"We have stayed in vacation rentals in this area for many years and have had a variety of experiences so some of my comments may seem odd but they are based comparisons to other rentals.
This is a very nice house in a very nice location. The house itself has 3 bedrooms, a sun porch with a cot, and a cozy front room with a comfy chair and game table so there is room to spread out and read, draw, or play games. The house is nicely furnished and homey with lots of unique local art/ craft decorations. It looks like it has been recently painted and everything was very clean. The king sized bed is very comfortable, the queen is very good, the futon is a high quality one, and the cot is OK for a small person. The linens are nice. Appliances are in working order and the tap water tastes fine to drink. The kitchen has everything we needed, we cooked 4 or 5 meals during our stay. Sound travels easily in the house, and the person sleeping in the down stairs bedroom can hear the kitchen noise. There is no AC; during our stay it was in the 80's and the house was comfortable with running of the ceiling fans and opening the windows. The neighborhood is beautiful, the walk to the beach is very pleasant. The beach is very nice and especially beautiful at sunset. You can walk on the beach a half a mile or so, but if you want to go for a long beach walk, drive to one of the many nearby beaches, like Peterson or Arcadia Dunes. We hardly drove anywhere during the 5 day stay, which was quite relaxing. The TV didn't seem to get local stations or a weather station so be prepared to use your phone, tablet, or computer for news and weather. the WiFi worked fine, though my kids thought it a bit slow; we did have several devices accessing it much of the time. There was lots of movies on Netflix if you are so inclined. There are lots of games and puzzles for evenings and rainy days. The house was easy to get into, with an electronic combination lock on the back door. There was always plenty of parking on the street. Everything went very smoothly during our stay. There was a lot of attention paid to making this a comfortable place to stay, the owners were very nice to work with, and everything we needed was easily found in logical places. I highly recommend this house."
