This house was not one block from the beach/pool it was a 5minute bike ride along a road that was the major road around the neighborhood. The house had 3 levels. The basement housed one of the bedrooms and 2 futons. It smelled like mold down there. The middle level A frame had all glass with only one window with a window treatment allowing the full day sun to beat in! The stand up air conditioner did not do an adequate job to cool the living room/kitchen. The 2 bedrooms on that level were not cooled at all (fans were provided). The upstairs bedroom had its own bathroom and the stand up air conditioner worked well but the loudness of it next to my bed made for a less than pleasant sleep.
The Hideout property itself was nice. The pool and beach were nice. The Tiki bar was a nice place to get a drink in the afternoon. There was adequate parking at the pool/beach. The gym is on the North part of the property which was a bit longer of a drive than I liked and cost per person for its use. All trash and recycling had to be driven to a collection area. Travel to the gym and trash were complicated by construction on the only main road around the property.
There are things to do in the area but most things are about 30 minutes from the Hideout. There is a grocery store, pharmacy, quickmart, a bar and Italian Restaurant on the road close to the Hideout.
William was very easy to communicate with and replied quickly to my calls/emails.
Everything was great, the whole house and the owner was very accommodating would definitely stay again given then chance.
We enjoyed our visit and stay at the Hideout in Hamlin, Pa. The owner was very accommodating and everything was just as described. The house is in a very pretty gated community. We saw deer most everyday and my grandson and I enjoyed climbing on the rocks behind the house. You are close to everything you need yet far enough away to feel very relaxed while you are there. We would stay here again!
The location was amazing, great views that made everything else even greater! Cozy, comfortable, and very spacious. The owner was very available for questions whenever needed was a huge help. Overall, we had a lovely stay.
Close to everything. Great beach & Pool. Hung out at the TiKi Bar and relaxed looking at the beautiful scenery
