Great space, great location

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful and it's location to the beach is wonderful! Perfect layout for a vacation home and the amount of beds also a plus! Just a few disappointments: the provided towels are not of good quality and not enough of them. The kitchen supplies are lacking. We were surprised that there weren't any family games or activities...that wasn't expected, but has been standard at other houses that we have rented.

Beautiful house, but lacks basic necessities

  • 2 of 5

My family and I rented “Doctor’s Orders" for the Thanksgiving week and planned to cook some of our Thanksgiving dinner there. There were 6 adults and 8 kids. The home was beautiful and nicely furnished. We selected this house in particular because of the large amount of comfy seating in the living room. It had 4 very large nice couches so everyone had a place to sit. The home is advertised as sleeping 15 and it does sleep 15, but be aware that one bedroom has two beds so two couples will share that room.

*There is a trundle on one of the beds, but no sheets, blanket or pillow provided. So, don’t expect extra blankets.

*The table seats 6 and there are four bar stools.

*ONLY 4 chairs on the huge, roomy other outdoor furniture! These were filthy and had to be wiped down before using.

*Don’t expect a fully stocked kitchen. There were two small sauce pans, one deep pot, a six inch skillet and an 8 inch skillet. There were no glass or pyrex bowls for serving. There was a large dollar store bowl.

*There was ONE large knife which was a bread knife. No other knives in the kitchen.

*There was no liquid dish soap, no dishwasher detergent

*There were no paper towels and only 1 roll of toilet paper

*There are no games or movies provided for kids

*There is no WIFI.

*There is a picnic table downstairs (covered in bird poop). No extra patio chairs, no closet with beach toys or chairs

*The towels and washcloths in the bathrooms are mostly old and mismatched. There were a few new cheap washcloths that had never been washed and were bleeding dye when used.

When we called the property manager, Marinko Mandich, and asked about a few necessities - bowls, dishwasher detergent (we always load any dishes in the dishwasher and turn it on before leaving) and trash bags, his comment was, “What do you expect me to do? I can’t help it if someone takes those things. And I can’t provide every specific bowl you need for cooking. I’m an hour and a half from there and I can’t drive there.” I’d have to disagree with him. It is his responsibility to replace what someone took if he wants to rent it. It’s not the renter’s responsibility. He told me we could go to the dollar store and get what we needed and he’d reimburse us. I told him we would and we’d expect reimbursement for it all. He then said he had someone who could bring us a few things. It’s a beautiful home but we won’t rent it again. Too many others offer great amenities for families / groups.

The house was great for our family. The owner responded quickly with any questions and made our stay very nice. Close to the beach and plenty of room. We would recommend this house.

Beautiful Clean Spacious Property extremely close to beach

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend stay day after Thanksgiving celebrating my daughter's 9th Birthday was wonderful. Bedrooms very spacious lots of cabinet space. Beds very comfortable, even though we brought our own blankets & pillows really no need because Marinko has the house stocked with a sufficient amount of towels & throw blankets. We enjoyed sitting on the large open porch watching the waves. The large picnic table and grill area downstairs was very enjoyable, 1st night we had dinner downstairs. Cooking pots are of course not the best but came in handy so if you plan on cooking best to bring your own frying pan etc if you are picky about your cooking supplies:-). Everyone loved the open concept. Our guests of course eager to book a stay at this house in the future loved the house it is simply beautiful. Thank you Marinko daughter's bday weekend a memorable one. Hoping to book another stay very soon. Celeste Trejo & family

Perfect getaway for large family!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a beautiful place to relax and enjoy family time! We loved the open concept kitchen, dining and living area where we spent most of our time when not at the beach. Lots of comfortable seating, house was very clean, beds were comfy, kitchen well stocked with cooking utensils, etc., had everything we needed.

The beach was nearby. It was just perfect! A wonderful weekend was had by all!! Highly recommend!
