"We rented this house for the first week of August 2016. The house is clean, the kitchen is fully-equipped and is brand new as are the bathrooms. It is just steps in one direction to the beach and in the other direction to the ferry. The house sleeps 8 comfortably. There were plenty of towels and then some. Everything you need for the beach -- chairs, umbrella, wagon -- all there. Two houses down is a general store. A 10-minute bike ride away is a grocery store that delivers.
There are a few reasons I gave just the four stars -- all easily remedied and, if fixed, I would upgrade to a 5. The sheets on a few of the beds were pilly, including the bedroom with the king sized bed -- that's uncomfortable. There isn't enough lighting -- there are two low lights in the living room and neither gives off enough light to read in the evening. The bedrooms also have small lamps. The lamp on the end table with the king sized bed has a dark red lamp shade, which needed to be removed to have actual light and there was no lamp on the other side of the bed - again, tough to read. The outdoor space was a disappointment. None of us used it except to grill. It has potential, but it has a bunch of storage bins -- just old, not maintained like the inside of the house and not inviting at all. I love sitting outside on vacation and it wasn't a nice place to be. If it looked like the picture, that would have been a different story. It doesn't. The house sleeps 8, there are only two bikes - four would have worked. We save up for a vacation like this; it isn't cheap, and it would have been nice to have proper lighting and decent sheets.
A2 Acqusitions was great, very attentive. I sent an email to say that we only had one bike lock and Sarah was at the door less than an hour later. When deciding on a rental property, she answered all questions in a timely fashion and it was a simple process"
