Great location. Nice layout. Responsive owner. Gorgeous sunsets!! Needs a little TLC.
We brought our 56' boat over for 8 nights. It worked out beautifully - we parked the boat right behind the house and it was extremely convenient. Some of us stayed on the boat and some in the house, but we mostly loved having a spacious kitchen to prepare meals and plenty of room to eat and relax together.
A few things to note...
As mentioned in a previous review, the dock paint has oxidized and the color of the paint gets on your feet or shoes and is then transferred to the boat. No amount of scrubbing or cleaning products has removed it from the deck of the boat, so we are hopeful that some time in the sun will help. We ended up rolling out carpets and leaving a pair of shoes on the dock and a pair on the boat. Beware of this.
When we arrived, no one met us - which was fine, except that the owner had previously told us that someone would meet us. So there was some confusion when we arrived. The fridge had leftover food and was full of (spoiled) liquid from someone's fish, so the first thing I had to do was remove all the drawers and bleach the fridge. When I notified the owner, the housekeeper appeared at the house immediately and was very apologetic, but it was a little too late.
We were never given a key. I asked the housekeeper for one and she said she would bring it the next morning, but never did. I was nervous leaving the house all day while we fished, so we ended up having to bring all valuables with us each day which became a hassle. Overall, it is safe there but we would have liked to be able to lock our stuff inside. There is no deadbolt on the rear door to the house and there is clear packing tape over the hole in the door where the lock was.
There is one thermostat in the house and you can't adjust the temperature (understandably). It is located downstairs and was set to 71 degrees. The downstairs was actually too cold for the kids even with six blankets each and the upstairs was quite warm. We were just fine with ceiling fans and were never uncomfortable upstairs, but the people downstairs were freezing!
The house clearly sustained some hurricane damage and there is a lot of peeling paint on the walls and there are even unfinished 2x4's nailed around the door frames where there was damage.
There was an active camera hidden in the master bedroom drapes, which my husband quickly unplugged. That was very unsettling.
None of these issues affected our experience much, but should be known to future guests. GREAT fishing!!
Red dock was a slight problem
