It's hard to fault any home that steps out to a gorgeous beach and magnificent ocean. I think I could of stayed in a shack and been happy. This is NOT a shack, it is a beautiful home with lots of space and nice furnishings. The house is tiled throughout so it's easy maintanence with all the sand. The bedrooms were spacious and nicely decorated, it was very homey feeling. Our only complaints, which was addressed in an email mid stay which was never replied to, was that two of the bedroom t.v.s were broken (one which appeared to have been punched). Two of the three floor fans were non functioning, which wasn't a big deal. Our children were a bit bummed that one of the bunk beds in the loft bedroom (with the big beautiful windows) precariously wobbled and was held together with zip ties. They were very happy with the high speed wifi though! The deck was lovely and had enough sitting to accommodate the whole family and guests, however there was a large chunk of concrete missing from the entrance to the pool, leaving a barely hanging on hand rail and a sharp edge right at the stairs. The back door wouldn't shut properly, so the handy men we had around fixed it up with a box of tools they found in the laundry room. Everything else was great! A favorite of everyone was that it is one block away from a little shop that had about anything you could want and next to that was an ice-cream shop! Also it was appreciated that there were child safety gates already in the home and even a booster chair, which was wonderful. I thought it was a bit weird that we had to wash all the towels before we left, but we complied. I'm pretty sure that the house keeper didn't have to do anything besides wash the sheets after we left! I would of been happier if the owner would of responded to my email, as I wasn't complaining, just notifying him. None of it dampened our enjoyment or comfort.
We stayed there from 12/6 to 12/10. Our parents are still there. We loved it. Very clean. The furniture was in great condition. The beds were comfortable. I would recommend that the banister walking up the steps(facing the street) be worked on. It is loose. Also the refrigerator needs to serviced due to the ice machine not working. Everything else was perfection.
