Great gathering spot!
We had a large group staying on the property for 4 nights and another large group staying down the street. We opened the garage doors downstairs and served meals to a group of 39 each evening and it was great! Tana was very responsive and helpful.
Dont swim in the pool
This is going to be long, but if you plan on taking kids, please read the entire post!!!!
The pros: the looked property nice, enough room to SLEEP only.
We showed up Friday at 4pm and the kids got in the pool immediately. After about 20 minutes, the kids start complaining that the pool water is burning their eyes. Then they all start itching and burning. We make them all get out and they these horrible rashes on their body. I contact the rental lady and ask if they recently shocked the pool. She said yes, they did that morning. I tell her that we should have been told. Any idiot who owns a pool knows you have to wait 24 hours before swimming. So we had 5 kids & 1 adult get chemical burns from that (including an infant). I send them pics of the kids rash.
On Saturday, she says they are sending over the "pool people" who is really just the owner who brings a test strip. He tests the pool and says "its within the limits". So, we figure the pool is safe now because it has been 24 hours by now since it was shocked. So all 5 kids are scared to swim now because their rashes are so bad, the infant has huge welts all over her. 6 preteen/teens get in the pool on Saturday and now they start itching and burning. Sure enough, they all get chemical burns too. Contact them again and they say the pool is safe. I dont know any person on the planet that would say the pool is safe when 12 people have chemical burns from the water. None of the older adults had the chemical burns, but kids from 19-infant were. I let them know again, and nothing was done.
The other thing, roaches EVERYWHERE outside. I dont mean just one or two, but you cannot sit outside and enjoy the hot tub, pool (assuming its safe to swim) the tiki bar, BBQ or the fire pit after the sun goes down. Large roaches crawling, flying, and just everywhere outside. We killed about 30 before we went inside. Then you could look out the window and see them crawling on everything.
TV stays on CH. 13, it wouldnt change.
DVD doesnt work.
Sleeps 18 well, but barely any actual seating inside. Chairs and swings outside are broken with splinters and nails sticking out.
So, you cant swim in the pool, you cant go outside after dark, and everyone has to stay inside with nowhere to sit and watch channel 13...we were able to hook up an XBOX and play games. Thank GOD one of the teenagers brought his.
Family yearly vacation
Everything was great. Plenty sleeping space for everyone. The owner was amazing and let us check in early. The only downfall was the pool chemicals were a little strong. The location was great. Everyone in our group loved the house and the hot tub was perfect for relaxing in. The neighborhood was very quiet. We will be back again soon.
My family's mini-vacation
Check-in was very rocky. 4:00 p.m. came and went and we were still waiting in the heat on the driveway of the property! Ended up waiting 20 minutes. When you have an established check-in time, you should be there on your property.at that exact time or a little earlier. We had actually arrived at 3:45 p.m. When the owner finally arrived at 4:20 p.m., she was very quarrelsome. Don't like arguing with the owner before we even enter the property. After that miserable start to our vacation, my family did enjoy their time at the property. We visited the beach twice and had a lot of fun there! The beach was a short drive from the property.
There were only two other comments made - roach city at night and old futon mattresses were very uncomfortable. Overall my family enjoyed their time at the property.
The house is beautiful, very clean, kitchen has all the essentials for cooking, having a pool and hot tub was amazing, yard is very spacious for kids to play, teens enjoyed the game room, about 7 blocks from the beach, and the manager is super nice and helpful. Hoping to comeback again!
Great place for a family gathering!
The house was very nice.We had a great time over the weekend.Amy met us there and walked us through the house and showed us where everything was.There was so much room and so many beds.Unfortunately for us the cold front came in so we didn’t get to enjoy the out doors,but we defiantly enjoyed the indoors.we will more than likely be coming back very soon.Well worth the money.We’ve rented from this area many times before and I gotta say this is the first time we actually get to meet and talk to the owner.Thank you Amy!
