“Comfortable home with lots of room!”
Reviewed April 20, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Jerome responded immediately and made booking so simple! The bedrooms are big and the beds are comfortable. The two bathrooms and 3 sink areas works very well for several people. There is a great shower and a nice laundry room. There are TVs in every room! Internet works great. The location is good - only a few feet to a quiet private beach. There was a discount for Monday & Tuesday (yea!). The only problems were house things - microwave needs a fix and the AC needed some maintenance.

“Smells like cigarettes, overpriced”
Reviewed October 25, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The listing stated "from $269/night" but we were charged $409/night on a non-holiday off season weekend. NOT WORTH IT! Supposed to be beach front but 5 houses from beach. Place smelled of cigarette smoke. Leak in kitchen so floor constantly wet. Only two wine glasses. We even had to bring our own toilet paper!

I'm sorry you felt your stay was "not worth it". I'll respond to each of your issues:
1. I explained the charges to you before your trip. Weekend rates are higher than weekday rates. $269 is the daily average for a 7 day stay. The rates are visible to you before you pay and you must confirm them. I'm not sure why you booked if you didn't like the pricing. Please understand that whether you stay for 1 night or 7 nights, I have to pay the same amount for cleaning, linens, and management fees.

2. Our home is advertised as Beachside. Not beach front. The description clearly states that and the pictures show our home is not "on the beach". Again.. this information is available prior to booking.

3. I'm sorry about the cigarette smell. We have a strict no smoking policy, but unfortunately, not everyone follows the rules. Our cleaning crew does their best to get rid of any residual smoke smell.

4. I was unaware of the leak in the kitchen. We do our best to maintain the house, but if we don't know about a problem, we can't fix it. We appreciate it very much when our guests identify any problems and let us know. So thank you. I'll get this taken care of immediately.

5. We had at least 8 wine glasses there. One of the guests must have broken some or they accidentally packed them with their things. It happens. But again, we don't know until we inventory or a guest lets us know. So thank you. I'll get another set of wine glasses. Toilet paper is one of those items we can't seem to stock. It ends up missing or disappearing and we make it clear to guests that paper products are not included. I wish we could keep it stocked like a hotel, but it's not a hotel. It's a rental home. We rent through TripAdvisor when we travel and have always had to bring our own paper products. It's a common practice among rental homes.

I do wish you would have had a better experience. Most of our guests are very happy with the pricing, accommodations, amenities, and location. All I can tell you is that if you would have called or contacted me about any of these issues, I would have done my best to remedy them. I could have given you a credit for toilet paper, sent the cleaning crew back over to try to get rid of the smell, had maintenance check out the water leak and had some more wine glasses delivered. I can't fix it if I don't know about it. I wish you would have called me. :(

“Perfect Family Get Together”
Reviewed October 8, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

rented the house for a family get together- It was comfortable. The three bedrooms, two baths, and large living area was a perfect fit for our get away. Loved the large porch too!
I would return and will tell others about the house and location.

Thank you for the kind words Shearon. We are glad you had a good time and look forward to another visit from you in the future. I'm really glad the red tide stayed away from the island for your trip.

“Would Stay Here Again!”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The house was very nice and close to the beach. We would definitely stay here again. The only negative comment is the door handle & bottom lock needs to be replaced. We couldn't get it to work and had to get another key.

Thank you for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself and we were able to get the lock situation remedied for you. Unfortunately, the salt air corrodes anything metal and even door locks are not immune to the sea air. It's just part of beach life. We do our best to keep the house maintained and it's helpful when guests let us know if anything needs to be done. Otherwise, we don't know until we get here ourselves. Thanks again!!!

“Awesome!!”
Reviewed June 17, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed three nights and enjoyed every bit of it! When we walked in it was clean, open concept which made it large. They had nice appliances in the kitchen and alot of extras that i was not expecting. There was a blender, griddle , can opener, microwave, full stove and even a toaster oven! The washer and dryer was a front load washer and very nice we enjoyed all the updates in the house. Every room was decorated so nice with the beach scene and bathrooms all nice with all updates including nice roomy showers. Close walk to beach i think this house was 4th from beach. The double driveway/ patio areas great. to BBQ on either side or entertain.
The owner was very nice to work with, Jerry and i worked out several times working over the invoice and was quick and wonderful about it!! I would recommend this beach house to anyone and would come back when we have another family gathering.
Thanks again!!

“Private, clean, quiet, comfortable and very accessible for the beach.”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I can't imagine how frustrating it must be renting a home like this so I won't be too picky. Home was clean. AC and showers worked great. Only had 4 chairs for beach. No umbrella and very limited pots and pans. Buy hey my family had a great time and I will keep the phone number for next year and have already told our friends about the house for their vacation. Thanks. Hopefully we can do it again next year.

Thank you for you comments. We had a few more chairs and an umbrella at the house, but sometimes these things come up missing. We'll get some more. I'll have to check on the pots and pans situation. We were well stocked last month, but again, sometimes items just come up missing. We do our best to keep a good stock on hand. It helps us when guests let us know about missing items, so thank you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay despite the minor shortcomings you mentioned. We look forward to future visits from you.
