“Mary Lee by the Sea was Good to Me”
Reviewed December 16, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Wonderful floor plan featuring 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on either side of the greatroom...great for privacy. Lovely screened-in porch with lots of deck chairs...great beach access. Furnishings were in good shape and comfortable. The galley style kitchen was a bit challenging for having several cooks working together and although it was adequately equipped, it was disorganized. Would have preferred to have full size beds in the room with twin beds. The deck was sheltered from wind and set back to allow privacy from neighboring homes. Management responded promptly when an issue arose...in the evening befor Thanksgiving! The best house we have stayed in over the last 20 years...and allowed a small dog!

“A fabulous beachfront vacation home!”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Mary Lee by the Sea is by far the best vacation rental I have ever experienced- just steps away from the beach. All rooms on one floor was wonderful for us elder visitors. The whole family enjoyed the screened in porch and ample deck space. The décor was lovely.. I loved the pine paneling and wood floors. The house was well maintained. A repair to one step on the walkway to the beach was made shortly after a call to the real estate office. We could not have been happier with this home.

“Great Location but house had problems”
Reviewed September 17, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

While the location was excellent, the house showed lack of proper maintenance! Door locks were hard to operate, filters in A/C were dirty and vents filthy, screen doors were broken, and a ceiling fan was installed without power. Agent addressed these and a couple of other issues promptly, however two maintenance calls in a week are unacceptable. The house has a wonderful floor plan but the owner needs to take better care of the property.

We welcome constructive criticism but politely disagree that this home lacks proper maintenance. Yours is the first negative review on this home. This homeowner schedules a professional contractor to inspect and make upgrades regularly. Oceanfront homes are exposed to corrosive elements making them even more susceptible to wear and tear. The way to handle such issues is to send maintenance, which as you say, we did. We look forward to seeing you back on our beautiful beach soon!

4 out of 5 stars and a 2015 re-booking at Mary Lee by the Sea must mean you did have, as you say, a great week despite the less than stellar start to your stay. Fortunately, the A/C was quickly revived on the "hot" side of the house once it was reported. Look forward to having you back next summer!
