Appliances new, nice pool, a lot of space to spread out.
Quality of furniture was great. Good toilet paper, nice safety features for children. We could have used batteries in remotes in the bedrooms and lights in bedrooms that work would have been nice.
Thanks for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed the home and all of the space that this home offers. I will have the batteries in the remotes checked since all remotes should have batteries. We look forward to having you back!
Excellent place to stay...exactly what we were looking for.
We loved our house. It was perfect for the 12 of us....2 families of 5, 2 singles. Everyone had their own living quarters.....mainly bathroom! The kitchen and living area was awesome for hanging out and eating together! We cooked Easter dinner...the kitchen was so handy and well stocked with everything we needed. It was so comfortable....just like Home! The house was in very good shape. All the rooms were furnished with nice furniture. The pool was definitely small but it was perfect for the little kids. Adults could go in but it is not really for adults. The garage was nice to store things in. There were some chairs/umbrellas/beach toys available, although many were in bad shape. The garage door opener didn’t work but it was easy to open and close without. The neighborhood was great...very nice people, especially next door neighbor! The walk to the beach was close although is was a little dangerous crossing the road (A1A) as it was pretty busy. The beach atmosphere was a little disappointing. Many of the houses along the beach were under construction because of hurricanes/storms a year ago. It was relatively quite relaxing on the beach. We liked to go to the main Vilano Beach beach! This location was great for visiting historic St. George’s Street downtown. We were very close to many restaurants...our favorite was Beaches! We were close to the fishing pier, Porpoise Point, intercostal waterways. The bridge off the island was always busy and we had somewhat of a wait but it wasn’t too bad. We absolutely loved our stay and would highly recommend to others!!!
Thanks for the great review. The items in the garage are left behind from other tenants, we do not provide beach items for this very reason. We were unaware of the garage door not working however it has been repaired. You and your family are welcome back anytime!
Very comfortable and spacious
We enjoyed our stay, and took advantage of the multiple beds available. Very comfortable and clean with a nice kitchen to work with. It was very close to the "destination wedding" on the beach we attended. Enjoyed our short time visiting St. Augustine as well.
Thanks for the great review you are welcome back anytime!
