Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is beautiful! The pictures do not do this house justice. We spent my bachelorette weekend here and had an amazing time. Everyone loved and complimented the house. It slept 13 very comfortably with room for more. Very nice pool and nice size backyard with the beach right across the street! We are already talking about when we can book it again for a family vacation! I highly recommend this house!!!

Not clean

  • 1 of 5

We enjoyed our time. The house was not clean, dog hair and cheerios on the floor. Kids shoes lying around when we got there proved they didn't vacuum. Smelled like shrimp in the kitchen. Pool bathroom and shower were disgusting! Everett came by after I emailed, he was extremely rude. He ended up apologizing.

Owner's Response: These guests were the rudest, filthiest, least respectful guests we have had in our property in years. They wrote me an email to say the house is beautiful, but the upstairs was not cleaned. I knew it was, but I immediately sent Everett to check the situation out. When he arrived there was an abundance of drinking since there was a bachelorette party taking place. When Everett arrived he asked to see the upstairs. She told him he was rude to ask. She showed him 1 dog hair and a Cheerio on the outside deck and told him she expects perfection. She then complained that the waterfall in the pool was not working. They left the house in total disarray! False eyelashes stuck to the walls. Empty liquor bottles strewn throughout the house and worse. These people treated both Everett and my property as if they were raised in the gutter. These were the worst guests we have had stay at our property. After many extra hours of cleaning, the house is back to its 5 star quality. There is something wrong when we are consistently rated 5 stars and our property manager Everett is always well received by our guests. To be rated by these people a 1 star and for them to bad mouth Everett, says everything you need to know about these guests. We look forward to having guests who appreciate and respect our home and our property manager as well!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

What else can i say, Pam is very helpful and easy to communicate with, as well as Everet. Group of us coming from Texas and we had so much fun, with easy access to the beach, little Lagoon for kayaking and the pool. The kids and kids at heart enjoyed every minute of our stay. Will definitely be going back!

Everything was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 families stay in this beautiful house and everything was perfect. Everette even brought me a pink bouquet of flowers for my 10 year cancer-free celebration (the reason for the stay) and even changed out the light bulbs on the front porch to pink! He's the best! The private pool was perfect for the kids as well. I highly recommend!
