“Perfect for families”

We had a great time here. The house was perfect for our family of 10 (6 adults/4 children). We had enough space to eat as a family, not to mention a fully stocked kitchen with all the pots, pans and utensils you would need. It's always a pain to have to bring so much with you as a family, so that helped greatly. No reason to have sandwiches all weekend. We made full family meals and cooked together with plenty of counter space. The kids had plenty of room to play in the yard or downstairs on the driveway. You can't beat s'mores and bubbles, the little lawnmower toy was a favorite for the smallest. She has asked for one for her birthday. Lol Plenty of seating and the bunk beds were awesome! We had a popcorn pajama party one night and popped in a movie. The kids now call this our "New House"!

So close to the beach you could walk. We even took a morning stroll with the kiddos down to the pier. The beach itself is small but that's part of why we chose POC. The very gradual slope of the bay floor was great for the kids. No crashing waves or undertow to worry about. They threw on their floaties and floated around us while we swam with them or relaxed in camping chairs in the water. Not a care in the world. I would highly recommend water shoes or tennies due to the amount of sharp shells. Even found some pretty large pieces of glass. But that is more of problem with other beachgoers than anything. I wish people respected the beach better and picked up after themselves. But not bad all in all.

I like that past renters left some things like condiments, laundry soap and even a few first aid items that came in handy after the beach. Little things you don't think about.

You can tell that this property is owned by a very loving and nice family. It was very homey and inviting. We had no problem pulling a bunch of chairs around the table downstairs once the kiddos went to bed and having a family card game whilst enjoying a few adult beverages. It was as if the house, the air and the situation called for it. We will definitely be back and will definitely be renting again. The rental company was very nice and we had no problem checking in or out. We even checked in earlier than we thought we could which helped out a ton and was greatly appreciated. Make sure to call ahead if you are wondering about early checkin. The cost was fair and the memories with our family will last a lifetime. Thank you so much!!

“Nice enough, but needs a detailed cleaning and some maintenance.”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

There is much to like about this vacation home:
- Great location right down the street from the beach. Very quiet -- loved that!
- Attractive exterior
- Comfortable beds
- Plenty of towels
- Clean fridge and well-stocked kitchen
- Excellent A/C
- Countertops, vanity, toilets were all clean

There are a few easy things that could be done to raise this property to "awesome" and they all have to do with cleaning and everyday maintenance:

- Air vents and vanity lights of master bath are caked with dust.
- Underneath kitchen sink and dryer needs some TLC.
- Inside and outside garbage cans need a good spray-down.
- Some kitchen items need to be replaced, such as cutting boards with permanent food stains.
- Hose sprayer and rack rusted out and are hazards.
- Chiminea was broken, but worse, filled with cigarette butts.
- Rugs were clearly matted and dirty on arrival so we washed them.
- Grill was dirty, but did not come with brush. Had to buy one and left it for next renter. In comparison, we looked at another property while we were there. Grill was clean and inside was a brush, lighter and bag of charcoal. Nice!

These are simple things that could really elevate this property. I did express these suggestions to the property management and they seemed interested in my feedback. All of this said, we would consider staying there again.
