A few years ago, we asked our full-time tenants to leave, and hired professionals to help us start over and upgrade our 1600 sq ft vacation home. It took 10 months to redo everything, we ended up keeping only 3 pieces of sheet rock intact. So believe me, it's renovated.
The master bedroom/bath, TV viewing area & deck are upstairs. The 2nd bedroom/bath, living room, dining area and kitchen are on the first floor.
The deck is delightful. In fair weather you can catch some morning sun and the house acts as a shield from the prevailing breezes. It's a delightful place to breakfast, play on the computer or just feel like you're in a treehouse.
It's a very quiet neighborhood at night - so no barking dogs PLEASE. When there's ocean swells you can hear the buoys. And on really quiet nights you can hear seals barking.
And, yes, it's professionally cleaned right before your arrival!
