I loved the spaciousness of the top floor, the second floor's bedrooms with its own den, and the bottom floor for private entertainment as well as the easy access to the pool/hot tub....
Loved the fireplace best of all.
Christina G.Oct 2022
A really nice home to vacation at. All beds & furniture very comfortable. Only drawback is No info on how to use the various TV’s is the house. After 24 hrs. someone at Vacasa was finally able to help. For future use, I personally left the instructions on how to use main TV. Instructions would have been really helpful, otherwise a great stay. All the cookware & utensils were of good quality. Back next year!

Wonderful vacation home away from home! You can’t beat the view and waking up each morning to a beautiful sunrise on the Oceanfront! It was also close to stores and places to go out to as well. The kitchen was well stocked and was the perfect space for a family Vacation! Can’t wait to someday enjoy another stay here!

Loved the ocean front, the hot tub, was close to the pier, the shops, and restaurants.

Great layout in this home. Loved the access to a bathroom and refrigerator for cold drinks on the first floor just off the pool deck! Nice new smarts tvs and comfortable furniture in this house. Kitchen was well equipped. Beautiful ocean views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. Plenty of outdoor furniture plus beach chairs and pool tools. Would definitely stay here again!

We totally enjoyed our stay at “Off Duty”. This property provided everything a large family could hope for on vacation. It also has a hint of rustic charm but superior accommodations. The pool area is superb with considerable privacy. The views from the upper decks are breathtaking. This vacation home is a catalyst for creating wonderful family memories that will last a lifetime!

This is our 2nd time at Off-Duty #10. We loved it so much we knew we wanted to stay again someday. The place has been upgraded a little, new flooring upstairs in the main gathering space. The house was super clean (impressive!) The pool and hottub clean and everything worked perfectly. The location is incredible, waking up to the ocean waves with coffee in the morning while setting on the top deck with your favorite people. My husband loves fishing from the pier and it's cool we can see him in the distance from the deck as he's fishing. The kids flew their kites, the surfers and board surfers were a blast to watch.
The neighborhood street is small and quiet, the people of Avon welcoming and warm. We hope to be back again someday soon.

We happened to come into town the night before a nor’easter storm hit. There wasn’t much to do on the Island the week we stayed due to the storm, however the pool table and hot tub kept 3 teenage boys and us adults occupied! The winds were so high and severe with the national weather conditions that houses went into the ocean, however we had no issues. Simply just a little shaking that knocked a picture down that ended up breaking. The company immediately got back to us and even offered to come clean up the glass. Everything you need besides food is in the enormous space! You won’t regret renting this home!! It’s absolutely stunning views are worth it even during a nor’easter!!!

The pricing is way out of control. Next year for the same week would be double what we paid this year.
Last year the TV was not the best. This year the TV was 10 times worse. All internet with poor choice of news and financial channels.
We're sorry to read the TV situation did not improve for you, Thomas. The homeowner has plans to install Roku for all the TVs next year. Thank you!

House was great. Cleaning service could do a lot better. A few dead bugs and trash left behind. One shower curtain had mold on it. Beds was made and towels was put out already which was great.

Spacious everything we needed
Debra M.Aug 2021
We loved the layout of the house, view was amazing. House is huge and very roomy, never felt crowded even with our large family. Rooms were spacious and beds comfortable. Beach was beautiful and not busy or crowded at all. The pathway to the beach was clear and not far from the house. The house was clean and well kept. Furniture was in good repair and very comfortable. Pool and hot tub were very nice and we loved them. First floor game room and fridge were a great addition. Kitchen was big and had everything we needed, loved the big refrigerator. Check in and check out were easy and we were kept informed on what we needed to do. Put in a request to have the pool light fixed online and someone was sent and fixed with within 12 hours.
The house swayed a little at times which is probably Normal for a beach house. The shower water pressure was extremely low at times which was a problem. Top screen door would not close but we left the sliding glass door closed with the ac. I would recommend the app as everything was laid out there and easily accessible.
We would 100% stay at this rental again and will refer our friends and family.

We had an awesome vacation recently staying at Off Duty. We absolutely loved the location, the ocean view from the back deck, the pool, and the large kitchen and dining area. The house configuration was perfect for us and the house was in good condition. Plan to return next year, too.
Deborah M.Jul 2021
Off Duty fit the bill for a week’s vacation with our children and grandchildren. The great location made this a perfect spot for watching fireworks off the pier. The house was comfortable and the pool was a super benefit.
Janice S.Jun 2021
For anyone renting this house, beware that it has severe water pressure issues that "will" affect your stay if you rent it.
We are very sorry you had issues with the water pressure. It is always our goal for our guests to be able to use everything the home has to offer. We hope that the refund that you were given has helped with some resolution for the issue you experienced.

We loved the location of this house by the ocean and the pool! Can’t discount the fact that we had a blast. The house is really nice but needs a little TLC. The decking had MANY jagged, loose, and rusty nails. And a very odd piece of trim in front of the sliding doors that was a pretty dangerous tripping hazard. The sliding doors were not functioning well and a few of the locks didn’t work. Almost all of the pot lights up stairs were burnt out.
As far as cleaning, the house overall appeared to be clean on the surface but we found men’s underwear covered in dust under the bed, loose pills on the deck, and our small child discovered CBD gummies under the dresser in the master. All things that could have easily been seen if the house was really cleaned.
Hi, Lisa! Maintenance is taking care of the loose boards and nails you mentioned. The trim you noticed is on all the doors and is there to keep out water/sand/debris. The home will receive a thorough inspection so we can make our cleanliness standards are being reached. Thank you!
Steve W.May 2021
This house had everything we needed to stay happy and relaxed for the whole week. The proximity to the beach was superb! The view of the ocean was unbeatable! Also the beach here was nice and wide!
The pool and hot tub were huge attractions, even though the pool was unheated. The pool was a tad cool in May, but on the 75 degree days, it was just right. Having the hot tub to escape to was perfect.
The house itself had lots of room. We didn’t even use some rooms. It was all very clean and comfortable. The finishes aren’t new by any means, but they were all functional. The dishwasher, for example, was a little beat up inside, but it worked like a charm. Shower heads and handles were a bit dated, but all working well.
We’d definitely stay here again, as it suited our family of 5 well. Our kids were 6, 9, and 13. They all loved it here and want to come back.
Devin M.Feb 2021
From the deck you can see nothing but the ocean, and the hot tub and pool tucked into the natural sand dune are amazing. Steps from the beach and more bedrooms and bathrooms than you know what to do with. Perfect for multiple families or a group of friends.
