Graduation weekend.

  • 4 of 5

The upstairs was very nice, but the lower level had a amp odor that you had to get used to. The house was a little older than I had anticipated but had every amenity you needed. The pool was perfect, lots of seating, loved the huge TV. We felt very comfortable for the most part. Just be careful in the basement as the ceilings were very low. We had a great stay. Lots to do in the area also.

A pleasant house and pool and directly across the street from a nice beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was very pleasant for us (2 adults, 3 kids) plus other family (2 adults).

The pool was very nice and the kids had a great time spending multiple hours every day enjoying the warm water (pool is heated).

We did not use the outdoor theater except to stream music, but the setup looks very nice.

The kitchen has every utensil and pot / pan that you might need for pretty much any meal. A HUGE plus, was that there are GOOD knives (most rental houses seem to have horrible knives that make cutting potatoes very difficult). My only "complaint" so to speak was that there were zero kitchen items like aluminum foil and plastic wrap. Plus oddly - given that it is a rental - there were almost no spices (other than salt / pepper), where commonly left behind spices are typically retained. This was a small issue, but I did miss NOT having aluminum foil.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words Bob. The house was in great condition after you left - we appreciate that. Thanks also for your suggestion to include additional items such as aluminum foil. We have acted on that and added foil to the list of items we stock for our guests. We generally keep condiments and other kitchen items that prior guests have left in the house and pass these forward for future guests. We do the same with pool/beach items such as floats, boogie boards, chairs and beach toys. We ask guests to hold off buying these items until they get to the house to see what is there. Contact us directly in the future if you plan another visit so we can offer a repeat guest discount. Sincerely, Kim and Dave

We had an amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

My cousin, her husband and I took 9 high school senior on their spring break and had an amazing time. The house was everything in the description plus. We never wanted to leave once we arrived. It was our own slice of heaven for 1 week. The location was prefect, the pool is awesome, projection tv, and sound system. The e home owners are wonderful people. Anytime we had questions the homeowners where available to answer them. Everything you could possibly need during our stay was at the house. Some life memories where made during our stay. Can't wait to go back !!!

Senior spring break trip!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, everything was perfect. The kids loved the basement and got a kick out of the height of the ceiling. We played in the pool every day and only went to the beach one day because the privacy of the pool and the backyard was too awesome. The kitchen was well stocked with absolutely everything you could need for cooking. There were plenty of bath towels, beach towels, beach play toys (boogie boards, etc.), pool chairs and beach chairs for all 12 of us. Kim was absolutely accommodating for all of our needs. She answered all of our questions in a prompt manner. The location to town center and to the grocery store was perfect. Looking forward to seeing the future house! And....I recommend the nachos at La Ola! We ordered the large nachos and the three of us could only finish half of the plate! The plate was as big as the table! Thanks, Kim, for everything.

Owner's Response: Dawn Thank you for your kind words. I am truly happy that you and the family had a great time. As soon as I know details of the rebuild I will advise. Hopefully every one has their act together and we start July 1st. You will be one of the first to know. If all goes as planned it will be ready for the next season. Have a great summer and I look forward to seeing you again in the spring. Kim

Owner's Response: Doug. I am happy you had a good vacation. I am sorry I was not able to meet you and your family. Next year the house will be different. Look for new pictures to come. We are rebuilding and adding a new pool. Should be finished in time for the holidays next year.

Great location and nice amenities for family groups

  • 4 of 5

The two level "duplex" home is unique, and was well suited for our family. The location is great - close enough to walk to Time Square, but not totally in the middle of the heaviest tourist traffic. An easy walk across the street to the beach, view of the interior canal from the back porch, and an on site pool with privacy fence gave us balanced choices depending on the mood and the weather. The home is not new and/or flashy, but the owners have provided thoughtful amenities that made our stay wonderful. Well equipped kitchen, grill on the deck, floats for the pool, beach towels and chairs, large flat screen TV's and more, provide a great headquarters for our one week vacation with adult children. The low - ceiling finished lower level was ideal for our oldest son and his wife, since it has a bedroom, and living space, including kitchenette, that gave them their own apartment within the larger unit. Tall folk will find the lower level challenging. Overall a great experience, and pleasant owner that was happy to assist with any questions.
