Overall a great experience.

The enclosed back porch was our favorite place in the house. It was incredibly peaceful and the perfect place to relax.

DISAPPOINTED with the house and owner. The home is listed as wheelchair accessible, but it has many levels and big steps inside. The kitchen section is raised up at least a foot and it has huge steps going down to the back room.

It’s listed as 2 bedrooms, but the 2nd bed is in the back room with the dining room table. It has no door or privacy. You have to go through this room to go to the back porch.

The tv in the bedroom was a key requirement and I asked about it before renting, but it never worked! The 2nd week we were there, we wasted a whole day waiting for the cable guy and near the end of the scheduled time window for arrival, the owner cancelled and rescheduled for another of our vacation days. This was due to his miscommunication with me. Having no tv in that bedroom was a big inconvenience and disappointing.

A picture in the listing shows a dock out back, but it’s not on this property. The owner told me my husband could fish from the shore behind the house. The fishing was terrible and no fun for him. The grass flats are too close to shore for casting and the water goes out with the tides and leaves just mud.

We found many spiders and earwigs. There were bugs and cobwebs in the windows and a bug was smashed on the wall in the bathroom. The house could have been cleaner. The grill on the back porch was nasty.

When it rains or the sprinklers are on, water runs underneath the front door. The door is very hard to open and close. The bathroom door in the bedroom is like a ship door and the handle came flying off the first time my husband tried to close it, so wouldn’t close and would fall open.

The mosquitos outside are terrible, all day long. Even on the screen porch, they come up from between the floor boards.

Be warned if you rent from this owner. He was argumentative about the only two issues we brought up to him: the t.v. and I asked if he had another rental we could stay in, as we had a very hard time getting around with all the big steps. He had excuses for not speaking with me on the phone and would only text the entire 2 weeks. He will say he said something different than he texted! I’d have to tell him to read his own texts. He was so argumentative with me one afternoon, that I finally told him to quit texting me and leave me alone.
