"This is a must-book vacation home if you're looking for something right on the beach. Tim communicated promptly and everything was as described.
I was a little worried when I viewed pictures of the front of the property. The row of townhomes is not pretty. In fact, it's very plain and looks almost like a motel. When we arrived some of the units had overflowing garbage bins in front so it was not a welcome sight.
However, a quick walk-through of all 3 floors let me know that this particular unit is cared for and the owners have been thoughtful in their choice of furnishings and finishes. The floor coverings and furnishings are lovely --- not fancy but very nice and very clean. The appliances were all in working order and were of good quality. The kitchen is compact but well planned and finished with nice counter, electric cooktop, dishwaher, and fridge with ice maker and water in the door. And enough plates, cups, glasses and cookware to comfortably feed a lot of people. During our week, I cooked 2 dinners and 1 breakfast for my extended family of 30 with no problem. We only needed to supplement the flatware with some plastic and we used plastic cups for the kids.
There was a blender, a crab pot, BBQ utensils, toaster, anything I wanted was there. Oh, except a juicer. I bought a little hand juicer and gifted it to the house.
Same with bath towels, water toys, chairs, umbrellas. Other than towels for the beach, the house had plenty of everything. It was impressive.
The only suggestion I have is to improve the quality of the kitchen knives and, IMO, it's time to replace the non-stick pots/pans. Someone has used sharp implements and the surfaces are scratched. Although there are several chef's knives in the unit, they are dull and not very sturdy.
And last, from the rear of the property (beach side), you can really tell which units are maintained and which are not. This unit and the units on either side have nice paint jobs and well-maintained decks. This unit has a larger main floor deck than most of the other units and is also is one of the few with a little roof over the top floor deck, making it possible to sit outside during the day. Most of the other units do not. So if you're considering other units in this group, ask questions and choose carefully.....better yet, just select this one! You will be happy.
Thanks Tim for a great place. We'll be back"
