Nice, but needs some updates.

  • 4 of 5

Lots of room, comfortable, good location. Appliances could use some updating and lacked "basics" most kitchens have in rental properties... like potholders...hard to use the oven without them! Refrigerator door needed adjusting so it wouldn't fly open and hit the counter when putting items in, ice maker leaked on wood floors, stove top took a long time to heat. Just needs updating.

Great value in Vanderhorst Plantation

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious home. Master Bedroom is on one side of house with a jacuzzi, walk-in shower, large bathroom and large walk-in closet. The two other bedrooms are on the opposite side of the house, with a bonus bedroom with two twin beds and a bathroom over the garage. Beach is a one mile walk or 5 minute bike ride away, and the beach access is right near the beach club. Beach here is beautiful, wide, and uncrowded.

We had no issues during our stay. Lots of small amenities like books on the shelves and board games to play or puzzles to make on a rainy day. Very small issues that no doubt could have been resolved quickly if we had needed to call: Lock on the front door took a little bit of time to figure out how to get it to work. No matter what position we tried to set the key to, it would not lock until we finally figured out the only position that worked if you turned the door handle in one direction at the same time. ... It was only on the third day we tried to turn on the TV. TV came on but there was no cable signal. There was a cable remote, but no visible cable box. We finally found the cable box in the far left cabinet, turned off and sitting on top of a lot of other electronic devices in a cabinet behind closed doors, so you could only change channels or turn on the cable box from the left side of the living room with the cabinet door left open. Neither item was a big deal, but it might be nice to leave a little instruction sheet in the home explaining how to position the front door lock to get it to lock and where and how to access the cable box.

Overall, if you are looking for a great family value while still staying beyond the second gate, this is a wonderful choice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide this thoughtful review. This home in Vanderhorst does offer the serenity and beauty that being behind the second gate offers, including traditional touches such as games & puzzles that bring the family together. Pristine beaches and lots of space to move around help round the whole experience out. We are looking into the lock and cable difficulties- definitely want to improve that experience- but very glad to hear that you didn’t even look towards the TV until the 3rd day of your stay- speaks volumes about all of the other activities available. Hope to see you again very soon!
