Great Family Vacation Home
Before we arrived at the property, we spoke to the management representatives about arriving early. They were very accommodating and easy to reach. Upon arrival, we found a gorgeously decorated, well maintained property with all of the amenities of home. We immediately felt at home and comfortable and over the next week, our entire family (even those staying at their timeshare at Marriott's Surfwatch) spent almost all of their time at this house. We prepared meals for up to 20 people with ease, due to the great kitchen. Unfortunately, the cooktop was electric, which didn't pose a huge problem, since we have very experienced cooks there, but it was not preferable. The elevator and fireplace are not allowed to be used, which disappointed us. Also, the jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom did not work. The managers did send over a service person right away, but it appeared that the motor was burned out, so we never were able to enjoy the jacuzzi tub as a jacuzzi. However, it was still a great tub. The pool is smaller than it looks in the photos, but it is a lovely pool and we very much enjoyed sitting next to it on sunny days. Also, the porch running along the front of the house was an area where we spent time reading, talking, and just enjoying the outdoors. There were not televisions in every room, but they were in all but 2. Some appliances, such as the electric can opener and the hand mixer did not work. Fortunately, we had brought our own hand mixer, so this was not a problem. And the managers sent over a hand can opener. Also, we had brought large pots for Christmas dinner, but since the property had those, we were able to keep ours stored. Unfortunately, the measuring cups were not of great quality and a couple were missing. Same with a couple of the utensils. But, other than that, the house was extremely well stocked. The only other item they did not have was an apple corer and slicer, which we had also brought with us. They had grilling tools, tons of forks, spoons, knives, plastic and metal utensils for every type of food preparation, plates, mugs, etc. However, the knives were not very sharp. A knife sharpener would be great. Basically, it was a great house and worked well for our family, which included 6 of our 8 adult children and siblings, aunts, uncles, a grandbaby. Even those who were supposed to be staying at surfwatch ended up falling asleep on the couch because they didn't want to leave the fun times. Mattresses are fantastic!
