Our home was nicely updated with all of the modern amenities including linens, immaculately clean and the view was spectacular! It was so nice that have a nice relaxing place to come home to during such a busy time. Highly recommend this home!
This is a relatively new beachfront house (built 2015). It could accomodate, in luxury, a large gathering of people. However, we found numerous (nuisance) problems with our stay. Our family was visiting for Thanksgiving week. The kitchen and great room are impressive. However, the kitchen is poorly stocked with cooking equipment. Fortunately, we brought some of our own. Upon my initial inspection of the rooms, I noticed many lamps were out in the light fixtures (management quickly responded and replaced), and the curtains in almost every room were in disrepair; so while the rooms were otherwise very inviting, the broken curtains gave the rooms an unkempt appearance. The carpets and upholstery were dirty and the rooms needed serious dusting. Management did professionally clean the carpets and upholstery, still this is an inconvenience to the renters (us). Many others smaller issues existed; a toilet running during the night, towel rack falling apart, outdoor furniture broken. I have visited some very nice places in my life. I enjoy when I see the owners and management, not only, care about the quality and upkeep of their property, but also care about the comfort of their guests. I did not feel that way about this place.
I stayed here with my husbands family and we had a blast! The house was breathe taking! The kids loved theater room and game room. The adult spent most of our time outside in the back yard. We were excited to find a beautiful grassy backyard at the beach. Not to mention how convenient it was having our own "walk over" to the beach. It was a little too cold for us to get in the pool but it was still a nice view. The top floor living room was my favorite part .There was plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and relax. We could all gather up there and spend time together as a family. This was a special trip for my in laws, and the time we spent together was priceless. I can't wait to visit again!
Do not stay here or utilize Kees. Their responsiveness to issues was awful! Multiple calls and emails without action. Blood stains on the sheets of three beds. Mold in 4 different showers. Kitchen sink leaks all over the floor and so do windows on the side of the home when it rains. Mold on a wall, water damage on ceiling, broken stove and kitchen fridge, only half of the BBQ grill works and it has never been cleaned ice maker has mold and does not work, electrical glitches throughout the house, poor cleaning from prior renters, we found dirty dishes in cabinets, very few kitchen utensils to use and cook with. For nearly 20k for a week it was nothing short of a rip off and disaster.
We loved SOCO! This home is by far my family's favorite! The kids loved the adorable bunk and the awesome theater room. We spent most of our time on the beach using the cabana service, which was an unbelievable surprise when we crossed the dune deck to find our own Kees exclusive tent on our first day! The home was very clean and the beds we soft and comfortable. We had plenty of space to spread out during meals and during age separating activates. Moms on the top deck with our wine, kids hanging out by the pool or in the theater room and guys shot pool close to the wet bar. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't extend an extra night due to a family coming in right after us. We couldn't be more thankful for the flexibility on check in days and not having to pay for a full weeks stay when we only had 4 nights to get together (coming from 6 hours apart). Check in was a breeze. We didn't even have to stop for a key! This was too easy for so much fun. See you next year SOCO and Kees.
