"The Last Straw was a great value. It was a short walk to the beach and we loved the location. The house was very clean and well maintained. Every bedroom had its own private entrance from the deck, which we loved. There was ten of us, and we were all very comfortable. I could not figure out how to operate the washing machine, and the owner himself came over to help me. We were very pleased and would recommend the Last Straw to anyone."

"I rented this house for my wife's 40th birthday celebration. She invited 12 of her "closest friends"!
Thunderstruck was more than large enough to accommodate this group. I loved the fact that all of the beds were either twin, queens, or kings........no bunk beds for the adult guests!
The house was very well furnished, all the way down to the bicycles. My wife's favorite part was the Tiki Bar!
I agree with the previous reviews, the pictures really don't do the house justice.
At first I was a little leery of dealing with a property owner so far away, but trust me, Rich was very available and always responsive to any question I had. The on-site property manager was also very helpful.
We will definitely rent Thunderstruck again!!"

"Just enjoyed Labor Day Weekend with my 2 kids, their spouses and my 7 grandkids (5 adults, 4 teens, 3 under 3) and had a wonderful time! The location was convenient - across the street from the beach and the pool was a wonderful addition for the little ones when we tired of the sand. House was just fine - older single story w. over carport deck so teens could enjoy their own space with little adult interference when they weren't riding bikes or enjoying the beach. House generally clean but showing wear; Kitchen well equipped but you may have to look through all cupboards. Suggest you wipe down counters & table before using (hard to avoid the beach dust that blows in & collects on surfaces). Bring extra rolls of paper towels & TP (only 1 small roll of towels & 1 roll TP in each bath) & cooler of ice (no ice maker & fridge is definitely small and worn, but kept food cold). There's also an enclosed outdoor shower and hose behind the carport that we didn't find right away, but it is great for rinsing sand off feet & shoes or to wash off the beach grit before jumping in the pool or coming inside. Our family enjoyed this get-away so much we've decided to make it an annual event."
