I don't recommend
I honestly don’t like to give negative reviews I typically like to focus on leaving positive reviews and if I had a negative experience just walk away from it. Obviously for me to be taking the time to leave this review is because there were just way too many issues to leave this alone and I want other vacationers to have an honest feedback. There were several wonderful reviews on this property which was one of the major reasons we rented it. I don’t know what changed from previous rentals until now but it was not the experience others had detailed.
First we arrived and got the key out of the lock box only to find that it would not unlock the front door I tried calling the homeowner several times as we had been on the road for six hours and just wanted to unload and sit down. I did not hear back from him for an hour and a half so we had to jump over the back fence and go in through another door. The problem was that the safety button was pushed in on the door so that the lever could not engage to open the front door even though the key had unlocked the dead bolt.
From there it just continued to there being no Internet and I asked him several times where the box was because we could not locate the user name he was telling us to search for on the Wi-Fi and he did not get back to me until 24 hours later and still did not disclose where the Wi-Fi was we ended up finding it by going into the attic where the he box is kept. The box had been powered down so finally we were able to get Internet after not having it for the first day and a half of our trip.
The vegetation in the backyard and the front yard had not been taken care of for at least a month or so and the hot tub was not clean or ready to go and the homeowner told me that was my fault because he tried to have them come on Friday and we did not allow them. This was because we had checked in for our trip the day before on Thursday and did not want to have to spend our vacation with someone else on the property.
These items should’ve been taken care of prior to our check-in and the homeowner is completely unapologetic. We all ended up getting hot tub rash (look it up it is awful) from the dirty hot tub because we were unaware on Thursday evening when we climbed in that it had not been serviced prior to our arrival. The homes cleanliness was obviously a quick surface clean as all around the baseboards, wall-corners and windowsills there were tons of dust and spiderwebs. It was not good!
Very clean property. Very close to the beach and all of downtown. Nicely furnished. Would stay agai
A nice older home only 6 blocks from the beach. Very clean and a lot of character. A super nice outdoor area. Felt very safe.

HB for the holidays...
We had a fabulous time visiting HB for the holidays and The Beach House was the perfect spot. We had adults kids join us from different parts of the country so the house was the perfect fit. Clean, comfortable, roomy, and warm were our first impressions. And the location can't be beat. A nice walk to the beach down Main Street featuring plenty of restaurants and bars and surf shops was a great way to spend our time. The hot tub was also a hit, as was the fenced in yard for Lola, our cattle dog. I'd highly recommend The Beach House as Bart is a very accommodating host and checked in with us without being in our way. If you're looking for a great place to stay in HB with character and charm, and as they say in real estate - location, location, location - book your stay at The Beach House with Bart!
Great location! Only five blocks to the beach. 4 blocks to Downtown/Main Street and the famous huntington pier --Major Restaurants and Shopping!!
