“Six bedrooms But Could Use A Bit of Maintenance”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

First let me say we enjoyed our stay at the "B" Hive and would return. The facility can accommodate a large group with its six bedrooms and has an acceptable amount of room for conversational seating and eating. (Although a bit tight on the eating aspect.) It has a extremely nice and clean pool area. There was even an outdoor gas grill! Over the years we have stayed at a number of second row houses in this very same area. No doubt these rental units get a lot of wear and tear and they show it. The "B" Hive was no different. While the front porches were very pleasant those nice rocking chairs could certainly use some paint as could all the outside railings. The railing on the porch off the living room was loose and some day, if not repaired, could be a problem. That porch also had a serious water leak during rains that left a very small area that was dry enough for seating. Also, one of the group got their foot snagged by a protruding nail - which is no longer protruding. It would also be nice if there were a few more towel racks in the bathrooms. While we haven't had to do it before, you may want to bring some hangers for the closets. The house is meant for large groups and that needs to be kept in mind in regards to these types of details. But, as anyone that owns a house knows there is always something on it that needs to be done. With just a little bit of work the "B" Hive could be a really nice place for that $3,974 a week (including taxes and "other charges" - we brought our own linens.) But, looking at the big picture we did enjoy our stay and none of these rather minor observations would stop us from returning. Also, I should add this is the first time we used Surfside Realty Company and we were very happy with them not only during the rental process but in getting a fast response from them when the stove malfunctioned.

“Lovely, comfortable accomodations for a crowd. Great location, too!”
Reviewed 15 May 2013 for a stay in April 2011

This was the perfect place for our family reunion. The B Hive had everything we needed and more. The kitchen has more pots, pans, and small appliances than anyone could possibly need for meal preparations, as well as dishes and implements to eat with. It is clean, comfortable and wonderfully decorated. Everyone had their own space and there was also plenty of space to be together. The porches provide a wonderful place to enjoy the warm days in the comfort of a rocking chair in the shade. We totally enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for a wonderful time!!
