4284 Island Drive in a brand new house completed in 2014. We rented a beach home next door to this one the previous year and knew we wanted to rent the new one this year. Thankfully, Treasure Realty allowed us to rent to home before it was complete.
They allowed us to get the house at noon instead of the 3pm check in time because no one rented the home the week before. Thank you to Treasure Realty for allowing this! We had a total of 11 people in the home (7 adults and 4 children aged 4 through 8).
This house was beautiful!! All of the rooms were clean upon our arrival. We had no issues with anything that had to do with cleanliness on the home itself. We did email Treasure Realty about the hot tub. The water had a green tint to it and did not look 100% safe to get in. We contacted the realty company and someone was out there on Monday to drain it, clean it and prime it! We were using it for the rest of the week! We also contacted Treasure about the internet which would not connect. That was fixed with in the hour!!
The home is a second row house. The great thing (as of Sept 2014) is there are currently no home in front of it. We do know that a home will be built in front of it soon. We had an unobstructed view of the ocean. We also had a brand new private beach access which does have seating built in to it. Obviously the neighboring homes can use it, but that did not happen too much.
The master bedroom has the largest bathroom of any in the home. The remaining two king bedrooms have decent size bathrooms while the bunk bed rooms and queen room has rather small bathrooms. A single adult occupied the queen room so he had no issues with the bathroom. All of the King bathrooms and queen bathrooms came with a shower stall and no tubs while the bunk rooms did have a shower/tub combo.
We did not rent any linens but I can tell you that the beds were very comfortable. All of the people in our group had no complaints about the beds.
The kitchen was great. No issues with any appliances. My only suggestion would be to bring an extra coffee maker. Having 7 total adults in the home, the one full sized coffee make in the home just didn't cut it. We used that one for the decaf drinker in the house and the one we brought for the regular coffee.
There isn't a large ice maker in the house but the refrigerator in the kitchen does have a through the door ice maker. If you need more ice, just buy a few bags and keep them in the full sized refrigerator that is found on the first level.
The dishwasher did a great job of cleaning all of the dishes.
The silverware was well stocked, but lacked a few items. We are a lot of seafood and the home does not come with crab shell crackers or crab forks. We purchased them for a couple of bucks and left them in the home for the next renters to use.
The dining room table had enough room for all 11 of us to eat around. We used the other table for puzzles and games.
The seating area and dining area offers many windows. Every where you sit on the top floor you can see the ocean!! Wonderful views!!
The outdoor shower with hot water was great for getting the sand off. There was also a garden hose hook up as well.
The home does not have any video games, karaoke machines, etc. We did not need any of that to have fun anyways!!
We would definitely rent this home again next year or recommend it to others!!
