Dont rent this home. We spent our entire vacation reporting problems and waiting to get them fixed. We had to wait until 10pm our first night to get sheets delivered after calling 3 times. Only one shower to use until it got repaired in the middle of the week. All other items never got repaired while we were there.
The home is in the process of a remodel and should have never been rented out in the condition it was in.

Q: We have one dog.....a 7 yr old large lab mix. Would that be allowed?
- Charles S. Posted: 03/25/2018
Unfortunately this particular home has a pet policy that only permits dogs under 30 lbs. We are not able to obtain approval for larger dogs at this property.
Q: Where is the access to the loft? Is the access via stairs or a ladder?
- Beth (Mrs. HS Etheridge) E. Posted: 05/03/2018
The loft in Ellington By the Sea is accessed via ladder-style stairs at the corner of the living area and kitchen. Review the living, dining, kitchen photos of the house for images to show.
