"We stayed for a week May 2016. The layout was perfect for our family of 5.5. We were able to have our adult children in the main house with their baby while we enjoyed the separate master suite. The bathroom in the master was really small. The toilet paper holder had no where to go but in the middle of the room. And there was really no space to put toiletries - I had to keep it all on the shelves in the bedroom, just inconvenient. We kept the windows open and the breeze kept us comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked - nothing missing that we needed. And super clean also.There was a great supply of beach towels. The furniture in the living room was icky, but I have since been told it was replaced. The locations was perfect for access to the beach/pier. Sunsets were spectacular. I though parking might be an issue but it was not. Loved being so close to town and appreciated the bikes. Do not miss Tahiti Nui in town. We made use of the surf board using it as a paddle board on the river. We also used the cooler and some other toys so it was great to have those. The yard is huge with a really funky tiki bar. The lanai is awesome! We could sit and people watch all day. The seating was bolted to the ground so you could not move any of it and it was for 4 only which I found odd for a house that rented for 6.The location was terrible for noise. I expected traffic because of the parking lot and lots of people visiting the pier. But it was unbelievable! It wasn't the expected traffic, it was the constant burning out of the parking lot all night. We were jolted out of sleep at 2:00 am, 3:00 am, 4:00 am, 5:00 am - by beach goes who needed to let the world know they were leaving. We watched one evening, and the same truck came and went at least 4 times, fishtailing and showering gravel from the parking lot to the street for at least a hundred feet each time. We noticed the police there quite a few times. So sad but a result of the popularity of the area. The service we received regarding the booking and subsequent questions was outstanding. Immediate reply to all of my emails. Overall, the experience was excellent. Knowing the noise level now, I am not sure we would stay again unless the area was monitored better at night. It was just noise, we never felt unsafe. This issue is out of their control and not a reflection of the management of the house and it is the only reason I could not give it 5 stars."
