A wonderful stay at the Tiki Beach House
The pics don't do this wonderful place justice. Situated within biking distance from the beach and a couple of blocks from restaurants.
Serene, Calming and Clean
I spent time in the Tiki House as a solo retreat and it was all I hoped it would be. The quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors who were actually very quiet for the close proximity. My favorite thing was the hammock in the front yard. The master bedroom was dark and totally silent each night which I appreciated. I brought my bicycle to ride into town each morning, afternoon and evening. It was off season so the roads were deserted and very safe. Probably a 15 minute walk to the beach, 5 minute bike ride and 3 minute car ride. Communication with Clodie was pleasant and she was very very helpful and obliging when I requested to change my stay dates at the last minute.
I will consider bringing my dog on my next visit to the Tiki House! Thanks so much!!!
Truly a home away from home!
The house was AMAZING!
SERVICE: The owners were very responsive, accommodating, and great to work with. If any issues would have arisen during our stay, I was confident that they would have been addressed right away.
THE HOUSE: I noticed that there was a previous bad review right before we checked in, so of course that would make anyone a bit nervous. However, the house was just perfect. It definitely shows why there was only one negative review out of so many positive ones. While I can't speak to that specific situation since I wasn't there, we certainly didn't experience anything that the review complained of. In fact, it was just the opposite. The house was very, very clean. It was large enough for a family, or several couples and all of the small touches just made it feel like home. The cute decor made was just perfect for a beach house. The outdoor shower was a nice surprise, the tiki area was great for pouring a couple of cocktails, and the garage was nicely stocked with bikes/helmets, beach chairs, children's sand toys, and other fun beach items.
LOCATION: We personally like to ride our bikes everywhere (the beach was just a short five min bike ride away), but the beach is definitely a quick walk away if you prefer to walk. In addition to the beach, my husband and I were easily able to ride to all of the bars and restaurants of the main street, and if you want to go to the WaWa or Off the Hook, there is a back street that takes you there in a ten minute bike ride and you can avoid the traffic. The neighborhood is charming, and the street is a quiet culd-de-sac.
We would absolutely stay there again, and thanks to the owners for sharing their home!
Filthy and poor customer service
When we arrived at the house the first thing I noticed was the yard. I noticed how all of the neighbors laws were so nicely taken care of. Everything was overgrown and didn't look like the the pictures. We got into the house and noticed it was not clean. The main reason I rented this house was because everyone commented on how clean it was. The counters and stove were not wiped off, stove top was dirty and cracked, grease and dust on the hood of the stove, floors were sandy and dirty. The couch and beds were covered in sand, baseboards were dirty, light switches had dirty fingerprints all over them, some dirty dishes in the cabinets, the fridge was visibly dirty, both bathroom showers were covered in soapscum, toilets were not cleaned inside, the glass table was not clean, nothing was dusted. The one closet has metal shelves that are covered with dust and cobwebs, dirt and sand under the beds, table and throw rugs, the dining table was filthy. It had a white tablecloth on it that was filthy with sauce or ketchup, the chairs had ketchup or sauce crusted on them along with dust and hair, ceiling fans are caked with dust, glass door had hand prints all over it, wall next to stove has hard plastic to protect the wall and that is filthy. Behind the living room tv was cheerios and dirt. This stuff is all visalible. I called the home owner and she text me saying the cleaning lady would come by. Well she and her crew came in with an attitude. The first one that came in says picsshe already cleaned and she isn't doing it again. I called the homeowner again and was told to talk calmly to her and she would do what I asked. She took out a dirty mop and started moping with bleach water around the throw rugs and never under the table, vacuumed the couch and then the other one stood there and kept saying she wasn't doing anything. One woman wiped the one shower floor with a wet, bleached cloth to get the hair out, rinced some drawers out in the fridge and as I told her about the closet, she walked into the living room and was asked by another woman "what did she say" then left without saying anything. I was then told by homeowner that the cleaning lady told her she said goodbye and I says thank you, so they left. She then said she knows her house is not dirty and she never had a problem with the cleaning lady before and I need to move on and try to enjoy my week. Poor customer service. Also had ants all over the kitchen no matter how much I wiped the counters.
Great house for a family!
We had a wonderful week long stay at the Tiki beach house. We have 3 young boys who enjoyed playing wiffle ball in the front yard and fooseball in the garage when we weren't enjoying the beautiful weather at the beach. The house is well stocked with everything you could need from pots and pans to sand chairs and toys.
So cozy it felt like home.
What a pleasure it was to stay in your beach house again this year. A wonderful experience for children. Vacationing at its best! We had an amazing vacation due to your cozy home. We hope to do this again next year. Thank you Clodie and James!!
