Close to the beach, lots of space. Only a few minor issues.

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 8 traveling to AMI to spend a week (we're still here, leaving on the 15th). I wasn't sure what to expect from the pictures provided, other than it looked like there was enough space for all of us to eat and be comfortable while we were here. In this regard, we weren't disappointed. The kitchen was stocked with pans/utensils, the beds were as advertised and there was plenty of seating options. One thing I wish we had known before we came was that there at least 7-8 beach towels already here. We ended up bringing our own and dedicated a whole carry-on just for that. Also, the garage has about 5 serviceable lawn chairs and a few rusty old school type chairs that could potentially be used. There are also a few umbrellas and 2 kayaks in there. If you're thinking about renting or buying chairs...don't. The carpet and the sectional are dingy and could use some deep cleaning, but being so close to the beach I don't expect it to be spotless.

On to my minor gripes:

-Shower head in the master bathroom was detached and just hanging there. We had to reattach it. It also looks like they used electrical tape for...something?!?

-This house is plagued with electrical gremlins. Lights turn off and on randomly, by themselves. Sometimes when the AC kicks, sometimes not.

-A day after pest control came and sprayed the property, I found a bug crawling on my forehead while sleeping in the master bedroom. After inspecting the floor under the window and finding 4-5 more that appeared to be dying, and then looking on the window sill itself and seeing insect wings, I am pretty confident that what we found were termites. Yeah...probably common in these parts, but still, it wasn't the best way to wake up in the morning.

Other than that, we were pleased. It's a short walk to the beach, Walgreens is 1 block away. Mr Bones BBQ is like a 3 minute walk away, if that. The house is centrally located so you're in the middle of everything. There's also a trolley stop across the street.
