“Nice views, poor upkeep.”

The view from the back porch is very nice, and the lagoon is a lot of fun for swimming, a bit of fishing, and general relaxation. Getting to the beach can be a bit of a chore, requiring crossing a busy road, and either walking a good distance down the same busy road with no sidewalk areas, or cutting through a private beach access. There is a far nicer public beach a little bit down the road towards the pier that is a short drive, and has ample free parking though.

There is nothing really wrong with the "old school" feel of the place, it is actually quite charming. The issue is that there are a lot of smaller items that would be quite easy to fix, but just have not been. Cracked pieces of linoleum coming off a bathroom floor exposing water damaged wood, towel rails hanging tenuously, closet and entry sliding doors popping off track, drawers that require a wrestling match to close, and other such things. There were more than a few occasions when I wished I had brought a toolbox.

It would not take a lot of time or money to address these sorts of things. That they had not been addressed was a disappointment, they did not pop up overnight. If the property had been maintained, we would have already booked the place for next year. As it is, we will look for a different rental nearby.
