The house is located directly on the beach on the north end of the island. Location is two blocks from the only grocery store. The upstairs unit consist of 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen and large common area with a TV. There is a 12 x 28 porch at this level where you can sit a watch those on the beach.
The lower level consist of 2 bedroom, full kitchen, full bath and a small table and two wicker chairs to watch TV in. The whole area is about 28 x 30 with only 1 small window AC unit in the kitchen. You can not close the bedroom doors and have AC. The lower and upper units do not connect.
The area under the house has room to park 3 cars. There is a laundry room that is shared between the two different units. All the bedrooms are only big enough for the furniture in them.
NOT SO GOOD: The whole house was NOT clean. We arrived to find sand in the showers, sand on the floors, globs of hair on the bathroom floors, cobwebs, dirt and lint on light fixtures and sofas were visibly dirty. Many things need repair or replaced.
The major things that need replaced are: Missing fire alarms and huge amount of lint buildup in the laundry room (nice fire hazard), the wiring for the whole house needs updated (another fire hazard), the mattresses - either both people sink to the middle or the springs poke you and a few are stained (gross). The gas grill was so filthy rendering it unusable. The charcoal grill had a hanger for a lid handle and was also filthy. We did request a different grill and we were brought a new charcoal grill the following day. The vacuums do not suck so you are unable to really clean up the sand. The showers were very slow draining so you stood in mid shin water while you showered. Some of the ceiling fans are so wobbly that they could only be used on the lowest setting. The outdoor shower for the lower unit handle was broke off so unusable. Screen in lower unit door broken out.
We did have a great time together as a family but were disappointed in the overall cleanliness and repair of the house for the $5000 + we paid for the week. After a long drive from the Midwest we expected better.
