Our family of 3 couples and 2 singles stayed here in April and loved it. Rental process was smooth, management very nice and provided local info on places to eat and things to do. The house is as depicted in the pictures. Everything was clean and ready for our arrival. The lower screen porch was where we had all our meals, large enough table for 8 and ceiling fans kept us cool on the humid days. The gas grill was brand new, we used it every night we ate in. The upper screen porch off master bedroom has new comfortable loungers to enjoy the great view of the water, great for morning coffee lounging and evening cocktail sunset viewing. Kitchen was well stocked with dishware, utensils and cookware. The pots and pans were a little dated. Plenty of kitchen towels, but they looked well used. Beds were not new but comfortable. All bedrooms were large but the lower level master was not real private as one wall next to the stairs did not go all the way to ceiling. (?) Here's one of my pet peeves, not having a set of twin beds in one of the bedrooms (this goes for all house rentals we've stayed at !) Opposite sex kids don’t want to share a bed, neither do single adults, who may share a room. All 3 bathrooms were stocked with towels, hand soap, bar soap and toilet paper. Lots of extra towels and beach towels. Upstairs master bedroom bathroom was hugh and open. (Could use window covering as the next door house window can see into the makeup mirror which looks into the shower!! ) Second master bedroom bath has a small shower stall . Main hall bath is large, but could use a hand rail next to bathtub to get in/out of tub. Tile floor can be slick! Hand rail also would be nice in the hallway from kitchen leading to bedrooms, there are 2 steps there and again tile floor can be slippery. Pool and hottub were great, with enough lounger around for sunning ourselves. The beach/pier area was fun, lots of hermit crabs and other sea life to watch, plus the Iguanas running around. Can't really swim there, it's very shallow. Best of all was the use of 4 kayaks, just grab a life jacket and push off to paddle around the area. Area is rocky so wear water shoes. Had one issue with hottub not heating and management was very responsive with getting the issue resolved quickly. Also has issue with lower level air conditioner, management came right over (10 minutes) to check it out, then had AC man over shortly thereafter. Thanks for the the quick response!! Only a 1/2 hr drive to Key West or Bahia Honda State Park, which has nice beaches.
