inquired and asked for pictures 10 days prior to their stay, we redirected them to our Craigslist ad, which is identical to the one on Homeaway (Later on, we actually received an email from the renter that stated "Thank you - my wife greatly appreciates the pictures.") 6. Yes the sitting room does only have one chair as it is a very small room and it is the perfect spot to get away and read and have a cup of coffee or a drink. There is plenty of seating in the family room and kitchen, as well as the spacious patio in the back yard and the front deck.

Awesome Family Getaway Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of 5! It was beautifully decorated. You felt like you were living at the beach but in an updated home! Plenty of large bedrooms, TV's in practically every room, large eat in kitchen, perfect backyard to eat and for young children to play and feel safe as it was fenced in. The home was steps from the private beach and association which was perfect for us with young children. The activities for the kids were great. This home had everything we needed for the week! The owners were so helpful and friendly before, during and after! We would rent this home again in a heart beat!
