Rules and Regulations

  • 3 of 5

The house was fine although we probably needed more than 2 bathrooms looking back. Everything was clean etc. But on the rules and regs, many sentences were highlighted and we felt the owners were the police. It says that if any keys are lost, there would be a charge. Well, there were only 2 keys in the box and ONE DIDN'T WORK. We called the owner and then had 3 extra keys made because we needed them immediately. Folks were coming in at different times and we needed keys. Also, there were dirty cloths in the dryer. I feel they weren't exactly washed because of the small debris in the dryer. But mostly, we were insulted by the portions of the rules and regs. The owner indicated he lived on the island and would be checking on us if there were more than 8 people ONLY there. I was afraid to have my grandchildren over because we said no kids would be staying there and they highlighted NO KIDS. I was afraid to have them even visit. I get it that some folks are irresponsible but we are NOT and personally the rules on the table in the house even insulted us. These were the rules when departing the home. I've stayed at various homes over the years but have never experienced such rigid rules. So we won't be coming back to any of this owner's properties as I see he has a few.

Owner's Response: FIrst of all, Our rules are the same exact rules as ALL other rental companies, word for word. The friendly reminder rules on what to do when you leave the house is just a reminder. When you called and asked for more keys, we said we would send someone right over to make more. Every rental company down there charges for lost keys. We do have a maximum occupancy is for fire codes and we do abide by the law. For you to say we are the police and you were afraid of us is absolutely absurd, and for you to say you were "afraid" to have your grandchildren over is ridiculous! We have 7 grandchildren ourselves and we LOVE children. You need to re read our guidelines. There is not one place on there that says "NO Children. I am sorry, you felt like you were policed, but we do not even stop by our homes unless there is a major issue.

Easter Weekend - April 2017

  • 4 of 5

Great location.

Inside: Nice updated living area and kitchen. Easily held 4 adults and 2 teens. Kitchen well stocked with utensils. Bedrooms were nice and everyone felt the beds were great (no sagging). Two bathrooms were clean and functional. Washer and Dryer were quite handy.

Outside: Deck was functional. Good seating. Backside facia/paint showed quite a bit of wear from the weather but still functional. Just steps to the beach.

In general we enjoyed our stay at this home. Good value and willing to rent for less than a week. I would rent from this owner again. 4 stars because of worn appearance of deck area.

Owner's Response: The house is a great house. The deck and railing is currently getting pressure washed and painted. We are trying to do it between renters instead of shutting the house down and not rent it at all.

Property was great close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

All the amenities you would want everything was clean and tidy. We were disappointed with all the cleaning that was required before we left or be charged. Also felt Uncomfortable with the notes left about settings on air conditioner if it malfunctioned we were responsible.

Owner's Response: Our cleaning rules are to simply "tidy the house, put all sheets and towels in the laundry hamper, wash the dishes and put them away, and take out the trash". That is not unreasonable to ask, and yes you will be charged if you do not do these things, because we include the cleaning fee in your rental and we have to pay extra if you don't do these things. As far as the air conditioner. We simply ask that you not leave the doors or windows open with the air conditioner running because it will freeze up the air conditioner and the air conditioner will not work. The air conditioner maintenance responds on their time, not ours. We are trying to prevent you from having to go without air conditioning in the hot season.

Second Wind get-away

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Second Wind. Pretty, private beach with soft sugar sand. Each day we had a view of the dolphins pretty close to shore. Really neat to see. We got to witness the "beach life" through the eyes of a 6 and 2 year old.

The house was very clean and modern, which made our stay a "home away from home". The owners provided a journal for us to read (and make an entry) which was very helpful on "what to do and where to go" on the island. They also had a big bin below the house with all kinds of beach stuff. I believe it is stuff that other tenants have left behind (or maybe not?) but it was all there for us to use. They provide a grill and an outdoor hose and shower to wash the sand before going back into the house. Perfect set up for a fun family vacation.

A sincere Thank you to the owner's who totally know what is comfortable and what you need to spend time at an ocean front beach house. Thumbs up!!!!
