Perfect house to be in during quarantine! Lay out was perfect for our family! 6 adults and 6 children. Lots of room. Great deck. Enjoyed the closeness to the water! Had a few mechanical problems but Vacasa staff responded quickly.

This is a great house with lots of room. All on one floor! Needs more dish towels and chairs in porch. A few of the beds were bad but I guess that comes with being a rental

We couldn’t have asked for more! The house was recently completely renovated and is gorgeous. It was spotless When we got there and everything was in working order. The kitchen has two of every appliance and there are two washers/dryers. There are plenty of all kinds of kitchen supplies. The kids loved their bunk bed bedroom and adults loved the huge island in the kitchen. The house is close to town but far enough that it is quiet and you don’t get town traffic. The beach was not overcrowded. What a great place to stay! We can’t wait to go again!!!

Family reunion was why we rented. HVAC system has digital thermostats and had to beg to get owner to allow us to have the code to control them. Even w the codes...was constant hassle to get temp regulated. Found biting bugs in 2 beds....had to have exterminator assure us it was not bed bugs & spray. 2 beds had dirty sheets. Otherwise, place was spotless. One oven didn’t work and the other was basically worthless. Several mattresses were bad and creaky. Property manager was very responsiive. All else about the property was great & as advertised.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read you had some difficulties with your stay. The exterminator confirmed there were no bugs in the home. We have verified the mattresses are in good condition and that both ovens are working. Thank you!

Everything we needed and much more. Spacious, well appointed rooms with wonderful views throughout. Duplicate appliances and long dining table were so convenient for our big group. Extra family room was a perfect hideaway for the kids. Kitchen was well stocked. Favorite experience was sitting on the rocking chairs on the porch listening and watched the waves. So tranquil.

We loved the location. The house was really nice and roomy for our group of 11. The kitchen was extra nice -- two stoves, 3 refrigerators,2 ice makers (one did not work) 2 microwaves and 2 dishwashers. Pots, pans, baking dishes, utensils, serving plates, etc were more than ample. Also a bar area that was very well stocked.We did have a few issues. First, you cannot adjust the heat or air. The owner does that remotely. I had to call for assistance. Vacasa staff were helpful and got things going in a timely manner. But, while we were there the weather went from rain and cold to sunny and warm so we went from cold to hot with no way to go from heat to air on our own. The mattresses on some beds really need to be changed. Adults will not be comfortable on some. Note too that although there are 6 bedrooms, 7 baths -- one bedroom does not have an en-suite bathroom. There is also a nice little game room with ping pong table and beach toys. The smaller living
area/kitchen/bedroom/deck wing would be handy if you have more than one family. All in all, it was very nice for a large family or group.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Anita! The owner does control the thermostat, and we apologize if this made it difficult for you to get comfortable quickly. We will share your comment regarding the mattresses with the owner. We hope to see you again!

Plenty of space for everyone ! Clean ! Could use more bath towels, kitchen towels, trash bags, dish washing tablets , and some type of cleaner (spic and span) to keep counters clean !
Manager response:
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! We do provide a starter pack of paper towels, trash bags, dishwasher detergent, etc. and after that, we do ask that our guests provide their own. Thank you for your feedback!
