Spacious, updated, and clean!!!!

  • 4 of 5

A great floor plan for large groups! The kitchen, living, and dining all opens up together so it was perfect when having everyone gather for dinner and to hang out. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed to prepare meals and the rooms and bathrooms were all clean and comfortable. Outside decking on the first floor and master were perfect for lounging outside. We did run into an issue when we first arrived with the upstairs AC not working. The only negative was that it took 3 hours for the owner to respond, but as soon as he did, he worked through the night trying to find a HVAC technician to come out. A technician came out to repair it the next morning and the owner compensated us for the standard practice proportionate to the loss of use for the inconvenience.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the overall positive feedback. It is unfortunate that there was a problem with the upstairs AC unit. We just had it serviced the week prior, unfortunately sometimes these things happen. We started searching for an AC repairman right away; unfortunately with it being a Saturday night it proved difficult. The guest indicated, that the balance of their stay was great, which she has reiterated here; which is what we always strive for.

The property is very clean and updated.

We loved the Chez Antoine, it has updated appliances including new washer and dryer, nice and wide kitchen. Large deck. Lower level is a huge plus for BBQ party. There is a propane grill in the garage and beach toys if you have children. The bunk bed actually has 3 levels: top - 1 person; 2nd - 2 kids and the bottom level looks like a drawer but it actually has a mattress. We had 4 kids used this bunk bed nightly.

The bathrooms have granite countertops and tiles. Large living room and dining room. This house is closed to the street and it is a short walk to the beach but we have no complaint. You can either walk to the beach using the side walks in this neighborhood or you can drive out to the main street then take beach access which is 2 minutes drive.

We wish there are some salt and pepper left in the kitchen and dish wash detergent (wash by hand) so we did not have to run to the store to get them.

This was a wonderful house for us to have time with our daughter's family. It worked well foe everyone including grandchildren 2, 4 and 6 years old. The beach is just 2 blocks and very nice. The house was very clean and well equipped

Our overall experience was

great. All of the info that we got before we got there was very helpful.

A couple of suggestions:

The dryer takes forever to dry, even when we clean the vent every load. We wonder if it could be plugged up someplace in the vent system?

The upstairs bathrooms could have towel bars to hang used towels on to dry.

Thanks for renting your home to us.

Owner's Response: Dorothy, we love to hear that our guests enjoyed our property. We are commited to working to ensure that, that continues. We apologize for the difficulty with the dryer. Our maid staff had advised us of the problem before your stay. Rather than have it repaired, we elected to order a new Maytag high capacity washer/dryer set. Unfortunately, we could not get them delivered until after your stay (8/2/16). Regrading your suggestion about the towel racks, we will certainly consider installing some. Thank you again! and Best Regards.

Beautiful house, great for families!

  • 5 of 5

Big kitchen, nice bedroom layout for families, short walk to the beach, and clean. We went to the swimming pool at the Country Club, which was very nice and a 5 minute drive from the house. The owner was responsive to our questions and very helpful. Everything was as-described. We would definitely return.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Great location, short walk to the beach without the crowds of closer to town. House slept us comfortably. Does need some overall TLC on rusting external fixtures/furniture and deck railing is loose.

Owner's Response: We are committed to continuously improve our property, to enhance our guests experience. Last year we replaced the carpet with a high quality berber carpet; and had the interior painted with a soothing satin paint. This year we replaced the decking with a composite (Azek) material. Included in this work, was the reinforcement of the stair railing. The deck chairs were replaced, and we are encouraging our guests to return them inside at the end of their stay, to minimize their exposure to the salt air. We are gradually replacing the metallic exterior light fixtures with the non-metallic type, on an as-needed basis.
