"It was great. We had a wonderful time. The pictures do not really do this place justice. Just to grab a cup of coffee and sit on the deck is great. The view was amazing; the furniture was comfy. There was a tv in every room, and a huge one in the main living room. It was big enough that our 20 person group never felt crowded, even with 3 children under 10 enjoying the space as well. There were plenty of dishes, glasses, utensils, and pots and pans. Popcorn machine worked great, and we had a movie night. It was very clean; the house keeper did an excellent job, and the cleanliness made it refreshing and inviting.
Now for the cons: the wifi was out; the owner, Mr. Jeff, did try to help us, but it needed a new modem. This was a problem because we had a college student with us who had planned on completing online assignments while we were there. Pinball machine was broke, but all the other games were great. I was really looking forward to the hot tub just to relax and feel the heat and look out over the water, but the water smelled off, almost like mildew. It was also slightly cloudy.I could only think of bacteria, and I could not bring myself to get in it. But to be fair, maybe it's the water, and maybe the pipes just need a whole house filter on it because a couple of people in our party reported a similar smell coming from the ice maker (and one who had ice in a drink and bit into it said that the ice tasted the way the water smelled: terrible), towels that had been stored in cabinets, and the clothes that were washed there (the person in question uses unscented laundry products, so there is no perfume to disguise the smell of the water). Most people did not notice anything though, and the showers were fine (and there were detachable shower heads, which were great for our kids and older folks). Speaking of showers, the tubs do not have anything on the floor to prevent slipping and there are no rugs to step down onto; a couple of people almost fell because of these factors. The only other issue that really caused us problems was that while we were supposed to have shared beach access With the tower next door we could not because we did not have a key and it stayed locked we had to walk a way down the street to find a way to access the beach (which was clean and gorgeous).
Even with the issues above, we're already planning our return next year. We can't wait!"
