The home itself was fine. It is old, but it was clean and charming if you appreciate vintage. Plenty of room. Beach was beautiful. BUT.......
We did not bring the kids bikes because it was written that there were two available at the house. When we got there, that was not the case. There was one, broken up, no rim and shoved under the porch. I had to rent two bikes, which was expensive.
There are two bathrooms in the home, the toilet in one was broken and would not flush. I was told about it upon check-in, it was not fixed until the last day of our departure.
Our grill had no gas, when I called the housekeeper she was " 1.5 away, but would replace when she got back". I had brought food to grill, but problems with tank took so long, we ordered pizza that night.
Lastly, and this is a big one, for me. When we arrived and pulled into the drive-way, I thought I had the wrong house because of the 3 people hanging in the driveway. I shortly realized it was the woman and her family that lived in the apartment of the house. I was not informed that other people lived there.
They often hung out in there "patio" area, which is directly under the front wrap-around porch. They are CHAIN smokers, loud, and the woman, when alone, talks on her phone continuously. I get migraines from smoke and it was over powering. The smoke came directly into porch area. I was unable to sit on the porch, enjoy the sound of the waves and read as I usually would. It was awkward to be outside. My kids were upset over it.

We were a bit hesitant because this is an older house and it is hard to see the interior with the pictures posted, but the house turned out to be extremely clean and well refurbished to look like new! Also has a great variety of amenities for having a wonderful vacation at the beach. Welcome letter explained everything we needed to know. We would definitely recommend this house.
