This is a great 3 bedroom home one block from the beach and central to all of the locations on the strand and just blocks from the historic distric. The house was comfortable and well set for a family vacation. We stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute. Amenities such as WIFI and TV worked without fault. I highly recommend this location for your next location.

Location is Perfect... Could use some TLC

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

Beds were super comfortable

Memory foam bath mats are a plus

The location is perfect if you want to walk to visit the beach/strand/pleasure pier and we took advantage of this.

The kitchen is very large (but the lighting is low around the stove area).

There were plenty of dishes and other kitchen items to use

The ice maker worked really well

Cons:

It advertised that there was a DVD player but there was not (we had my toddler granddaughter so this was somewhat of an issue in the evenings)

There is NO door on the master bathroom. I don't care how long you have been married, most people still prefer to do their "business" behind closed doors.

Some Pictures on the Home Away site are outdated....The Chiminea seen in the pictures is actually broken in several places, held together with some type of wire... unusable and it was actually full of cigarette butts when we arrived. The pictures also show a gas grill (There is a very small charcoal grill), and a table with an umbrella... There is a regular park picnic table but no umbrella to cover.

Most of the outdoor patio/porch furniture is in disrepair/old... The cushions no longer tie on and fall over, etc. The outdoor furniture and the patio/garden areas could use some TLC.

Tall people will have trouble in the short shower and large people may not "fit" the super tiny bathroom stall areas.

On the whole it was an average stay.

Perfect weekend getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a blast and the house was perfect for our needs this time of year. Plenty of room for everyone and great location to do so much. Doors and windows allowed amazing breeze from the ocean. No complaints at all!

Nice home in a very convenient location

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time to stay in this home. We truly love the convenient location - a block from Seawall and easy drive to Strand. Quick walk to several great restaurants and fun little bar on corner. The kitchen is amazing and also a nice big living room. Bedrooms about average for a rental. Back deck is also very nice. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a home near the seawall for a vacation!
