Trouble with parking. This was a great property and we enjoyed it very much. However, the listing states that there is enough room for (2) vehicles to park. There is one drive way and if you have (2) large vehicles like an SUV, Van or Truck, you won't be able to fit both vehicles in the allocated parking areas. There was also construction for a house across the street and there were a ton of extra cars parked along the very narrow street for the duration of our stay. It was really hard to get in and out of our driveway both by car and on foot due to the number of cars from construction workers. We even had the beach access blocked one of the days due to the number of cars. Overall a great stay, though! Just a little tight in terms of parking.
Location was superb and the house was amazing - very neat, had all the supplies we needed, and was a great space in general.
Beach access and close to the pier.
We had 3 generations stay at Windhaven Retreat. It was great for that, as my parents had the bedroom on the main floor and the young adults and my husband and all stayed on the roomy top floor. At the end of a very quiet street with beach access right out the door!
We loved windhaven retreat! Perfect location. Close enough to the beach to walk...highly recommend brining a wagon if you take lots of ‘stuff’ to the beach. Quiet neighborhood. Tons of room in the house. Very clean!
The location and the house was good
My wife and I stayed here with our two children, 4 and 2. The house is easy to find, and owner makes it easy to get key and check in.
The place is large, with four bedrooms that are comfortable. You could easily sleep 7-8 people on the beds. With room for air mattress in the master or pack n Play as we had.
Bathrooms are well kept and had nice towels (something I pay attention to, maybe not eveyrone).
The upper balcony is beautiful, with good view of the ocean.
The screened in porch on the main floor is nice, with good seating. View is okay, and the pool next door with lot of loud children makes it little hard to enjoy, but is made up for with the balcony on the top floor.
The beach access is very easily, basically turn right out of the driveway and you're walking down the steps to the beach. I easily could take a wagon with our things and the children.
Very easy access to downtown as well, which you could walk, but was easy drive.
Overall a very comfortable and easy place to stay.
I'm sorry we didn't sign the guestbook, we could not find it when we were there.
We had a wonderful stay! Check in and check out were super easy. Mark was very responsive when we had a small unforeseen issue. We would definitely stay here in the future!
Beautiful home. Well appointed and maintained. Could not ask for a better location - 5-min or less walk to the beach and a short bike ride to the Village. We look forward to returning.
