This house was booked because of its location right on the water, which is a convenience that we really enjoyed. The beach itself was quiet and never a crowd, also another great plus to its location. The spacious porch had a nice view, and the photos of that space were a selling point for us when booking. However, it was not quite as appealing as the photos led us to believe. We found the porch to be sandy upon arrival, the sills of the windows were filthy, the furniture weather molded , and screen damaged in door leading to beach, leading to more insects allowed in. No problems with cleanliness on the inside, aside from linens. Sheets & towels provided by linen service were fine, but when placing those sheets on the beds it became obvious that, with stained mattress pads, soiled pillows, and comforters, none of these items had been cleaned in some time. Overall, we were satisfied with our choice, but feel that it was just an average stay. Which is a shame, because if given the attention, this place COULD be exceptional.
