Short trip to Pier Beach and bait shop

House was as promised. My family enjoyed the amenities, the game room, the pool and access to the beach.
Julie T. Nov 2021
I was not scheduled to stay at this house, but due to a relocation after issues with another house my party ended up here. Honestly based on the reviews I was more than a little concerned. But there was no need to worry. Also several reviews complained the house was dirty. I can say that for our stay IT WAS CLEAN! Overall it's a very nice house. One person complained of how dated it was.... it's not top of the line, but I'd hardly call it dated. This house had everything we needed, except a working elevator. This house is 4 levels and there is no master on the top floor which is the main living area (not a critique, just a fact. I generally look for one floor living space due to my husband's bad back - also why we wanted a house with an elevator), so this was an issue for some in our party who struggle with stairs. If the elevator had been functioning it would have been perfect for our party. We were told this in advance though, so it was not a surprise upon arrival and given our circumstances we were just thrilled to have a house to relocate to. It has nice ocean views from the top deck and a public walkover very near the house. The neighborhood was quiet and well kept. The kitchen was well stocked with everything except storage containers so pack some ziploc bags or containers for leftovers. While it's listed as an 8 bedroom, there is a 9th area in the basement with 2 twins plus a trundle and extra mattress that could be perfect for older kids. With 6 other king rooms and 2 bunk rooms there was more than enough space for everyone. We enjoyed our stay at Castaway Avon.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback, Julie. We are so glad you enjoyed your time in this home. We are so sorry the elevator was not functioning during your visit. Since your stay, a brand new modern elevator with child-safe features has been installed to service each floor. Additionally there have been many other upgrades throughout the home. We look forward to having the opportunity to impress you in the future!

Filthy house. Terrible maintenance and terrible help from the realtor. The worst beach house we have ever rented!
Manager response:
Joyce, we sincerely apologize for the disappointing experience. Since your stay the homeowner has invested significantly towards repairs and upgrades to this home. The home has been completely modernized throughout and has undergone many cosmetic improvements. The home has been extensively deep cleaned and now meets our standard of cleanliness and presentation. Thank you for your feedback and we hope you will allow us the opportunity to provide you with a truly exceptional vacation experience in the futu
Heather W. Sep 2021
Home had plenty of rooms for our large group. Plenty of activities to do. Beds were very comfy. However, the home is in need up updating and repairs. Some of the fans are about to fall out of the ceiling, the shower curtains are all ripped and moldy, there is mold on some of the ceilings. Outdoor areas were filthy, including areas around the pool. Outdoor showers didn't work. Hot tub leaks a few inches a day. We found a huge cockroach in the bathroom. Overall, would not stay there again.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Heather. We are so glad you had a nice time overall but apologize for the details that were amiss. Since your stay the ceiling fans have been addressed along with many other repairs and upgrades which include Built to Last exterior deck loungers, chairs, and tables. This home has been extensively cleaned and everything now works as it should. Thank you for your feedback and we hope you will allow us the opportunity to provide you with a truly exceptional vacation experience in the future.

ABSOLUTELY AVOID THIS HOUSE!!! Based on the pictures, location, and price we were all excited to spend a week’s long vacation at this beautiful house. Instead, it was like walking into a college frat house and way below everyone’s expectations. The weekly rental rate is much higher than the value you actually get.

We placed a call Monday morning to the rental agency about both outdoor showers not working (they turned on, but the water leaked out of the pipes prior to the shower head so they were unusable) and to inquire about one of the mini-fridges sitting outside, unplugged on the top deck. We were told someone would be out later that day to address our concerns. We called back Tuesday and were told the ticket was still open and again someone would be out that day. No one ever came out and figured it wasn’t worth a third call since we’ve dealt with not having the outdoor showers and the second mini-fridge for over half the week. Both issues were still outstanding by the time we checked-out to come home.

We’d recommend leaving your beach carts at home unless you have one that can easily go up and down steps. Both beach access boardwalks have lot of steps. The kitchen is smaller than we expected. There’s really only room for about 2 people to move around comfortably. And the stove/oven could use an upgrade. Most of the burners are not level and the oven got hot, but took 3-4 times longer to cook then normal.

Overall, we made do with what we had. It is an 8 bedroom beach house, with a pool, and that’s relatively close to the beach. For the amount of money we paid, this house was a complete disappointment. One positive was the updated mattresses.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jeff. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay and we sincerely apologize for the maintenance issues you experienced. Our local team strives to provide every one of our guests with the best vacation possible and we are so sorry if our standards were not met during your time with us. We confirm that both outside showers have been repaired and are in working order. An appliance vendor examined both mini-fridges and replaced one. The stove and oven have also been serviced and are now working properly. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with the beach access. Unfortunately, all the boardwalks in the area contain steps. We hope to be afforded the opportunity to impress you in the future.

Big house but needs lots of attention. Carpets filthy in all bedrooms, loose deck boards on top level, never could use pool as it wasn't cleaned until the day before we left and entire pool area dirty with mold and things left from previous renters. A burner out on stove, front door wouldn't lock, no shower heads, dirty dishes in cabinets & both dishwashers, tubs of dirty linens left from previous 2 renters!
Manager response:
Thank you for providing your valuable feedback, James. We are sorry for any issues you encountered during your stay. Please know our local staff is always available to assist if there are amenities in the home that fall short and works hard to address any issues our guests found during their visit. We confirm the carpet has been cleaned and additional spiffs have been added to the regular schedule. The coastal weather is a salty and corrosive environment on metal nails but the deck is safe. The oven and stove as well as the outside showers have been serviced and are in working order. The pool and surrounding deck have been inspected and cleaned. This home has triple lock specialty doors, the levers need to be lifted up to lock. We apologize for the cleanliness oversights you found and we have addressed them with our housekeeping manager to ensure they are following our strict guidelines when preparing the property for our future guests. While we understand this doesn't make up for the disappointing experience, we hope that the refund provided shows our commitment to your satisfaction and our intention to make things right. We hope you give us a chance to host you next time. Thank you.

We just returned from our family vacation. I liked the privacy. There were very few people on the beach surrounding the home; They pool was also pretty secluded from the neighbors. I would recommend bringing your own linens. We had some trouble with the outdated dryer and stove. Other than that, the house met all of our needs.
Manager response:
Hi, Jacqueline! It was our pleasure hosting you and we are glad the location of our home worked well for you. We confirm the dryer and stove have been serviced and are now working properly. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
