Great beach house
This house has everything required for a great vacation. They provided extras like USB chargers in the bed rooms. This house has a Great Location and is close to everything you need or weren’t able to bring. Plenty of room for everyone. Great pool and pool table. If this house fits into your budget, then it is the house for you. You will be very happy dealing with a Great property manager. She is very easy to get ahold of and gives very prompt responses. I can’t say enough about this Great house. Thanks so much for making our vacation an unforgettable one!
We are so glad that you enjoyed the house and all it has to offer! And we agree that our house manager is the best out there!
Perfect family vacation!
My family and I loved the property and it's amenities! This was a great location in New Smyrna and couldn't be happier with the pool and beach access. The house had plenty of rooms and bathrooms for all 13 of us. We loved having the different living areas and the game room was great for the kids. We would definitely book again when we come back to New Smyrna Beach!
We are so glad you had such a great experience at our beach house. And we agree, the game room area and separate living areas are definitely a bonus! Hope to see you back in NSB!
Great vacation, beautiful setting
Pros: Really lovely spacious property for a family (grandparents 2 parents 7 and kids 4) vacation. Located on the "drive onto" part of the beach which was only a little concerning (with small children with us) BUT can walk right out to beach (w/awesome sunrises and sunsets) or stay at pool if feeling lazy. Near to stores and restaurants, some easy walking distance, others 1 mile away. Very prompt response from manager when we had questions. Cons: very few: no shade at pool but owner ok'd a sail shade which we brought and tied to the patio and porch rails - worked really well; upper floor queen bed has been used by singles so a couple kept rolling to the middle (maybe rotate some of the mattresses?); and could use a little more seating in the main living area; could use another couple of beach umbrellas (thank you David for loaning your tent, thank you Jennifer for coming right over to get it for us, and for mailing our forgotten items back!). Overall beautiful spot for a beach vacation. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks David and Jennifer!
We are glad you enjoyed the pool, ocean and spacious house with your family!
Regarding the shade, the decking by the pool provides relief from the sun. We cannot keep umbrellas on the patio tables due to wind and damage. Will look into buying another umbrella for the beach.
All of the mattresses are new so will need to look to see why we would be having an issue with one of them. We typically have 2 people sleeping in the queen beds.
And we agree that Jennifer is the best - hope to see you again soon!
Beautiful beach house
House was great. Great week
We rented this house for a week with twelve family members. Overall, the house is clean and very well decorated with lots of space and the beachfront location cannot be beat. These are the pros and cons:
- Extremely clean
- Everything was in close to new condition
- Décor and design are modern and comfortable
- Lots of bathrooms so that almost every bedroom has its own bath
- Very well appointed
- Check in and checkout were simple
- Swimming pool was clean and very nice
- Air conditioning is not balanced. The rooms on the west side of the house get significantly hotter than the east side. There are fan/dehumidifiers in the west side rooms to mitigate, but not effectively.
- I was dinged with a $200 damage claim because of a scratched wood dining room table. We were not convinced that we caused it, and it seems like something that is just normal wear and tear if we did. It also seems if the table is easily scratched maybe it shouldn't be in a rental property.
- In the rulebook, there are requirements like cleaning the grill and washing the beach towels before checkout. This seems excessive, especially considering the fact that you are on vacation, and this is in addition to the $350 cleaning fee.
Overall, I would give the house 4.5 stars and the security deposit issue 1 star. That is why I am averaging it out to 4 stars overall. I am also an owner of a VRBO rental myself, and know what is and is not expected for normal wear and tear and when to charge for damages.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We have added fans to the back bedrooms and will continue to monitor the air flow and see if any further corrections are needed. We have the same cleaning crew each week and they are very in tune with the house. As the table was brand new and a very heavy wood, it needs to be sanded and refinished to remove the gouges. We like to keep everything looking great for all our guests! Regarding check out, we have removed “scraping excess food” from the grill after usage. Regarding washing the beach towels, we have stayed at many high end houses and this a requirement at their properties as well.
