Although. It on the Gulf the iew was very nice. We had issue with the AC on arrival and my husband couldn't figure out the TV but the agency was there in minutes to attend to the problems.
Nice, quiet street on the bay with beautiful view. The main house was nice, very roomy. Info was misleading regarding second bath. It was downstairs with no ac, not an actual part of the house. Close to everything we wanted to do but out if the traffic. The rental company was great at check in.
I thought I had submitted my review of this property right after we returned, but today as I was planning another trip to the beach, I didn't see it.
Great spot on water
Open living, dining & kitchen area
The yard is just depressing to look at
The pier is in terrible shape
No cleats or bumper to dock boat - ours got terribly scratched up after we rigged it to dock
The downstairs bathroom has no air that I could see, making a shower in August pretty miserable
One comfortable chair in the whole place
Floor just inside door rotting.
No decent deck furniture. Couple of plastic chairs & strap loungers with no cushions.
Not very clean. Cobweb on hanging light over table, windowsills had dead bugs, dust on top of fridge. These things weren't a big deal but they did make me wonder what other corners were being cut while cleaning.
All of that being said, would I return? Probably, simply because of the location...land & water wise. Since we know there is no outdoor furniture, I would bring something. Since we know the pier/dock situation, we would bring things to make it workable. Would I stay here if we didn't have a boat? No way, the yard is just too depressing to have to look at all day. The other issues are things I can live with, again simply because of the location. Here is the kicker...Would I pay what they are asking for peak summer rental fees? No way in this world!! Entirely too high for the condition of the property.
We stayed in the last of May, it was quiet neiborhood. With friendly neighbors. The view is entertaining with the different boating and dolphins. We had a flock of Geese to visit us. It is a very relaxing atmosphere.
