“Just OK. Needs repairs.”
Reviewed October 3, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

I rented this property for a girls trip, 9/27/2017 through 10/1/2017. There were ten of us "girls".

PROS: View and access to beach was awesome. Open floor plan was great and we had plenty of dining room/living room seating. Both bathroom showers had plenty of hot water and plenty of water pressure to get a good shower, however the master bath did stand water to your ankles when taking a shower. Plenty of clean towels. There was a washer/dryer. Plenty of beach chairs. The owner's art work was nice.

CONS: The mold. It was on the a/c vents and the house had a very strong musky smell. The tub in the master bath would stand water to your ankles when taking a shower. I called Kaiser about this on the second day of our stay and the representative said someone would come check. Nobody ever showed up. Also, the master bath toilet was loose from the floor. Both front and back decks need repairs. You could easily get a splinter. In fact, my sister cut her toe on a protruding nail head. The carpeting seemed dirty, but it could have just been old carpet. This unit sleeps 10, and we had ten in our party, however, there are only nine forks in the utensil drawer. Both sliding doors were very difficult to latch.

I won't be renting this unit again.
