The location of the house was great.

  • 5 of 5

This house is very close to the water with a short 2 minute walk. It has a nice view of the ocean outside the living room sliding glass doors. Very Nice!! The property was clean with few exceptions. It is a nice comfy clean home that I would recommend. There were 8 of us and we were very comfortable. One of the guests was in a wheelchair and she did fine.The only thing to keep in mind is that it has a very small kitchen. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying again.The price was right! Enjoy!

Very nice but not great-- disappointing views

  • 3 of 5

On the positive side, Spyglass is a nice house, fully equipped and well-furnished. Everything was clean and neat. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. Less satisfactory was its situation and outlook-- perhaps I should have read the description of the location with more skepticism, but the house is located in a corner tucked between two other houses and has a view in one direction mainly of a gully between the first tee and the first fairway and in the other some view -- mostly over a road (cars were sometimes parked on it) and houses -- of the water; also visible from that side is the backside of the ninth green. The decks were very small and only one of them of any real use to us. It was a pleasant place but did not seem like a house on a bluff with white water views of the ocean and the golf course fairway on the other.
