This is an awesome spot for the family. The owners are very helpful when you contact them.
A great getaway.
We had a lovely time at Tuck's retreat. Above all the sea view is stunning and we spent hours sitting out on the porch listening to the waves. The house itself is very comfortable and well appointed. We found that all of our needs were met and that everything was well stocked. Thank you for a great vacation Marc and Pamela!
Overall a great experience
We drove for 2 days with 3 young kids and were excited for our beach retreat. Unfortunately, when we arrived to the home, it had not been cleaned from the prior renters. There was apparently a miscommunication between the owner and cleaning service, and we just happened to be the ones to deal with it. We stripped the beds (which had bodily fluids on them) and began cleaning our own house before the cleaning service arrived. Meanwhile, we awkwardly waited for them to finish cleaning and tried to keep our hungry, cranky kids out of the way. Once clean, we were finally able to start cooking dinner (after 8pm) and enjoy the place.
Besides that massive hiccup, we had a wonderful time. The home is lovely, the view is incredible, and there was plenty to do with our family. Even though we were not compensated for our initial trouble with the home, I would still consider coming back. You just can't beat the view and sound of the waves crashing right under the deck.
We apologize for the inconvenience with the cleaning and take full responsibility. There was unfortunately, a rare misunderstanding on the calendar with our cleaning crew. We contacted them immediately and they headed over right away to take care of the situation so you wouldn’t have to deal with it. Any problem at check in is the last thing we want to hear from a guest, it is a stressful situation for all involved. We always strive to take the very best
care of our guests and appreciate your 4 star review of our home despite the delay in getting the place ready for your stay. We would love to have you and your family back as return guests and will look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!
Super Beach Get-away
The deck is directly over the water, with a small private beach right next to it. You would be farther from the ocean on the deck of a cruise ship and it would be far more crowded! The sunrise was spectacular each morning and the deck offered shade and cool breezes during the heat of the day. We saw fish jumping often and pelicans, gulls, terns, plovers, shearwaters, egrets and even a few frigate birds flew by all day long. The house was clean and well supplied. We really enjoyed the extra large open kitchen/dining/living area with comfortable furniture and full TV/satellite/wifi. The three bedrooms had comfortable beds and having two full bathrooms was most convenient. Definitely a great beach location to get away from the crowds.
Our most relaxing vacation. Perfect location and a responsive host when we had questions.
A Special Experience
The only bad thing about writing a great review about a place you've stayed, is that everyone will want to stay there and it will be hard to book the next time!
That's how I feel about this place. I wanted to get as close to the waves as possible and fall asleep to the sound. You can't get any closer than this! You can FISH from the deck, drink your cocktail, cook on the grill and never have to leave. I pretty much never did leave unless I had to get some bait from a little store which is only 2/10 mi. from the beach house.
I brought my Aussie Shep and she loved it as well. The huge, beautiful beach is just one house over and very dog friendly.
The house was comfortable & kitchen well stocked and the Wifi worked great! Not much more to say other than...this was an excellent find!
Thank you Marc Tuckey!
