My husband, toddler and parents all enjoyed a week vacation at this property last week. It was a very clean and comfortable house, just as described. The location was excellent, on the north end of the island close (easy walking distance) to many shops and restaurants. We walked to the City Pier and enjoyed the bay beach just a few houses up the street daily. We did have our car with us but were able to leave it behind and take the trolly at the pier to beaches and restaurants along the island with no worries about parking several times. The pool was solar heated and my favorite feature of the house. It has a shallow area perfect for my 3 year old. We spent much of our time in the pool and the loungers on that lower deck (the yard is lovely). The grill was very clean and we put it good use. There is a room in the garage with boogie boards, beach chairs, noodles and a few kids' beach toys. I will note that the ensuite master bathroom has the small sink in the shower area, which, although odd, I had noted was properly represented in the pictures prior to renting. It was a total non issue for us but I think bears noting in advance for anyone who may have missed that detail in the pictures. We didn't watch TV (there was cable) but did rent some Redbox DVDs and the played them in the living room. The flat screen TV and DVD player worked flawlessly. My son also enjoyed playing his first ever rounds of Candyland, as the rental had this game. We only found 3 beach/pool towels while there but I'm sure that will be addressed right away. Otherwise there were plenty of towels and the washer/dryer worked perfectly. We didn't see a blender, which my family happens to use daily at home but we got along just fine without it. The house has a binder full of local area information, helpful for planning
The property managers were very good with us. They were flexible to let us rent a Monday to Monday, rather than the standard Saturday to Saturday. They also sent someone within an hour to help us get back into the beach gear room after we accidently locked ourselves out. Additionally, due to our late arrival (after their business hours), they came to the property and gave us the keys and local information. I was initially hesitant to rent from a property management company, as my VRBO rentals in the past have always been done directly with the homeowner, but this was a great experience and a great property.
