Cluttered, too much stuff, needs a good cleaning cob webs included, blankets and rugs, etc.
Loved the wrap around porch but too many pieces of old furniture just taking up space i.e. 4 tables, one with broken leaf. No table inside so all meals had to be on the porch. No TV as owner expressed this was a choice to bring families closer togeather....however WIFI available and as most kids have electronic devices they can be just as distracted as when a TV is available....so why not provide a TV unless this is a cost too burdensome for the owner? Touch much stuff get rid of the personal stuff, jewelry boxes, how many bread baskets does one cottage need I counted 6 + 10 cutting boards. Kitchen lights dimmed perceptively on our last two days....electrical problem? Did like the newly renovated kitchen, spacious. Upstairs bathroom should be converted to a shower, existing bath to awkward for showers with the wrap around shower curtains so most of our showers were taken outside. One fan didn't work properly and not enough provided for all bedrooms. Cottage is too expensive for what you get.
Loved that the porch and the kitchen were spacious and functional but the whole place still has the charm of old Ocean Park.
Our stay here was a blast! I hope we can go back yearly. Rustic and perfect. Close to the beach.
Our two year old loved being on the porch, and it locks so he couldn't escape. Our ten year old rode her bike to the beach every day. I love the neighborhood. The cottage is rustic and beautiful. Kitchen is nice and equipped. The porch is the best.
Nice Location 2 blocks from beach
Great spot! We loved how they have kept the integrity of the cottage. Very peaceful and relaxing and a short walk to the beach.
Rustic, quiet little get-away. Spent most of our time on the large screen porch!
