The pool and deck are nice. The beach access is nice and makes you feel like you have a private beach. The ping pong and pool tables provided los of evening fun. The kitchen is very spacious, the two refrigerators provide plenty of storage space and the two dishwashers provide ample cleaning capability for a large family. There is only one, small sink that bottlenecks any water-related activities.
This is a $2 million beach front home and it has several issues that I did not expect. There is no door on the bunk bed room, but since kids sleep there and might be going to bed before the rest of the family, a renter might want to know that.
There are around 30 vertical steps that you have to navigate to get to the beach and it makes taking a cooler, or beach gear, slightly difficult for anyone other than 20-somethings.
The beds are not comfortable- they feel cheap and lumpy like a college futon.
There was a bad odor in the house that lasted the week.
The wifi is extremely slow and the wifi range is limited to one corner of the first floor.
No cable for the family room TV and no batteries in the remotes.
Lacking decent kitchenware like pots/pans-for example, there is no omelette pan, and the can opener is broken.
These might be first world problems, but this is a competitive market and I would not expect to have to worry about these details.
