This is a great little place. The location can't be beat in my opinion, but it most definitely needs a ton of maintenance. It is clearly not actually occupied by the owners at any point and I very much wish they had used the money from that weird, useless cocktail nook to maintain and update other parts of the house. In the end, none of the issues overshadowed the proximity to the beach enough that we wouldn't stay there again. We are already planning a trip for next year, in fact.
- The beds were extraordinarily uncomfortable
- The shower door in the master bath doesn't roll properly; you need to pick it up and drag it to close it
- I had to unclog the hallway bathroom tub since water wouldn't drain at all. It was pretty clear that it had been clogged with a ton of hair for quite a while
- The listing claims that there is an enclosed outside shower with hot water.. It's not enclosed, nor is there hot water
- The popcorn ceiling is peeling off in a number of places in the living room/kitchen
- The air vents are moldy and rusted
- The wireless controllers for the master bedroom and dining room lights/fan need to be on different channels. I would turn off the light in the dining room at night, only to find that the bedroom light had come on while my wife was asleep.
- The faucet in the hallway bathroom's tub was very loose and poorly caulked into place
- Only four bath towels are provided, so we ended up having to do the laundry very often (the washer and dryer are great, though)
- The digital display on the kitchen range is faulty, only parts of the numbers display
- The largest couch was very dirty.. It had red stains that looked like they were probably from wine being spilled on it (but I absolutely loved the chaise longue for reading at night)
- We had to move the smaller couch to block the stairs to the garage since we had a one year old with us and didn't want her falling down them. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned under the couch for months
- We saw a couple of roaches that were about 3 inches long, but only two across an entire week's trip (they could have been the same roach)
- I had to put a whole new edge on one of the kitchen knives as they were all basically square and couldn't begin to cut anything tougher than yogurt
- The drain in the driveway seems to be clogged. We had a lot of rain the first few days of the trip and it would get to be several inches deep over the drain.
