Guestbook comments from the manager

The seating in the living room is limited, but some of us were using the dining table for laptops etc. It still worked well even for 10 of us. Really close to the beach and nice views from the decks especially the top one. It was easy to drive to the beach as well - one pregnant that wasn't up to walking up over the boardwalk, the beach parking pass was only $12 and good for the whole season. I was thinking that if I didn't have calves of steel before we got there I would by the time I left, lots of stairs! The neighborhood is nice and not too far from town so it isn't a problem to get supplies etc.The downside was that the hot tub wasn't working, they did send out repair man but were unable to get parts in time for our stay. They ended up refunding a small amount which I thought was fair. Bring baby gates - the stairs are beautiful Saltillo tiles but make hard landing if babies fall.They said there was a grill, not a safe to use one (old rusty gas). It wasn't listed as an amenity so no foul there. I would consider them again for a beach rental.

Vacation 2017

Reviewer Comments:

Disappointing!! The house online looks fabulous and when we arrived it appeared to be the same. However, out the back is a HUGE sand dune that blocks the center view of the ocean. You can see the beach from the left and right sides of the porches, but not what we had expected. So okay that is still workable…but it got worse when I started unloading food and stuff in the kitchen. They had cooking utensils spread everywhere and there was no room to put food. I had to clear off shelves and rearrange the cabinets for space. The microwave looks like it belongs in a dirty Stop & Go store and been there for 15 years. Walmart has better ones for $35.00. The refrigerator took 2 days to cool off, had to use our ice chest, good thing we brought them. The floors were DIRTY, after just a few hours of walking around, our feet were dirty. There was 9 of us on this vacation and we were left 2 bath towels in each bathroom, yes that is just 6…I ask how that worked too. Well spent a lot of my vacation washing clothes. Then the second day in, the dishwasher stopped working. It would run water through it, but would not dump the soap or wash the dishes….yep you guessed it, more of my vacation on washing dishes instead of enjoying my trip. But to be complete honest it was enjoyable, I had my children and my grandchildren with me…that always makes it good. And the owner did agree to give me a $100.00 refund. I think the owner should invest about $500.00 of the $3509.34 that I paid them and fix up there house. That way the next guess that just wants to have a great beach vacation without spending 30-40% of it taking care of this owner’s poor business decision might get to do so.

Really nice house!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house with lots of room. Floors are separated so not a lot of noise between floors. Balconies on all sides and the top floor balcony very nice to look at the stars. Master bedroom is amazing! Would definately stay there again when on Port A.
