Adequate accomodation

This was an adequate rental for two adults considering the price and location. The house is conveniently located a very short drive to the beach and local grocery store. Interior of the house was very clean, however linens need to be replaced. There was a very large stain on the mattress pad upon inspection. The living space could use some updating as it was like staying at Grandma's house. There is a nice, newer sun porch off to the side however. The kitchen is large and functional and there was plenty of room for two. I think this space would be tight for more than 4 adults or a small family. Be warned that the exterior of the house has a ton of garden variety spiders. The outdoor deck and furniture could have used a cleaning and the grill needs replacement, as it was quite dirty. This was an adequate rental.

Not a good experience for our young family

The kitchen & dining room were very clean. The rest of the house was not. We had to sweep dead flies from the entry floor and wipe cobwebs off the slanted ceilings in the second floor rooms right over the beds. We had ants in the bathroom. The house layout was not suitable for a vacation house. The "master bedroom" had a flimsy screen partitioning it from the family room. That room had old, uncomfortable couches with slipcovers that we just didn't want to sit on. The decor was outdated (to be kind). I would not recommend this rental to anyone with young children as ours had to navigate steep steps to the second floor and there was no bathroom upstairs. We tried to use the grill one night but it was left filthy and for the life of me I could not get it to light. The kitchen cabinets were adequately stocked (plates, pots, etc...) and the appliances were new and clean. We appreciated the outside shower. Our kids find anyplace new to be an adventure. We however would not stay here again.

The property is fairly well maintained. Wall colors were appealing. We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen, the updated enclosed porch that had new windows when we wanted fresh air. The open back porch was great in the morning. Great to have the outdoor shower as well as the one inside. The backyard is spacious and has nice shade trees, a swing, and a large picnic table and great nearly any time of day. We were less than a block from the Wassawoman trail that we used several times for a walk. And the price was great. It worked well for our extended family - 2 grandchildren, daughter and son-in-law, 1 adult single daughter, 2 grandparents. One drawback is that unless you are used to road noise, you must keep the windows closed at night in order to sleep soundly. Another drawback is there is a thin room divider between the master bedroom and the livingroom so not much privacy if you have someone sleeping on the pullout sofa sleeper in the living room.
