Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This house is very clean, and the yard well groomed. The neighborhood is very quiet, with people walking, who pleasantly greet you in passing. Parking is about 8 or 9 steps from the front door. All the amenities needed for a pleasant no hassle vacation are provided. Owners are available to answer questions. The kitchen and laundry rooms are small, still they have everything readily available for your use. Other rooms are quite spacious. Bathrooms are modern, and updated. The patio at the rear of the house is fairly secluded, and spacious. There is plenty of closet space. The whole house has been tastefully decorated. The pictures of this property are what you get. Certainly beats a motel room, for the same price.

Management response:

Thanks so much for the review and for being a great guest. We appreciate your positive comments! We welcome you back anytime you are in the area!

Reviewed 14 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The home was very lovely and accommodating for my 2 parents, friend and myself. The large master bedroom is very roomy and on the 1st floor. The bath is updated with a large tub but no shower. The kitchen is a galley type but has everything you need. No dishwasher though. The stairs leading upstairs are narrow and steep but very manageable for my friend and myself but would not be good for my parents who are in their 80's. The upstairs bedroom is accommodating and adequate with a large closest. The bathroom is small, has a shower and nicely decorated.

Overal, the home was perfect for our stay over the weekend. It's close to the shops and the Tides Inn. We hope to return for another visit soon. We love it.

Management response:

Mary was a wonderful guest! She was great at communicating with us and left the house in good shape. We welcome her back anytime!
