The location on the beach and the large deck and open floor plan made this house awesome. We had some issues with an electrical outlet shock and gas smell from furnace. The outlet issue was addressed but waiting for repair of the furnace issue was inconvenient.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We are glad you enjoyed the home. We apologize for the issues you encountered while in your home. The owner was able to call out a professional repair company and the furnace is up and running and fully functional so future guests will not encounter this issue. We hope to have the chance to impress you in the future!

The house was beautiful everything it said it was. Great location with great views.

We loved this house. It was ample space for our family. The home is in a great location and we loved having our own beach access. The kitchen is well overstocked but lacking in forks and small spoons. We couldn't see out the windows as they were very dirty however there was a storm the day we arrived. The home had no blankets but many pillows. The walls were very dirty and scratched up. We did enjoy our stay and all the pros outweigh the smaller details.

Hurricane Sally almost sent us somewhere else due to a deck repair that was needed afterward but Misty at the local office was kind enough to expedite the deck repair before our trip. She and the maintenance crew were great and we were so thankful to everyone that went above and beyond for us. The house is perfect for a beach vacation and we will definitely be back! A shower door was messed up in one bathroom but nothing that was a big deal after all we had been through just to get there so no complaints from us!

Can’t say enough about how beautiful the beach is. Star watching from the huge deck is so relaxing. Having chairs & umbrellas set up every morning is great. Kitchen stocked well with cooking supplies. Beds are fair. Cleanliness is fair.

Our family has stayed here for 3 years in a row! The private beach and greatly location is worth every penny!
Karen L. Aug 2020
This house is easy to fall in love with due to it's very private location and beach! The 4 bedroom/4 bath set up gives visitors plenty of space. Unfortunately, this house was not clean at all! We arrived with cleaning products of our own due to covid -- and spent the first part of our vacation re-cleaning this home. The kitchen counters and backsplash had not been wiped down, one of the toilets appeared to be completely overlooked, and doors and door handles were sticky and disgusting! At this price point, I expect more!
Manager response:
Karen, we apologize for the house not being cleaned as thoroughly as is our standard. Please know that local staff is available to assist with any cleanliness issues you encounter while in the home. We hope to get the chance to host you again, thank you.

Love the 4 BR and 4 Baths
On the beach is wonderful!
Brenda M. Jun 2020
The house was amazing. Had just about everything you would need for cooking, baking, entertaining, etc. Right on the beach. We had a great time! Beautiful home!

quiet part of the beach with the nearest condo several blocks away
Alina F. Mar 2020
The pictures do not do it justice. Great house. Clean, updated, huge living area, spectacular outdoor deck overlooking the beach. All rooms have private baths and you can’t be any closer to the ocean. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars.
You’ll need to be careful with some rusty nails on the deck and one of the bedrooms’ bed is quite hard.
Manager response:
Thank you for providing feedback, Alina. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed this home! We appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention, and we'll be sure to address any issues on the deck. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The staff, especially Wendy was very helpful as we were making reservations and response to an electrical problem by the staff was very prompt .

Other than the master bedroom TV not working all week, all was well.
Manager response:
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at this home, but are sorry for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world-class service.
Janine M. Sep 2018
Beautiful view, nice to have 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms- layout of house is very nice.
Susan S. Sep 2018
Wave watcher was a great choice for space and comfort. The stairs to the beach were broken and we were asked not to use them. They are definitely too steep and should be rebuilt similar to wave Catcher.
