Reviewer Comments:

We love it here. Great location Huge house Absolutely stunning pool. We rave about this house to all of our friends and family. A couple things that definitely need to be addressed. If they aren't going to provide them then they should specify that in the rental agreement so people will know to bring their own. BATTERIES! Not a single remote in the entire house had batteries. I could see if it was just one occurrence but it has been all 3 times we have stayed here. And the ceiling fans do not have cords to change the speed of the fans or turn them on. Certain rooms we could get the fans on and certain rooms we couldn't. The rooms that they did work in we couldn't change the speed. May not be an issue for most, just something we noticed. None of which will keep us away. Just pointing it out :-)

This is a wonderful place for a large group.The kids had a fabulous time. The kitchen and furnishing were well equipped for our large family. I would highly recommend this place for a week full of fun in the sun.The door going out to the pool was hard to open and close and and outside light didn't work, but other than that a great place to stay.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at the Summer Place three times before, though it has been 9 years since our last visit. We love the house but were very sad to see that the normal wear-and-tear is not being fixed. The following problems caused us many annoyances: -ice maker barely working; had to purchase bags of ice repeatedly -door of cabinet holding dinnerware has broken hinge on top; requested fixing but it was merely patched and the whole door came off the next day -tableware was well stocked except there were no plastic cups at all for kids' use; also there were only 8 small bowls, not enough for 12 people -kitchen sink faucets need repair; one had a broken sprayer and the other leaked badly, flooding the butcher block counter -upstairs shower missing handle -mattresses on bunk beds very lumpy, need replacing -front door latches (on double door and keypad door) not functioning properly, the first could hardly be opened and the second wouldn't stay closed) -kitchen tables very wobbly -there is only 1 small coffee pot, not enough for 12 people, and no Keurig at all -ovens were super slow, causing an hour of time to be lost on our first morning to the beach -the pool maintenance guys forgot to shut off the water and the pool deck was flooded when we first arrived. I will still give 4 stars overall because the space and location are great. Still, for over $1600 per day, you expect things to be in good working order.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was perfect for a small, intimate wedding I hosted for my daughter and son-in-law. It was very clean and spacious and the weather couldn't have been nicer in October. We all enjoyed the house very much. My only complaint would be with the release of the keys to the property at 3:59 p.m. when I was told earlier in the week that if I would call the morning that I was to pick up the keys they would make arrangements for me to pick up the keys as early as 1:00 or 2:00. That was DEFINITELY not the case. I had guests traveling from Dallas, Houston, Kerrville, and Harlingen and had to keep them waiting before we could access the property. If you are not going to release the keys until 4:00 o'clock, say so, there's no need to lie.

First arrival of the house was impressive. The driveway is very steep to get to house, helps make the area more private. Pool is large so stays cool and enjoyable. Kitchen is commercial Grade and has a Fridge big enough for everyone's food.
