Our group consisted of 6 adults and 3 children. Children were 3,6 and 10. Adults ranged in age from 29-64. We were excited about the house. Everyone had their own room and private bath. I was concerned that everyone wouldn't have a private bath, but every bedroom has one plus 2 additional half baths on the 1st and 3rd floors. Also a large outdoor shower that has hot and cold water and is perfect for rinsing off sand. We cooked some and ordered take out. The grill was a bit small. I would definitely pay the extra fee for a gas grill. We stayed the 18-25 of August and did not need the pool heated. The charcoal grill provided was just too small.
We read the review about the spiders, dirty floor and rusted refrigerator. I brought it up to the real estate company (Elan) when we checked in. There are a lot of spiders. There were 3 or 4 in the week we were there along with a couple of crickets. We were told not to leave outdoor lights on and had minimal problems. Socks or flip flops were necessary in the house. I don't think the hard floors were dirty. I think after all summer the rugs needed to be cleaned, The rust on the refrigerator is minor and is from the salt air. It did not effect how well the fridge worked Everything worked as expected except the 1st floor refrigerator. It would have been great to have the use of it for drinks while we were in the pool. That was the only negative. Wednesday morning my niece had a large water stain on her rug. Elan sent someone out to repair the leaky AC that morning. Someone also came to measure for a new fridge up and downstairs and also to check on the pool and hot tub. We all loved the house and would stay there again. The owner decorated the house beautifully. Thank you for renting your house and letting our family enjoy it! To Elan (our rental agency) thank you for checking in on us and making sure everything was alright. It wasn't just alright it was fantastic!
