A great experience had by all
My family and I gathered in the area for a handful of days around a recent wedding and had the pleasure of spending our time as guests in Jennifer’s home. Our initial walk-through upon check-in left us excited that we had made the right decision, after a prior stay at another rental house on another service left us disappointed and had us questioning the benefit of a home rental over the standard hotel option when traveling as a group. Thankfully we were in no way disappointed with our choice. It's immediately apparent that the house is full of character and the large open layout on the first floor offered plenty of space for communal gatherings which was a definite plus. The kitchen was fully outfitted, with only a trip to the grocery store required to make it live-in ready. Another nice touch was the abundant labeling of drawers, cabinets, closets and light switches that made it easy to settle right in and feel less like a stranger in someone else’s home. The house featured many amenities that did not go unappreciated, including table games, board games, wifi, a grill, large porch and several watercraft, among other things. The house is also located on a quiet street which set the scene nicely to allow one to take in the calming views out over the sound from the comfort of the swinging bench in the back of the house. The covered porch also provided ample seating for the times when the group wanted to relocate the gathering outside. With plenty of entertainment to go around, we only wish we had more time to take advantage of all the home had to offer. The lack of A/C in the bedrooms presented somewhat of a challenge for those among us who were particularly temperature sensitive in trying to sleep comfortably on a couple of the hotter nights during our stay over the summer, although the presence of ceiling fans in each bedroom and the water's cooling effect did make it a little more manageable. There is an A/C unit in one of the open rooms on the 1st floor. Otherwise the sleeping accommodations met our needs. Jennifer also kindly assisted in reuniting one of us with an item that had been left behind in the house after checkout, which exemplified her desire to ensure that we had a wonderful stay at her home and underscored her willingness to accommodate her guests wherever possible. On the whole, the house, and Jennifer’s hospitality, made for a great time had by all, and we would certainly recommend a stay to others.
