We always enjoy our stay here. Great house, great location! Amy does a great job!!
The location was great however the home was tired and old. The kitchen needed an overhaul, the silverware had dried food on it. there was rice in the sink from the previous renter, the pots and pans were grimy, the countertops were dirty, the pillowcase had stains on it. There was no bath mat in the bathroom, what was called a "breezeway" was a musty storage room that was dark and without air conditioning. There were no blinds next to the dining room table windows, the fans remained on all the time with no ability to shut them off. The outside lights remained on from dusk till past dawn always shining thru the broken bedroom blinds. The pool had a safety gate around it so you really could not sit out next to the pool and enjoy it. I was never able to open the sliders to the outside anyway. The garage was very small and smelled moldy. There was no front door except a iron gate and anybody could walk up and look into the living room. There were at least three lights out in the kitchen. The only positive thing was the handyman came right away, went to Loews and purchased light bulbs and replaced them. He returned the next day as the TV didn't work properly. This was my not my first experience with a vacation rental but it was my first bad experience. The pictures of the house and the actual place don't really match.
Rented during October for a surprise 60th birthday celebration for mom and relatives from California.
Pro: Definitely was a nice location and a very open area with lots of space for many people. Rented the house for 4 days and was more than pleased with the amount of space and the uniqueness of the house. There was a welcoming package for us when we arrived and the instructions made it easy to figure out what we needed to do for checking in and checking out, as well as, finding the access to the beach. Very nice and relaxing place with lots of space to host a lot of people. There was a cute breakfast place just a walk up the street. The beach access was only a walk away. And the pool and hot tub was just in the backyard, perfect for a relaxing bbq day. There was enough room for at least 8 adults and 3 small children to run around all day. Nice atrium area at entrance of the house was a nice place to sit and talk or set up an astronomy star gazing night. Everything listed was just as it was. After reading all the reviews it was exactly as it was described. Plenty of pillows and towels for the stay, very convenient. The Chinese place next to sunshine bagel was good also. a big PLUS, there is a liquor store in the same plaza that is open till 11. Great selection. but there are plenty of restaurants and places to go on atlantic bvld and commercial pier. a great place to go. Also, perfect for kids... a playground and a look out area to the light house at night. great to see, also.
Con: The second bathrooms on the north side of the house shared a bathroom, but the bathroom is not in the middle of the two so you would have to walk through to the other room to get to the bathroom. Wouldn't have been a problem if the sliding door for the bathroom wasn't dragging so loudly on the floor. Very jarring to hear in the dead of night. Also made it not very private. the shutters were down from the recent hurricane scare and was found to not work properly at the time so there was no way of bringing it back up to its place. This made the family room kind of dark. But definitely didn't bother us. Most of the controls and switched on the hot tub did not work. Lots of switches inside the house didn't work and finding the switches were a nice mystery. As a suggestion for the owner or property manager, maybe a blueprint of the house would assist in this matter. It was a nice surprise to find a small bathroom in the garage at the time we were leaving.
This property had everything we could have asked for. The location is excellent; convenient to so much and yet quiet. The house has everything including a fully stocked kitchen (cookware, utensils, etc.) and towels galore. The full-size washer and dryer means all you really need are a few changes of clothes and a toothbrush. There is a small convenience store and a few nice places to eat just two blocks away - an easy walk along quiet side streets. This one is definitely a family vacation favorite.
This property has a lot going for it: The location (short drive to Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, and Forty Lauderdale), nice pool, relaxed atmosphere inside, and proximity to a few shops/playground/harbor. The pool is also wonderful with lounge chairs and great landscaping. The kitchen is stocked well, and it seemed care was put into the selection of supplies.
Items for consideration: The only bathroom not connected to a bedroom is in the garage, which we used often. We did not find Amy very helpful - The crib mattress was set too high for our son even though we'd shared his age & she offered no help with locating a screwdriver. After that first interaction, we didn't bother to contact her when the hot tub temperature wasn't adjusting properly. The breezeway could use organizing and updating in terms of the beat up sofa and random items left over time. The nearby private beach was infested with seaweed on our first visit so we used other beaches after that. It could have been a seasonal issue.
All in all our stay was very enjoyable. Just a few things to work around!
Beautiful home, awesome location. Home is shaped in a triangle, which is hard to tell from photos. Tons of space. Security was great. Private beach was nice. Didn't have to go far for groceries. Kids rooms are not right next to master suite which was good so they can do their thing and not keep adults awake all night. Pool and hot tub were well kept. Two fridges. Tv's a plenty. Close to many area attractions. Was a great experience. Very happy with how this went for us. Thank you Amy for helping us have a great vacation. Well worth it.
