Great location and great house.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Checkmate about a month ago and I have nothing but positive things to say about the experience. The house is perfect for hosting multiple families and you can't ask for a better location for the price.

Best of all worlds

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of eight loved this house--spacious, with generously sized pool. Wonderful open floor plan for the living, dining, kitchen area on the top floor, and plenty of balcony seating with ocean views. Very responsive rental agency. The location is excellent, close to the walkway to the beach. The house is well equipped with beach chairs and toys, an extra fridge and outdoor shower. Plenty of TVs, and an extra living room on the lower floor. The kids enjoyed the Pac Man arcade game and the Wii, and we all enjoyed the many board games, puzzles, and beach books. The kitchen is well equipped, too!

Great house and was as depicted online

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Checkmate. The house was clean, bright and had a well stocked kitchen for large family style dinners. The pool and hot tub were clean. The kids enjoyed tossing a football in the yard and the two minute walk to the beach was perfect for all us! Thank you!

This rental property was perfect for our family of 8 adults and 2 children. It was great to have a bathroom for each of the bedrooms. The rooms were spacious and open. It was just a very short walk to the beach and the pool was large and beautiful! The kitchen was well-equipped and with 2 dishwashers and 2 refrigerators, there was plenty of space. We were given an incorrect code to get into the house, but a few phone calls and that issue was resolved quickly. We definitely would recommend this house and hope to stay here again soon!

Checkmate -- "Nailed it!" two years running!

This is such a nice home with great amenities. We (as a family of kids, spouses and grand kids) really do feel it is our "home away from home."
