Upon our arrival house needed much work but in response to our requests owner and Real estate company immediately took action. House was cleaned spotless, new grill delivered, new dock installed and pool and yard cleaned. Had a pleasant stay for month of April 2012. King size bed in master bedroom was most comfortable bed we have slept on yet and did not want to leave, plenty of dressers and storage space in that room. Suppose only request would be a TV in that bedroom. House is cozy, central air works wonderful and location of house is perfect, close to parks and restaurants. Really did not use 2nd bedroom so can not comment. But comfortable couches and dining area. Was nice sitting at table out in screen house and sitting out next to pool of course. Great sunsets!! Will definately be back next year and would recommend checking out this charming cozy home to others, the new dock is wonderful!!

The good, the bad & the ugly
The good, the bad & the ugly
THE GOOD: Pet friendly, great location with nice splash pool and private backyard. Well equipped kitchen as far as pots & pans, bowls,utensils, etc. THE BAD: Listing description is inaccurate & deceiving. There is no telephone or internet. The queen bed is in reality a full. The second bedroom is just a part of the living room blocked off with louvered doors, the "wall" does not go to the ceiling. There is no privacy, no closet and no outlet in bath for razor, hairdryer, etc. There is also no air vent, no end tables and no lamps. The shower door will be falling on someone soon. The tv backs to the one in living room with no sound barrier between them so can only watch one at a time. Bait freezer & ceiling fans were not operational. The dryer works but beware it only has hotter & hottest and don't expect any hangers to hang your clothes. The ice maker in top of refrigerator kept up with demand but the rusty old frig needs to be retired as it is missing a shelf and door won't seal & stay closed. The dishwasher has no soap dispenser (broken) and even though it runs dishes seem dirtier. Disposal backed up into dishwasher and flooded kitchen. It was finally replaced 4 days after reporting I refused to leave rental agents office until a plumber was called. Nothing had been done yet and I was told "the owner doesn't want to spend any money". Well that was obvious as no maintenance & upkeep have been done for along time. The linens provided were worse than what we brought for fish & dog towels and are ready for the rag bag. There was no mattress pad on king bed (gross) or dish towels and bring your own face cloth. THE UGLY: Dock is unsafe, loose boards with more pitch than the roof. It should be roped off and this house should be considered water-view not waterfront. The roof leaks and there are several areas of wet walls that smell of mildew. Owner's answer is to put another dust covered fake tree in front of it. (It's a plastic jungle in there) The leaking, screened porch ceiling was covered with black mold. The fabric on cushions is so, old & dry rotted they can't be washed. Major electrical problems & circuits popping constantly. THIS PLACE IS NOT SAFE! We were amazed KCB has licensed it. Look for alternative. THE UGLIEST: When we arrived after being in car for over 14 hours there were 3 sheets (not rolls) of toilet paper in the entire house and enough soap for one of us to wash hands yet enough dirt to keep us cleaning for three days.
