Great House, Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay. Bathroom upgrades were an excellent addition. Very private setting and close to guarded beach. Highly recommend and hope to return soon.

Perfect location, great view, could use some updates

  • 4 of 5

BOOKING: An absolute ease. Michelle Grimes handled all the details for us, and she was 100% dedicated to making sure out stay was up to standard. She was a pleasure.

LOCATION: The views were top notch for Forest Beach area, and the home is a perfect 1.2 miles from Coligny Circle (close enough to walk or bike but far enough away to avoid the crowds). That said, it is also near a resort which can make for a busy beach on certain days. Like most homes in that area, it is also very close to the neighbors. We were fortunate to have neighbors who were very respectful and easy to get along with.

BEDROOMS: These were typical beach bedrooms. One room has two double beds. The other two have king beds. All bedrooms have their own bathrooms (more on that in a second) and flat screen televisions. A couple of the rooms had older DVD players. Don't expect luxury, but all were serviceable.

BATHROOMS: With the exception of the downstairs half bath, all of the bathrooms and their fittings are clearly the originals (think mauve toilets/tubs) and in some pretty serious need of updating. Of all the rooms in the house, the bathrooms are probably the first things the owners need to address.

KITCHEN: The kitchen was fairly well outfitted, and everything worked as it should. I'd suggest, if you like to cook, you do as we do and pack your spice cabinet, good knives, and your favorite skillet. You could get by without them, but I was happy to have mine with me.

LAUNDRY: The washer and dryer are old but serviceable. The dryer broke while we were there, but Michelle Grimes (mentioned above) was right on top of it and had a repair man out at first notice.

POOL: Older 5.5' deep pool, but really nice to have for the kids. Needs frequent skimming as most pools do. Probably needs some work done, but it was fine for us.

ISSUES: If you don't care about the state of the carpets, you can skip this part. If you are the type of person who really doesn't like old and (in some cases) dirty carpet, you should take a moment. The stair runner is in dire need of replacement and the upstairs carpets could probably go to. For me, it wasn't any sort of deal breaker, but it's worth noting in an honest review. Also, while it didn't end up being a big deal for us, the floors were not fully vacuumed before our arrival and the trash cans were full. Grimes offered to send the cleaning crew back out, but it wasn't that big of a deal.

We would likely rent the place again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and are glad we were able to accommodate you as needed, quickly. I understand your concerns about updates, we are very aware of these items that need done. This past year we redid all the decks on the outside of the home and it was just enough time to complete before busy rental season started again. So this off season we have scheduled to update the carpet. We also are doing updates to the bathrooms this off season as well and putting in new flooring their too. These projects sometimes take a bit of time and with us only having about 3 months downtime it makes it tough to get it all done in one shot. So for the upcoming 2016 rental season there will be all new carpet and updated bathrooms for our tenants. As far as the cleaning goes we have been in direct contact with the cleaning company in addressing these issues, we are always glad to get them back out no problem if they miss something (however they should not!) The trash issue was due to the trash company not getting there on Saturday for some odd reason but we made a call to them and they went out that day to get it picked up. I am so glad I was able to accommodate you and make your stay an enjoyable one and look forward to hearing from you again next year so you can check out our updates and enjoy the home even more!!!! It was very nice having you and working with you:)

NO ONE HAS EVER COMPLAINED ABOUT THAT! REALLY??

  • 2 of 5

Why have there been no reviews of this home since 2012? The home is extremely dated - and the carpet is so nasty we put towels on the floors in the bedrooms and bathrooms (why is carpet even in the bathroom?!) The BBQ grill was a fire waiting to happen - owners did have a new one delivered- their standard answer to everything is "no one has ever complained about that"! The TVs didn't work - we called the cable co. and got them up and running - your welcome. The pool needs to be re-vamped. Very disappointed as this was our annual family trip - definitely not worth the $$$$

Owner's Response: We really apologize for your dislike in our home, this home has been rented week after week for many years in the months of February thru October. We have never had any complaints on this home. We have addressed the cleaning company to insist they use better sheets/bedding and take extra care in cleaning this home. We will be purchasing new carpet for the next rental year 2016. House has been completely booked so larger repairs and updating are done in our down months of November thru January this past year we had the deck all redone which took the majority of the months open to complete, along with new central air units and roof repair. We sent the cleaning people back to address the issues you had and they came immediately and we purchased you a new grill for the home to use during your stay and others to enjoy during their stay. We asked what you would like and you just wanted us to know you were unhappy. So again we are very sorry about your stay and can only continue to apologize and tell you our home is a home rented continuously with no complaints from other guests. We have repeat guests every year and in fact a guest that occupies the home from February thru mid May, with then continuous guests from there on out until end of October. Our sincere apologies for your stay and unhappiness.
